Demo played fine but now I am getting blue screen every 5 minutes, regardless of settings. Apparently I am not the only HD 6970 user having problem: steam thread: http://forums.steamp...d.php?t=1935798
Please have a look at this issue.

File listed as the cause of trouble: Atimtag.sys

YES i couldn't read my blue screen cause my system has some feeling that my screen is 3 times larger than it actually is when it crashes. Still, a patch on the specific issue would be appreciated.

Also, for some giggles, as the demo did play out fine, i am going to do a bit of investigating for now and see if the files can be interchangeable, though this is highly unlikely, the game doesn't work in the first place so why not xD

Problem is solved for me now. I enforced 'performance' at 'texture filtering quality' and disabled 'surfce format optimization' at 'Catalyst A.I.' tab.

No, that didn't work, What exactly are all the settings you are using for all your gaming 3D application settings?

It did crash again, but after 2.5 hours of undisturbed play. I play on default CCC settings with only exceptions listed earlier.

Have you updated your driver?

Edit: This is what I could find on it:

I have, i had an older driver and played the game and it blue screened updated the driver and...blue screened.

but now i am on windows 7 and i find that i have not blue screened, or at least not yet, so unless i just somehow am having the luckiest run without a blue screen, i can not tell you exactly the issue regarding windows vista, but it would seem that its the OS itself in coordination with the ATI HD6970. I probably could have spent more time investigating the actual issue itself through diagnostics and looked to see what was the problem exactly but I was going to clean install windows 7 anyway so i didn't really care as much.

I tried different drivers. And yes, I am still on vista. I guess I will have to wait for US release so devs treat such issues more seriously...
Good I have xbox version too.
