Well has anyone run into a game crashing when trying to do the keep New Vegas Independent? Have done both NCR and Legion without crashing and yet game keeps crashing at Hoover Dam during keep New Vegas Independent. Oh have graphics turned from low to high (which I normally run it at).

I've crashed sometimes, though I think it has nothing to do with keeping it independent.

Sometimes is was from a bug with the Euclid's C-Finder.

havent made it that far into the game yet but fallout 3 wasnt very stable at times either and as to be expected fallout new vegas isn't totally stable which is something that if you have played alot of games from this company you have come to learn over time and to live with and work around. Still good games just sometimes you have to wait a bit before you can play it that way or try changing your settings and save alot is all i can say for how to get around the crashing at any point in the game.

Crashes cant be helped, they've pained oblivion too, and this game uses the same engine (as if you can't tell...)

Its just the way it was made. Also, that engine is getting old.

lol an old engine, imagine that

i had to work with the main settings a lot with fallout 3 to get it to be "more" stable, prob the same trick here. Esp if you add in mods that effect a lot of things (spawns, items, shaders etc)

ya just expect it..and understand its going to crash so make manual saves. no game is 100% crash free though. just saying.

It is indeed still plagued with bugs. There were still issues with Fallout 3 and Oblivion despite the large number of patches. I always tended to get the odd crash randomly during running around, or just after clicking to exit the game. So, with a game based on the same GameBryo engine, these problems are to be expected. Just save often to save frustration, and live with it. Hopefully, patches are on the way to aid this somewhat.

People can take some general steps though to try and minimise problems on their systems. Making sure all your drivers are up-to-date on your system, such as sound, chipset and (particularly) graphics. ATI and nVidia for example are always making improvements and fixes particularly to target crash/freeze issues and cure performance problems in the latest games. Usual PC maintenance on top of this, including things like disk cleanups, defragging, malware scanning and disabling unneeded/unwanted background tasks, can help greatly too.
