Bioshock.exe has stopped working. Full version, not the demo
Has anyone found a solution to this problem? It occurs when loading the game, every time. I haven't been able to get into the game at all.
I have the full retail version, not the demo.
Relevant system specs:
AMD Opteron 170 @ 2.95ghz
ATI X1950 XTX x2 in crossfire
2gb corsair xps memory
Enermax liberty 620w psu
Acer 22" wide screen @ 1680x1050
Hmmm yes I did try those, thanks for the excellent advice though.
Oh, why don't you use yours?
Check the firewall maybe. I got stuck at a little Bioshock logo. I fiddled with my firewall permissions and it started up.
The demo works for me but not the full Steam version. I can't even get to the Bioshock bar. My system exceeds the minimum specs. The demo works well but I can't get to first base with the full Steam version. Looking forward to comments...
Ok thanks, I don't think that is the problem though because it says there is an error then it closes back to windows.
I also forgot to add that I am using Vista.
Changing the firewall allowed the game to go further to displaying the little BioShock bar, but then I encounter the same stopped problem.
I tried that but it didn't get me any farther
I had a similar problem. As put by another poster, try adding -dx9 to the end of the target in the shortcut properties. Right after the quotes. I couldn't get past the black screen until I did this. One of the drawbacks is that you can't turn on the DirectX 10 water features. Hope this at least gets you playing...

XFX GeForce 8600GTS
try August DirectX release and (for me) 163.44 Nvidia drivers
