I've just started playing the windows port of this game, which is good fun, overall. However, it is notorious for constant, random crashes every 10-15 minutes, which combined with the fact it uses a console save point system, with saves a good 20 minutes apart or more, can leave you seeing red. (speaking from experience.) Try the following:
-go to Start Menu\Eidos\Snowblind\setup, and disable full-screen effects. Although this has helped some people, it didn't stop my crashes. It did, however, stop the game from being unplayably jerky, and it may help you.
-If you have a dual-core or HT system: After you start the game, hit ctr-alt-del, go to processes, and look for 'snowblind.exe'. Right-click on it, select 'processor affinity', and uncheck cpu1. This has solved my crashes, although you have to do it each time you run the game. There are some free-ware apps (such as Prioaff ) which will modify your Snowblind shortcut to do the same thing.
