Untested. Very likely not as patches tend to make mods incompatible.

Turn the 'bump' (in the graphics settings) down to low. The majority of mini-dumps are caused by using 2GB of RAM (Sins is a 32 bit program) - and textures use a lot of RAM.

What's your PC specs ... CPU, RAM, Video, OS?

Did turning down the 'bump' help?

You haven't got a dedicated graphics card on your PC (laptop)?

Hi RC-9219,

A 'DirectX 9 3D Video Card' is the minimum spec for playing Sins. However some have run Sins with Integrated Graphics with mixed results. For example, one chap noticed that textures for Maelstrom were not displaying correctly until he bought a dedicated card. Other have noticed speed issues, or random crashes. Of course some are fine.

However, you said it 'takes longer to crash' by turning the effects down. My suggestion is you start with the default graphic setting of Sins (there is a reset button in the menu, just hit it). See how you go. If you still have problems just keep on reducing the effects.
