thanks, ill go try that
ok i dont want to get my hopes up but i was just playing for an hour straight and it has been working fine but if one thing can be said, i think that shows that its not the graphics card overheating
It's definitely an encouraging sign
alright, ive basically been playin the game on and off all day, and i think its only frozen up once? maybe twice, idr i opened it and closed it like 10 or more times though throughout the day 1 time for about 2 hours straight, so right now at worst its just a small glitch somewhere, which i think i can live with if it gets bigger again ill probably post another thread :-P but as for now i think we can call this thread closed
