Yea so pretty much the new patch has now made it so after every few minutes my screen will show a flash of a black line until I ultimately get a Green screen and the game crashes. At one time I had to actually reset my computer. Any one else on a g73jh asus or anyone at all getting this problem?

Asus G73J user here. Not that it helps your problem at the moment, but after I get off of work I will look into it. If I may ask, what drivers / settings do you currently use to run the game?

I've been using 1600x900, resolution buffer, No AA, Occlusion off, Depth off, High shadows, High texture detail and low for the other texture setting. My ati drivers are currenly updated, this only started happening after the latest patch. Thanks for the help.

Problems here too since patch, was playing without crashes and nowi crash every 10 minutes (almost exactly). Graphics start to freeze for a second, then weird polygons popping and green polygons appearing. Mobs/players start to dissapear although they can be seen as yellow dots on map and i can hear them fighting next to me.

No, it's not overheating, i checked with my Hardware monitor and i run the GPU at 56C and mainboard at 48C.

Mainboard EVGA 680i SLI, EVGA GTX 460 SC, 8GB RAM, Win7 64Bit.

This is the exact same issue I was having. Not on my G73 [though I have one] but on my DESKTOP.

It acts very similarly to an overheat, some kind of grahpical distortion, freeze, then a solid screen and [in my case] an error message. For me, turning AA down to 4x from 8x and disabling depth of field got rid of it.

I'm thinking it's some kind of memory hole, though I'm by no means a programmer. Rest assured it is a software issue, not a hardware one.

No, it's not overheating, i checked with my Hardware monitor and i run the GPU at 56C and mainboard at 48C.

what kind of miracle G73 do *YOU* have??? Mine *IDLES* at 56c. Runs the game about 90-93c

Green screens, graphics going wonky, and black lines shooting all over with polygon weirdness are textbook examples of your video card dying. I would do as seneleron suggested and turn down your video settings in the meantime. There have been quite a few recent games where a certain patch caused specific cards to start dying, and you shouldn't take the risk. Even if your video card isn't reporting that it's overheated, pretend that it is, and tone down your settings appropriately.

Just did the test again, I run at 1920x1080 Windowed mode, 2xAA rest on standard or high, no AmbientOc. and the GPU was at 66C stable then it crashed with the famous "unable to detect Direct x device" error.

As to what kind of card i have, EVGA that is even Superclocked but their cooling is great and my LianLi Case also has a seperate cooler for the PCI-X slots (above them sucking air out through the back). The whole case has a really good heat flow.
