OP  5/31/12 4:45:38 PM#1

I do not understand before the last patch it was fine but now it freezes and I have to forcibly shut my computer down each time.

 

I have a Nvdia 480 GTX and Win 7 64 bit, 9 gb ram,Alienware Aurora . I have changed my drivers 4 times and this is happening a lot and I am worried this constant forced shut down is ruining my computer. Anyone have any ideas.

Contact game support or keep an eye on the forums, I bet your not the only dealing with it.

I dont have any problems running it myself.

EDIT* And by forums I mean the official forums

You should at least try some other games to verify that it's not a recent failure of your graphics card.

Freezing? Well, it is Blizzard. 

Did you check temps? You should also post in Hardware, Quizzical should be able to help.

Tera and SWToR work fine. Temp monitor shows no spikes or problems like that but with the freezing cannot really check that before the freeze.

 

When I did a search I saw other people with the same problem but no definitive fix as yet . I do not think it is a good idea for me to play right ? Not with all the freezing and cute the Blizzard crack ...lol why did I not realise that.

Also have you tried uninstalling it and going with a fresh copy?

I've had something similar happening to me AFTER the patch. The game glitches and flashes and lags me like hell. Most of the time it'll recover, but then I'd be dead. The other times my screen goes blank and freezes then I'd have to close the program and restart it up. It happens often, but then the times that it doesnt, it'll run smoothly.

Not sure what happened during that patch but my wifes machine (running an Nvidia 260) kept locking up.  I cleaned up all my parts (not a big chore as I do maintain my machines) and got no profit from the action.  I downloaded the EVGA Nvidia tweak tool and found that the default fan settings were not running high enough to maintain temperatures.  I fixed this and haven't had a crash since.  Obviously, your mileage may vary.

Enable V-sync

It will force your gfx card to run game at 60 fps.

Otherwise it runs game at 1000+ fps on good graphic cards. And it can literally set them on fire along with whole PC.

Freezing of PC is least of your worries ;)

I'm not doubting your fix but it does sound odd.  The human eye can't detect much difference beyond 60 fps.  So why would Blizzard code the game to waste GPU resources redrawing the picture at break neck speeds.  Once you get above 200 or so even the monitor won't keep up.

Dont know, ask them.

They had same problem with SC2.

But also some other new games that have use 3d graphic but are not demanding experience same problem. "Legend of Grimrock" for example. Anyway. Save your gfx card from overheating ;)

The problem has come back with the recent patch. This is getting to be a pain. I never thought I would say this but this constantly online thing is ruining it. I could have played without updating when the game worked but now every patch screws it up for me.

 Nope. In the graphics option there is a setting for maximum background framerate. This is something different.

Still wrong, thats for fps when not focused, foreground fps is the right one :)

However, it sometimes acts wierd, similar to a generic vsync problem, so try it out with ctrl r and adjust it so you actually get the number you have set, not 15fps when you set 40 or 33fps when you set 50.

Flame on!
