Summary: game crashes to desktop mid-mission
Description: crash caused by killing somebody. it can sometimes be instant and can take up to 10 seconds afterwards to crash.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do kill
2. wait 1-10 seconds
How many times have you recreated this bug: as many times as my client has been closed in the past few weeks, as it's 95% of the time been from crashes. killing somebody is what is causing it, but it doesn't happen every time, maybe 1/15 times. i don't have the time to constantly restart the game to test this and get an actual figure.
Results: crash to desktop, error report pop up with the "general protection fault" bollocks.
Expected Results: kill somebody and still be able to play??
this has been happening ever since the 25/01 patch, i'm fairly certain. running the game in compatibility mode set to windows7 or 8 works as a work-around for some people, but there are severe performance issues when doing so.
EDIT: turns out it does occur in fight club. sick.
EDIT 2: I've edited the post with corrections from other peoples' experiences and my own.
