I’ve tried them all. Very rarely was the Windows button + X able to call up the power user window and then be able to initiate the task manager to end the “not responding” process. But 98% of the time, it was a hard lock condition with no recourse but to power down and reboot.
Granted, this system isn’t the “latest and greatest” top line , poo poo “recommended” such as a Ryzen Vega high dollar rig. But it was and still is more than adequate and capable setting comfortably high on the graphics scale before and since the expansions came out. It’s just the hard lock issue began after the first expansions.
Even my old server rig running dual opterons had no issues running this before it perished before the updates and expansions.
This system is a gigabyte 990 FXA UD3-R5 mobo with 32GB Ripjaws RAM, and a Samsung 860 EVO SSD, it’s a water cooled AMD FX 9590 running on a new “Platinum” rated power supply. With an AMD FX5500 XT 8GB dedicated card. Windows 10 PRO (Full Retail) latest update. Drivers are up to date as necessary when applicable. More specifically, BIOS settings are using defaults and no changes were made since that was updated. No overclocking because it is unnecessary and not even needed.
It has affected only this client. It did not affect the rented server I was using. Still it occurs playing this game solo either on the Exiled Lands or Isle of Siptah. (since I’ve shut the server down).
There was a brief time when it began affecting this system while playing a different game. But following Windows updates resolved the issue involving that game. However, although the Windows Updates did not resolve the issue while playing this game, the issue seemed to occur less frequently until additional updates to this game renewed the increased random frequency at which it occurs. Believe me, it’s been infuriating enough to uninstall this game more then twice as it has pushed my patience. Still, here I am after having installed it again a third time (or 4th time) and damn it all, the issue persists.
Tell me that isn’t a programming conflict issue.
