Has anyone had any trouble with this? I'm playing painkiller via boot camp and for the first day or two it was choppy but worked - now the game crashes every time I try to play. I've read it could be related to the 2 cores - I've tried disabling one core but then it plays in slow motion. I've tried updated drivers, game patches, uninstalling and reinstalling the game, clean boot processes, etc. I'm stuck.

Anyone else have problems? I really do think it's the processor and not the graphics card, just because of the behavior.

Or maybe it's just because it's WINDOWS... ;)

Are you using the latest version of Bootcamp? A new version was just released a few days ago. The Apple drivers are still under development, so this isn't totally unexpected. If not, make sure you download the latest Bootcamp, create a drivers CD and update them on your Windows installation.

I'm using v. 1.2. Thanks for the idea, though. :)
