Game Crashing Repeatedly
Well the title pretty much sums it up but what is happening essentially is the game is doing what i call a mini crash or a "hiccup" because it will go from the game to white to the desktop then back to the game and resume playing. It does this about every 10 to 15 minutes maybe sooner actually and its very frustrating cause i have never had any problems with games that are alot harder on my system then this game is. I tried the DirectX 9 "fix" and that is when it actually stoped crashing outright and just did the hiccup that i described because before that in DX-11 it would crash completely closing the game and going to desktop. I love the game so far. I have only been able to get to Kingsmouth and do a few quests but so far it seems like a great game and i have been trying to find a good mmo for like ever and this one may be it but if i cant get this fixed i guess i will never know. I put in multiple help requests and sent them DXDIAG.EXE files and they keep tellin me its my p.c. is the issue but like i siad nothing else gives me a hard time. s So f anyone knows of a "true fix" that can help me i would be so thankful. Like i said its a great game i just wish i could play it =(

Are you sure your graphics card is updated to the latest drivers? It´s usually the cause for most of the instability.

just updated it today . it is an old nvidia 260 but i have 4g's of ram and a 2.8 quad proc. and i run stuff way more stressful on my pc then this game. that said i run in on the lowest possible setttings .

my comp has similar issues but more just jerky lag i cant seem to find a way to turn off particles i dont use. video's lag horribly or over lap and play 2 at a time. takes easily 45secs to load areas even after loading screen. specially with the newbie area being packed i end up standing still for long periods of time waiting for graphics and quests to appear. so far only complaint with the game is how awful the lag is even when i play all other games on high.

Are you running Windows 32-bit or 64-bit?

this game has to not be optimized completely or something. im no computer tech opr nothing but like road says other games dont put half the stress this game does and ther far more graphical and processor intensive. really sux to cus i really like the game and i wanna play it. for now im stuck with GW2 and Rift. OH BOY!!

Mine is doing this too! I tried every fix I could find. I was eventually told I'd need to buy a new graphics card. And that I should avoid Nvidia ones. It appears to be with how the game processes video. It's causing my card to work WAY harder than any other game.

Dont understand it.... got a gtx 260 , q6600, 4 gigs of ram, P5ke motherboard and W7 64 , all in latest drivers... and never had a crash!

Im a tech and this works perfect accept for a few bugs which will get sorted
trayjin Jan 5, 2013 @ 8:43pm 
well the game puts a serious load on my card wich causes the crash i believe but if thats the way the game is going to work on my machinery maybe they should bump up the minimum reqs for the game. and ther is a bug going around with the dx 11 and having to run it on dx 9 so i dont see that as running perfect. not trying to be nasty but dont downplay the issue by stating ther isnt one.

I had same issue for first 3 days in game, atleast 10 crashes to desktop. Someone posted in chatto disable Music ingame and no crash since then. Not sure it is related because I cannot prove it.

A bit of a late reply, but you might wanna try setting lighting to 0. I was having a dx11 ctd (a lot of times almost as soon as I started), but after doing this I had a 5 hour uninterupted play yesterday. Although it did crash on shutdown.

Cheers
