    Can you be a bit more descriptive about whats happening?

    Do you get any error messages?

    What are you trying to do when the game crashes?

    Is it happening at the same point every time?

    Do you do a rolling save?

    Is that the exact target that you have? Also, are you using a PC or a Mac & did you activate with Steam or UniLoc?

    When in windowed, do not remove FM from your screen when saving.

    Failing that, get on the phone to Customer Services to get a run through of your computer spec.

    This is probably no help but I had this problem on 08. If you click ok the game should minimize, click the icon at the bottom of your screen and hopefully it will continue.

    Like I say it was 08 but I definitely had the out of bounds box pop up numeroes times.
