Well, as many people know, Bioshock is a game that crashes quite often for some. So I've made a short fix list to stop it crashing. 1. Go to the Windows Control Panel, and select Add or Remove Programs. Now scroll down and find "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable". Uninstall this and the game will not crash at some points it used to. 2. Disable high detail shaders in the graphics menu. This fixed most of my crashes. If you cant stand playing without this (Which I doubt), you can re-enable it while you are playing, and it shouldn't crash. 3. Some people experience crashing at load screens. As soon as the load screen has appeared, hit Alt + Tab and minimize to the desktop. When you hear the sounds of the loading screen getting into the game, open Bioshock from the taskbar. This gets past those crashes. This is by no means a permanent fix, I'm sure whatever update comes will fix it.

    Ever heard of the 1.1 patch?


    Excuse me sir, but you are a complete fuckhead.

    This was written 2 years ago at the very release of Bioshock, so I think you should learn to read, learn to use this site, then get the fuck out.

    Pros: Good tutorial, useful if you have Bioshock, or are looking into buying it.
    Improvements: You should implement more HTML into your work, for reasons...
    • It looks nice.
    • It's easier to read.

    Also I would look into more things you can do to prevent crashes.

    8/10
