Ok whoever is considering helping me THNX SOOOO MUCH, this problem has been pissing me off 4 like a few weeks now. When i play Black and White I'm playing happily and then suddenly the game starts to lag when im on the 3rd world!!! So i'm like it'll pass and i keep playing. One day when im playing the screen starts flashing sort of cracks/splashes of inverted/out of place color (especially when the conciences are on screen) and then freezes, I cant minimize, bring task manager up, NOTHING! so i reboot my comp. But it does that every time! PLZ HELP!!! Iv tried updating my firmware on video cards and CD ROM and turning my sound accelaration down (that makes it crash faster) and i read like every peice of FAQ on B&W2...PLZ HELP ME!!!
