"Game application has stopped working" - FIXED if you have NVIDIA
I, like many others, haven't been able to play our beloved Oddworld because of this game crash. But people of the steam forums have offered a solution IF you have NVIDIA graphics chip. Being the ignoramous I am I had no idea I had it.

- So use the search function on your computer and type in NVIDIA.
- Click on "NVIDIA Control Panel"
- Go to "Manage 3D Settings" and click on "Global Settings"
- Now under "Preferred graphics processor" change the option from "Auto-select" to "High Performance NVIDIA Processor"
- Hey Presto! The game works!

Hope this helps anyone as it helped me.

Holysock92, I just reinstalled this game and have Nvidia Driver Version 306.23. Under my Global Settings I don't see a "Preferred graphics processor". Are you running the same driver version?

It says my driver version is 8.17.12.6683. But here's a print screen[i.imgur.com] of my NVIDIA control panel just to be sure.

Yes! Thank you. I just purchased the game, and it kept crashing after the introductory logo. Now I followed your advice, and presto, the game works. Now if only I could get Abe's Odessy and Exodus to work.....

I believe there's a patch or something someone put up on the Oddworld Steam Forums that fixes that.
