    Ok so I think I know the final answer- But here is my question- Warning Nudity

    Alright since the patch on Tuesday I cannot play the game with any stability. Let me post a sample picture of just 1 issue of what is happening to me...

    *notice: the leafing on the character, the sky, the toolbar icons, the face tattoo is jacked up, the texture issue above toolbar, and stop staring at the tits... *

    -

    The computer also does this now when playing-

    1. Complete freeze
    Control-alt-delete takes me to windows, where I then click back onto the AoC program at bottom. When I re-enter the game I can play for a few minutes before I have to control-alt-delete again.

    2. Complete freeze + added bonus of blue screen
    As of above but crashes to a blue screen with a bunch of numbers/characters for half a sec, then computer shuts down.
    Upon reloading windows acts normally.

    3. When I select low settings and click apply the screen goes black. I loose all graphics but I am still in game. I click on high settings and it all comes back.


    What I have done -
    Disk Defrag
    Clean Disk
    Verify/repair with no issues found.

    Computer specs -
    E4400 dual core @ 2.00
    DDR2 4 gigs Ram
    Nvidia Geforce 8500 gt
    Windows XP

    So you all going to tell me to go get a better PC? Anyone else getting any of this at all?

    It seems odd, but I would reinstall the entire game. It could well be that some local file is messing you up and there might be no fix. However, before you do anything I would /petition or send in a ticket. Your Problem would drive me nuts, but there is always a way out.

    This is an old fix, so may not work for your new issue, but have you selected high graphics, turn off all shadows, and select Shader 2.0. Also, just another thought, I have only ever had one problem and it caused the BSOD and apparently it had something to do with having an AMD board and it was only ever fixed by the next patch. So, you may be in for a wait until the next patch if a reinstall does not fix you. Also, as always make sure your drivers are up to date.

    I found that after yesterday's patch I had to redo this, it seems the patch brought me back to the default "high" settings.

    Do I need to update motherboard drivers too? I know my graphic card drivers are up to date.

    I think 90% of the time it's your graphics driver that needs updating, but if you are having to do that you might as well get your sound card and mobo drivers up to date too.

    Guerre,

    It seem to be working now...?? But like you said I am running on high with shader 2.0. Hopefully this patch today will stabilize me a bit more.
