Windows 8.1 crashing after closing the game
Now I need to run all the utilities to see what potential damage Blizzard's shoddy programming has done.
08/06/2014 11:25 PMPosted by BananagabSince the new patch today,
My whole computer crashes everytime I close Hearthstone. Am I the only one having this bug?
i am on windows 8.1 and it crashes my windows too. yesterday it happened and today it just happened.
i exit the game and everything is just frozen, something pops up about something not responding it says end task or cancel? something like that but nothing helps i just end up having to restart my computer.
Since the patch, that process spikes to heightened CPU use after closing Hearthstone.
I don't know if that will help the Blizzologists any...
That said, the fix of running the game in Win 7 Compatibility mode does appear to work.
Run in Compatibility mode with Windows 7.
Right click on hearthstone - properties ->compatibility->Run this program in compatibility for: Windows 7 -> check Run this program as an administrator
ps. not really
pps. Seeing a fix for Windows 7... but I am running Windows 8.1
I'm running Windows 8.1 also, sort it out Blizz! I've also been left with no other option than to hard reset my PC upon closing the program.
