I have a new system and a fresh install, but since the last hotfix my system has crashed to desktop 3 times and crashed completely (blue screen of death) twice while playing MWO.

I alt-tab often, but believe there is a significant bug which was introduced in the previous patch.

Prior to patch, the system had never blue screened and had ctd twice over 1 month. Both incidents were after many hours of gameplay.

System info:
WIN10 Enterprise (latest version fully patched)
32 GB Ram
5700 XT GPU with latest drivers
3900X CPU
Samsung 970 pro M.2 NVME
MSI X570 MPG Gaming Edge


Reduced GPU speed by eliminating all overclocking
Minimal CPU overclocking, fps limited to 65 fps via MWO config
Ran MWO repair tool, nothing detected as corrupt
Disabled ICMP requests via windows firewall
reduced particles to 2nd highest from highest

I do have Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise on this system and can use it to do significant troubleshooting, if needed.


This has made me wonder if you could add a rejoin button from the MWO Portal to reduce rejoin time by about 40%. It would skip the initial add pop up and go directly to the rejoin of the game.

That your system is generating a BSOD, your system is not stable. The emergency patch was to correct the the stock mode only setting in Competition and to fix the Marauder Hitboxes.

Unknown on when you installed the OS on the new system but start with Windows Update. By default Windows 10 also updates drivers unless disabled (jump through some hoops there). There are 4 sections to the Windows Update: Features / Quality / Drivers / Others. Check the updates, review and uninstall the updates (or rollback the system if possible).

Also, are you on the Windows Insider Program? I keep forgetting to ask that.

Last Quality Update hit on 8-14-19 for most. And for Insiders, there were at least 1 Quality update that hit 8-20-19.

Also, would you post your dxdiag?

My game hasn't been crashing, however, in the past week maps are glitching (I'll be running straight down the road then all a sudden I'm running into a building) or some obstacle.

As well, even today, have lost server connection 3 times since 4 p.m. central, twice last night.

My net is good fast and no modem issues or network issues here.
