    Tonight. Target Aten Ha Ra raid. Server Bertoxx

    Random people are crashing, PCs locking up, etc. This is happening like five at a time every few minutes.

    From dbg.txt:

    [Tue Feb 22 21:21:33 2022]00899:Crash (char = Fanra, zone = vexthaltwo)
    [Tue Feb 22 21:21:33 2022]00900:Local Player's World location at time of crash: 22.057665, 1380.040771, 231.194489.
    [Tue Feb 22 21:21:33 2022]00901:Gamestate at crash = 5

    I can send the entire dbg.txt to Darkpaw if requested.

    This isn't just me but everyone in raid, a few every few minutes.

    You should try posting that in the bug forum.

    Yes. However, I wanted to see if this is common to everyone raiding, since most of my raid is getting this.

    Thats weird that we havent seen it. Not doubting you but I guess there must be something different going on between yours and our events. Id guess then that the server got gooped and started sending you funky data. Have you tried dropping the dz and restarting it?

    It was happening with the guild i raid with on Wednesday’s and fridays also on Friday night. Even when the event itself wasn’t active. Have not seen it during RoI raids though.

    PC as player characters or personal computers?
    Is it causing EQ to freeze so you open up task manager to close EQ then reopen it?
    The whole computer to seize to where you have to hard restart the whole computer?
    I only ask for clarification.
    Semantics are important when troubleshooting.

    Personal computers
    It might be different for others but for me EQ would freeze up, as in nothing was moving on screen and could not do anything. This would happen for maybe 20-30 seconds, then EQ would end and I would be back to desktop.
    The computer was fine and I could restart EQ. Then it would be fine until the next time it froze up.
    Yes, indeed.
