Same here using GTX 580, crashes everytime at as soon has rocket hits the helicopter, gotta love buying a new game and first mission in game crashes and you cant get passed it, starting to wonder why I wasted my money, especially with no ability to control my own clan server....
I have a fix for you all
Download a program called MSI Afterburner, or some other program that can tweak the voltage of your card. Increase the voltage in increments until you do not crash anymore. Had the same problem with BF3. I have mine at 1050, but mine is overclocked so you might not have to increase it that much. I think standard is 1013. If you have any issuses, please google how to tweak the voltage
I have the Zotac GTX 580 AMP edition if anyone is interested.
Did you tweak with the video configurations? I also managed to get past that "crash point" when I turned all video options down, as suggested in this thread. Sadly the game froze up right at the ending scene of the second mission, which meant I had to replay the whole mission. Ever since I haven't been able to get past that point again, no matter how much I changed the video settings.
Short version: This crash seems to be random as hell. Would be nice to get some feedback from some devs though...
I didn't do anything.. well that's not true. I went to da gym and when I came home I just tried again and it just worked !! No tweak or msi or anything. and in 1920x1080 and highest graphic options!! me happy hehe.
Maybe it's because I have restartet steam and some update maybe fixed it IDK. Hope it works for all of ya'll to! GG
