Rigs have you tried setting the default "Borderless Window" graphic setting to "Fullscreen"? I noticed that the few hardlocks (with sound continuing) I got with the game completely dissapeared once I switched to Fullscreen. Also turned the FPS setting from "unlimited" to locked to 60. (Your system might not handle 60, locked at 30 the game ran much smoother on my 'old' GTX760).

Well, as I mentioned in the 'OoTB' thread, my issues have been resolved by underclockng my CPU and RAM and updating my BIOS. Just wanted to mention that here as well in case someone is searching for the same answer I was in the future.

My settings in TW3 are 'Full-screen' with fps set to 'Unlimited'. I've seen some people say that setting it to anything other than Fullscreen will cause issues while some say the opposite. Same with the fps setting, some say to lock it and some say doing so causes problems. Since I'm running it on a 19" 4:3 1280x1024 LCD monitor, my GPU has some extra power that is usually used when playing on my 22" Widescreen 16:10 1680x1050 LCD monitor. Running the lower res lets me bump up other settings, such as Post Effects, AF and AA that I would typically keep off or low. Shadows are another frame rate killer for AMD cards in my experience and something I tend to keep low. AA is another one along with Vsync. If a game runs well, first I up the AF, then turn on Vsync and finally, if I have power to spare, I'll turn up shadows or turn on AA. In TW3, AA is off, Vsync is off, shadows are medium and motion blur is off. In GTA5, almost everything is set to 'Normal' except Post Effects and Shaders. Those are Very High or Ultra. The textures might look like ass but at least the effects and sky are pretty bad ass...

New update 1.04 for The Witcher 3 is out. I've solved my earlier issues with both The Witcher 3 and GTA5. Spent nearly all night last night playing both with no problems whatsoever! The solution? Updated my BIOS from it's default original to one released in 2012 (which apparently supports my SSD and RAM much better, since SSD's were a new-ish thing back when this system was originally built in 2010) and slightly underclocked my RAM from 1600 down past it's default of 1333 to 1066. I also set my CPU to it's default 20x multiplier (at 2.66ghz) from what it's been running since being built, 21x (2.8ghz). These changes fixed Windows7 BSOD'ing randomly like five times a day (since it's installed on my 40gb Intel X-25 SSD), The Witcher 3 crashing out after 10 minutes and GTA5 crashing out after 10-15 minutes. The only problem I ran into was The Witcher 3's notorious 'minimizing bug', where the screen tried to minimize itself to the taskbar over and over for about a minute. Then it stops and you can continue playing. This is a known issue that hopefully this new patch corrects. My thanks go to those that gave suggestions in a previous thread, Quinn - InBlack - Retired, much appreciated! Salute

I'm sure the designers are smart enough to realize it if we are. Do you suppose it's simply they assume the average viewer won't be able to wrap their head around something like a Star Destroyer with a bridge on both the top and bottom?

The Bab 5 Star Fury is one of the better sci-fi fighter designs, IMO. The focus of view is towards the forward hemisphere, not the bottom or top. Most star fighter designs are just space versions of the F-15 or whatever.

I think this owes as much to anatomy as psychology. Our heads are on top of our bodies, with our eyes set facing forward.

It seems to me that the Starfury, like the TIE Fighter, has a smaller field of view than a space F-15 cockpit. If you have a bubble cockpit on the top of a ship, the pilot's head pokes up and he has full view of the entire top hemisphere, minus whatever's physically obstructed.

In that Starfury, the pilot is seated back from the glass, so he has less than the full hemisphere's view. He has a cone of vision extending from his eyes to the edges of the glass instead of the full hemisphere, further obstructed because his instruments and controls are in front of him instead of below the glass.

I think if you really wanted to emphasize the forward hemisphere of view, you would put pilots lying down or on their chests, with their heads poking out a bubble facing forward. But neck cramps are probably a thing, and it also doesn't sound very safe for the pilot.

Actually, Minbari fighters are piloted laying down...

So now I have a new 'wrinkle' in this whole saga of getting this game to run right on my system. Before it would crash after about 10 minutes, as I've explained before. I updated to the 1.03 patch, gave the game it's own profile in the AMD Cat Control Panel and set it to 'High Performance'. I've tried just about every single suggestion here and elsewhere short of upgrading my BIOS and underclocking my video card. (I'm not against doing that, I just haven't gotten around to installing Afterburner and testing it)

However, after patching it up to 1.03, I found that it did crash after about 15 minutes, allowing me to get into the prologue and through the combat tutorial but then it straight locked up just when I thought it was actually going to finally work.

