# 1 Major ATI Bug?
01-14-2010, 01:26 PM
It seems that everyime the server decides to crash or go down for maitenence, it kills my computer. A full out crash to nothingness as if the power went out and it only does it when the server crashes. Either theres a bad kill code somewhere but they should kill everyones login like in WoW instead of causing your tower to bite the dust constantly. I checked all my temps, scanned my memory and even did a scan on my raid array and nothing stands out, this is the only game my computer does this to and its almost sickening. Running Ati 4890's in Crossfire.

Asus Formula III Mobo
Phenom 2x4 955 @ 3.21ghz
6gb 1333 (non-oc'd) ram
XFX 4890 Dual graphics cards in crossfire
Raid 0- Dual 10k rpm velociraptor hdd's with 1 1tb backup drive

YES. I have the same problem with Starbase 24 and my ATI 5770. The game crashes and hard locks my computer everytime I try to play through it, requiring a reboot. Doesn't happen anywhere else.

I'm also having the crazy flickering problem, even with settings set all the way to low (HD5770) Ive heard of some people fixing similar problems in other games by enabling geometric instancing, but that option doesn't seem to be available in my catalyst control center anymore (must have been too helpful so they removed it)

it pretty much makes the game impossible to play, Ive managed to blindly stumble my way to the surface of vega, but it's gotten impossible to work around now.

I get the same issues on my 4870. It keeps crashing with some issue with the dx9 driver doing ground combat with the klingons.
