A couple releases/expansions back, there was a problem with overheating computer hardware for some. A ‘tweak’ was added to that’s release’s patch, and that did tone down the problem. Somewhat.
Instead of getting 2k+ framerate when minimized, I only get 300 or so FPS. While the framerate spikes when minimized, even in full screen mode there’s some sort of problem still trying to melt my desktop. This leave me being able to update a few things while docked, then logout & wait for my computer to cool down enough that it’s not a laggy glitchy mess.
I have sent in a bug report (EBR-120078, originally on May 10th, updated on July 20th)
No response as of yet. I brought up this problem on the old forums, there wasn’t much of a response there either before the Forum format moved to it’s new home.
Is it connected to the new sun graphics? The change in advanced audio settings? A CPU and/or GPU stress test I don’t know about in the game client? I’ve moved graphic settings to nearly full potato, made sure Eve Chat was not active, stuck to the basic audio slider & made sure the shiny new ones are not turned on, checked ResCache with no missing or corrupted files popping up. What do CCP, so I can play without turning my tower into a melty useless paperweight?
