  1. Just so you know, this game has been very stable, with very few personal crashes, and almost no system-wide crashes until just the past few weeks. The Developers wanted to bring on some American units to play with, and make some changes for the long-term advancement of the game. (Yes, it's been terrible to have the game crashing, and this Needs To Be Fixed ASAP!!) Don't be too discouraged, as the Rats will fix the crashes and we'll all be back to having great battles! I've been playing for many years, and this is The Worst its ever been for me with game crashes. The crashing we are experiencing is NOT the Norm. When it's stable again we'll stop *****ing and have fun playing again! S! Stalg

  3. I'm experiencing a new (for me) problem of small 1-second freezes in the game when everything locks up like you are going to CTHL but then it unfreezes. Happens every 10-seconds or so sometimes. It shows a FPS of "1" and then goes back to normal. Anyone know what causes this? My FPS in general is fluctuating widely now as well.... from 10-120 without even moving! Strange stuff.
  4. Vampress, when you say "stutters" are you referring to quick freezes in the game where it locks up and then is fine again? Sort of like the freeze you get when you CTHL, but it recovers? These freezes last just a second or so for me, but are awful for gameplay. That's what's been happening to me today, for the first time in years of play. Any known fixes? thx
  5. In a separate thread, Munchkin mentioned that accidentally running the game in the wrong compatibility mode dropped his fps. Fix: Right-click on the game's .exe-icon, select Properties, select Compatibility, and make sure you are not running Compatibilty for the incorrect operating system. (or deselect compatibility completely and see what happens). Thanks Munchkin, You saved my playability! This fix made my FPS go from unplayable 8-25fps to 40-100fps! I was running Vista compatibility mode on Windows 7...lol. CRS should sticky this fix!!!! S!
  6. I now have Windows 7, and was getting the bad framerates when accidentally running the game in Windows 7 in Vista Compatibility mode (don't remember which service pak for the mode).
  7. Well if that's the case is was a good dream... a Really, Really good dream
  8. Jaeger, All I know is that I have been playing the game since 1.31 release with 7-25fps everywhere I went. Any battle in towns were under 25fps every time. My fps never got above 35. I changed the compatibility mode from "Vista compatibility" to "no compatibility" on my Windows 7 system and instantly got 40+ fps even in towns with heavy action, and up to 100fps. I made no other changes to my system of the game settings. I'm a long-time player, and I know how to compare system performance fairly well. This was no slight improvement...it was a radical change for the better. S!

  10. I just bought a new i5-750 266 Quad Core with 8gb ram. Unfortunately it comes with a GeForce 210 (which I plan on yanking out immediately). My question is, should I keep my old GeForce 7900GTX, which has served me well in WW2 Online, or is it worth spending another $200 to get a GTX260? Reviews show my 7900GTX much better than the 210, but not as good as the GTX260. What about dual-card options? Thanks for the help!
  11. Thanks for all the input everyone. The motherboard on my new system (should be here in a few days) only supports Crossfire,not SLI (I think), so that will likely be another factor. I will keep the 7900GTX for now, see how it runs, and get a new one later when prices drop a bit more. Prob ATI because of the lack of SLI on my mb. (Be my first..I've always been a GeForce guy). AS far as monitors go... I'm going to hook it up to my 46" Sony Bravia just to see how it runs S!
  12. OK, thanks for the help! I assume it's not possible to double up with my existing 7900gtx, right? (if I got one new 5770?)
  13. I had the game running for several months on my Vista machine. The performance was not what my XP machine was capable of, but it worked fine. Just low fps. After the last major patch (TOE,etc) I can't get Playgate to work. It stalls out when checking for updates before the game actually loads. I've tried downloading the entire current version of the game. Tried turning off firewalls, etc etc.
  14. Ever since the last patch I cant get the game to load. After I enter my name/password, it brings up a screen saying "Receiving Update" and then it stops after 2 seconds with the message: "Playgate.exe has stopped working" Then a WW2Online webpage somes up saying I was unable to connect to the patch server. I have removed the game AND Playgate and reinstalled both 3 times. I've downloaded the FULL install so shouldn't need a patch at first. I've used Checknet, all seems fine. I've turned off all firewalls. My account status is current and I can play on home comp fine. I've gone through all of KFS' suggestions on the other thread. Any ideas what may be happening? This machine does use Vista but I didnt have problems before this last patch. Many thanks for any advice that may help. (I know Vista sucks but I have to ue that on my work computer). S!
  15. Thanks for reply but I did download the correct .exe, and I have a router attached to my Vista machine. It really feels like a firewall issue (as described by Kfs1 relating to ports) but I turn the firewall off and it still doesnt work. Anyone know a good link to a thorough step-by-step for disabling all firewalls, just to check? Thanks S!