(Slight, slight SPOILER!: The exact spot is when you're on the horse following your companion through the ransacked little villages and encounter two wolves and then you get to a bridge. Right there, in the middle of the bridge, it locked)

But after it locked, the sound continued and I was able to alt-tab and then close it out. In this way, no crash log was made. Apparently, this is another well-known crash/freeze bug and I'm currently making my way through this forum thread to see if anyone has found a fix for this. Whether the other problem has been fixed and now I just have this one instead or I have both, I'm not sure...I'll update when I know more... Sigh

I wasn't meaning to touch a nerve, Rigs, but I can't help but think you're overstating things a bit... iRacing boasts on their website that they have "over 55,000 members worldwide," so if that's your metric for a massive community, you've kind of validated my comment right there.

But let's assume there really are millions of people aching for a NASCAR sim racer, say 2-5 million. That is still a very small fraction of the sport's supposed 70+ million fanbase (dwindling every year for the past several, from what I've just read), and is exactly the point I was trying to make.

No, no, it's ok, I guess I was fanboying it a little much. You're right, I didn't have any official facts to back up my claims, I was just talking in relative terms. I'm really waiting for the day that I can jump back into the ol' #63 Bluesnews Chevy again in a worthy single and multiplayer NASCAR centric SIM...none of this arcade stuff or these multiple racing genre sims. iRacing is all we have right now that comes even somewhat close, so those of us that do race tend to put it on a pedestal that, as you pointed out, compared to other sports and gaming genres, would be no more than a small niche community.

Rigs when was the last time you cleaned you CPU Cooler/Fan combo? The reason I ask is because you mention that you have an old MB, and you leave your PC on 24/7 (major dust bunny magnet) so maybe it's been a while. I used to have similar crashes/freezes/lockups in games until I cleaned my CPU/FAN/COOLER (and reapplied thermal paste).

I know this sounds far fetched, but give it a go, it takes two minutes to vacum cleane the fan/cooler at least.

Again, thank you for the suggestion, however, I'm way ahead of you on that...lol. The system is older but it's been in three different cases since I built it in 2010, each one a bigger enclosure class - Mini-ITX, mATX and finally plain ol' ATX. The system sits here on the left side of my desk, with it's left side panel off and two small desk fans (about 6" across) sit next to it blowing cool air on the video card and hard drives. It just had a full cleaning when I reinstalled Windows8 last year and while it might be a little dusty, it's certainly not clogged with dust or dirt or hair or anything like that. I watch this thing like a hawk....or an over-protective father, whichever. It does stay on pretty much 24/7 and it is possible that it could use a new layer of thermal paste. That hasn't been redone since it was built. Aside from another case fan behind the CPU, it's only got the retail box supplied fan and heatsink.

The GPU's fan (an XFX 'Ghost Core' HD7850/1gb) was replaced in September as the previous fan stopped spinning after about 10 months. Since then it's worked fine.

Still, like I said, I do appreciate the suggestions. There could definitely be something I've missed that is obvious to another set of brains/eyes...

I don't think people liking to watch NASCAR (for some reason, it's beyond me TBH) equates to people wanting to virtually play at it. I don't think their target audience is very big into video games, let alone racing sims.

No offense, but you just said that you don't think the audience for games of a sport that you don't like and don't watch are really not into games for said sport. (Unless I read your comment wrong) I respect your opinion and you're welcome to it but you'd probably be surprised how wrong you are. The sim racing community is vast. Just the iRacing part alone is massive, especially the NASCAR sanctioned 'PEAK AntiFreeze Online Cup Series' (which is an official branch of NASCAR...let's see F1 do that!). When NASCAR Racing 2002 and 2003 came out, along with NASCAR HEAT and NASCAR Sim Racing, the community numbered in the millions. It's shrunk since some, but it's still a very dedicated and avid group. You may not hear much about us in the main gaming press or the mass media but like flight simmers, we're there all the same. The amount of money flowing through this industry is as massive as the community.

Now I, myself, can't see the appeal of Rally or Drifting but I recognize that it has some very strong supporters, especially Rally. The new DIRT Rally game/sim has been well received by the community and can only get better as time goes on during it's 'Early Access' period. Still, given how arcade~ish this new NASCAR '15 is, I really wish there was a single-player iRacing/NR2003 equivalent sim out right now. It's a gaping hole that, like space combat-trading sims before it, needs to be desperately filled...

