  1. Alright so I just downloaded this game and when I run it 2 out of 3 times I will get bluescreened. The other 1 out of 3 times ill get an error that says. "Game Initialization failed"
    I searched the forums for this game and noone has answers for this. Especially the blue screen. Here is what the blue screen says.


    STOP:0x00000050 (C0xF8FC777C, 0x00000001, 0X80409B68, 0X0000

    I have only gotten blue screened by trying to run this game btw. So im not sure on how to go about fixing BSOD probs.

    Also to be noted I am sure my PC is clean of viruses and malware (I just today got off a thread from a previous problem with infections and my PC was declared clean.)

    And I updated my DirectX and Graphics card driver and the problem persists.

    My computer also meets all system requirements for the game.

    I see we are supposed to attach minidumps but im not sure on how to do that. If someone could tell me I gladly will. And if you need me to post my specs I will.


    Can someone help mee please ahaha

    here are the minidumps.

    What version of Windows are your running, and what is the game you are trying to run?

    All but one of your dumps tells that the crash was caused by your NetGear USB Wireless adapter driver. I'd suggest you to check whether an updated driver is available and install it.
