Last time i had the Blue Screen of Death, it ended up being my memory stick. Had to replace it, but since i did, i haven't had a single BSoD (sounds like something someone would sell on Kingdoms).

I get these BSoD's quite often. It is a graal problem eating up your computer usage. If your on windows XP press ctrl alt delt, and I bet its eating up 100% computer usage. There really is no way stopping it, some people are lucky and dont get this, some people arent and get these ubersexified***nessBSoD's. I get them and I got latest drivers, and my computer wouldnt be called a piece of sh*t. so its totally random I think O_o

No I'd try the graphic card drivers. What kind of graphic card do you have?

Graal has an FPS of 20 because thats what all the game logic runs at, anything higher would be wasteful. It shows 100% CPU although its not using 100% CPU. I cant remember the specifics of why, but I remember discussing it with Stefan.

Never get any types of errors. Your computer must be old and crappy.

Graal takes 100% on Windows task manager because it needs to do good timing (each frame exactly taking 0.05 seconds) so the animations and movement don't feel weird. It is actually not taking 100%, it is just sleeping until it is time to do something again. On a decent computer you should be able to run 30+ Graal instances without slow downs (at least in offline mode, in online mode you have scripts and more graphics which might slow down it).
If the game is crashing the computer then it is a problem with the hardware (or the way Graal is accessing it), normally there shouldn't be any problems when you have good drivers for the graphics card and sound card. We will add a version check for the gfx card in v3.1 soon, because we have seen that most problems people have with Graal have to do with old gfx driver. If you have a new computer and you don't install the latest drivers of Nvidia or ATI then games will crash. May be some games will run fine because they only use the most common features of the gfx card, but I have seen many fresh XP and Win2000 installations which crash on games or video.

..

So it really is using it, probably while it's sleeping, in order to do that kind of timing. I guess what you mean is without the timing intentionally being done this way, Graal wouldn't really use 100% (or as much as possible) all of the time.

I'm not trying to cause any problems, but I wish you would find a way to do it without unnesessarily heating computers. It can't be good when people play so frequently and for such long periods of time. This is even more noticable when playing on laptops, which tend to get very hot, especially under heavy CPU loads (caused by Graal's "timing" in this case)..
