Graphics issue after playing followed by OS crashing.

I have never once crashed while playing COH on my mac.  Not once.

However, after I'm done playing I MUST reboot.

If I don't reboot after playing and I try to use basic application like Firefox I get all sorts of graphical artifacts, and within minutes of that, my laptop will freeze and crash.

Anyone else experience this issue?

It _only_ happens _after_ playing COH.  Never during.

Firstly, file a support ticket for actual issues or try the Discord for faster (?) replies.

 

Secondly, this 'feels' like an issue related to the graphics card/drivers. It sounds like the graphics memory isn't letting go of what the game last loaded to the GPU, it's still trying to keep it active in memory, and then crashes when that memory is then mistakenly accessed again. This could also be RAM related I think, but IDK enough about how the Mac manages the memory.

 

@jackalcoh, what are your system specifications? You can post a screenshot from the Apple Menu->"About this Mac", but you should block out the serial number. Knowing what GPU you have is helpful I think in this case.

 

@One4fun68, I'd recommend creating your own thread / ticket for that as we don't have enough info here about your problem. Don't forget to include your system specs as well as things like what programs are running in the background (the stuff in your taskbar near the clock and any other apps open).
