Ditto. All save-games from Level 2 won't load, but Lev 1 ones do. Bummer!

I think I have worked out the problem but not how to fix it yet. I went to Event viewer under administrative tool (in control panel) each time I had the crash and under application logs I found Creative labs SC at the exact moment of the crash (date and time). Even though I have uninstalled every single bit of creative software on my PC it seems that Creative Alchemy is still running somehow. I cannot see it in add/remove programs or program files. Looks like I will have to do a manual cleanout of the registry unless I can find a program that will uninstall it. Anyway thats whats causing the problem it seems. If you guys have a look at task manager, see if you can see alchemy cleanup after the crash.

Alchemy only adds dsound.dll and dsound.ini to the root directory. If they aren't there it is not the problem. You would've had to open Alchemy and add Painkiller to the list. It won't add it without your permission.

It seems that was not the problem, The Creative Alchemy crash happened before I started PK, so there is something else causing the crash but nothing is showing in Event viewer. Just cannot play this game, does anyone have an answer?
