Dragon Quest VIII freezes
#1
Hi,

I can run DQVIII (PAL) fine on my rig but I've a problem. Sometimes the game freezes. Not really a freeze cause I still can hear sounds but nothing happens on screen.

I can happens everywhere, interiors like exteriors. Sometimes I can play a couple of hours without any problem and sometimes after 10 min the game freezes.

My config :

i5 2500k @4.7Ghz
GTX 670 OC
8GB RAM

Running in Dx11, Allow 8 bits textures checked, HW hacks checked with WildArmsOffset and skipdrow on 1 (for shadows). Speedhacks are OFF (tested ON, nothing changes).

Any idea ?

Sounds like an unstable overclock. Try again with your CPU at stock setting and see if it still happens

What about your graphics card overclock? The fact the graphics stops but the game carries on tells me your gpu has stopped updating the screen. Can you lower the clocks on your 670 by say 50mhz on both gpu and mem and see if it still happens?

It's a Gigabyte GTX670 designed for OC and it comes already overclocked, I touched nothing on it. So I don't think it the problem, works fine on every games even those who are very GPU intensive.

My work colleague has a Gigabyte 550Ti OC and it constantly black screen/driver resets unless he lowers the clock. Just because it's been pre-overclocked, it doesn't mean it's stable. We are trying to find out what's wrong here, by flat out going "no that's not it!" without trying it makes finding the problem VERY difficult.

When problem happens, if I switch to windowed mode (I play full screen) PCSX2 crashes. So I don't think problem appears in logs.
