View Full Version : Blackout on Griffons (and not scared of heights)

12-21-2004, 12:33 PM
<DIV>Bug since beta but with a new twist. Now I blackout more times than not after mounting a griff and the new twist is... I get dumped at 0000,0000,0000, which in the Commonlands happens to be on top of that hill full of Bee's and Scorpions!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>On my wifes screen I actually see myself land on the correct tower (Nek Station), but then I flicker in and out of existance until I totally disappear. She can cast buffs, heal me etc from the tower, but I can not see anything. When I did a loc it said I was at 0/0/0 even though she was on Nek tower casting on me... even though I disappeared off her screen and was half the zone away according to my loc.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Anyhow, I have to relog to clear it and upon login I am at 0/0/0 on that hill and have to run for my life each time.</DIV>

<DIV>This happens to me in Qeynos now and again also (on the non test servers).  It used to kick me after the blac screen flight finished and then I would log back in at the destination.  It happened two days ago and did something like you described.  I came back near the north Qeynos gate.</DIV>

That happened to me on Perma a few weeks ago, really freaky. I thought it was my vid card. I haven't noticed it on test yet however my test toon is not that high yet to be taking griffons a lot.

I blacked out on a griffon on Live servers the other night, woke up in a field of angry scorpions in the CL... Yikes!EDIT: Running Radeon 9800 Pro, if the graphics card helps.<p>Message Edited by Kerrick on <span class=date_text>12-22-2004</span> <span class=time_text>12:56 PM</span>

<DIV>I had this happen as well... NVid 6800 GT... </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>To bypass the problem I zoom into first person while boarding the Griffon.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Stay in first person the entire flight.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>DONT OPEN OR DO ANYTHING while riding.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>WHen I land I zoom back to my normal 3/4 view play... Havent crashed since.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Arismath.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> GUK</DIV>

Also you may want to adjust your perfomance settings to High performance. I too had that issue til I started playing around with the settings, now i can ride in 3/4 veiw no problm. But there really should be a fix for that so perhaps in the future the camera auto kicks you to first person to account for those who arn't running at high.

Lol its to simulate blacking out from extreme G-forces in a plane. J/K never had this happen to me on my 9800pro with 3.9 cats

<DIV>I have noticed this happining in certian places in the Tradeskill instance in Qyenos.  Once I was between a coupel of looms instead of in front of them and I kept getting black screen.  and 1 forge does it to me. </DIV>

<DIV>Okay two different issues here:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>First I black out on Griffons in The Commons, but never in Antonica... weird huh?  But it's not my graphic settings.  I can confirm this, I set my graphics to the lowest, ugliest setting, or the highest best setting and I get the same result.  First person doesn't cure it for me.  I still black out.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>In trade halls, my wife was having the black out problem.  Ready for the solution to this one?  She has a 5900XTOC from BFG, and as you all know it's slightly over closked +20mhz on the GPU, -30 on the RAM.   The card has had it's tempreture sensors disabled by BFG, not a good idea, my 5600 from BFG has a tempreture sensor so I can monitor ofr Overheating.  She tired everything, new drivers, fresh load of XP, disabled all the graphics (played in ugly mode) and things worked a bit better, but after 20 mins of tradeskill work, pop, Black Screen.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>So I downloaded the CoolBits addon for her NVidia card and it activated the "overclock" screen.  I then proceeded to under clock her card 10mhz below the specs on the stock 5900XT card.  She hasn't had a single black out since in the trade halls, but now she's having the griffon problem like the rest of us.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Okay SoE your turn to figure it out... hehe I did my part.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>
