It basically appears to be "minor" gameplay bug fixes for people who can already play the game (with bugs of course) and while that is great for those who CAN play the game it doesn't really help those of us that are unable to play due to technical problems.

"Chess in particular had always annoyed him. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the kings lounged about doing nothing that always got to him; if only the pawns united, maybe talked the rooks around, the whole board could've been a republic in a dozen moves." - Commander Vimes in Thud! by Terry Pratchett

I think they're working on the core issues for those who can't even start the game as well - they've said so in the forums multiple times.

The crashes at load make the game long. And one section at level 7 I had to change resolution to 1268 from 1920 to get past a slide show. Then it went away and crashed to desktop. My nvidia 7950 gtx had to be swapped out for an ATI 1800 (Backup). Probably non game related but the trusty Nvidia card croaked under the pressure (embarassed?). Sticky fireballs are fun. Sound loops then crash then reboot are not. No showstoppers yet. Alot longer than 10 hours and still fun.

Is that because of all of the crashes? I don't recall how long it took me, but I don't think of it as particularly long.

I've been most of the day trying to get thru Level 8. Crashes galore and rebooting and load times take up the rest. I'm patient but how does anyone expect a new player to take this crap compared to a console? I changed video cards and am considering a windows reinstall to clean out this garbage cause It never should have been released. Steam has no standards to send this out. but I'll finish this game if I live long enough.
Edit: Tried some Gothic 3 and got stuck in a tree. That's it for me today.
