    Cheers Altay_H. I will try that. BTW this is [image attached] the driver that I use as it was marked recommended. Which of the other 2 would be better?

    Try them both and see if either of them prevents the crash from occurring. It's likely that it will occur on all three versions, but it's worth giving each a try anyway.

    Thank you Altay_H. I will first try metacity and then perhaps the 2 other video drivers.

    I tried metacity and I was logged out on my 3rd game. If I run the game in a window either via Wine config or via 'Volvo The Game' Config.exe I get no auto log outs. Would hz or vsync have anything to do with this? I am reluctant to change my video driver as I know of no other problem with any game and changing the video driver may bring new problems.
