  • Cities in Motion
Hi, I recently purchased Cities in Motion off of steam and seem to have encountered a rather annoying problem.

I start playing and so far both in the Tutorial and in Sandbox mode the game will play for several minutes and simply freeze. Completely and utterly freeze. My mouse stops registering on screen, all video stops playing, only the music continues. I can ctrl+alt+delete out and close the program with my Task Manager where it reads the game is "Not responding".

I meet or exceed all hardware requirements, and my graphics card is updated regularly [via ati's catalyst control centre], and to be certain I confirmed I was indeed up-to-date.

So, as per the information requested:
When playing the game [approximately 3-4 minutes of play time] the game will simply stop responding. Music will continue to play, but otherwise nothing else will work. I cannot Alt+Tab to a new window, nor Windows+D to force minimize my screen. The mouse appears to stop moving though when I ctrl+alt+del to my task manager everything appears to be working just fine save for Cities in Motion itself. This has happened every time I have played the game [approximately 5-6 attempts so far].

CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K @ 3.20GHz
RAM: 16 GB
Graphics card: Two AMD Radeon HD 6900 series
Video memory: 4 GB
OS: Windows 7 64-bit

That's it.

The game looks like it's a lot of fun, I hope I can get this resolved.
