To no avail.. it still gives me the same problem, crashes at the loading screen and when it does go past the loading screen i can only play it for about 5 minutes then it crashes again..
Only solution I've found is to play the game in with origin in offline mode. -_-!
I have a decent PC well above the minimum spec of the Game.
Obviously I'd like to play it online..
And yes its a paid for original copy...
I don't know if this helps for you, but I had to run it in compatibility mode (dunno if XP or Vista sorry, already uninstalled), and I also had to physically disconnect my second monitor, because it crashed every time for me without these two steps.
Also: Intel burning test can show problems with your CPU overclock what Orthos or Prime would never catch, so perhaps you could give it a try.
