Game crashing during sPvP
Posted 19 December 2012 - 06:49 PM
i'll be playing some matches, and all of a sudden my audio cuts off except for this droning noise. i really don't know how to describe the noise, but i can still control my character for about another 10 seconds while the noise drones on. and then the game will crash. i have no idea what's causing this. i haven't changed anything on my computer, i haven't changed any GW2 settings....nothing at all is different. it's just doing this after i play matches for a while.
after the first time it did this and crashed, i started exiting the game before it would crash (it's probably done this 4-5 times total now). exiting the game prevents the crash, but then i have to DL something whenever i start the launcher. idk if the game is fixing itself or what, but the DL usually takes about 10 seconds.
any idea what this could be?

From the same thread:
It's the client folks. Tested across thousands of computers, the official forums have a thread about 1,500 miles long regarding this well known bug. It's the client, you can't fix it without a total client restart. Happens when there are too many audio sources triggering at the same time.
When I was still playing I used to get this error too. Lowering the audio quality to one notch below maximum solved the problem for me without resulting in any discernible loss of quality.
