Oh boy. THIS thing again.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Prince Caspian, May 14, 2008.

  1. Ok, I thought that this was a spectre from the past, but it has raised its hideous visage again.

    As many of you may know, I play the KR client. I think its great -- I mean, when it works. But one of the most infuriating bugs, which I assumed was corrected, has re-appeared.

    Basically, what happens is that the screen gets a few weird "shards" (not servers, jagged triangles) from the edges of the screen, and the game starts to stutter.

    Then, here's the fun part -- then it freezes up and my monitor blinks off and the XP screen saver starts to hover around, like it isn't getting input. 90% of the time, I am stuck until I manually switch the computer off. A few times, it will come back, and run choppily.

    I updated my graphics drivers, and still had the problem. Finally, this issue disappeared about 6 months back. Well, now it's back.

    Is anyone else having this problem? It seems to especially act up in crowded areas like town.

    Oh, and I missed you guys. Glad to see the forums back up. :p

    Turn off the screen saver?..Put the computer power mode in "always on", never turn off monitor. I'm sure you tried these, but, hey, it's worth a try.

    I play 2-d and have been having problems at times also. I have a good video card, with 512 memory and it has been updated. My main computer has 2 gigs of memory, besides the 512. When I'm in Dark Moonglow I lag, get 20 little pictures of the same thing trailing along and then my monitor goes blank and says " input device not supported " and I have to re-boot to get back in game. Only once has it happened outside of Moonglow, and that time I did not get booted nor did my monitor go out. Funny thing is I only have the Problem in uo.
