Hi ive been binging and googling for 3 months on and off in my free time and i havent found a patch or fix for this issue yet but i sure hope to for im also having the same exact issue... happens after the game loads into the second level, after that it pretty much does it on everything, menu screen, loading screen, ingame. tried many re-installs, video card drivers versions even old ones. did a complete reformat thinking my machine just needed it since its running the game that bad but still no change. im posting in this thread to hopefully lure others with the same problem in hope to find something to help. ty.
