  1. Well... I think I found something naughty. Yes I was crashing over temperature, soooo.. I disabled bios and software over temp settings and let her run. I use open hardware monitor for all my numbers. I compared my PoE numbers to Skyrim, modded with higher textures and frostfall so it has way more cpu/gpu demand than just vanilla skyrim. And here is what I found. I ran both in windowed mode 1400x900 so I could watch my hardware monitor in real time while playing. I ran skyrim for 30 minutes or so , running jumping, fighting, talking, transitioning, etc, all in 3rd person view which is
  2. Well I have determined the reason for the power down, the Cpu is hitting 90C which is my manual setting for high temp shutdown... but... this thing runs under 65C after 10 hours of modded Skyrim so something seems odd. I know 6000+'s run hot, but this is an open tower which literally has a little 6K Btu A/C unit which blows 65F cool air into it every second that it is on, so in order for this to hit 90C is kind of implying that this game and that CPu don't play nice together. The 4000+ I had overclocked to 2.9-3.1 range and it never hit 65C running the v278 beta for hours and hours, this thing

  4. Hey OTB, Shrink your window and look in the blue top panel of the window itself, it should read pillars of eternity.(which is the name of the window), in upper left corner. When you transition an area if you are getting the hangs, right after "pillars of eternity", in (parentheses) it will say "not responding". like this... Pillars of Eternity (not responding) The not responding will blink on for a few seconds, then off for a few seconds (indicating it has moved forward), then back on for a few seconds (indicating it is hung) then back off again and the new area will load.
  5. maybe someone wants to try this to see if it is hardware specific to my machine or the code... 1 launch a game in window mode 2 shrink your window so you can see the upper left corner where it says Pillars of Eternity 3 go to the inn and enter it 4 leave the inn and watch where it says pillars of eternity 5 see if it changes like this every time Pillars of Eternity Pillars of eternity (not responding) Pillars of eternity Pillars of eternity (not responding) then the outdoors room loads every indoors to outdoors transition does this without exception on my rig. NEVER a i
  6. I can see different spells of similar nature stacking from the same caster,(multiple stamina replenishes etc..) or the same spell w/2 different casters, say two priests consecrate same ground stacks, but the same priest consecrating the same ground repeatedly, effectively negating stamina in combat completely seems to me like this is not what would be intended.
  7. uh.. I had read those links and my format is precisely that minus the step #1, step #2 preceding each line, figured that was just unnecessary key strokes... Reads line by line like a play by play. but if anyone responds that any info on how to cause or stop the inventory drops is still useful I will take the time to edit each post into a longer easier to understand version. Like I said above no need to waste time. And I did of course read the known issues hence I posted all this. known issue does not mean solved issue. Saying I saw the bug over and over makes it known, no need to keep say
  8. I just noticed my custom SetZoomRange settings remained through the uninstall download and reinstall process... How is that possible, and what other files remain, and how do I clear them to insure I can get a fresh new installation?
  9. From 11:30 this morning until about 30 min ago I have done nothing but restart the game in windowed mode various sizes, all difficulties and as many combinations of other settings and default characters races etc as I could. every single time first screen walk right to church, enter it, leave it, enter it and every single time without fault bb priest drops her shield in the floor. The only time ever I have seen no drops was that one window launch and the only thing remarkable about it was it was the first ever time I launched a window run of the game. so I uninstalled completely re-installe

  14. This is a lot of step by step that demonstrates the different ways to manifest this and my thoughts along the way as this process evolved. The crash files are attached, the one time stamped the latest is the crash described with in the steps, the others were generated before I started writing every step down. Sadly I cannot find any correlation between this and the endless loot in containers like the lions dead adventurer Launch .exe make new char step party out of spawn area save game quit game exit game launch game load save open inventory WTF BB Wiz and BB Priest shields never
