I have played SWL since day one with exactly this PC setup with no problems at all and the PC is kept clean with minimal installations as it is only used for gaming. I only had a few crashes and the infamous NY raid crash, no other issues with good performance and fast loading : i7-4770K, sabertooth, 16 gig RAM, Geforce GTX 780, Win10 64 Home.
Suddenly last wednesday (maybe it was after last servr restart ? not sure) I logged in and I could not zone into Dark Agartha, I got to the zoning screen but nothing loaded and even waiting for several minutes I never zoned in. I had to alt-tab and kill the game to log back in.
This is now happening randomly 20 to 80% of times I try to zone with no apparent reason. While in a zone I can play normally, no lag, no strange crashes, nothing.
As I said nothing apparentely changed on my side so I was wondering if this is something someone else experienced and if there is an easy fix for it before I try to disinstall and re-install the game (already tried the reapair data a few times).
The only doubt I have is that in the last month I had a noisy fan and maybe it could be an overheat problem, but can’t see why it should cause problems only when zoning. Anyway I will get myself a new fan and change it in the next days … Should I check the intergity of any other PC component ? I checked the SSD but maybe memory ?
Thanks in advance for any help
