when i first bought homeworld 2, i played it quite steadily, it worked perfectly...then i got the patch and it still ran nice and smooth...i quit for a month or so and ive recently tried to play it again, and as soon as i try to join a server or host it will crash the computer, there have been no significant hardware changes during this period
