Whats the deal with this postprocessing effects, it seems to make things look a little less sharp when its on, more colourful but a little blurry, will try the dynamic lighting thing when the server eventually works.
I played another couple of episodes, dynamic lighting off and post processing on, game stable as a rock. Success!
I remember one person suggesting typing '/maxfps 30' (without the quotes) into chat in order to put a limit on how much strain the game will put on the video card, have you tried that?
Yep, tried that too. I muscled my way thru character creation and was able to play for about 3 minutes with my fan set at 100% instead of the normal 50% and the temp went form 79 to 98 within those 3 minutes. Still not resolved for me.
I have been using a Radeon 5750, and the dynamic lighting caused ridiculous amounts of crashes for ground combat alone. Now that I have turned it off, less lag and no crashing. That being said, I'd like to play the game with this function on and not crash.
