Thanks for the support, guys
No results yet, as voting hasn't started. It'll probably start in a week or so.
Ask them to install the latest DirectX end user runtime.
Thanks Ash, I'll let them know. Hopefully that'll take care of it. I've gotten a roughly equal number of "this game is great" and "this game crashes on me" responses so I was getting a little worried.
And I know that everyone should have their DirectX updated anyway, I just hope the hassle of having to do that doesn't affect my votes
On an unrelated note, my hard drive crashed last night. My internet cut out, so I did the usual "reset router/reset computer" thing, and whaddaya know, my computer wouldn't reboot. It just popped up with "Disk read error." I was pretty worried there for a while, but then I swapped my master and slave drives and installed windows on the new master, and the old drive is still readable (it just won't boot). I thought I'd lost all my work, but thankfully it's still there. Crisis averted.
Now if only I can get it connected to the internet . Ugh, I hate having to reconfigure my damned network.
