Crashes on load screens
So I just bought Psychonauts and whenever there's a loading screen there's a 50% it will crash to desktop. I've looked around for a solution and everyone keeps saying "go to Psychonauts.exe and change the compatibility to windows 95" but I can't find anything relating to compatibility or an ".exe" in the Psychonauts folders. If anyone knows where I can change it that would be much appreciated.

It's an option you get in Windows when you right-click on the exe-file for the game.

I went into C:/program files/steam/steamapps found psychonauts and have been right clicking on everything but nothing about compatibility has come up.

Which version of Windows are you using? I'm not on Windows at the moment but it's possible that it's hidden under another option. Maybe something called launch properties or just properties. I think it might have that shield icon next to it, because it likely requires elevated user rights.

All I know is that I'm using windows Vista, I'm not a very tech savvy person.

Here's an article on How-To Geek showing how to set compatibility mode in Windows Vista[]. You should do that on the Psychonauts.exe you found under C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/ and choose to run it in Windows 95 mode.
