Reduce Crashes, Lag, Disconects - Complete list of things you can do.

Post#1 » Fri Feb 17, 2017 8:52 am

This is a list of things you can adjust to reduce your crashes ingame at keeps.
Some points are proven, others are more of the esoteric kind, but the lads swear that they reduced crashes on their side.


Here are things you can do:

1. Don't allow players to join WB from a different zone. This will sometimes lead to a WB crash. (Currently fixed by a Server Patch as you cant invite across a zone.)

2. Don’t join Warbands who have someone with Scenario Queues in.
(Currently fixed by a Server Patch as you cant join the SC Queue when you are in a WB.)

3. Set graphics to fastest framerate. Also set the ‘Play ability effects on’ from ALL or Your Warband to YOU only. This can be done ingame with two clicks.

4. Install the 4gb ram 64Bit third party optimizer:
-4gb patcher http://www.ntcore.com/4gb_patch.php
It's a little program which used on war.exe ( and all other win xp era game such war40k dawn of war one ) will change the client memory from 2gb into 4gb actually make the loading faster and the time between the need to reopne the client seems improve x10. You need to use it on "war.exe" file just once. (taken from Tesqs Thread)

5. Reduce your open quest to less than 10 open quests at once.

6. Don't take the keep lord quest. Don't take the SC quests while participating in Keep attacks.

7. Remove quest items out of your quest item inventory slot. Especially the ones from broken quests.

8. Change shown player names from Styled to Standardized. <- This is the easiest step and reported to have a huge boost on framerate.

8b. Remove Names completely from showing. This increases your framerate drastically.

9. If you use nerfed buttons and get an error after exit/logout use the fix described here:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13977

10. Deactivate the addon WSCT

11. Clean your Warhammer Cache folder regularly.

12. Deactivate group icons of any kind. (Had the actual addon GroupIcons turned off on live and suddenly everything went drastically more smooth - one less overlay and check)

13. Deactivate Game DVR in your xbox app when using Windows 10. It lowers your framerate and is automatically turned on when installing win10. The xbox app can also be unistalled. You need to open the Powershell for it and then use the command here to uninstall the xbox app.

14. Deactivate ALL Addons that show you a critical error in the Addon List ingame.

15. Turn off ingame sounds. The client plays also the sounds of all nearby abilities and such. While this maybe a drastical step in an experience kind of way it will boost your fps.

16. DO NOT USE Guild scroll, Book of Binding, Altdorf Scroll or any Teleportation device while in a Warband. It can lead to a total warband crash to desktop for ALL warband members.

17. Change Virtual Swapping Size in Windows 7,8,10

When Windows changes the size of that filespace it may lead to a lag that disconects you. Setting it on a firm value reduce that risk.

If you follow the above steps you will reduce keep crashes A LOT. That was approved by several players. Alot thanks to the players who gathered the info and who arent named here in full credits. Thank you.

I deleted the files in the cache folder and could start them anew with no problems.

May I add some stuff that also improves the framerates/stabilzes the game?

Deactivate group icons of any kind. (Had the actual addon GroupIcons turned off on live and suddenly everything went drastically more smooth - one less overlay and check)

Deactivate Game DVR in your xbox app when using Windows 10. It lowers your framerate and is automatically turned on when installing win10.

Changing player names to standard works Really Well. It affects my lag more so than effects actually. Just that one change and I DC far less. Some DC should be expected. Alpha on a priv server and all that...

Thanks for the list though. I'll start directing people here.
