Crash after extended time in game

Recommended Posts

Title pretty much says it all. Sometimes I can be logged for 1 hour maybe a little more, other times the client crashes after 15 minutes or less after logging in to EL. Before it's asked, all my drivers are as up-to-date as possible and visible in my sig. Any and all help is appreciated, thanks in advance. Error log is as follows:

After searching around a bit I seem to have found, what I believe, to be the root of my issue. Plain and simple, I use an ATI graphics card :lurker: Turns out this "problem" has been around for some time and is an issue already brought to ATI by many other frustrated gamers. The issue lies within the "atioglxx.dll" file (the ATI OpenGL driver) and has been causing problems since Catalyst 6.5-6.6 and possibly before. Apparently the ATI dll file dislikes any game that needs/wants to "enable shiny water", meaning water reflections. Hopefully someone can find a workaround other than simply disabling this feature in any game that I, or any other ATI user for that matter, play. I figured I would post this here to let anyone else who is experiencing the same issue know what exactly is going on. If anyone else that uses and/or has used an ATI card knows of a way to fix it without turning off my lovely on screen water effects, please let me know.

 

*edit: spelling*

Thanks for letting us know. Maybe you can also post a link to the "official" bug report on ATI's site, if you found any? So that people can check there and see if/when it is fixed...

When you can point me in the direction that ATI hides their "official" bug reports, I will gladly post it here. Until then I hope this link to the AMD/ATI Developer forum dealing with the same ATIOGLXX.DLL issue will suffice.

Thanks a lot! I wonder if they (ATI) will ever reply, they don't seem in the habit of doing so.

I could not find an "official" report either when I looked while assisting another player. I had hoped you would have been more lucky than myself and found some sign that they are considering the problem... we will have to wait, it seems.

You're welcome Usl, no trouble at all. I have found the bug report site, which utilizes the Bugzilla program, linked with ATI's bug report page. Unfortunately when trying to search for "atioglxx.dll" there are 0 returned matches...imagine that. A simple Google search will show that this problem is rather common, it has been reported many times before, it mysteriously disappears in one release of ATI's drivers only to show up in another, and the fact that ATI has apparently ignored trying to fix it on a permanent basis up to this point. If one of the Moderators want's to link something in the FAQ's to this post, feel free to do so as it will probably save others time when dealing with a similar issue.
