Hi! I wanted to know if anyone else is having the same problem. The game randomly crashes every five or ten minutes. I am playing with this config : VERY HIGH quality , 1920x1080 , no AA , no tesselation, no Vsync.
My specs :
AMD Phenom 2 x6 1090T
ATI Radeon HD 6870
Windows 7 64 bit.
8gb ram .
All my drivers are updated.
FPS : i get between 40 to nearly 60 fps .

Please, help ! :c

I can't get past the shooting range because my game will crash just like yours, after 5 minutes.
It doesn't seem bound to any specific point in the level. I can run through most of the map and then crash, after some time.

I also have a 6870. Overclocked or not- didn't make a difference.
Also a Phenom 2 x4 955BE
Win7 64bit
Game runs great on near max settings. Then it dies.

I tried the lowest possible settings (resolution still 1080), it lasted longer but still crashed after a couple more minutes.
I tried the same thing as you, but the same :c It gets me off my nerves ! xD

Was opening a thread about that, but no1 responses. Good thing i'm not alone.
Hey guys! I've just downloaded the latest catalyst version (13.5) and so far i haven't got any other crash ! :D I've been playing for almost an hour , and so far no problems! try with that!

I had 13.2. Updated to 13.4 to test. Started a new game.
I've noticed one difference, the weapon boards at the armory- they had a lamp light up!
I remember asking myself why the hell did they make the weapon selection part so dark...
Right now the game runs without a problem, but I'm taking my time through the levels.

I have no idea wtf could be the cause or if that lamp and new game had anything to do with it.
Good luck :(

I just this minute fired up the game for the first time. And get passed the initial scene ( I wont specify so as not to ruin it for anyone) however when you wake up for the first time and exit your room, from there I get terrible graphic glitches. Walls missing, characters heads missing, graphics flashing and large graphic mountains appering infront of you. Thats the experience I've had so far.

Im running the game on these settings: -

very high
no ssaa
AF x16
tesselation on
physx on
no v sync

My specs: -

16gb ram

Has anyone else had the problems I've mentioned above. I too have encountered slight micro stuttering.

I'm having this exact issue as well. If I play the opening the same way each time, taking the time to listen to characters and stuff, the game always crashes at the shooting range.

GTX 670

I have PrecisionX installed like the guy above me but I haven't used it to overclock anything. I use it mostly for the fan profile as the default one for my card is terrible. I'll try uninstalling it and reinstalling it and seeing if that helps.

Edit: Completely uninstalling PrecisionX and reinstalling it didn't fix the crashing. Still having the exact same issue.

Hello guys! I haved too those crashing problems and grapihc glitches. But most problems are gone when I dropped screen resolution at 1920x1080 to 1024x..., everything else are high and ssaa x2. Still game looks great at my 32"lcd tv monitor.

I was having the same problem, with the "executable has stopped working" message. I figured out the problem. It's not a corrupt file or any software issue. It's Heat! This game runs real hot, hotter then most. It's running hotter then Crysis 3 did. And I have a liquid cooled cpu and 7 fans running! But, once I turned up the fans and opened the case a few inches, the problem went away. The game crashes when it gets hot. Now, it's working great.

According to catalyst, eveytime i play it, i get 70 Cº , but the game stopped crashing when i got the 13.5 version of the software ! And runs great :)

The only problems I have been getting is a pause from time to time playing on STEAM and after setting up the CPU for "high performance" to stop "Core Parking" it plays smooth as glass with the occassional graphic glitch of thngs in mid air or khan shoots at floor in final battle scene....etc. I am running an AMD 965 black edition 3.5 quadcore processor with a geforce 550ti at 2gb of ddr5 mem. 16GB ram all this on a SABORTOOTH 990fx motherboard.

My questions for you guys is , does anyone before launching Metro Last Light get an error that reads Last time you launch the game it was unsuccessful. Do you want to run the game in safe mode, yes or no. Not sure if anyone has gotten to the church part yet. My game crashes as soon as the new chapter screen comes up after you see "Anna " "the sniper girl" you meet early in the game. As soon as the chapter screen pops up, the narrator is able to say the first couple words, but he doesn't get a chance to finish the last part of the sentence of the Through Hell chapter and the game crashes to desktop.

Implementing the fixes here stopped my game from crashing any more.

i do the firing range, walk away, and the game crashes everytime. Every single time. Resolultion change, lower settings, safe mode, disabled norton and windows security, opened the case, updated driver, reinstalled game on steam, restarted pc. Absolutely nothing will let me play this game past the firing range.
