Vampire Bloodlines Crashes in First Cut Scene

  1. Hello --

    I'm having quite a problem getting Bloodlines to run. The first issue I encountered had to do with with my graphics resolution and refresh rate. I had to change it to 800x600 with a refresh rate of 60 (for my monitor and as an override in Directx). Those changes let me at least start the game but it soon crashes during the first cut scene. I have applied patch 3.3.

    My PC should have enough horsepower to run the game without any problems:

    Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 2 (build 2600)

    3.20 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
    16 kilobyte primary memory cache
    2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache

    Board: 915G-ICH6
    Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
    BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG 04/22/2005

    2048 Megabytes Installed Memory

    NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT [Display adapter]
    Default Monitor

    Creative SB X-Fi

    This is the crash description found in my 'Bloodlines' folder:

    This kind of error logs would be much easier to read if people would just attach the file itself instead of copying & pasting it to the message box.

    Sorry. I was never able to get around the problem. I ended up uninstalling the game.
