having turned everything off visually I still crashed. After turning the visuals back on and turning off the sound it worked. I have a new laptop 2009, so i struggle to believe it's at issue. I'll maybe look into getting more ram. I bought this game so I wouldn't have to play on the windows side... quite disappointed at the crashing. But if it's fixed in the next patch, I guess mistakes happen.
I'm the same, though I've not disabled sound, though I had turned of all other settings, I will do now. Though it always when a long pass goes 1vs1 with the keeper. It's so annoying, I'm playing against a better team, and I'm winning by punting balls and sending youngsters after, hence why i have tried 4 times to complete this game, and it's crashed out every time. It's painful.
