I get the occasional crash where the screen freezes and I have to exit via task manager. I could go a few hours without it happening or it could happen multiple times within the span of a few minutes. I’ve followed Caloss2’s guide on the new client / nvidia control panel and nvidia inspector. Any other tweaks to get the new client more stable? I crashed while raiding in TotW which was a pain. Any specific graphics options I should have disabled? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
This has been happening to me as well. Random freezes where CPU spikes. Then eventually it goes back to normal.
If you wait long enough does it unfreeze? Or do you have to force quit the game?
For me it does eventually unfreeze.
Mine crashes every time I try to re-enter the game after Alt-tabbing out of it. Sometimes after zoning also.
Try using borderless window mode instead of fullscreen. That fixed alt tabbing for me.
I can’t use windowed mode with my 4k monitor. The 1920x1080 resolution I use is a tiny window in that mode.
Window mode on the “new client” should do 4K. I know I use it in 3440x1440 without issue in just window mode (not borderless) and it’s been working fine for some time now.
I had the freezing for a minute or so recently, however I was installing something in the background and it hasn’t happened since. Maybe there’s a background task utilising your network connection as this is what it appears to have been for me.
The crashes are a “feature” of the new client. I guess the payroll ran out before they could tweak those bugs out, and they are sometimes predictable at certain locations (although even this can vary). I know Rome and Wailing Wastes can sometimes cause a freeze and crash quite regularly. As I say, I view them as “features” and just live with them to be able to play in the resolution I do.