Now now, we're not talking Nascar 2000/Revolution or Nascar Thunder levels of incompetence here. It's a serviceable arcade NASCAR themed racing game and in that regard, it does ok. If you're looking for the next Nascar Racing/single-player iRacing, then you're sorely out of luck. It's all about expectations. Obviously, the only true 'heir to the throne' should be something like a single-player iRacing sim. Why this hasn't been done yet, considering how much more popular NASCAR is in the U.S. compared to F1/V8/Drift/Rally, is very perplexing. No new NASCAR sim but we'll throw out the F1-equivalent of a Madden game every year with each having diminishing returns in both quality and content.... Headscratch

I'm kinda loving it...well, what I can play of it. Like GTA5 before it, I'm getting a crash within 10 minutes of starting. In Witcher3, it's always the same thing, though the end result can vary. The crash log says 'EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (3221225477)' every time and I'm not the only one with this problem either. Sometimes it just drops me back to the desktop, sometimes it locks and requires me to alt-tab or kill the process from Task Manager and then there are the times when it locks my system up hard, requiring a reboot and the first one was a BSOD. So you tell me. I'm totally frakkin' stumped...hopefully this patch helps because I'm out of ideas... Pouting

Hey Rigs, here's my standard troubleshoot I do when games do crazy shit (one of those or all at once might work) :

1. Overclock the GPU a bit less;
2. Try it with Vsync on/off;
3. Kill the virus scanner;
4. Downgrade/upgrade GPU driver;
5. Reboot PC for a change instead of Sleepmode all the time;
6. Turn adaptive power usage off for GPU;
7. Install sentinel and check if your HHD/SSD isn't damaged.

Edit: What I wanted to add but my wife was complaining that breakfast was ready --> to me, your errors scream bad sectors on your HHD or a damaged SSD. So really take sentinel under consideration and act accordingly when the results are less than perfect.

Thank you for the suggestions! Here's my situation based on them...

1. GPU is at normal retail specs, no overclock. Has been slightly overclocked in the past but not since reinstalling Windows8.1x64 last year.

2. I almost always kill Vsync when starting a new game, before I know how it will run performance-wise. And even then I tend to leave it off. Only in older or non-gpu-intensive games will I consider enabling it again, but it's usually the last thing before I enable AA (which is the last thing I do in a game)

3. Virus scanner is BitDefender Free Edition and I close out the 'application' portion of it while the 'service' part stays on in the background. It's a pain in the ass to get it to close entirely but I might try it anyway just to see if there is a difference.

4. Driver was the really stable Cat 14.12's, then when GTA5 came out, I went to the beta 15.4's and those really made my system unstable so I went back to the 14.12's. I can't imagine having anything older than those would do any better as I've used those since release and every other game relatively works. I'm not saying it wouldn't work with a different set, just that I don't see how.

5. I never put my system into SLEEP mode. Ever. Nor Hibernation. My BIOS doesn't support either mode well. It gets rebooted nearly every day when I'm busy, less so when I'm not doing much...and, of course, when some crash takes the whole thing down and requires a reboot...

6. Power is set at 'High Performance' at all times, with or without specific game profiles. Since this is a desktop system that is on 24/7, power usage isn't a concern (which goes back to the Sleep Mode/Hibernation thing)

7. I'm not sure what Sentinel is...I vaguely recall hearing something like it. I have 4 hard drives, two 2tb Western Digitals, one 500gb Seagate and an Intel X-25 40gb SSD. The Witcher 3 resides on one of the 2tb drives. However, given it's rather small install footprint, I can move it to any drive with relative ease. I've been having some trouble with a recent reinstall of Windows7x64 to my SSD and I'm thinking that maybe my motherboard's BIOS doesn't adequately support SSD's. (It's a five year old Gigabyte P55M-UD2 and the original BIOS version, though other updated versions have since been released, I've been reluctant to update it without a pressing need because of the possible problems that could come up from an improper BIOS update procedure. I've never updated a BIOS before. I know it can be relatively easy but I'm still weary of doing it unless I absolutely, positively have no other options)...

I'll see what I can come up with in regards to this 'Sentinel'. In the meantime, this is the forum post of the exact same problem I'm having and those who are also experiencing it...

http://forums.cdprojektred.com/threads/36977-Game-crashes-on-start-up

Note that while most are having trouble with the game starting at all, my issue comes about 10 minutes after start-up, as I've mentioned earlier. The error, however, is exactly the same...

