Default Load screen lock up

Ok i havent had ANY problems with this game until now, no lag nothin.

At this load screen SiN locks up EVERY single time, and when it locks up i have to turn my computer off and restart (when i play games i shut everything else off) So i dont have the ability to Alt+TAB out.


Here is a picture of the screen that it freezes on.

We found this issue.

If you are running a card capable of DirectX 9, please set your system to DX9 until we get the fix up.

Any updates on this bug will be posted here:

Going by memory here, but at the Sin: Emergence start up screen select options/ Video/ Advanced Options. Then select the DX level at the bottom right of the menu.

Ok i went to the options and went to change it from 8.1 to 9 but 9 isnt listed. I checked what version i have on my computer and it says directx 9.0 is installed. So i dunno what to do.

well I can tell on the previous menu you are running at a very small resolution, try upping the resolution both ingame and at the desktop (preferably both at the same size).

I suspect DX9 may not be supported at that particular size, but it is just a somewhat befuddled guess...

Good news there, a post in the thread mentioned states they have located the issue, they state the fix should be straightforward from a coding perspective, they just need time to get it to valve and let valve get it on their servers.

Sadly no estimate was given.

But when they do state the fix is available you will need to exit Sin Episodes and exit steam completely. then restart it again once it is complpetely exited. The fix will most likely download and install if it is available and then you should be set. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
