I just installed Alter Ego and it crashes as soon as I hit "play". I searched but did not find a patch for the us version--has anyone else experience problems with this game??

Thanks!

It worked fine on my XP machine. It never crashed once.

YES.Lost my saves!
But honestly don't bother; played about 3-4 hours, what a snore.

Had no problems and really liked it. Good story , graphics and character interaction, just what I look for in a game. Never bored for a minute.

You may have turned them down for a previous game.
What are your system specs ? Here are the system requirements.

Alter Ego would not work on my computer. I suspect the SecuROM copy "protection" was incompatible with my computer because it's caused problems in the past. But the game apparently also needs a higher video card spec than what it lists in the system requirements.

I gave the game away and watched a playthrough on Youtube. This particular playthrough by MrFlameifrit was almost like playing the game yourself

If I hadn't already given it away, I would have sold it because it's not something I'd have wanted to play again. Unlikable characters, a gloomy brown gameworld, and a bad ending. The voice acting was good though, and the thief's accent was particularly charming.

thank you all for your responses. I think I will watch the playthrough and if it looks good I will tinker w my settings but I my personal experience in tinkering is that I ususally mess things up. Alter Ego may just be available on gametz.com soon!
