Hi guys, sorry for my english, there may be mistakes in my post.

 

I have been playing DS3 about a year now, and I started to getting "Dead Space has stopped working" always after 10-15 minutes of playing. I happened after i played once with gamepad, but i am not sure if it was coincidence or not. 

This what I did:

  • installed newest drivers for my grapfic card
  • unplugged my gamepad and uninstalled all gamepad drivers
  • deleted joypad_example.txt in game directory

I guess deleting gamepad drivers helped, but I am not sure. But I since then I played without problems, so I hope some of these things may help you too.

So what you're telling me is this: to play Dead Space 3, I have to disable my Goddamn keyboard? Are you for real?

Not sure if this helps anyone but, I was using a Bluetooth speaker & had to shut it off due to the game freezing as soon as I hit continue saved game. I used the TV speakers & the game works now. Windows 10.

@BUKUCUCKOO, I have been googling this * for an hour, and I finally stumbled on your post. That was exactly what the problem was for me as well, the moment I turn off my bluetooth headphones, everything is right as rain. Except for the fact that I wan't to play with my damn headphones. Thanks, though, man.

Didn't see this post until starting my own reply. Would have saved me a day of troubleshooting this issue.

Anyway, I followed all the advice in this as well as other here just like it. For me it ended up having to...

 

1. uninstall all HID devices from Device Manager

2. unplug all HID devices &

3. the real kick in the head, turn off my SRS-X33 Sony Bluetooth Speaker.

 

The speaker had to be uninstalled from Device Manager AND turned off/not connected via Bluetooth. Wow.

Somebody really dropped the ball in the programing arena here. I had zero trouble with Dead Space 1 & 2. I'm shocked that EA didn't hit the developers with "You better fix this now!". Because from what I'm seeing on the net, a very large part of the gaming community that (tried to) play this game had this issue. Your getting a bad reputation EA. And a bad rep looses customers you normally would have acquired (read $$$), and could eventually put you out of business. This kind of thing speaks loader than words about how unimportant quality is to your bottom line.
