UT3 freezing my PC
I just bought UT3 from Steam, however I can't even get through the first level. I had the same issue with the game Borderlands, which leaves me to believe it is something related to the Physix software.
Even without a certain event being require to the game freezing (catching health, cathing weapon, explosion), when I'm 5 minutes into the game, my whole PC freezes, and I have no other choice than to turn if off on the power button, leaving me with no error message to show.
I just ran the game at 100% with absolutely no graphic enhancement, everything at 0%, excluding the Hardware Physics enabled. Everything else is at 0% or Low, so I think it is an option on the graphic selection which causes the freezing...
My Pc specs are:
i7 2670 QM @ 2.20GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M
PS: Every graphic driver is updated, already tried to redownload the game.
Anything in event viewer? start>run>eventvwr.msc It can be a lot of things. What kind of frames are you getting in game? stat fps
On the event viewer I only have the warnings of the computer being shut down incorrectly (I had to switch it off on the power button). As for the fps, I register 80 to 120, on full details, depending on what's on the screen.
