  1. Hi Guys,

    I just installed NFS Shift on this comp, and I get a crash - I cannot figure out why - I ensured that catalyst was running all settings for AA and the other tabs on the lowest possible value:

    AMD Ph II x2 BE 3.2 GHz
    4 GB DDR3
    ATI HD4290 (256MB dedicated - 1.6GB shared VRAM)
    ATI catalyst drivers 10.6
    Windows 7 Ultimate x64
    Disabled Visual Themes and Desktop Composition, and running as Admin.


    Problem signature:

    The RC version of W7 isn't supported by ATI website drivers. That could be the problem.

    I don't have that version installed.

    I installed W7 x64 Ultimate build 7600 RTM. I've never encountered this issue with any other game, even with an older iteration of NFS pro-street.

    That's why I doubt it is the windows version, but could it be the ATI drivers?

    I don't know though, because I installed the latest catalyst drivers after the crash and restarted. I ran the game after restart and still got the same message.

    PS: My apologies for the late reply, I'm currently outside the country and I'm pretty busy with wedding preparations ^_^;;

    Has the game been patched?
