Does anyone else have the problem, of RailWorks freezing after sometime driving?

I drove a train just for fun in a free roam game, was driving for a while and the game froze, and so did Windows. I thought ok I just went past a point of no return. dry.gif

So I played one of the missions, and again it froze, but this time Alt +Ctrl with Delete showed me Windows Task Manager, where it said the game is not responding.

If this is something regular, then this game needs a patch. If it freezes, because you didn't complete the task properly, that means it needs a message to come up stating that, and then end the game. Not to freeze, and be lost in what to do. sad.gif

I've never experienced this. What are your systems specs (OS, video card, etc.), and do you do regular PC maintenance?

Cheers!

You should do a Google search on that motherboard. It doesn't get the greatest reviews.
If that processor needs more than 80 watts, you could have problems with it.

The last MSI motherboard I had I eventually had to replace with a Gigabyte board. The MSI didn't go bad or anything but I kept having similar problems to what you described.

you could use more ram, I do not know the size of you psu but for your gpu it should be at least 400w true rms.
