Hey guys,
Like most people I've just fired the game up and so far it seems to have plenty of promise.
My issue is at random my laptop crashes when playing the game for no reason.
I could play for 10 minutes or 20 minutes and it just crashes and my laptop becomes completely powered down and I have to turn it back on and reboot it.
It only does this playing the game.
I thought it was a heat thing with my laptop so I made sure there was plenty of airflow under it but it still happened.
I ran the benchmark and apparently my laptop can run the game so I'am just wondering does anyone else have the same problem?
Maybe its a game bug?????
Any help would be great, thanks :)

It sounds like you are overheating for sure. Just opening up the air ports may not be cutting it. Get a program like real temp or one of the many others and see what your cpu is running at. If you find hot temps you may have to look into doing something. I'm no laptop cooling expert so I would leave that to those who run laptops to try to help you with. All I can say is it def sounds like you have a very bad heat problem.

I agree, sounds like an overheating issue.

This game will run your processor nearly 100% and your CPU 100% for sure so heat generation is pretty much at the max.

If you're not getting a blue-screen (even very brief) it's probably heat.

Thanks guys, I'll try running a pedestal fan facing the back of my laptop and see how that goes.
No blue screen of death just a full shutdown.
Its frustrating when your getting into the game and it just dies on you.
