Ever since the launch of Season 7 on Tribble and today when it was released on holodeck I have been experiencing severe graphic issues when it comes to even getting ingame. I can't stay logged in for more then 5 minutes with out a black screen then having a error pop up saying "Windows has recovered from a graphics error"
I already have the game's graphics on the lowest setting as it is and my graphics driver is up to date. I never had a issue before this season so I am unsure what is going on here in regards to this issue.
I am really hoping the stability gets fixed soon because I really want to be able to play and try out all the new content for Season 7.
I am experiencing the same exact issue. Before season 7 My computer ran STO perfectly, without a hitch. Now, any combat, what so ever freezes my graphics and I get a message that windows recovered from a graphics acceleration issue.
I have posted about this before, yet absolutely no response from Cryptic. They seriously screwed something up with S7.
One response I got was the fact it was direct x11 and some computers can't handle it. I changed back to direct x9, but I am still experiencing the crashes. This was from a fleet mate, not Cryptic.
I am experiencing the exact issue, I log to the game, blackscreen, game freezes my entire system and I have to force boot my system. Happened to me on tribble too and I could not participate in the Beta.
Season 7 is being a pain in the ass, we need this issue fixed.
I have also tried to flash my BIOS, and that did nothing. Now this does happen with Eve Online as well, however for EO I "know" exactly what causes it. I can predict when it "will" happen; no questions.
For EO it crashes if I jump a star-gate, however I can bypass this by simply minimizing the window for 5-10 seconds then bringing the game back up. I know it may sound weird, but it works like a charm.
But STO I can't even do that, I don't know when it will happen, it goes down randomly every couple minutes. I have had to force close STO, but if I force close STO after a crash, everything gets messed up on my computer (eg. Windows 7 task bar and windows no longer have that blue bar lining, and instead is grey as if it was from Windows 2000; and no images/flash will display on websites), so this is seriously screwing up with my computer regardless ...
