Different sort of client crash
As I said in other threads, I had had lots of the memory leak crashes where memory utilization of the LOTRO client when north of 3.5GB just prior to the client exiting and getting a dump. I turned down my graphics to Medium and those seem to be completely gone now.
But the last couple of days I've had two crashes that were different. All of a sudden the UI disappears off the screen - all that's left is my character and the scenery (as if you had done a F12 to hide the UI) and the cursor turns into a spinning beachball. I can get to other things on the Mac and they are responsive, but the LOTRO client is locked up. Every once in a while the UI flashes on an off very rapidly then disappears again. Memory utilization of the LOTRO client is down around 1.5GB. If I wait long enough (2 or 3 minutes?) the entire machine locks up and I have to do a forced shutdown with the power on button.
Somehow this doesn't seem like the memory leak crash everyone's been experiencing, does it? Feels more like the display driver (if there is such a thing on Mac OS X) is dying.
Anyway, I bugged it...
