Was just curious if anyone could offer any suggestions as I'm about to submit a ticket. Every time I attempt to enter the city I get a stack dump as can be seen here:
Exception type: Access violation
Call stack (14 levels):
0x00000000
0x7C816FD7
0x008B4518
0x004592F7
0x00456128
0x00578F3E
0x00503D4F
0x00550EC4
0x00550586
0x00793FB0
0x00792CA4
0x00591669
0x00574625
0x0057050A
I'm currently using a Athlon 64 3500+, 1 gig of RAM, and a ATI AIW 9800 Pro with 128 MB of dedicated video memory. I also have shadows and Anti-Aliasing turned all the way down before anyone asks. Thanks in advance if anyone has any clues.

All I can say is that I stack-dumped once from Tokotah, and another time from Relto. Both were with the new version, and while playing through Gametap.

Before the last update, I never had a stack dump. Now, I get them somewhat randomly in the city. :(

I've filed a ticket on it, and I suggest you do the same, so they get better metrics on it.

From what I've seen in terms of other people's experiences, the new rash of stackdumps appears to be caused by glitched avatars. There's more about it in various threads in the bug forum.

I'm also getting call stack errors much more commonly than before the most recent update. I randomly crash in Delin, the Hoods, and the City almost every time I go on. I submitted a ticket as well.

The crashes are also giving me a nasty side effect. Various programs, such as GameTap and Quicktime, will either not work right or not work at all after about two crashes. I have to restart my computer to get them to work again.

This is really getting irritating. I hope Cyan hurries up with a fix. I miss my perfectly-working Uru. :(

I've just experienced a stack dumper right after the game loads (after the cyan logo)....but I've been having problems with gametap's servers being down just in the past 2 days. I've had no problems before Jan 23rd...

My avie is always partialy invisble and other players too and when I start to run it can start the Crash to desktop with the stack dump almost anywhere, Write tickets show the logs hope in the next fix build they get back on track

Linked into the city about 2 hours ago - only chat I could hear was one person talking about not being able to see someone's avatar name - then CTD with a stack dump.

Haven't been able to get back in since - stuck at Updating, Approximately 0 seconds remaining - just prior to the avatar selection screen.

I trust this is a temporary problem. :)

I guess part of the reason it annoys me so bad is that Cyan has spoiled me in the past. All the Myst games ran perfectly and if they didn't, critical patches were released very fast, usually only a few days later.

I understand that Cyan has a ton on their plate right now, but I'm starting to suffer from Uru withdrawl nine days later! :lol: I hope that this issue is their top priority right now, as I know I'm not alone in this call stack error mess! Just have to exercise some Myst-style patience I guess. :wink:

The update released yesterday has fixed the problem!! :D I've gone on several times for hours and not crashed, so I assume that's what they were fixing.

Awesome job Cyan! :D :D :D
