I am very desperate. I searched on all the internet for a solution for my problem, but nothing worked.
When I try to launch the game, everything is fine. Until I get to the character selection screen. Sometimes I get to choose a server for online multiplayer, sometimes it freezes/crashes right at the screen in the beginning.
All my pc specs are ENOUGH to play Brink on a high quality: I already played the game 6 hours where it did NOT crash all the time. But it seems that my graphics card is the only problem, or should I rather say the game has a problem with the card?
I have a ATI Radeon HD 4890 installed in my system and got the latest driver (13.4 Beta).
I tried the following (I might have forgotten something to list):
-verify game cache via steam (It says EVERYTIME I do that that 1 file is missing which will be reaquired, like 10 times in a row if I verify the game cache 10 times in a row)
-I searched like hell for the bloody 11.5a hotfix on the internet, but didn’t find anything
-I enabled ingame console and used the command “r_shadows 0” without the quotes which didn’t help
-I reinstalled the game like 20 times
-I put all the settings on the lowest possible
Furthermore, I saw that you recommend the driver 11.10 (released October 2011). But Brink is not the only game I play. I refuse to install OLD drivers to play ONE game when the other games I play require the LATEST drivers.
Also, I found this link for the 11.5a HOTFIX of AMD:
which refers me automatically refers me to this page:
I need the help urgently cause I know how awesome this game is. There MUST be a way playing the game with LATEST drivers.
