Happened to me too when I entered full screen mode. Wouldn't boot up the game again after it crashed. I just had to switch to windowed in order for it to load... hopefully something that will be addressed in the next patch.

This is still happening randomly. I am assuming this problem is from the game, but I am not seeing any other post about this issue.

I have done all the troubleshooting. It is either the game or my video card is broken. I can run Call of duty, Mafia 2, SC2, Futuremark no problems.

No one else is haing these issues?

yup. confirmed.

i had three crashes yesterday. twice related to windows trying to tell me new software was ready to download... and the third time the game just crashed. each time only a little box telling me some directx error occurred and the game needs to quit - which it does - promptly, how polite of it. :)

btw - i'm running in full screen mode.

Yea its just very odd. Examples

Gridania: Lightning makes the screen flash red where there should be lightning
LL: Sometimes water does not load, and it just shows a black void.

I am not certain, but it seems I get the direct X error around crafters.

Normally with those issues I would think my video card is dying, but I cannot duplicate the issue in any other program.
