So far Blur worked fine for me under Windows XP (SP3 32-bit), I managed to beat first boss and start chapter 2. However, just after trying to race on one of the Tokyo Shutoko tracks (presumably Wangan-sen), the game crashes to desktop just after few seconds of loading screen.
I applied some automatic online patches to bring it up to date, tried several different vehicles and various GFX options details, to no avail. I have Core2Duo, GTS 450 and 2 GB of RAM.
Just note it is a non-Steam version of the game (retail).
Is there any known issue with Tokyo tracks in Blur? Is there any possible fixes to such problems?
