After playing WoWP for a while I can no longer alt-tab fluidly anymore, not even after leaving WoWP. It takes a restart to correct this (which takes something like 10 minutes because I don't do hibernation, takes too much space on my cramped 128GB SSD).

 

What is going on?



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

If it's memory leak, then it leaks so hard, it's beyond recovery...

Your pc has grown an immunity to your alt-tabbing shenanigans :trollface:

 

Im assuming your wowp is not installed in an ssd. Load times i imagine are quite longer on an hdd. Questions to ask yourself would be - how old is your hdd, when was the last time you cleaned your pc, is it that annoying antivirus [edited], cleared the cache, cleared dns etc.

 

Idk it's probably mostly the clients fault. If all else fails then a reinstall is your last resort. But even if the problem persists after that, then im guessing the issue is internal.

Planes isn't on SSD though.

 

...and by cleaning, you mean physically or deleting stuff?

MMOs (and most newer SP games)  tend to load considerably longer on HDD than being  installed in an ssd. Cleaning like using CCleaner. Registry cleaning. Maybe a HDD defrag is in order. When was the last time you defragged your hdd? Stuff like that you can try.

 

Actually you know what. Just buy a cheap 250gb ssd. Slap it in, install wowp = profit. You probably won't need to spend more than $100 to get one. In this time of the year there's bound to have plenty of deals. I'd take that opportunity now.

I guess the title is as bugged as the game itself
