    A soltion to reduce (stop) crashes

    My girlfriend and I love to play CK in Lan . But in the past verey savegame was broken till around 1100 with CTDs en masse.

    Last week I deframented my Paradox partition and this weekend we were playing again . In over 12 hours of playing time the host (me) had no CTDS
    and we play till 1150

    Maybe this will help some other who are complaining about massive CTDs

    Since this involves Lan play I will move this to the MP forum.

    Kurtbrian, you of all people should know the old rule: If you sticky it, nobody reads it.





    Anyway, as it is stickied here, you can also improve stability (especially if you don't have a super-computer) by renaming music and sfx floders to music_BACK and sfx_BACK. You'll lose all sounds and music, but game stability will improve a lot in MP
    I prefer the term differently rational.

    Noo, the coughs!!

    I really think that most of the performance problems are caused by some resource feeders and crappy configurations in the problem haver's system, as I think of my system as quite a stable one in MP, even though I have minimum level system in many ways (not too much RAM, minimum processor etc...).

    me of all people?
    are you implying I don't read stickies???

    since there are only a few sticky threads I thought I would put it up here for a while - hoping that regular users would try to defrag and see if the performance improves. If it does I'm spreading the word to th rest of the mp forums.

    most of it can be related to an unstable system. but sometimes the hardware combo that people have will cause the game to crash for no particular reason...

    just ask castellon (and his trusty sidekick, jpd) who handle the support forums

    LOL!

    No, I was refering to the fact that you (and the other moderators) seem to end up again and again to reply to the same questions, even though the the answer would be in the stickied thread above. Thus only one conclusion can be made: Sticky threads are not read
    I prefer the term differently rational.

    well yes, but then again its nice to be able to tell people that if you just looked around a bit the answer was right under your nose.

    Actually I've noticed the same thing too; whenever I defragment my HD all Paradox games crash less in general.

    Same here, And they run a lot smoother, When I first got CK It took a long time to save, now after I defragment it goes as fast as EU2

    <ex computer tech geek mode> One should, in general, defrag at least once a week (regardless of what the 'analyzer' tells you....do you trust MicroSoft on anything else? ) I do it at night, start it when I go to bed and close it when I get up. </ex computer tech geek mode>

    i defrag about once a month and I do recognize an improvement when I do, heck I was for 2 weeks running the most stable CK host in King's Emperors and Statesmen.

    Aside from defrag what would you suggest to improve stability?

    You didn't notice that the last post in this thread is almost 4 years old and that the thread itself (about deframing) was started 7 years ago ?
