Thread: Crashing On Preset Battles

    Default Crashing On Preset Battles

    Anyone else crashing when they play the preset battles?

    Every time I play a naval battle that's preset it crashes about 15 minutes into the battle.

    Anyone?

    I seem to have figured out the problem. The game is NOT alt tab friendly. It's best to just have Steam running in the background and nothing else.

    I'm on Vista 32-bit. No other games of mine have any issues with alt-tab.

    Someone should look into this. I've tested it thoroughly.

    Thanks

    You generally aren't supposed to alt-tab out of any full-screen game.

    Cool store, bro! I want some ham.
    No ham, pepsi.
    They make deli slices of frozen pepsi now? Awesome!
    You also need to purchase a small freezer for storage of your pepsi.
    It runs on batteries. You'll need a few.
    Uhh, I guess I won't have pepsi then. Do you have change for a twenty?

    I second this, I have always always had problems alt+tabbing from full screen games with every computer I ever owned.

    If you are a messenger-o'holic or doing other things at the same time, you put the game in windowed mode.


    The fact you are alt+tabbing in a middle of a battle makes it worse. The system is devoting all it's resources into the application, then when you alt+tab, you are forcing all those resources from the game onto other things and the games wants/them needs them, especially with slower/lower end/older computers, this causes the computer to lag like crazy and can cause them to crash.

    Only problem-free experiences come from windowed mode.

    I've just never had a problem alt-tabbing out of a game with my PC before.

    It's no big deal - I just won't do it with this game...but my experience in the past is that it's never caused me any problems.
