    I bought Cities Skyline in the steam sale, but my PC keeps crashing when I play it. I can play no more then 5 minutes before it completely freezes.

    My computer surpasses the recommended requirements listed.

    Any ideas?

    This has stopped the game crashing and now it just closes and says the programme has stopped working.

    I would just uninstall the game and maybe try again? If not, then I'd give it up as a bad job. I signed up to the latest version of Photoshop a few weeks ago and it is incredibly slow. The other previous versions were excellent for speed but this one (CC 2019) is so slow. I just live with it now.

    The standard advice is to update the graphics card drivers. (Doesn't always work though).

    Houchens head: I'll try uninstalling it and starting again, probably best

    I've tried that Dutchman, but still no good, so i'll uninstall it,

    I've tried it now with all the settings turned really low, strangely it seems to be knocking my wifi connection off as well now, maybe they're linked issues?

    Still crashing even with the re install. Is this going to be a game I'm destined to never play properly?
