i remember posting this problem in the v.2.0. bug report, which everyone promptly ignored. so this time i'll create an entire topic for it hoping that that will catch people's eyes.
basically, here's how it goes:
1. i start playing the game.
2. some period of time passes.
3. game spontaneously decides to freeze. it's always during an effect, it always involves having 50% of my cpu being used by the program, fate.exe's memory usage turns about twice as big as usual, and it has to be force-closed. afterwards, usually another process starts doing the same thing. and in certain other cases, this will continue until my compy crashes.
it's been a problem since v.2.0, it's still there in the full version, it can't be caused by a virus on my compy because i had to wipe and recover the OS two days ago, and it can't be caused by another program because of the same reason; right now there's nothing on my compy other than the ones that came w/ it.
i run a windows xp service pack 2 on an HP w/ 2 gigs of ram and 2.41 gHz cpu, so i don't think it's any problems w/ the computer not able to handle it. i'm fairly sure that i'm the only one this is happening to but it's annoying and i want to be able to play fate/stay night like everyone else *tear*. oh, and i have nvidia and therefore nview if that helps.
any advice or help is appreciated. thx.
one more thing. the longer the interval between two playings, the longer the game runs before freezing.
