If a game gives you the blue screen of death, your PC is probably too weak to handle it.

what are you playing on? specs please. when you get the blue screen, i guess you have to bring up the task manager to get out of it, right? what's it say? RO2 has stopped responding?

my pc should be able to handle RO2, indeed if I play rounds with short length like SD or short Territory theres never the problem. or at least not up until now. (specs later).

its actually giving me the blue screen of total death (hard rebooting only option, screen just stops and sometimes short sounds) in long maps after i played ONE long map through.

i found other comments with exactly the same problem but all their solutions didnt work for me.
(like turning of GEPA or hardware acc physics)

i can play arma3 on high settings for hours it never crashes.

blue screen errors are for sure found in what's called Event Viewer, everyone should know how to use this, search for it on your PC using the left most bottom "thingie" search for event viewer and when you have found it go hit applications in the program and see if you can find the RO related error.

Note: Only do this after replicating your issue so the error will be the most top one.

As long as everyone isnt getting it i'm pretty sure the dev's can say its not their fault, and when i had BS's i wasnt the one to say it was, luckily my BS problem just vanished

Specs aside BSOD's are often caused by one of 4 things. Even though RO2 is a relatively old game it can still demand a lot of resources from a PC. The following are things that every gamer should be aware of when trying to deal with a BSOD.

1. Heat. Perhaps your gfx card or cpu are getting too hot when playing the game. Make sure that you check your PC regularly for dust build up (at least once a month). The best way to do this is to open you PC case and use a paintbrush or a vacuum cleaner to clean around the fans and heatsinks on your gpu and cpu (watch the wires if you are using a vacuum). Also make sure that any vents on your case are kept clean of dust. you can use this program to monitor the heat on your rig.

2. Overclocking. If you do overclock then make sure you are acutely aware of point 1, also personal experience has taught me that just because game a, b, and c still run fine whilst overclocked, game d might not like it at all for a plethora of reasons.

3. Power. As with overclocking, some games will draw more power resources from your system than others. Although rarer, certain games can highlight that your PSU might just not be up to the job or is getting a little bit flaky with power outputs.

4. Drivers. It is recommended that you try to keep all of your PC drivers up to date, however when trying to diagnose a problem then it is sometimes a good idea to use a slightly older driver for you gfx card if you are using the latest already. Also from personal experience I have found that soundcard drivers can be the culprit in causing BSOD's in the past, more so realtek drivers than any others.

Just a few general points in dealing with BSOD, hope this helps.

nice post. especially the "clean it" part. if his computer looked good enough to run the game, the next question was, when did you clean it last. ro2 heats up my computer more than anything i've ever played. it "tells" me when i forget to clean it, by doing all kinds of wierd grapic stuff in the game. once a month mine goes downstairs for a thorough cleaning. i like compressed air. but ya gotta be careful with it.

i think right now its a problem with the external usb audio alesis 2 soundcard. i cleaned my computer not long ago, i checked every log, everything much more demanding runs fine.

its not the soundcard. i could play a couple of days without problems, now it starts again. no dump and no sign in the log files of RO2 im going insaaaane :)
