Game crahes when entering factory

Postby Davken » Mon 5 Apr 2010 19:34

Dug up my old copy of Syberia 1 (8 years since I've played it, sweet memories) and successfully installed it on my pc: vista 64 bit, phenom X4 940, gtx285, 4gb ram, etc ...

The game runs smoothly until I visit the automaton factory in the very beginning: each time I open the gate and walk to the fountain the game crashes. The screen with the fountain loads initially but then the game crashes (return to desktop). I have installed patch 3 and I am running the game in compatibility XP mode and tried playing around with the settings but nothing works; the game crashes each time when entering the Voralberg factory. Changing compatibility to Win98 doesn't help either (game doesn't start at all then).

Does anybody have an idea how to solve this, or, alternatively, a save game?

thanks


EDIT: found similar threads @gamespot and gog.com about the exact same problem and installing the very latest nvidia drivers (197.xx) seems to do the trick. will try tomorrow

Solved by installing 197.13 :-)
