Alrighty, here's the situation: I recently purchased the FOC expansion for my EAW. Installed fine, no problems UNTIL I started playing. Every time I start playing, doesn't matter could be skrimish or campaign mode, the game will lock up for about 30 seconds to a minute and will restart my computer. I thought maybe it was an issue the 1.05 or 1.5 patch not sure which, could solve so I downloaded and installed. Starting playing once more but again it locked up and restarted my computer. I've tried turning on VSYNC, using the lowest picture quality settings, and using the smalled resolution, all at once but still crashes. Also, since I probably will get these questions asked: Did you install any modifications on FOC? No, but there are some on the original EAW. What processor/video card are you using? I have a 3300+ AMD Athlon 64 processor clocked at 2.40GHz, it has an integrated SiS Mirage 2 graphics card, but I use a Nvidia GeForce 6600 graphics card. Does this happen with the original EAW? No.
EAW should be updated with Patch 1.05, and FOC should be updated with Patch 1.1
OK yeah, didn't work. My both my EAW and FOC are up to date.
have you tried to reinstall FoC? you could of installed it improperly (or in the wrong folder) and not notice. what folder did you install it into? and if it is the correct folder then just forget what i said except for the reinstall part
take out your eaw mods, they'll fuck up the foc expansion because foc runs off of eaw.
It seems to be alright now, I auto detected the settings for my graphics card and it worked fine. After a while though I got bored of using the second to lowest setting for picture quality and maxed it out and it still worked fine, bit of lag at first but fine otherwise. Guess it was just a temporary problem.
ok then, i never heard of that problom before

You didn't post your RAM in your specs. The first thing I think of when a computer reboots when trying to play a game is memory issues.
