So, I have Plitch running - godmode and a few other items checked for easy play, at max difficulty.. but if a cutscene is playing where I have no interaction other than to "move to x" and another cutscene plays, the game crashes hard!
I mean, immediate BSOD (640 x 480 screen res) on-screen and reboots my computer.

System EventLog only shows:
The previous system shutdown at <time> on <date> was unexpected.

I'll retry the error, with the cheats I am using, and report here.
Any other report on similar issue?
Anyone?
Devs know about this?


I believe work-around is to disable the cheats prior to this section of the game.. but impossible to know I'm entering such a scene without having a crash occur first time round.

Are you playing via uplay or epic?
Does this also happens when not using the trainer? 🤔
Have you checked your gamefiles for errors?

Playing with Epic.
I believe if I don't run Plitch for these extended interactive cut-scenes, the game doesn't crash.
No, I have not checked my gamefiles for errors - the game runs fine every other time.
I shouldn't have to check my gamefiles for errors, there are no other erroneous errors being encountered.

It happened once before, so I didn't engage Plitch, and it worked fine.
This is just another scenario.. and I thought it prudent to make the devs of Plitch aware.

These are scenes where I watch 2 main characters talk about a Barbeque, I follow one, and boom, game crashes shortly after arriving at the cliff, and their brother is introduced.
(Trying to keep this spoiler free.)

I'll run this section without the cheats, and report back.. as like the previous time, it should work fine.

Aaaand.. turns out my error was based on 8 hours of playtime, solely using the following Plitch cheats, in singleplayer mode:
- No reload
- Unlimited Ammo
- No silencer overheat
- No weapon spread
- No recoil
- Godmode
- Unlimited stamina
- Unlimited Oxygen

Thing is, I have experienced this BSOD 2 or 3 times now.
Always, when there is an overly-long semi-interactive chat with an NPC..

In this case, it was the "Our Right to Party" mission, where you have to;
- Find the grill for the BBQ
- Get food for the BBQ

For anyone else experiencing this nasty 640x480 PC reboot issue, report how long you were playing, with cheats enabled, prior to the issue occuring.
I tried to re-create the issue, but failed.

Thanks

Also.. 

I had used the Stealth cheat a number of times, especially when everyone was shooting at me, and specifically for the Paulo mission, prior to this mission.

In the Paulo mission, I was unable to complete, as Paulo refused to acknowledge my presence, once I disabled the Stealth cheat.
I left him for dead, and went to this mission instead.. which resulted in the BSOD and an immediate reboot.

Did you activate the cheats AFTER loading into your savegame?

Yes.  
Does it make a difference when I run the cheats?
If there is a warning in Plitch, on how to implement the cheats, I follow all directions.
