Game Crashes Every 30-40 Mins
I constantly get game crashes every 30 mins with this game. sometimes it will be 10 mins depending on the section. anybody have any fixes for this? game seems really broken.

Nope it's not a gfx issue as far as I can see it does seem to happen randomly and there is no telling when it will quit on you.

There are soo many bugs in the PC version of this game I'd be surprised if Activision said they beta tested it at all.

One section of game play involved you fighting the Rihno in the sewers I fought him for 30mins before I realise what I had to do and that was because the indicators only showed up for a microsecond and not long enough before you had to dodge again.

I enjoy Spiderman but I think this game could be a whole lot better if it had received decent bug testing.

Whom ever tested this game needs to be fired from their jobs.

Not every 30 mins, but have had it crash twice today while playing over maybe 3-4hrs :/

i was able to play for 3 hours the first time without any problems. eversince then, the game crashes after 1~ hour of play. a friend of mine said that it sounds like an autosave issue.

took me a while to figure it out as well. i kept seeing the hint, but only for a split second. i would try to trigger it, but kept zipping over to rhino, who proceeded to turn me into street pizza.

was hoping someone woulda found a workaround. this is disgusting. I paid 50$ for a game that crashes all the time and it's CLEARLY the game itself.

I turned off vsync and it seemed to do the trick .....i guess.... haven't crashed yet on me and I played for about 3hrs yesterday. Will try again today though i highly doubt its that simple of a fix. How I wish it was. :(

Same here. V-sync or not, it just keeps crashing constantly. :/ maybe without motion blur...
But heck, all the crap they put in the game should just work dammit! What`s the use if it all has to be disabled to stop this unoptimized piece of crud from crashing!?

I agree. If they put the options for high video settings and your computer can obviously handle it, there is no reason why the game should crash so spectacularly at random moments.
Captain Electric Nov 23, 2012 @ 12:40am 
Happening for me too, but honestly, I consider it a small price to pay for an otherwise spectacular game. The crashes are few and far between since I toned texture filtering down to 8x (at the high resolution of 1920x1080, I can't tell the difference between 8x and 16x anyway), and shadows down to High (from "Amazing"--and again, can't really tell the difference). Lighting on the other hand really needs to stay at the highest "Amazing" setting in this game if your PC can handle it--much of the look and feel of the game is dependent on the lighting.

In those rare times I crash, I CTRL+ALT+DEL to the Task Manager if I need to get my mouse cursor back, and generally (not always) wait for the game to resync by watching the Steam icon in my task tray. Sometimes I just end the process and jump back in. Why? Because so far, a crash hasn't set me back more than about five or ten minutes of game play (usually LESS than five), and my "punishment" (*rolls eyes*) often consists of getting to pummel a group of bad guys again. I think this is the only game I've ever played where crashes actually ADDED more fun to my game on several occasions.

It is what it is, I don't expect the crash bug to get fixed, but it's an amazing super hero game and I'll be coming back to it for a very long time.

Me too Captain! I am addicted to this and it's amazing! I hope Valve will contact ACTIVISION and get this fixed!!

</gameconfig> maybe adjusting these will change the settings? Anyone wanna experiement?

Hope this will help the community because modding is so easy and i am glad i found the config. We can fix this maybe?!

Personally I think the game crashing is a Steam issue. When I load up the game and get to the initial menu screen I click on Quit, as the game goes back to windows desktop a steam window pops up saying trying to start game, then it switches to Failed to Start Game (app already running), this is the message I get when the game crahses mid game. I'll see idf I can get onto steam about it.
Kal-El Dec 25, 2012 @ 7:08pm 
The crashing issue is a known issue related to V-sync and AA. I beat the game by having these disabled. You might get crashes but it won't happen frequently if you disable AA.

I agree, its awful, I paid for all the DLCs and discovered how terrible this is.
