User pelleban posted in this topic GameplayMy pc just shuts down when I play this game. It happened after patch 0501. It only happens in wows and never before 0501. WG even stated in patch notes for 0502 that " Fixed an error causing increased load and temperature of the graphics card by the minimised game client when locking the computer (win + L)." Fixed a critical error for the owners of AMD graphics cards and the Windows XP operating system, causing the client to crash when switching to binoculars. There is a known bug within the game causing some overheat issue on the graphic card. I got AMD, radeon graphic card, not xp though lol. I will just stop playing the game until it gets sorted. Since the issue is with wows ONLY I highly doubt the problem is on my end, or the OP end..
" Fixed an error causing increased load and temperature of the graphics card by the minimised game client when locking the computer (win + L)." My pc randomly shuts down when playing this game since last patch. I don't minimize any client or anything, pc just shuts down. Only this game, nothing else, it all seems like an overheat issue. Hoping this fixes it cause I like the game.
