It could be your video card. The person in ***this thread***
had the crash at the rec room and was told their video card wasn't good enough. Some people at ***Adventuregamers***
seem to be having the same problem.
In ***this thread***
, someone from Focus admits there is a problem with certain ATI video cards, even though they meet the stated requirements.
there is a compatibility problem with ATI RADEON 9x00 series, X300/X600/X800/X1100/X1200 series and XPRESS 200 graphics controller too.
There is no problem with other ATI graphics cards series (X1300 and higher, RADEON HD...).
If you have one of the affected ATI Radeon video cards, I think you'll just have to wait for a fix unless you can get a working save. According to Emily (fov) at Adventuregamers, you may have to get the save from Focus because saves may be tied to your user account.
