I'm loving Bioshock, i've just finished Olympus Heights - the game's working great no glitches or crashes or anything.

So i'm just leaving Olympus Heights heading through the door to Apollo Square, get the loading screen and about 2 seconds later the game just freezes.

Considering how many people have spammed the 2KGames forums complaining about crashing i'm hoping for a more direct result...

Could anyone lend me a bioshock save either inside Apollo Square or on the level directly after? That way i'll be able to finish the game etc and at least i'll be happy :p

Unfortunatley I can't upload mine as it is 11.9MB in size even after compression.
The max zip file size is 1.9mb here.

EAX gives Bioshock choppy frames on my system.

WTF?
Recipent's email address optional?
Then why would you upload there for?

I realize this is an ancient thread, but I found it looking for a fix myself, and saw no solution provided anywhere.

I transferred my save files to my husband's computer to try it out on another box. I had no reason to think it would work as our computers are both dual core PCs with Windows 7, but I was able to get to Apollo Square on his PC, save, and continue the game to completion on my own computer after transferring the save back.
