  • Crash to desktop

    While playing POE I have crashed to desktop twice last night. Everything seem to be working ok. But in mid game boom crash to desktop. Re-enter game and lplay for an hour or so and it did it again.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    That happened to me once last night on the Zhytomyr map while switching weapons. That's not the first time I've crashed on that map.

      All I know is that it happens to everyone at one time or another.

        It just started happening to me. Now it happends 2x a night.
        I'm going to reformat to see if that helps. It's been 2 years.

          It's happened to at least once a night that I'm on POE2. I don't seem to remember it happening before vanilla 1.4, but I think POE2 was only out for about a week before 1.4. I'm assuming 1.4's the culprit, but I could be mistaken.

                Been happening to me a lot over the last week....especially on Fallen. When POE first came out this didn't happen. SO I'm gonna see if reinstalling the full 1.4 patch(did incremental initially) and POE again has any impact.

                  It started happening to me originally on vanilla, and I haven't upgraded to 1.4 yet.

                  There's really two possibilities here, but we probably only see one due to everyone having the same problem.

                  First: 1.4 is curropt in some way, and crashes to desktop when certain files are loaded.

                  Second: Concidering BF2's resource usage, it could very well possibly be that with POE's extensive real-time environment (which we didn't see as much of in BF2) our PC's are acting, in some alien fashion, very weird towards the game itself.

                  To test the second theory, I'd probably ask everyone to make sure all background programs are closed while playing POE2. Check for hidden programs in the Processes menu of the Task Manager to make sure that nothing that shouldn't be running isn't. If this test produces the same results, and I wanted to move further in my research, I'd ask people to play the game a few times in safe-mode with networking to see if the problem still persists. If so, then it's the game itself, if not, then it's the game taking entirely too many resources.

                  It'd be a good idea to test, but I'm leaning more towards the game itself than all of these PC's not being able to handle the game.

                    I'm not sure if it's happening on any particular map, but I do know it's happening on a regular basis, at least once everytime I play the game. i'll double check my taskmgr and see if anything that isn't supposed to be running isn't, but I'm pretty sure there won't be anything out of the ordinary.

                        I know that Lucky Shot CTD'd twice in a row and More Gooder did once. I did once last night as well. It seems to be infectious.

                            Yeah, I used to get it a couple of times a week, now if I'm sitting down to an evening of PoE I can crash 4-5 times before finally giving up.

                              This right here is the worst part. After I've CTD'd 3 times or so I just stop playing and find something else to do. I love POE but enough is enough.

                              Oh and on another note have any of ya'll (yes I said "ya'll") noticed excessive ping rates? I've been getting pings in the upper thousands and I KNOW that's not right.
