Out of the Blue

I doubt anyone can help me with this, but it's worth a shot. My Discord client crashes a lot. And by a lot, I mean constantly. Dozens of times a day, and sometimes five times in 30 seconds. My repeated troubleshooting efforts have gotten me nowhere. Following tips online I've deleted the app and manually removed its data a dozen times or more, turned off hardware acceleration, and run it as administrator. But it still just quits repeatedly. It does not give an error message and leaves no trace in the Event Viewer. Lots of users seem to have to deal with one-off issues, but I can't seem to find references to anyone else having a chronic problem like this. As I say, I'm not sure what I'm hoping for, but if anyone has a suggestion on how to troubleshoot an app misbehaving this badly, I'd sure appreciate hearing it.

For what it's worth, I installed the x64 version of Discord right over my old install no issues.

Prez,
I'm playing Elden Ring.
(With the Nexus First Person Soul Mod, as a FPS shooter:
Astrologer class with high intelligence for powerful offensive ranged sorceries with Staffs.
Sorceries are more powerful and faster to cast than the rather supportive incantations of the Prophet class, etc.
More of that later.)

- First, you can use the excellent Fling Trainer, useful for any class, can turn you into a demigod.
Download the standalone "Elden.Ring.v1.02-v1.10.Plus.34.Trainer-FLiNG.zip" from flingtrainer.com
(5000 health, 5000 FP or Focus Points aka mana, how many spells or abilities or incantations you can cast before running out of mana.
Faith, infinite items use, etc., even fly !)


--- For using trainers or cheat engine you need to disable the game AntiCheat, just launch the game using "Anti-cheat toggler and offline launcher" from Nexus mods.
https://www.nexusmods.com/eldenring/mods/90

Unzip contents to the \Elden Ring\Game folder, where "eldenring.exe" is.

Run "toggle_anti_cheat.exe" to toggle on-off the anticheat.
Or directly run the game from "start_game_in_offline_mode.exe"

Better run these exes directly from their folder and not from an icon on the desktop.
(Nothing serious, they simply may fail to run from desktop.
If that happens kill the failed process from task manager, if necessary that is).

--- If you want to play in 1st person use "First Person Souls Mod"
https://www.nexusmods.com/eldenring/mods/3266

Just 3 little files, one is the exe to launch the game (in that case first use the Toggle anticheat exe to set anticheat off from the above mod).

Then run "launch_elden_ring_erfps.exe" from this folder, *not* an icon on desktop.
You can toggle 1st or 3rd person view, better select 80 FOV in the game usual menu (camera icon).

Doesn't affect the saves or the game files at all.
Don't like it ? Launch the game from the normal exe.
Delete or move the 3 little files, the game is unaffected in any way.

--- Any doubts ?
Ask away, though now I'm going to sleep.
Sorry, made an allnighter of my 1st run and I'm destroyed.

I'm assuming that all-nighter was because you liked the game and not because I compelled you with my voodoo magic. But thanks. I appreciate it very much

I run Discord on a bunch of games and never had it crash that I can remember.
On a side note, I cannot imagine how difficult it is to write for the PC platform these days, there are so many variations of tech inside them that it would be impossible to test even a tenth of them.
Hope your 64 bit version is the solution Blue.

The friends that I game with started using Discord for some reason. Most of the games we play have in-game VOIP. If not, Steam worked fine, but for some reason they decided we need more bloat installed. I don't like it. I don't trust it. You know what they say about free shit; if you're not paying for it, you're not a customer, your the product. They'll leave it running 24/7, but I only launch it when we're using it and shut it down when done. Quite often after shutting it down, I'll hear my CPU fans kick in when the PC is idle. I look and find a couple of discord processes still running and doing who knows what. I don't recall it ever crashing on me though.

You can always just use Discord through a web browser, rather than the app.

One unexpected thing to check is your connection to the internet. Especially if you have ethernet. That caused all sorts of constant problems with Discord a while back. Until I unplugged my cable and re-inserted it. It was confusing because I had zero problems with anything else.

Prez,

Never touched Elden Ring as the DLC arrives in June.
But ... no time like the present

Installing right now.
Will get tables, trainers, mods, and will apply my own shit, of course.
(Never fear, nothing will affect the DLC).

