I don't have the "not responding" problem here (I play full-screen, and monitor app hangs using SirReal's LCD plugin
). Instead, for me it causes a 1-3 second lag spike (which has disconnected me a few times before). My latency color always drops to red for a second when adding/loading levequest ingredients, then either jumps back up to yellow/green, or crits me for R0 (Admittedly, the d/c isn't very common, but has happened enough to notice a trend).
I don't remember having this issue with trading, but will keep an eye out next time.
I notice that it happens when I switch focus to a different application. I have XIV running max resolution windowed on my primary monitor and if I tab out or move the mouse cursor over to my secondary monitor and interact with anything there, when I go back to XIV it tends to starting doing the (Not Responding) dance and continues until I close the client and reload.
Come to think of it, didn't the FFXI client behave the same way, if you didn't use Windower that is (Not responding until it's the foreground app again)? Edited, Sep 18th 2010 7:24pm by Giblos
