CMBB Crashes my system


Recommended Posts

I installed this truely brilliant game 2 weeks ago. However, the last couple of days my system

crashes after a few minutes of game play (loading a battle/operation). What happens is that the

monitor displays a checkerboard pattern (alternating horizontal and vertical lines) or just goes

white or sometimes black. My PC is then unresponsive to keyboard commands (alt/backspace even

Ctrl/Alt/Del) I have to reboot the system with the main switch. Any ideas as what the problem

may be. I have reinstalled the game, graphics/sound drivers etc to no avail.

I have also installed all the pateches for the game now at 1.03 ver

Do you have any background tasks (realplayer etc.) installed? Try stopping all of them.

Sounds like some sort of overheating problem with your videocard. The 'checkerboard pattern' suggests that your video memory may be overheating. You may want to check that your videocard has adequate ventilation and that the GPU fan is spinning. The simplest thing to do would be to take off your computer case cover and see if that effects how long you can run CMBB for.

Thanks guys, to be honest I had tried switching off all background apps initially, but to no avail

I took the sides off and I was able to complete a battle (Royal opponent) with it crashing 3 times. Looks like it was over heating of the graphics card. It is rather warm here in dear old blighty

Thanks again for taking the time to respond
