Mac OS X client hang isolated

Post by learner » Sun Jun 01, 2003 3:37 am

I believe we've isolated what is causing the OS X client hang! The hang is directly related to the Lighting and Blending Options. (perhaps only one of them, haven't tested independantly yet)

I've had those options off for months and *never* experienced the hang. Turned them on, and I was hanged within minutes!

I'd speculate that this is related to the freeze problems observed on other platforms that has been discussed elsewhere. Perhaps related to the text chatter that happens during gameplay. JB did catch that the problem is related to a display flush that never returns.

Several of the hangs I have observed, since I started watching for this, have all been preceeded by someone making a comment that included non-alphanumerics (punctuation, etc). This was inferred in the prior thread. Might be a lead, maybe not. Worth looking into, though.

Cheers!
