Posted:always perform a google search on the exact wording of the errors.
like with chicken jokes, the chances are, someone else has heard it before and posted the answer on the net.

good luck and if pain persists, please contact your HoP hax0rs.

Posted:And, as FRD mentioned, always post the exact text of any errors you are seeing when asking for help.

Also, just as a general go-round, uninstall all programs that you do not need and run an anti-virus with latest virus definitions and an anti-spy/anti-adware with latest defs. Also, update your drivers (video/sound) and check the game's site for an update to the game itself. And, to emphasize Bender's post, Google is your friend.

Posted:ditto

we need the game(s) you're trying to play, cfx card, cup, ram, os, etc etc etc.

Google it first and check the game websites for patches though.

Good luck

Posted:thanks people grouphug

i googled it and i found out that the save game files get somehow overloaded when you save it near something that is constantly happening, such as traps frown

evil game designers...
