  • Hey Max, my guess is that this is something related to your graphics drivers. You might want to try updating them before you do anything else. Also, it couldn't hurt to redownload and reinstall the game.
  • I did both.... didn't help...
  • And when you installed the game, you let it update directX, right? You have to be connected to the internet of course for it to work properly.

    Assuming you have already tried that, have you tried lowering your settings all the way down and seeing if it still crashes?

    What about your sound card drivers. It's rare, but sometimes those can cause a crash too.

    If you were experiencing graphical anomalies before the game crashed, your computer might be overheating. Find a temperature monitoring program you like (I prefer SpeedFan myself), and see if W&G is causing your computer to run hot.
