The first game i played (before any of the patches), ran without a single issue to the end of the game. Giddy-up. Ever since the patches have started to roll out, i've been having problems. Initially it was graphic instability (lots of lines and blinking) in the late-game, but now after 1.52 it's crashing at completely random times. I've nerfed down the graphics to medium and played on a standard map, but it crashed earlier than it has on any of my games previous. I feel like every measure i try to implement from the forums here results in more performance issues. I thought my computer met all the recommended specs, so i'm more than a little frustrated that this game isn't working. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Sorry to be "throwing this out there". Fatty.
