Random Crashes


Recommended Posts

Since late October, I've been experiencing occasional random crashes with the Homecoming CoH 64 bit client, a few times a week.  Note that I have not tried the 32 bit client.  It started shortly after the October 23rd patch, so I thought that perhaps it had something to do with particle physics as the crashes were normally in intense action sequences in teams or leagues.  I tried lowering the number of particles, but I still got the occasional crash.  So I tried turning particle physics down from high to low.  Still got the occasional crash.  I re-validated in Tequila.  Still got the occasional crash.  Finally, last week, I completely disabled particle physics.  Yesterday, I got a crash, and again tonight I got a crash.



At this point I'm not sure what it is going on.  As I said, particle physics is now completely disabled.  Before yesterday, all of the crashes were during combat in a large team or league.  Yesterday though was weird.  I finished a Rikti mothership raid LFG trial a few minutes ago, and zoned.  Once I zoned, I started rubberbanding like crazy, every few seconds.  I double checked my connection, and it was fine.  The traceroute looked good, and I had no lag while web browsing.  A few minutes later, the game crashed.


Tonight, I was on a full team, but we weren't in combat.



Here's the crash dump from last night:






Here's the crash dump from tonight:





I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro.  The system has 16 GBs of RAM with a Nvidia 980 video card.  I'm using two monitors, with CoH normally played on the second monitor in borderless windowed mode.

TBH, it still feels GFX like you've been aiming, but could also be the RAM. I'd start with Safe Mode -> x86 with minimal GFX and step up on thing at a time. Annoying as hell, but it's a process. Other obvious things like shutting down anything you don't need to test for something writing to RAM it shouldn't be and a HDD health test.