And man, this is just a possibility of exchanging some info.
If you find it useful, fine, if not no problem, to each his thing

Will comment tomorrow, have good night !

RIP Joe! SCTV was huge in Canada in the 80s. I used to watch it religiously. They were all immensely talented and funny people. John Candy was always my fave of the bunch - and I still miss him dearly - but all the rest were a very close #2. Joe's Count Floyd was awesome. But him and Eugene Levy as Bobby Bittman and Sammy Maudlin were always a riot. He'll be missed.

And we were talking about appliances 2 weeks ago? And who did I rail against as making shit consumer products? LG. Hope they sue them out of business.

I don't want anything that is going to break with game updates, since Elden Ring is getting a DLC at some point soon. That's the game I am currently trying to play. The world is spectacular, breathtaking in places.

Hi Prez !,

As usual RedEye9 razor sharp mind comes to assist (thanks as always man !).

Choose a game you have to play.
I'll install it and send you details of what to do.

You can even send me a save and I'll return an avenger

-------------------
Yep, Flingtrainer.com (beware of similar named sites, don't go there).
Use his standalone trainers, not the autoupdate ones.

Also ready made cheatengine trainers like this one for Dark Souls III:
github.com/igromanru/Dark-Souls-III-Cheat-Engine-Guide/
releases/download/1.2.4/DS3_v1.2.4_2020.zip

Also fearlessrevolution.com has tables -free or paid, will never pay!- .

The problem is if the game was updated and a table stopped working (same as a fling or any trainer !) till it is updated, if ever.
- So, a pro table works for all the game.

-Disadvantage, tables can stop working with game updates, and you hope they will be updated too, but that mostly happens with famous games.
A whole lot of games never get a trainer or table at all, or a durable one.
------------------
That's were it's a new gaming world when you learn to make or update your tables.
No game is safe and I use easy methods that don't require any coding.
- Disadvantage, my tables aren't automatic -that requires pro coding-.
Means you have to refind addresses quiting, in new areas, even after dying or reloading.
Saved items or maxed health, stamina, etc are kept throughout the game.
I usually max the health, etc to the cap, or if allowed to ridiculous high values which stay.

- Advantage, they continue working with any game update.
-----------------
Now, for example, Lies of P, which I loved and finished *easily* as a god this february, what a game !
(I played it as a FIRST PERSON SHOOTER with a Nexus mod -using Electric Cells = bombs as my ammo, heh)
I go beyond what most trainers offer, creating solutions to challenges as they appear.

--- Lies of P, example :
Easy for anyone, a couple minutes to find


- When you get the "Throwing Cell" (a terrific electric bomb), search "First Scan" for Exact Value, 4 Bytes, the number of them you have.
- Throw one, now search "Next" for the decreased number of them you have left.
- Repeat that till you get an address, and replace the number of them with 9999 or 99999.

You now have enough bombs to distance kill anything in the rest of the game.

The same mechanic can be applied to all items in the game.

***** ESCAPE, FACE ICON: detail of Health, Stamina, etc. with values !!!
-- !!!!! Stamina Green Bar -easy to find-, 4 Bytes, 109 full bar initial -you later will upgrade it for a higher value-, sprint a little so the bar goes down, pause the game, if there is no pause, put speedhack to 0.3, find the decreaseed value (a number or just Decreased Value), repeat, once found, freeze (tick little square).
Once frozen it can go down a little but no more, then stays there or goes up again = infinite stamina.

(HEALTH address hex = address Stamina minus "30")
Beware, Health, Stamina and a few volatile things will have their address changed in new areas, find again, useful for the whole new area.

-- Health Red Bar, 4 Bytes, Exact, 283 full initial, CHANGES ON HURT.
Can go lower a little but no more.
-- Legion, 4 Bytes, 205 initial. Address STAMINA + hex "90", CHANGES ON KILLS.
-- Sword Durability, 4 Bytes, Escape: click on sword photo to see value.
-- And 40 etcs. Everything is 4 Bytes.

** JUMP: SPRINT, RELEASE AND QUICK PRESS AND HOLD SPACE AGAIN
** YOU CAN SPRINT UP *AND DOWN!!!* STAIRS TOO !!!!!!!!
** ARCHE ABBEY DOOR GUARD: ATTACK HIS LEFT LEG, WHEN HE FALLS ATTACK HIS HEAD.
