Rating: The issue is client sided.
Issue: InGame crashes in several Situations
Reason: Computers needs their setup to run proper. Shadow of Fear is using upgraded DX9 settings, 3D sound, highly detailed Textures and several upgrades to the Freelancer engine itself. If you use an older version of Shadow of Fear you may run in trouble when older files will not be replaced when installing.
We can only please you, not to use other installation methods than the ones we are providing.
On modern Operating Systems you need to allow Administrator privileges to every file which is installing something over others. Because of this: allow the usage.
Other Issues are coming from old sound- and grafic drivers or an outdated DirectX Installation first place. Please refer to your grafic and sound vendors manual to download and install the newest possible grafics and sound drivers. For DirectX Issues refer to the appropriated post on this portal (under support).
The Method to install Shadow of Fear is specified on the portals Main Menu under Installation. Please do not use other ways. We made much efforts to have the Installation procedure as easy as possible for you.
Solution: Please use proper Installations
