Anyone elses game freezing?


Recommended Posts

Well I cant play for more than 15 minutes without my game freezing. Its weird b/c just the Video freezes, if I press the move keys I can hear everything going on in the background, like shuffling, firing, etc.

I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem.

System Specs:

AMD 4000+

7800 GTX

X-FI Music

2 GBs Ballistx

Im having this problem now as well. It wasnt an issue before, but it seems to be occuring more and more. I cant go 10minutes without a freeze.

Keeping the physx driver open doesnt help. Any other ideas?

I cant help think that this is a stunning game, thats ruined from countless major bugs such as this.

PC Specs

Windows XP

64Bit XP3000

1gb Geil RAM

GF6600 GT, newest drivers installed

Abit KN8 Mobo, onboard sound

I have had this issue too. And yes it were increasing up to the point were I only had time to browse the settings. I guess it is a driver issue, I am at it atm. (have sent for a new HD now, unrelated problem though).

Onboard sound on a Gigabyte K8N-SLI nf4

Are you Overclocking ?

Is the 7800 GTX getting too hot ? [ventilation]

I get the same thing usually 20 min. into the game and right before a save point...blank screen but sounds intact, you can even activate the map, change weapons, etc., but no joy.

A couple of days ago a new one popped up... the game totally freezes, no interaction and no sound, but a nice little partial screen of a blue sky... is'nt that nice! :thumbsup:

I get the same thing...it either freezes the screen as is, but I still hear the sounds going and can do things with the keyboard and hear that, but no movement on the screen...OR...it freezes with mostly a black screen (with a horizon at the top.).

This happens after a while in one mission. So maybe this is a heat issue, I will have to test that out.

OK...this is not a heat issue in my case. I thought it might be as the weather was hot here for a while when I was playing. However, today the temp in my house is 62 and the video card is not getting hot, and I am still freezing (Quaterback Save Point 3). It seems rather random where I freez, but it happens so often that I have been stuck on this part of the SP game for over a week now. EVERY time I try to get past this portion of the game I freez at one point or another before reaching the next save point.

Have you ever had the same type of freeze when just playing around at the settings menu a bit longer than usual? I have had that, it seems to be an issue tied to the time GRAW has been going, not how long you have been in actual game play.

This problem *appears* to have stopped for me (hasnt happened in about an hour of gameplay, before, it was happening every 5-10 minutes). I upgraded to the latest (non-beta) nVidia drivers.

Is this an nVidia driver issue?

I guess so. I got NVidia and I got a hunch that my drivers for the motherboard got a hit in the first installation. I will get back with a new HD in a day or so. Then I will do driver installations as correct as anyone else.

What drivers did you update when you did the update?

Yes, usually when I press esc for a 5 minute period and go back in it does this.

One of my clanmates had this problem and fixed it. I'll ask him to come over and give you guys a hand.

Please do.

OK. The one thing all of you have in common is Nvidia. Please try the following:

1) Install coolbits

2) After installing Coolbits you will have a couple more options in the Nvidia Panel...specifically a function called "Frames to Render Ahead"

3) Change that from 3 to 0 and hit Apply.

Let me know if that fixes it.

I have googled NVTray and NVTweek which I downloaded and installed and I did the same for Coolbits so I can try GHOST Sup's remedy to fixing the freezing problem but I don't know anything about how get Coolbits to work :unsure:

I cant find the option "frames to render ahead" to change it from 3 to 0 please help me to get Coolbits working so I can continue to play GRAW.
