    Im having the same problem with Frontlines game. Im getting a microsoft
    message saying:

    Frontlines Game has stopped working

    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will
    close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

    Specs on my system are, vista ultimate 64bit,
    intel duo core 2.66GHz, Radeon X800 XT Platinum, 4 gigs ram, onboard
    intel high definition audio. I already downloaded and installed the
    v1.0.1 patch, and the vista hot fix patch. It will load up the fronlines
    logo, then it looks like its gonna go into the game, then that message
    listed above pops up.

    very frustrating....any help?

    Hey Scotty,

    frontlines properties, doesnt have one. Cant figure out how to run the
    game as admin. Game still doesnt work, im still getting that message
    that the game has stopped working.

    Are you running Vista or XP?

    You have to browse to the game directory, usually in c:\program files\company name\frontlines or something like that. Once in there look for the frontlines.exe file, right click, choose properties, if there's no compatibility tab there, then you aren't running Windows 2K/XP/Vista

    i just found out that frontlines game is incompatible with Radeon X80
    and X850 video cards. THQ support says that it should have a fix for i
    in 2 weeks or so...

    hope it works..

    latest Ageia Physx drivers and the game now plays perfectly.

    I have worked for several months (on and off) to try to get Frontlines
    Fuel of War working on my beefy system running Vista Ultimate 64bit. I
    have gone from THQ (worthless) who blamed it on my video card (ATI
    4870). I even did the download version in addition to the DVD version
    I'd previously purchased w/o help. I installed all the patches
    (including the 1.3 today) all w/o change. Today I FINALLY found out it
    will run if I turn off the process "AudioSrv." The bad thing is that my
    sound card (Creative PCI Express X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion Series)
    will not work when the Windows AudioSrv service is not running. From
    here perhaps I can now stuff this back to THQ (Creative was less help
    than Activision - didn't even respond to my request) and see what gives.
    I'll post a reply / word if/when I get a positive reply.
    Regards,
    Mark

    Have you made sure your components are working correctly with MemTest86+ and
    Prime95?

  16. Of all the games to be installing why Frontlines? Lol. But on a seriou
    note, update your video drivers and check your sound. Just to be on th
    safe side set your sound to 24-bit 44100hz (Studio Quality) or 16-Bi
    44100hz (CD Quality)

  18. Hope this might help some of you, its odd to have to do this
    but.............

    First off, and this sounds odd but works!!! go to the executable of the
    game and rename it Bioshock, then create a shortcut of your renamed
    executable and put it on your desktop

    Put the games disk in, must be disk 2 and then double click your
    renamed Bioshock shortcut and hey presto the game will now start.
