Since this most recent patch, the game hard crashes my entire system - "blue screen of death" - before I can login fully. I've not been able to play at all.
I can get through the launcher, and login, but before I'm ever able to get to the Character Selection Screen - the game hard freezes my entire system. Every. Time.
I get through the company loading screens. I sometimes get through the Elsewheyr Introduction and then crash on the next loading screen, and sometimes I don't even make it through the intro-movie. I've seen the intro movie now several times, saw it several months ago when it launched - but the resets apparently forget that each time.
I've turned down all graphics to MINIMAL.
I've turned OFF the sound entirely - just in case it was the recent update windows bug I read in here.
I've ran repair - several times.
I can't turn off the addons because I can't get far enough in game to turn off my addons (Fun Fact: Can't do it from account login! HA!); but I DID try removing the entire addon folder and repairing and going that way. No help. Still BSOD system crash.
I've updated everything to be updated. Graphics card, windows, etc. I've tried the other suggested troubleshooting articles, already.
Nothing has done diddly squat to help. Game is unplayable.
Prior to this patch I was playing just fine - rarely ever any lag even - at ultra-high graphics.
This is nuts - what did this patch change!
