Hey I was getting this CTD every time at the beginning of the game when the Blades fight the assassins, and I determined that it is somehow related to the blood effects, and that by changing the bUseRefractionShader to 0 in the oblivion.ini file, it prevents the crash. However, I have heard that this "solution" causes problems of its own. Does anyone have a better fix or workaround for this? Have you guys heard of this issue before?

Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4 GHz G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) GeForce 8800 GTS (320 MB)

Windows XP SP2 (32 bit)

And yes, I have the latest drivers.


Thus, I refute thee.

Do you have the latest drivers? ;) No just kidding, I've never heard of this before, but your graphics card is by far good enough to run the game. So, I would suspect that either, there is a problem with the game, or the INI itself. So the game is updated to 1.2 then? Try deleting the INI in the my documents folder; you'll have to set up all the graphics settings for the game, and redo any control scheme that you might have set up. And what problem does setting bUseRefractionShader to 0 cause anyway?
