Hello, I recently purchased this game for Steam, and after some time playing, the game will inevitably crash with the above error. Sometimes it will happen within mere minutes, other times maybe within an hour or so. It's getting quite frustrating, especially as I'm currently trying to tackle the Vigilante missions, but I keep getting that error.
The game is installed as is, no cheats, mods, etc. I saw it was suggested elsewhere to delete the gta_vc.set file and reboot / re-install the game. No luck. Something about disabling Data Execution Prevention for the game. Again, same result.
System specs are:
Windows XP SP3
2.93 GHz, 3.50 GB of RAM
Graphics card - NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX / 9800 GTX+
Any help would be appreciated.