You are aware that's a fan made painting, yes? There's a YT timelapse video of the guy doing it years ago. Still pretty awesome.

EDIT: Found it! Just by sheer coincidence, I was watching an older episode of VSauce3's 9bit and they featured the guy that did the painting AND the video of the speedrun...You can watch it here. Seeing how you linked from his DeviantArt page, you probably already knew but in case some others are interested, it's there...

The three second 'teaser' (I'd call it more like the digital equivalent of blue balls, personally) gave me a huge 'Wolfenstein' vibe...the new one I mean, engine-wise. Having just played some of 'The Old Blood', it looked ripped right out of that...

So let me get this straight... you effectively believe that nVidia are the ones writing the setup routines for many games since they apparently have the magical sabotaging power to smuggle PhysX on AMD users' systems?

BWWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA aaaaaahhhhh *wipes tears of laughter from cheeks* oh man that was a good one.

Honestly, bro, are you retarded?

Honestly, 'bro', are you that fucking immature that you have to call names just to press a point? Wait, nevermind, I forgot who I was talking too... Sigh

AMD drivers are fine. I've had ATI/AMD since the 9800Pro-era (9800Pro, 9800AiW, X850 Pro, HD2400Pro, HD4870/1gb, HD5770/1gb, and now a HD7850/1gb) and while some drivers over TEN YEARS ago were problems, that issue hasn't been valid since. I love how some companies can continually screw up and get pass after pass for it while another has problems just once and it brands them for life. The only ones that bring up ten year old driver issues are ones that are uninformed and clueless. And it's obvious that most that brought the issue up here then turned around and said they didn't buy or use AMD cards. Well, gee, that sure makes you an expert on said product, huh? You'd never see me in here railing against Nvidia's SLI performance (or lack of) in certain games because while I hear such things, I can't confirm them. You guys know better. The real question is why they decided to bake in PhysX when they knew it was going to be on nextgen consoles, which are AMD-based?! That makes no sense whatsoever to me...then again, I don't have all the facts, so I can only speculate...

C'mon now, it's not like we've been in the dark ages when it comes to single-player space combat games/sims. I mean, the pickins' have been slim, yes, but not non-existent. There's been several narrative based games out since X-wing and Wing Commander (not including the already mentioned Freespace series), there's:

Tachyon: The Fringe
Darkstar One
Starlancer
Freelancer
Elite 2 and 3
(well you did go back to X-wing and both of them were released after)
Battlecruiser 3000AD series and it's hellspawn (*ahem*)
I-War 1 and 2
StarFleet Academy and Klingon Academy
Bridge Commander
Star Trek: Legacy

Nomad (little known but still kick ass)
Star Crusader (ditto)
Renegade: Battle For Jacob's Star
Star Rangers
Absolute Zero
Darklight Conflict
Colony Wars
(for the PS1, totally awesome series!)
StarPoint Gemini 1 and 2
Strike Suit Zero
(mentioned already)
X series (X: BTF, X2, X3: Reunion, X3: Terran Conflict, X3: Albion Prelude, X: Rebirth)
Evochron Mercenary
Archon Alliance
Vendetta Online
(MMO)
Jumpgate (MMO closed)

And I'm sure I could think of at least 10 more from DOS all the way to recently if I wasn't tired as hell...

Acceleration and braking would be the main two I think. Both are somewhat controlled digitally now, rather than using actual mechanical linkages.

Well, in a sense. The acceleration is partially monitored and controlled for the fuel flow/fuel injection and the brakes for fail-safes and ABS, unless you have a 'fancy' new car with all those smantzy tablets and gizmos and whatchamacallits. (Seriously, Google, 'whatchamacallits' doesn't get flagged for a spelling error?! Did I miss something?! That's considered an actual word now?) I'm not sure what high tech stuff they got on the cars now but before 2003 (which is the year of my Focus...yeah, yeah, I know, at least it ain't a Prius! ) it was just basically that*... oh, and cruise control...

If you want in-depth stuff you can't get on the evening news (or more of the stuff that they gloss over) I suggest checking out VICE on Youtube. They're everywhere and while they had a brief time a year or so ago where they were doing stupid crap, they've gotten back to that eye-opening reporting from places like Ukraine and Africa. But also stuff like rental forfeiture in Arkansas, stuff you would never even think of. It's really good...I love John (and Jon, for that matter) and I hope this show goes for a long time. I'm not too crazy about Jon (Stewart)'s replacement. I don't know him. I'll give him a chance, but Jon is one-in-a-million. Gonna be hard to replace someone like him...

