This is driving me crazy. In the two hours that I've owned the game, I've encountered countless instances where the game would simply stop, the music would stutter endlessly, and I had no other option but to hard reset my computer.
I've never had this issue with any other game. It's unplayable, and though I dunno how computers work, I can't imagine hard resetting is healthy for my system. I've tried many of the recommendations on these forums, but nothing helps - the game simply doesn't work.
When I do manage to play the game between the stall-outs, it's oftentimes very choppy despite fraps claiming I'm getting 60fps.

Let me know if anyone has any sort of diagnosis or whether or not there are any fixes planned for down the road.
