SAME HERE! did a weird thing lol now I can play 20min without crash!

Just switch to win classic theme and go to advance settings in control panel and use performance mode!

I crash after 20min with DirectX error or NVIDIA deriver not responding!

After a few hours or minutes the screen crash/ freeze with all this little green things looks like doller sign`s accros the screen.
