Hey folks,

I used to play FOT on GSA religiously and recently I've been struck by a bit of nostalgia. (I personally blame ByranB's ressurection of FOT.) But unfortunately, I can't play for longer than five-ten minutes before I experience a problem. At first, the screen will become garbled and glitched. (Similar to this screenshot below.)

From here, there are two pathways;

If I continue to play the game, my system will freeze after three-five minutes and requires a hard shutdown.

If I quit the game before it freezes, my entire system will remain garbled. There is nothing quite like going to desktop and seeing it displaced all over. (Its actually even worse than the glitchiness that happens to FOT.) This requires a hard shutdown to fix.

System specs;
Vista 64 bit.
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q9450 @ 2.66 CPUs (4 CPUs), ~2.7 GHz.
2x NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX.
4 gb Reaper RAM.

Everything is overclocked and no other game has any issues, even games from the same year.


Thanks,
- Grey.

Sounds like a video card issue.
