    I got a new computer with a trackpad. At first I got issues with even just the video, then I changed the graphics card setting on anti-aliasing, and got into the game. But once I try to use my trackpad, it crashed. So I plugged in a mouse, and started playing. But after accidentally pressing the scroll button, it crashed again… Is there any fix for this??
