So I've decided to try out the Mortal Online free trial.
I downloaded the installer and started it up to start patching. I figured it'd take a few hours, so I decided to play Dungeons and Dragons Online whilst I was waiting.
I started it up and after walking around for a bit in town, my entire system freezes. First time I've experienced this problem. Alt-Tab, Alt-Ctrl-Delete, Alt-Enter, nothing works. Its a total system freeze. Figured it odd but hey these things happen.
Restarted the computer, started up the MO patcher again, then started D&D. Whilst on the loading screen after character selection, it freezes up again.
Restart, MO patcher, D&D, and it freezes after about 3 minutes.
Think my video card drivers might be the issue so I check nVidia's website, find an update and install them.
Start up D&D just by itself. Walk around for about 20 minutes with no issue. Figure my old driver must've been corrupted somehow, and installing a new one must've fixed the problem.
Alt tab out of D&D, restart the MO patcher, and continue playing D&D. About 2 minutes after restarting the MO patcher, D&D freezes up again.
Coincidence or causal link?
It doesn't make much sense that the patcher for MO would cause D&D to freeze up, but in 20 years of using computers, I have seen stranger things.
Anyone out there got D&D and MO installed who can test it to see if it occurs at their end too? I'd really like to be able to rule out hardware faults as the warranty on a bunch of parts in my PC runs out quite soon.

Try patching it without keeping it in the background of a taxing program like D&D...
If it freezes without help, it's MO's patcher, if it doesn't, it's because you keep trying to play D&D...
