I've recently got into Mass Effect again, plugging away on the PC. Previously I had played it on the Xbox and through less than legal means on my old PC. I never had an issue with it.
But now on my new PC, if I select a dialog option before the conversation is complete the game has a pretty high chance of crashing. If I wait until the game cuts back to my character and waits for me, it never crashes. Seems a pretty common occurrence, judging from the google searches. But so far the only solution I can find is "wait". Which is ok... until I get into the game, and make a quick selection during a random unimportant NPC discussion without thinking, game crashes instantly, and I lose 30-50 minutes of playtime.
Just curious if any of you guys here have had the issue in the past, and a solution?
My previous play was on this same PC, but before the upgrades. I had Windows XP, 3GB of ram, and a Geforce 9800. Now I have Windows 7 64bit, 8GB of ram, and a Geforce 580.
