See if any of you guys could help me... Long story short, I was playing Ragefire over the weekend and was having my PC completely freeze up in game, had to cold boot multiple times etc... Started running Win EQ in the background the freezing stopped happening, and I was able to play (although the game seemed a bit choppier than usual.

What is Win EQ doing to cause that to stop happening? Is it an issue with newer CPU's? Also since it was a patch day, Win EQ has not been updated yet, any work around so that I dont constantly crash? Thanks
Win EQ has improved CPU balancing for the client from what I've heard - sounds like you might have a core going bad/overheating if I was to wager a guess. If you want a fix besides Win EQ, I'd look at making sure your CPU and GPU fan/sink isn't full of dust and overheating. [Had this problem myself like a week ago, sink was coated in cat dander it had sucked in that I scraped out]

Having planned on Fennin Ro for a while back during classic when it was the highest pop server Ragefire is like that but much worse. Hopping on to a low to medium pop server with Kunark made the entire game come alive and it's a big part of why my personal nostalgia begins there. Anyone hating on instancing now hasn't spent enough time in Rathe Mts or Upper Guk with 95 people fighting with everyone over everything and going nowhere. This is like four servers worth of people stuffed on to one and the game doesn't actually work at that point.

It really won't - more money in the system with more players will buoy any loss of value from extra drops.
Right, I agree, but then you kind of start running up against the issue of it being more effective to farm for items rather than plat/gems. So, like I said, the economic side of things will still see a big impact, even if the influx of extra plat is enough to offset/buoy increased supply of items.

That's not really a bad thing though IMO - more sense of accomplishment looting something yourself rather than buying from farming trivial shit.

Turned Max FPS to 59, still having the issue. Heat sink is one of the self-contained corsair units, case is ultra clean (GPU included) & temps are perfectly fine. PC is running Witcher 3/WoW etc perfectly no issues at all. In EQ my driver will crash and recover, or freeze. AMD card, most up to date drivers.

Any continued suggestions are always appreciated.

PS this is not the adv loot issue either.

On the topic of item pricing, with more people being able to actually play due to instancing I'd imagine more items get purchased and consumed. Sure market volatility on things like HQ cat pelts might drive them down pretty low. But shit like Glowing black stone or fishbone earings will still be gated by their rarity and spawn windows.

It really depends on how many instances get opened up and when.
That's what i dont get about that complaint. Sure there will be 3x as many drops, but there's 4x the amount of people. All this is doing is making the drops even with the population.

DirectX been checked? After that I'm baffled.

If he used the same name, he had a thread about exploding dicks, another thread asking for gamer girls to play with etc. You get the jist.

Timezone?

Kreugen it's different for each zone, based on the number of NPC's in that zone.

They always launch these early. Be spamming like 30 minutes before "launch"
