Been playing from the beginning with the latest patch, and am presently at the garbage.
whenever i try to get into the cordon from there, either the game CTDs during the loading screen or a few seconds after the level loads. As far as trying to get to dark valley, if i so much as come near one of its level changers, the game CTDs as well.
I have tried with all the graphics set to the lowest, but it still occurs (game runs smooth for me with everything maxed so i know my specs are good, just wanted to check).
Did you tried first going to Agronom Research Facility (Duty Base) and then to Cordon? Or from Dark Valley (Freedom Base) and from there to Cordon. Also, what OS are you running? And which version of CS; Rus, UK, USA, Multi?
i haven't tried agropom, but i can't get into dark valley
running vista 32 USA
ok, correction, it seems that it will crash if i spend around a minute just hanging out in garbage too. Regardless of if i'm going towards a level changer
Alright, try that first. Don't know much about the US version, but do you got a message when it happens? (e.g. xrEngine.exe has stopped working) Look in this topic, I think it is the same issue. http://forums.filefront.com/s-t-l-k-e-r-cs-problems-errors-help/377657-still-getting-ctds-after-new-patch.html As said there, try changing the page file size of windows.
