I wonder if this will be another Grand Theft Auto 4 type scenario?

When I tried the Steam and 2 other downloads, they crash at the same point.

They load up to the game menu and when you select play game it loads 1/2 ways and then crashes. It seems nobody has tracked down the reason why some gamers can't play the game beyond a Sound Card and video issue.

It's pissed me off, I've tried everything including uninstalling and reinstalling my sound card drivers. I hope this doesn't happen with other games like Batman: Arkham Asylum. The weird thing is Windows reports my sound card as fully functional and that there are no problems with it.
The FEAR 2 Demo is working fine here on my antiquated hardware. The problem seems to be with specific hardware/driver combinations. I'm sure the Monolith team will have this figured out before the game actually gets released.

A few years ago, releasing game demos before the actual release was the norm. Nowadays, you're lucky to get one at all. Part of why releasing a demo is so important is that it allows the developers to squash more bugs before the game's actual release. (Maybe GTA4 should have had a demo.;) *cough*)

Nope, I tried it but the error still occurs, thanks for the suggestion though.
I even tried wiping and reinstalling the latest sound drivers from Creative, no dice.
The latest beta or WHQL?

(p.s.: your attack points in Disgaea must be over 50 mil? :evil: Seriosly, though... that's kinda impossible even with hacking)

And anyway, just checked the FEAR 2 demo on my PC, too. Onboard sound chip works just fine. I guess this only happens to discrete sound cards.
oO Damn. I just picked up Disgaea 3 yesterday.:p

Perhaps disabling your SoundBlaster through Device Manager and enabling onboard sound (if your motherboard has this) to see if it crashes then. If you don't have onboard sound, try disabling your SoundBlaster and running the game without it.
