Bought the long awaited game, installed it (and DirectX 9.0 supplied in the game)

The movies don't run!!!! Only sound. Games worked, but exiting the game crashed the PC and eventually killed it....

I suspect that the cordless keyboard could be involved...any other ideas?

*off to visit Tombraider programmers with an AK*...:cry:

Oh, yes, downloaded their fucking patch too, that one could have been the slayer of my PC...

Did you buy a used PC off Darkstar recently?

Check your old games, if your lucky they all run, but with D9, some older ones won't. I guess to move forward and in optimizing they left some stuff out - though sometimes you have to do that. 9.1 is to address some of that along with further optimizations and hopefully an uninstall program if they haven't already decided to put one in, as when it was released it didn't have an uninstall.

As for Tomb Raider, I heard nothing but garbage about it - so unless your a die hard fan, it may be more of a frustration than a game.

You've had a lucky escape, the game sucks.

I've read several review of it. They're fun, because they ALL hate the game, the bugs, and the general pimping of substandard Lara on the unsuspecting masses.

Reviews are at least good for checking these kinds of problems. If the reviewer can't get it to run stably on their X.XGHz XXXXmegs DDR monstrosity and can't say anything nice about the game when they're probably being paid to, you KNOW it's bad.