Rigs, why would you consider apologizing unless you didn't mean what you said? I meant every word I said to you and don't feel sorry about it at all.

If I have to explain to you why someone would feel bad for something they said to someone in anger...then everything I said about you not giving a damn about others feelings is right on the mark...

And I think the IGNORE function is broken. I still see Krovven's posts...ah, whatever.

Yeah, if you turn off v-sync, you'll get way better mouse response. But you might have to restart after turning it off for it to be effective. That's what happened to me. I messed with it for like five minutes and then restarted and it was a lot better. >Raw Input< helps too. Having it on >Windows< was like playing it at 2fps.

There's only a few things I'm going to say and then I'm done with this discussion. It's gone way further than I had intended. I figured once Blue posted, the argument would have died right there but to my surprise, Krovven kept pushing it. I really don't understand what your problem is, Krovven. Whether it's a need for attention, you feel like you're defending yourself from being wrongly persecuted, you're just the kind of individual that really doesn't give a damn about other's feelings, or you truly feel that you're superior to other people? I can't understand how you feel that it's justified to call someone stupid when they ask a question, no matter how simple or trivial. I've been through your post history. You're not a stupid person. But it's readily apparent to me that you have a serious lack of empathy. You even proved that again by posting here, in public, what someone had said to you in private. That's inexcusable. You give no respect yet you expect it from others.

As for Blue not treating you fairly, well, he can do that. He can do whatever he wants. It's his site. His prerogative. We're all here with his blessing. He could end all of this with a flick of a switch. Personally, I'm glad he puts up with us as much as he does. I know I wouldn't. Maybe he sees the same thing I do, your lack of compassion, respect and maturity. I don't know, I'm not him.

And for the record, I had every intention, even after everything that's been said, to apologize for calling you a douche when I came back in here today. (Really, I had said you were acting like a douche, not that you were one, but that's semantics) I was going to be the better man and 'man up'. (I really, really hate that term...bro! Rolleyes ) But when I saw that you had not only posted stuff from a private message but then turned around and ridiculed him for it?! Forget it. You don't deserve an apology. And I'll stand by that. You don't. That's over the line. You have no respect for anyone and you certainly don't deserve any and I can't see how Quinn can defend you. If everyone was 'ganging up' on you here, it's for good reason and that proved it!

I'm done with this. Don't bother responding, Krovven, because I won't hear it. You're on ignore for real now. Or do. At this point, I don't care. You pushed it from me wanting to work this whole thing out and maybe get you to see why I said what I did (and hesitating filtering you out completely), to now, where you don't deserve to waste any more of my time.

I haven't read the post yet but back when ME3 came out, I said that a Freespace2-style space-combat sim based on the final stand at Earth would kick so much ass and take so many names, it'd need it's own wiki! I mean, picture an engrossing, full-immersive Oculus-ready EliteDangerous/Star Citizen type sim with battles like that last one in ME3 and I would gladly hand over a year's salary!...ok, maybe not a year, I do have to eat and if I lose my house I'd need gas for my car/bed...but holy shit, KICKSTART that, pronto, yo! Nod

Not to excuse anything that was said afterwards, but it is factual that you targeted Krovven first.

Actually, I kinda didn't. We quarreled a while ago and this was really an extension of that. I have no problem with his posts except for the snide remarks he makes at the end of them when someone does something or has an opinion he doesn't agree with. I mean, disagree, fine. But you don't have to put them down and make them feel stupid for even posting. He's done it a number of times and I felt it was time someone called him out on it. I don't go around doing that. Most respectable posters here don't do that. Trolls do that. Children that want attention do that.

And then you weirdly said, "None of my posts about those topics involved you in any way." in response to "Except I wasn't even speaking to you" which was in response to you mentioning him.

I was referring to this first comment:
Krovven wrote on Apr 14, 2015, 22:13:
And you rub me the wrong way with your childish rants about the delay, your posts about piracy and your general retardedness on the matter.

...not the second part. I know he wasn't initially talking to or about me, the reason I said something was his nasty remark to 'DangerDog':

Krovven wrote on Apr 13, 2015, 23:17:
There is an FoV slider in the options. But I guess it's easier to be stupid or jump to conclusions than look for yourself.

So, yes, in this instance, I started it, but as I said it was really an extension of our previous argument and him being a total jerk for no reason lately...not to mention his disrespectful and immature responses to me...
