    I donĀ“t think is just this game, I have really big problems dealing with games under unreal engine 3.

    I have crashes almost all the time with Strangehold, Bioshock and MoH Airborne, I am using a MSI 800 Ultra OC, but I have to underclock it to play these games without problems :S

    I was unable to get it to run on my setup with 5 different drivers tried
    using my WinXP SP2 install, which is about 2 years in service.
    No (unsolvable) problems with other games during that time.
    Stranglehold would start, but upon 'New game' hangs forever on 'Loading...'
    with 100% CPU and Retail-Stranglehold.exe not responding.
    No BSOD though.
    Edit: Oh, forgot! The SP part would not start;..but the MP part just fired up
    fine on XP also.
    -
    Next, suspecting underlying unknown problems, took an new drive and
    installed an fresh XP SP2 with all relevant drivers and updates.
    Same error, not loading. Odd.
    -
    Tried on my second machine, which only slightly differs
    (Opt170, NForce3 MB, 7800GS+)
    same error. Ehh? Now thats some *serious* error with either the game
    or anything on my PCs preventing it from finally loading.
    -
    Wipped the fresh XP install, installed Vista, installed Stranglehold and
    played it from beginning to end in one sit;..not one single crash, hickup,
    else. Okaaay? Good performance too with 163.71; Vista 32-bit.
    -
    'Games for Windows', huh? Nah, I'm not switching yet.

    I've been able to run stranglehold with 163.71 and 163.75 drivers in XP both run perfectly I think why ppl have probs with games maybe its due to OC their systems

    Agreed. I did not try it with an lower O/C or nominal settings(XP), and it could
    be related...(every other game..a LOT..running perfectly)

    ...however;..how come I did not change hardware settings, but it ran without
    any issues overclocked on Vista? Shouldn't this have exhibited the same problems?
    Well, it's not the maximum O/C, this PC is capable of; I like stable
    operation, of course.

    Im just going by personal experience, when I push my system beyond what it can handle I experience probs in games now wheather they work in vista and not in XP i dont really know but theres alot of variables here..
