I think the game crashed my PC

Postby IforgotmypasswordHaHAA » 9 April 2021, 22:30

I am not sure if it's wether an issue in my hardware or the game, but 2 days ago I tried to play this game on mozilla firefox and when it started loading my PC crashed. What I experienced was basically the screen of my PC freezing and I couldn't even do a hard reset on the PC by pressing the reset button so I had to unplug the PC.

specs: i3-2120 quad core
8 GB RAM
no dedicated graphics card

Game is resource intense but what it does - just draws lots of textures on GPU.

It probably would not be able to do that in reasonably short time without GPU acceleration (not sure why Firefox even tries to do that and especially why it could freeze whole system). Browsers that lack GPU acceleration capability do try to draw everything using CPU which can be a complex task to do.

Reason why it could be freezing is CPU overheat and potentially flawed cooling. If I remember correctly, normally modern CPUs would throttle while old ones would instantly reboot if their temperature would go too high, though I do remember some CPUs simply freezing on overheat.

I believe same could happen with some other complex to process operations on your system, but usually it would only happen to specific user configurations rather than happening to everyone. I do also think that it can be best to avoid such applications and probably check if everything seems to be fine with your hardware and especially cooling.

I cleaned my PC a couple weeks ago. I used a software yesterday to check my CPU temperatures and was around 35 C when not using anything.

After shutting down my PC later that same day I opened firefox again and I was able to run the game normally.

Well so far I had my browser crash 3 times because of it. And yes I am sure it was the game.
How many bugs does this game have anyway? jeez

Normally browsers prevent that by crashing single browser tab instead of whole browser but I guess it can happen in some browsers that aren't tested on projects like this one.

Game itself doesn't do anything to crash browser other than having somewhat higher system requirements.

Should work best in Microsoft Edge, in some cases in Google Chrome too.

1 of the cases was in google chrome. It's one of those freezes where your browser freezes for a few seconds but at that one time it would not unfreeze. So I had to close the entire browser to fix it.
