Deglos keeps crashing my game

PostAuthor: Trigger » Thu Dec 29, 2016 8:46 pm

As the title says, every time in Deglos my game crashes when i'm just running around, I have noticed it particularly in Nutzgandeleshpeshelelepel (sp?) City Core.

Anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?

It's frustrating as all hell, especially on days like today where i'm trying to get back to my body to get my stuff.

I've run into this in random places, no idea if its the same thing that's plagued me, but if it is, maybe this will help. Try turning the graphics settings way down, this often lets me log in again. You can turn them back up later, but don't do it in the same area you just crashed or it might crash again.

What used to make me crash without any warning was the Shiny Water enabled in video options.

Yeah I turned em all right down and it was sweet. Seems silly, I can play all the latest games on Ultra, but a 20yr old game crashes on me :roll:

It's more like an artist who can draw lifelike illustrations using pens, but can't fingerpaint for shit. :) Is it a Radeon or nVidia? I used to have an awful time with Radeon back in the day on NWN, and switching to nVidia never gave me a problem after that.

It isn't that your newer hardware can't handle it. The "Shiny Water" setting causes all sorts of issues with broken models, not only in the haks, but some BioWare tiles and things as well. Some older cards/drivers were better at ignoring these errors, but a lot aren't, especially when the newer ones try to do so much more. This is my not so technical way of saying I don't really know why some cards/drivers handle it better, but I have looked at many of the models themselves (finding/fixing all the broken ones would take way too much time and effort, outside of a mass batch run through CleanModels... which would probably break more things).

If you never have issues, great, but my advice to everyone is never use "Shiny Water" at all. If you do, it is only a matter of time until you hit some bad model, while some vfx is happening around it, and boom! It doesn't take extra vfx to cause the crashes, but they multiply the problems.

Personally, I don't think "Shiny Water" is all that great anyway. :mrgreen:
