I got SOF2 the other day but am having a slight problem...

The first problem I had was not being able to see the logo movies (the ones that play when the game starts) I could hear them but all I could see was a strobe effect... I have since fixed the problem by upgrading my graphics drivers from Detonator 3.0 to 3.2

This did not however fix my second problem I can start a game ok, but if I try and go back to the menu or console the computer hangs, after a while it crashes completely meaning I have to reset... the only way I currently have to quit the game is to do a quicksave and reset the computer :confused:

My version of SOF2 has been upgraded to gold which didnt help My system is: AMD Athlon XP 2800+ 1280MB (1.25GB) RAM Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy 2 (All the latest patches/drivers) ATI Radeon 9500 (Detonator 3.2 Drivers) -Running dual monitors one 17" TFT and one 15" CRT... TFT is primary Windows XP Pro (With Service Pack 1 and all other updates)

Any ideas? I really would like to be able to play the game without it crashing the whole PC every time I press the wrong key :/

Well i can tell you it's probably nothing wrong with ur PC, unless there's an incompatibilty with the 2 monitors, which I highly doubt and this problem would be a little easier to solve had you not been able to start the program whatsoever. But seeing as the game starts up and then crashes upon quitting to the start menu I really dont know what to tell you.

Maybe try running 1 monitor then the other? I dunno im just taking potshots right now.

Fill me in a little more on ur situation, I'll think about it a little harder.

Good Luck :D

Just tried upgrading my monitor drivers as well, using the new Nfren drivers instead of the default pnp drivers for the TFT monitor... didnt make any difference at all, not that I was expecting it to really

Using one monitor doesnt help :/

Just a little more details on the problem... it occurs whenever I leave the actual game (the bit you walk arround in) either to go to the main menu, or the objectives screen... I suspect it is any screen that employs a mouse cursor it crashes before it does anything so if I press tab to look at the objectives, I can still see the game but cannot walk arround or do anything...

That give you any hints?

Btw: Official Raven forum is probably the best place for these kind of problems...
