Dear Lauri:

First of all, congratulations for such a brilliant and refreshing game.
Changing topic, I cannot play the demo because it always crashes after the initial cut scene when a map appears on screen. I would really appreciate some help on this problem.

Thank you very much and keep up all the good work.

My specs are:

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX 9650
Geforce GTX 260 SLI
4 gb RAM
Windows Vista 64 bits
Nvidia 186.18 drivers

Thank you for your help.

I have already installed physx 9.09.0428 and I have the same problem: it crashes when the map is on screen.

Once again I appreciate your help.

Try installing it with quiet mode.

Start > Run > type "cmd"

Then CD (change directory) to we're the phyx installer is located.

Use the quiet switch, then install.

It should look something similar to this: c:\downloads\PhysX_9.09.0428_SystemSoftware.exe \quiet

I will ask programmers to check more frequently here also.

So far problems have been caused if you have AA on, or PhysX driver version. Try disabling AA after you have checked all drivers are newest :D

Thank you sooooo much Ark and Lauri.

I deleted the PhysX_9.09.0428 and re-installed it and everything is working to perfection.

By the way, it looks and plays very impressive.

Best regards,

I've got very similar problem but my PC reboot after the map :( I can play only for 1-5 seconds and reboot. All my drivers are up to date ( also tried instaling phisx in quiet mod ) My last though was maybe a problem with overheating but i checked all the temps and it's all good.

ps. Sorry for my bad english.
ps. 2 - no problems with other games.

adk, sorry to hear that. Can you post your system specs?

So you see the game, and you can move in the first level with the Thief for a tiny bit, and then it reboots? Do you see any graphical errors, or does it look ok?

Rebooting is not very nice. :( I'm very unsure what could cause this, but I think you should try lower resolution and graphics settings at least, and maybe check if there's any options in the graphics card driver control panel. If the problem persists I'll try to get our programmers to think about this on Monday.

Thanks for the answer and sorry for lack of info ;]

About the specs: it's old junk but meet the minimal requirements.
Athlon XP 3200+, 1,5 GB Ram, NVidia 7600 GS ( No parts were overclocked ), Win XP SP3 ( 5-6 days old )

Yes i can move and in this short time i didnt see any graphical bugs/glitches. Also tried to run the game with lowest details/resolution but this didnt change anything.
Here is my minidump file ( or rather what i get from this file with windebugger )

Ok, that goes over my head. We'll need to have a programmer look at this. If you don't mind the rebooting, you could try different graphics card drivers (older versions, newer ones, etc), but that's the only advice I can give right now.

ATM tried 186.18 and 185.85 drivers and still the same, later will try older . BTW if You have a contact with programmer, can You ask him about more detailed requirements - most interesting part for me is about SSE2 instructios in cpu - are they required?

I have the same problem like FRANCICO , but I haven't nvidia graphic card but ATI HD 4870.
When it crashes there is error something about cuda.dll , maybe the main problem will be in PhysX but I have ATI .
Can you help me ?
My PC config. (Core 2 duo E8400 3.6 ghz , ATI 4870 512 MB , 4 GB ram , VISTA 64-bit .... Catalyst 9.6 )

I have a ATI card and it worked for me.

Install Trine, then unistall the Physx drivers which are installed with Trine. Then download this: and install in quiet mode with the instructions listed above.

You need to have Physx installed even if your using an ATI card, beacuse it will shift the processing to the CPU.

Sorry for the delay (and for the total lack of responses on some of the above issues, I'm assuming they're solved one way or another). The first suggestion is to try lower graphics settings. Random crashes like that tend to have something to do with the hardware, even if sometimes there can be a software bug as well. So lower graphics settings and no antialiasing would be the first thing to try. Let me know.
