I recently updated my system to Windows 8, it was on a really cheap offer so I thought what the hell.. Anyway, I've recently picked up The Secret World again and I've never seen so many crashes to desktop. Is this normal now or is it having a problem with Windows 8? I'm currently in the second part of Egypt and it's crashing so much it's becoming unplayable.
A quick example: side quest to kill a bunch of sand golems then go in a cave and kill the guy controlling them. I walk into the area and crash to desktop. Reload, fight a few golems, when they break up they do this really crazy thing where they disperse into thousands of particles that slow my computer to a crawl. I get closer to the cave, crash to desktop. Log back in, find I've been killed while out, run back to corpse, approach the cave. Wait a minute so the golem can path around, crash to desktop, come back, find I've been killed again, run back to corpse, kill golem, enter cave, kill bad guy, crash to desktop, come back, find I'm dead from the respawn, hit jump to Agartha and get the hell out of there.
And that's not an exaggeration, that's exactly what happened. I came back later, near the dungeon quest giver, and did a little side quest. Ran up to a door with torches that I had to click on, crashed to desktop, figured the respawn would kill me so didn't even bother logging back in.
And that's how it's been since I've come back. Most of the problems seem to be coming from this Egypt area though as I've run around other places and it seems fine. What's going on?
