I could begin BOD just fine with ropengl but when I begin to play the game, after several minutes in, and I go to the options menu in an attempt to save the or adjust my control config, the game crashes.

I can still hear the music in the background though.
Just me then?

My specs:

Win 7 64 bit
i-7 3770k
8gb 2100 mhz memory
2 X radeon 7870
Stock catalyst, latest drivers.

I tried the game is xfire mode and non xfire mode, it doesn't seem to prevent the problem from happening.
