  UT3 crashing - PC lockup - freezing - (amdk8)

Hi everyone,

I'll thought i'll add some info on people that have had UT3 crashing, during installation, during game. This applies to the demo and the released game.

If you have an AMD cpu, UT3 will install the (Windows driver package amdk8) into Windows. After rebooting your pc, I found that it would crash all the time, within Windows and within UT3.

Simply uninstall the (Windows driver package amdk8) from the control panel, and reboot your PC. UT3 would still be able to run, and will be much more stable without it. :)

Tested this on my and my friends PC, both AMD PCs would crash, unistalling the (Windows driver package amdk8) fixed both PCs. :)

AMD 64 3400
1.5gb ram
500gb hd
500w psu
mx518 mouse / razer diamondback
