Blue screen errors

Hi all,

Re-downloaded Arcadia last night and i've had blue screen errors reboot my machine three times within about an hour and a half of gameplay.

Is this common and is there a known fix?
I'll get started on trying to resolve the issue on my end but just wanted to see if other people had had similar experiences.
 
It's not common from Arcadia

BSOD is usually a hardware or driver issue. Since Mir pushes 1 core quite hard, I'd first guess you have a CPU overheating.. or unstable overclock.. but could be anything. There's better places than this to get help on that as that's about as much as I know :)
 
In fairness, the last few games I’ve played have ran at much less FPS than I would expect, so it may infact be my hardware.

Thanks for confirming it’s not an Arcadia problem.
 
Re-installed Windows, still having the same issue.
I can sometimes play Arcadia for an hour or two without issues, but all of a sudden I will get a blue screen issue.
Tested other games that I would assume are far more power hungry, but they seem fine.

Really strange.

Do you have another HDD installed in ur comp? If u have try installing there and see how it performs.
For my case before (not blue screen of death tho), i have a normal HDD which i installed mir to, every time during play time it will freeze the whole screen for a good 30 sec to 1 minute+, which caused death ingame a lot of time if hunting, i cannot predict when it will occur, just once every time when i log into mir and at random time

After having enough of that nonsense, i installed it to another drive of mine, which is a SSD, which performs fine to date..
Sometimes there's something happening to our drive that we cannot explain, and this happens particularly when only playing mir, weird but true
 
From what I understand BSOD is due to communication issues between Windows and hardware. While some software might trigger the BSOD it is fundamentally up to Windows to handle what is otherwise a reasonable request. If there is an issue then it is either an issue with the drivers or a faulty component which doesn't like to be doing certain things.

You could try something like Prime95 and see if any particular tests cause a BSOD..

They are a bit of a nightmare to solve

Yeah i've tried moving the files onto another hard drive and running from there. No joy unfortunately.

Prime95 running for over two hours but no issues as of yet.

The only thing other thing I can think could be an issue is if my computer is missing an old framework or something that Mir is expecting to use. I'm not sure if Mir would even load in the first place though if that was the case.
