First of all ive played on and off for years since early release, more after 2005. I think the issue started around april 2018, i am playing with the old client, ive had this PC since a year ago so it didn’t do it at first.
First i thought it had to do with having more than one client open at one time but it keeps happening as randomly even with one client open, i don’t do anything specific when it happens, just slack in ICC or possibly do a xan raid or an inferno mission.
This kind of stuff don’t happen otherwise at all, not with any game, my pc has sometimes ran for days no issues before i shut it down myself, with Anarchy Online it happens nearly everyday i play, atleast once.
I am playing on Windows 7 latest version, with Core i5 3570k, 8gb of 1600mhz ram and an nvidia 960 2gb version, my client is installed on my second hard drive, not the SSD that has windows on it, i haven’t played on new client to test if it crashes my computer as well due to the other issues ive ran to with it in the past, for example the countless client crashes.
Now i know not all of the info might be relevant but anything might help in the end, also there is no error about it in windows logs, other than the forced shutdown message which automaticly comes when my only option to temporarily fix the problem is to shutdown my pc, how it happens is that everything just stops, images on the screen, mouse, pc becomes totally unresponsive until forced to shutdown. Ive tried alt tabbing, control alt delete spam and all kinds of things i could’ve thought of.
I understand that the game is old, not fully working with newer parts and stuff, the reason for this can be one of many, but if there is anything that could be ruled out to see if there is any change, would be great.
