So im doing yet another run through the game and am in the red forest/military wharehouse doing the main quest. now the moment enter back into red forest BAM! the screen shakes and an emission explosion sound is heard to signify that an Emission is coming, head for the hills.

This where the problem is occuring, the moment i get the message to find cover, my game is simply freezing and i have to ctrl alt delete out. This is also only happening in Red Forest aswell iget the emissions in other zones such as cordon, garbage and dark valley and have no problem, but in red valley its Freeze City.

This is with patch 0004 too. Anyone else had this problem happen anywhere in the game?

I've not even gotten any unscripted emissions so far :/ How often are they supposed to occur?

I spent about one in-game week cycling between Cordon, Garbage and the Dark Valley, and I got three emissions. All I was doing were side missions - fetch the item, capture/defend the camp, etc, just to get some money. Two happened at Cordon, and one at the Garbage, and they all occured when I was trading, repairing and upgrading my gear.

I think it's alot more random then in OL for example. The first time I played I only got the scripted one in Swamp when you start, then one in Cordon right after we clear the Vehicle Depot of the Military guys. I played maybe 5 more (in-game) days and I never got another one. I had been all through Swamp, Cordon, Garbage and Dark Valley and never had another one. Now I've started over a couple times since then and I have yet to receiver any since I've been to Cordon, kinda wierd I would say.

Wierder is that I've only ever gotten blowouts right after entering a zone. Never while I was wandering around in it...

i get the blow outs all the time and bloody hell they are starting to be a fucking pain in the arse. mostly is because the time to get to cover is just oh so slow. it might say ive only got 20sec till it hits but it takes over a minute for it to occur irt.

Check me on this, but, when it says 40 seconds, it actually seems to mean 40 minutes in game time, the timer ticks off at the rate of minutes on the game clock.

Now I'm wondering if the way the game is generating them is affected by hardware or something...

So you're thinking... the better / smoother the game runs on your machine, blowouts will occur more often?
