I am posting this here to get the most visibility. As those of us with ATI based video cards know we have crash issues in ground combat when using Dynamic Lighting. As I mentioned in anothe thread I have been speaking to some people at Cryptic about this. They have requested that we post in-game crash report (the "Error Tracker ID" showed when the client crashes) for them to examine.
I would ask everyone with an ATI based card to please turn back on your Dynamic Lighting or undo the tweaking you have done to stop crashes with your ATI card and post the crash reports in this thread for Cryptic. The more data we can provide them the quicker they can find this issue and solve it for us.
i have a card like this an have 0 issues with full graphics. I like a lot of others had issues with my old card when the game launched as it would override the cards heat sensor and cause it to overheat repeatedly. I switched to one of these cards just for that reason and have been very happy.
From what I've heard, it only affects HD5xxx series. I have a 4850 and no problems with Dynamic Lighting.
I've got a 6870, and it certainly crashes with dynamic lighting above default during ground combat (did the Breen episode with it on, and turned it off after realising the problem - haven't crashed since). [the 6xxx are basically 5xxx internally - so that seems logical]
Okay while I understand the reason this thread was moved I think it is a bad idea. The idea here is to help Cryptic by getting as much information as we can. Moving the thread to a section that gets only minor traffic compared to the original location is not going to help us do this.
Guys if yoiu have this error and know how to reproduce it then please do so and post the error log information here, that way Cryptic can begin tracking this.
BTW back to the first paragraph, I am curious, why was there not a note put in here by the moderator that moved the thread? Usually a moved thread has a reason.
