Error: PhysX3_x86.dll Game locks up and cannot minimize FORCED HARD SHUT DOWN
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Game takes over operating system environment, can move mouse, sound still plays, but game is locked. Windows logo key + 'L' does not do anyting, ctrl + alt + delete does not do anything, ctrl + shift + escape does not do anything. Putting the computer to sleep and waking it up results in blank black screen with audio playing again, assuming I am at the user login screen, pressing enter to log in does not do anything. After this crash the windows environment has been taken over and I am forced to perform a hard shut down on the system. Ouch, all my changed settings! {F23871}

the latest crash, according to your crashlog, is from 26/04/2014. Can you please verify the crashes on version 1.18?

If yes, would it be possible to upload crashdumps? It helps us a lot.

Thank you very much.
