I was finding I was crashing a lot - I was trying to track down which app, change BIOS settings, etc and when I thought I had it I still crashed - I lost patience and just did a re-install of windows - took a couple of hours to do the re-install and get key apps and games re-downloaded, however it seems to have fixed the problem - worth a try if you have tried everything else ?!?!?
im rather sure its on your end, may be some windows issue or something with hardware, may be provider issue to (friend had provider with routing table going from EU to UK through USA 2000+ ping)
Try traceroute to amazon servers.
My doughter once fought with my optic fiber (signal quality dropped by 80%).
If you have 2 range wifi (2,4GHz & 5GHz) or posibility to use cable try it (windows 11 can do some crazy shit with drivers, i got dc every ~10 mins on 5GHz until driver reinstall)
You can try ping -t server and your router to see if it drop packets.
Anyway im 100% sure you have not do everything on your side to be sure its not there as to diagnoze such thing take hours, sometimes days + extra hardware & software
Different apps have different network usages and different tolerances to packet losses so that one thing is working ok not mean everything will
yea thats like 30 ppls on like milions players, now find what they have in common in their setup
Sounds like an issue with your specific system. Try upgrading your RAM, could be that the game is running out of it. Try lowering the settings, check if nothing is overheating, update your drivers, etc. There are like a million different reasons it could be crashing.
Another thing you could do is check your RAM for damaged sectors. I had 4 4GB sticks back in the day and some more demanding games would crash at a more or less specific time after launch. I ran diagnostics and turned one memory module was damaged, which explains why games were crashing after playing for a while - RAM was probably filling up, game was getting to the point of writing to the bad sectors, not being able to do so and simply crashing.
The game could use further optimizations of course, not saying that is perfect but I never had a single crash in Lost Ark, and that includes the RU version as well.
So it’s either software, like operating system, configuration settings or is hardware related. Happens when weak hardware is pushed to limits, like the mainboard power delivery (just search mainboard related terms like “10-phases at 50A versus the others running 6-phase at 50A” to see that one mainboard vs. the other can be and IT IS vastly different; and then comes power source quality, GPU build quality and how far is pushed to get those numbers, while likely sacrificing stability and making it more prone to crash than another GPU from another manufacturer)
I know pointing out that it’s hardware related sounds harsh, and that includes hardware firmware as well (for example mainboard BIOS) which rarely if ever is fixed, they rather expect you buy a new one – but it’s very true: many crashes are hardware related and not just software, because they just can’t handle the stress. In most cases the user can’t do anything about it, just buy another, trying to be smarter next time in picking something that isn’t pushed to limits to win the review charts but instead adjusted to be slower, steady and safe. Good luck with finding such products, they rarely exist, and expect to be premium priced.
I just switched to a Ryzen 5 5600X that I built myself and had to go through all that market research for mainboards, and it’s really a hell, so many lies about the power delivery parts for example. Luckily I ended up with a stable system, I underclock everything and never allow to be used at 100% capacity, to avoid system instability.
This is the same WIn10 install as before, just hardware changed and it’s drivers, and have no crashes where I had with the old system. It’s sad, because we can’t just change hardware easily, but when others don’t crash and we do, than most likely is hardware as well.
anyway we can make many assumptions or tests of all kinds we can say that 6700k is the problem (even if not entirely) lost ark runs on UE3 and was created on dx9 and run on toasters pc I don’t think my cpu is that bad, that limits the gpu but I turn in 2k and this helps, the cores are never at 100% of use.
i played on heavier games like new world or CP without any problem, then I repeat i played the same game in RU for 3 weeks and i didn’t get this, so i think besides the fact of the servers that are saturated, our amazon to other problems to deal with.
Just another suggestion for things to check. Check your power supply. Does it supply enough wattage for all of your components? It could be degraded performance due to a power supply that is on its way out of this material world.
I’ve run Lost Ark on an older computer with lower settings and it has been ok, although it does stutter at times. I know New World caused issues with 3000 series cards, so it might be that issue resurfacing. Do you have an old card laying around? Might be worth throwing it in if you do.
it seems i found a solution to windows criticality check ‘services.msc’ i discovered the error code which is the following 0xC0000022 it appears to be attributed to the Microsoft Visual C ++ Redistributable.
