It’s under System Preferences > Energy Saver.
Not all macs have the option, the older models have an option to manually switch the video card in Energy Saver which requires a log off, the newer models do it on the fly.
Looks like the [Debug] error happens as soon as I click play on the welcome screen, doesn’t seem to cause an issue though.
The freezing problem appears to be caused by “automatic graphic switching” turning it off makes the issue go away, I only had one freeze on the Blame Canada server with this turned off and I played for about an hour on the main and beginner servers without issue.
new thread for freezing issue
It was when any dialogue box popped up like the MoTD/Rules page when joining a server, or the Banned uniqueid/suid dialogue came up.
I found turning on “no cube map” and “no sphere map” fixed the problem.
Should we move this to another thread? Just to keep things tidy.
Anyways, it seems to be working now 🙂
thanks a lot 😀
Now I just have to post somewhere (maybe in the bug track) all the freezing problems I’m having (whenever a person dies funky I think) and the problems with the keyboard 😉
Mine freezes too, everytime a message box pops up, but thats a topic for another thread
Thank you so much, that did the trick.
I did see that snippet of code and didn’t think it looked quite right but hadn’t had a chance to look into it further, not that my C is very good.
Done, i have tried both Beginners and Main
will log in now
Thanks Gavin that would be awesome :D/
I was thinking it could be a bug, but haven’t had a chance to look further in to it.
Any chance your using Parallels? Wondering if there is an issue here.
The reason I ask about Parallels is from what i’ve read part of the suid is made up from the MAC address of the primary NIC and if I had to take a guess i’d say the MAC used by Parallels is the same for most users.
As far a I can tell the suid doesn’t use the client ip, rather the server’s ip.
edit: I’m not trying to play inside Parallels, although that does work too.
Thanks for looking and such a prompt response.
It’s a shame I won’t be able to play while traveling
I usually just play as Brad (Player ID 42934)
I haven’t played in probably 3 months, any other names were at least 12 months ago and were just some variation of Brad.
My machine is only 1 month old with no previous owner.
Thanks Thrax, do you need any further information to identify my machine?
