Just thought Id start a thread cos well I can't play the fookin game! First of all I had the preinstall issue on steam. Got home at 6 tonight and yay it was finally playable. Did free practises and qualy then tried to do a race. Car goes to pull out of the garage and.... Black screen with frozen loading symbol in the corner. Used task manager to close, rebooted and tried a few times and every time I go to start a race the same thing happens. I turn to google where I discover that the race won't play on a 3 or 6 core machine. It's coded to run on 2, 4 or 8 cores but not on 3 or 6, WTF!!! There are work arounds popping up on the net where you have to practically rewrite some code to get it working, like this http://duk3r.posterous.com/f1-2010-pc-6core-cpus-and-game-crashes I'm ready to implode!
