Bioshock 2 Remastered has quite a few things going for it, constant crashes being one of them. The game is, no matter how you put it, quite unstable.
Workaround-fix for frequent crashes and freezes.
Finally, a fix…
But now we, Steam community, have finally found a workaround-fix (hopefully) to let you play without crashes and unexpected interruptions anymore!
How does it work?
Simple: it’s just a script (converted to EXE) to launch the game with CPU affinity limited to the first 2 cores (+ 2 respective logic units). This alone seems to fix game instability once and for all!
To be honest hw requirements on Steam shop page did already suggest CPU: 2-4 cores only…
Simple installing instruction included in the package.
You can download it from:
Please, test it and report if it’s working fine or you still encounter crashes after installation.
Stupid antivirus online & false positives…
VirusTotal online results:
Not bad, since the major AVs did correctly detect it as safe (Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, Avira, BitDefender, NOD32, F-Secure, AVAST…). Ignore the other few false positives by some mediocre AVs.
