Why does the client crash/freeze every 2-4 matches?

tanks48 1 week ago • updated 5 days ago 4

The game client crashes/freezes every 2-4 matches, have had it happen after 1 before.

Followed the steps here already, even uninstalled the game with the uninstall program and downloaded it again.

It's really annoying that I have to reload the game every 20-30 minutes if I play matchmaking, otherwise it just crashes after ~1 hour of contiuous playing. I don't have other programs running either.


With crashing I mean both "Critical Errors" and actual "Program not responding" crashes.

That didn't work, have tried it before and yesterday, but I still get crashes. The only thing re-installing really did yesterday was cutting my fps to 40, and making both my cpu and my gpu go to 80°C, after which my laptop bluescreened (my drivers probably caused it, but tanki probably had some part in it). And my latop isn't exactly the type laptop on which games should cause BoDs.


To add:

This is not a problem that recently started, I've had this problem for a couple of months now.

Greetings!

CPU or GPU overheating is not the fault of tankionline

To reduce your temps, verify your fan is set to 'performance' mode, or always on. Clean out the vents/heatsink fins. Don't leave your laptop on insulating material (e.g. on your bed or coach). Use a cooling pad underneath. Check that the CPU is set to dynamically change the operating frequency.


The overheating only happens the first few matches after re-installing the game. I can play other more resource intensive games without overheating, but this does.


To add (v2):

I updated my drivers yesterday and have just installed the most recent version of Flash (31), still get crashes after 2 matches.
