From Hero to Zero - Crash after Crash

I really like this game but the constant crashes makes it unplayable. No need to mention updating graphics card drivers, done that got the t-shirt. Time for a new game.

What system do you play on?
Steam? Did you try the current Beta version if works better?

What is your hardware setup?

My friend has the same problem, he plays on steam. The crash patch made it worse. I hope they give out another hotfix soon.
