Random screen freezing

Post by Jack4241 » Wed Mar 02, 2022 7:46 pm

Hey there,

I just started playing in the server and I noticed something weird, as Im questing, killing npc and such, my screen will freeze between 1-3 seconds randomly and I've not been ble to identify whats causing the issue.

I deleted the WDB folder as recomended, deactivated Hardware Cursor and Vsync, uninstalled all addons in case one was causing the problem, lowered the graphics to minimum (but, shouldnt bethe case as my pc is capable enough of runing wow classic on max) even re-downloaded the game entirely just to be sure, but, the screen freezing keeps happening.

Anyone has any idea how to fix this? I realy like playing here but its kind of anoying getting a screen and sound freeze every X seconds (Also, if I dare to alt-tab during a loading screen the game just crashes)

Thanks for reading

I think there is something broken on your end. I've never had this happen to me before. Not on this server, not on any other server.

Well that was totally unhelpful Allwynd01. It happens to me as well; so maybe not on our end at all?

Been looking into it and didn't to solve the problem yet, but, not a problem in my end, I can run other games way more demanding no issue. Only happens here, for the moment I just assume its going to happen until I have any idea why, it happens.

The only thing I can add its that it seems to get worse at the beginning of a dungeon, after a few minutes it doesn't happen that often, and that a temporary small fix seems to be deleting WDB, WTF and Interface and starting the game again, but it only last so long, maximum a day or so and then the fps drops happen again.

If I find any solution or something I'll write it here as soon as possible

I used to get such freezes a lot and eventually turned out to by that the game is on my HDD and not SDD and that causes 1 sec freezes in sublime moments... probably not your issue bot worth the try.

Same thing is happening with me and I have the game on a very fast SSD. Other wow clients (3.3.5 and up) are working just fine.

I am also seeing this issue. I've only been playing here a couple weeks but this is far from my first server on the 1.12.1 client.

I plan to check on my other PC if the same issue exists- I did run Deadmines on that PC the other day and cannot recall seeing this issue. However, on my primary Gaming Rig, I get these very brief 1-2sec freezes (almost like a lag spike) periodically. I would estimate this occurs maybe 1ce every couple min. Additionally, as noted in above post, if I 'alt+tab' while the client is loading it crashes (though this does not happen 100% of the time I can consistently trigger it while alt+tabing when load bar is on screen).

I've tired messing with the refresh rate, vsync options, hardware cursor, but the issue persists. I keep thinking I found the setting tweak that resolved it...then it will return. The odd thing is I don't recall noticing this the first few days I was playing on Turtle WoW...very weird.

Currently playing on a 1440p 144hz monitor (have tried setting monitor to 120hz via Nvidia panel).

Yea it is deff bugging me. I've been messing with settings last few days to try and fix it. Friday I'll be back at my other PC and will be interesting to know for certain if it occurs there as well...if not then there should be SOME edit I can do in game or on PC to fix.

I really feel like I was not seeing this issue the first few days I played (on this machine). I've not added any additional addons either--I suppose I could have just not noticed it but seems unlikely.
--I'm going to try and revert my Nvidia drive back 1 version and check that.

I have also started experiencing this problem After 15-20 minutes I start getting 1-0 fps, tried clearing WDB that is not the problem. It was working fine last week and I have changed nothing.

I've talked with some others in game. Certain places in the game seem to trigger this for different players. And it changes over time. For instance, the game predictably slows to 1-2 FPS when I enter Silverwind Refuge just north of Mystral Lake in Ashenvale. I have to exit the area, log out, and log back in for things to get to normal. This has only happened in the last few weeks; it was fine months ago when I was there on my other characters.
Talking with another player, he has the same issue when he goes to a specific part of Orgrimmar.
