Frostbite crashing

I dont know if anyone else have this problem but always when I try to play Frostbite my pvk crashes. Sometimes almost instantly and sometimes in 5 minutes. This issue came with 2.4 patch.

I have WinXP 32, Amd athlon +6000 x2, 2gb ram and ATI radeon HD 5770.

    I think map wasn't touched. All same.

    See if you crash on other maps and get MDMP.

    Of course it was touched! How else did it update to trinket wars! Don't be ludicrous.

    I dont think that it crash because shaders when other maps works whitout problem.

    Where I can find that MDMP?

    Steam\steamapps\xxx\pirates, vikings, and knights ii

    will have description as "Crash Dump File" and named something like this "hl2_4104_crash_2011_1_6T8_54_48C0"

    but again, I think there probably something with hardware or software. However I can't say much before CrackaPolly or Akz check it.

    Is there any specific areas that crash the game? The ice tunnels used to cause crashing when I first made them, but making them less detailed fixed that. Maybe there is still something fishy going on in them...

    I uploaded my MDMP here: http://www.paste.fi/file/12945767431898


    I think most of crashes happens near the ice tunnels but it crashes other places too.

    Hmm, could you try typing 'mat_specular 0' in the console and see if it still crashes. This disables reflections, which originally caused the crashing in the ice tunnels.

    For some reason it stopped crashing. I tested frostbite in my server and many small servers wich I found frostbite running. I cannot find any servers that have lot of players and frostbite running so I cannot test it properly.

    Maybe that MDMP would tell something.

    I have to bring this up again. Frostbite crashes every 5 minutes and now cathedral and desertruin started to crash too. I have different graphic card and prosessor than last time I had this problem so I don't believe that problem is graphical error or something.

    If someone could take a look these last two crash reports and tell me what is going on I would be very grateful. I don't know how to open and read them.

    Akz is going to take a look at the dump files, but for now try disabling the "Advanced Player Shaders" under the advanced multiplayer options menu.

    Have you tried -dxlevel 80 or -dxlevel 81 at the launch options of the game?

    Have you tried the basic stuff?
    - Verify Steam cache
    - Delete and reinstall pvk
    - Update video drivers
