GhostSwordsman Posted November 4, 2014 Share Posted November 4, 2014 (edited) So, I'm putting this here mostly because it's a question that I don't think can be answered through the players helping players sub-forum, but if I'm wrong, feel free to move it. Before U15 dropped I think I only experienced one or two crashes total out of 8-9 months and 800-900 some hours of gameplay(according to steam). After U15 hit, I noticed my laptop was running at a much lower fps while in my liset, and recently I've experienced weird crashes where the game freezes up, I get a white or black screen that essentially locks out my desktop as well. What I mean is I can't alt-tab back into warframe (i run it with borderless full screen mode) to alt-f4 the program or access my task manager to kill the task due to the white or black screen. My processor is not locked up, as I have the freedom to open other programs on my taskbar or go to the start menu. In fact only once has my game crashed like this and I received the crash reporter. I already posted the war number from that here on the forums too after submitting the report. To elaborate a bit more, before U15 I could run warframe under DirectX11, as DX10 had a bit of a visual performance hit for some reason unknown to me. However, after U15 I had to swap to DX10 in order to get the performance I had before the update. I run warframe on low settings, save for medium texture memory, color correction, and fxaa anti-aliasing. I've been able to keep my game at the 48-72 fps I usually get, but I'm experiencing these crashes now that have not ever happened before. I just want to know if it's a hardware issue or if it's on the devs end of things. And I'm kind of hoping to catch a dev's attention here too. Here are my pc's specs: Windows 8.1 64-bit OS 4th gen intel i5 processor at 2.6 GHz (at turboboost, which is alway on) 4gb of DDR3 ram (planning to upgrade to 8 when I have the money) intel imbedded HD graphics 4400 500gb Hard drive Honestly, I haven't the slightest idea what would be causing these performance issues, since I've never had them before. The pc's only about a year old too. And although it's not a great bar for comparison, I can run skyrim on my laptop with these specs with the only issues coming from mods I've installed/uninstalled. I would argue that that game is much more taxing on the system than warframe is. Edit: oh, and if it helps, my pc is an ASUS Vivobook touchscreen laptop.
