Crashes when trying to get into the lab

Posts: 6

After this recent patch, I have been experiencing some problems when playing the campaign mode.

The situation at hand is:

I am replaying everything on normal difficulty and I just finished the "Great Train Robery" mission. When I get back onto the Hyperion, every time I try to go into the laboratory, the second I get in, the system freezes and crashes and the only thing I could do at that point is manually turn off the mac.

Here is what I have in regards to system specs:

Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier: MacBookPro7,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 3 MB
Memory: 4 GB
Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce 320M

Any ideas whats going on?

Thanks in advance.

I have the same issue, my game crashes randomly in Hyperion and I need to force reboot. it's also happen in multiplayer too. I feel it's the graphics card overheating. I'm really unsure tho. I think we have same specs: I play on MacBook pro 13".

Same as CapnPatty over here; random crashes on the lab. Sometimes when trying to select an available research, others when trying exit the lab screen.
