In Topic: Authenticator

19 April 2015 - 01:37 AM

Generally second-factor authenticators like this have to be "synced" to your account, so the authenticator on your iPhone was the only one that could validate a login on your account. The whole point is that only the person with physical access to your phone can access your account.

I don't use the authenticator in GW2, but I did for World of Warcraft and I have done the same thing at least twice. Blizzard was ready and quick to respond, but unfortunately Arenanet may not be. It's probably a simple thing to fix, once they get to it, but you will likely just have to wait.

Be prepared for them to need you to verify your identity. Blizzard needed me to take a photograph of a photo ID.

Like I said earlier the main culprit should be the CPU. It is just too weak.

A slow CPU will make the game pretty unenjoyable, but it should "work" fine. Crashing like this indicates there's an actual problem somewhere. As I said above, the Athlon II X2 250 exceeds the minimum requirements, ever so slightly.

You have extremely low memory. And your CPU is old. I am quite certain that new compiled code may not be backward compatible to MMX instruction set that was introduced back in 1997.

I'm not sure when the Athlon II X2 250 was actually released, but it was reviewed in 2009:

It's very low-end and slow by 2015 standards, but not 1997-slow. Not only is it compatible, it's newer and a bit faster than the Athlon 64 X2's listed as the minimum for the game.

My Core i5 has the MMX instruction set too. I think everything does.

Agreed that a new PC is justified in this case, though.

For everytime I have played this game in the past, I had this problem too, but it just seems that it's gradually getting worse and worse overtime. :-( :-(

Has the game ever been reinstalled in that time? Try running the game with the -repair command. Instructions are at the top of this article. A possible issue, especially with older installations, is that the game's files can become corrupted or misplaced with updates.

But I don't know if that's the cause of this because those sorts of issues don't typically cause your entire system to crash and require a manual restart. That sounds hardware-related. :unsure: Definitely take a look at updating drivers and monitoring temperatures as well.

As far as I know, updating DirectX would take a major re-write of GW2's code - GW2 is still Dx9. Maybe GW3 will utilize Dx12. :)

Yeah, it'd be nice, but I'm not going to hold my breath. I'm sure they prioritize just about everything above this, for better or worse.
