    Everything seemed to be working great when I was playing (now).

    I found a few faster race paths so I'll be updating the pics soon.

    Nope. I got over 2 million XP on my mammoth and only maxed out the mass stat. The cost of upgrades is more exponential than linear (every upgrade costs about twice the one before it).

    Did you submit a bug report on it? If you haven't, you should.

    Chat isn't working in my instance and the SIN is slow. Can occasionally get Warning: Connection Problems too. I submitted a bug report on it but I suspect it is simply Sunday afternoon excessive server load issue.

    Pay to get fluff(aka bling) and you can pay to get some cool toys like a new battle suite really fast. Completely unneccessary.

    I updated the "Crash Course" for the patch.

    The chat problems seem to be instance-wide. If you can't chat, chances are no one else can either. It seems to come and go during high-load times.

    I still can't stay logged in more than a minute or two. Thought it might be a memory leak but I stop at about 50% ram usage.

    Hmm. In the support forums I see lots of complains of the same problem. I am reading that the problem is that it is a memory leak, although it does not appear to be on my system unless firefall limits its ram usage. The current solution is to use a game booster software and disable every service and process except firefall just so you have x amount more time to play.

    i see you have 8gb and me 16gb (and i doubt its because i have a AMD cpu and you a INTEL that you get a memory leak ... )

    does that mean that a mem leak at 50% the thresold is 4gb for you and 8gb for me ? (forgive that newbish question i have a memory lapse about memory leak)

    I doubt everyone has the problem. Only certain unlock individuals like me. I am sad though. I was really trying to grind at least an hour each night to get that lgv. The new patch basically made it so I can't even without this freezing problem.

    I'm sure it is the load problems. The patch made the servers unstable. I hope they get another patch out soon to fix it.

    Firefall is 32-bit which means it only has access to 4 GiB of RAM.

    Then it is a memory leak. If it can only use 4gb, it is using up all 4 gb and freezing. Fits the symptoms.

    Finally got to play last night. Decided to try using as little ram as possible before I started the game. Basically I cant use more than 4gb, cause firefall wont share with other programs. With pretty much just firefall, windows, and antivirus I use about 3.38gb of ram.

    Also found an exploit spot that had 80% anabolics. With my light personal thumper I got about 650 per thump. It got to thump the spot like 20 times for like 15 thousand anabolics. Then I left and helped a squad I joined by with a turrent nearby. Went back to the spot and it had a high amount of biopolymers. So I was helping my squad with that thumper while having my own personal thumper do its stuff. I was really raking it in while I was mostly afk reading my book listening for the sound cues from the game. My turret did all the work.

    That's not a leak (leak can lead to it). It is an unhandled OutOfMemory error.

    A 9 MB patch was just released:
    http://beta.firefallthegame.com/launcher/web_panel

    • Blending resources will no longer decrease the overall quantity of resources.
    • Jetball loading screen will now have a proper loading image.
    • Changed UI to support up to 8 characters for two-stage authentication allowing for a longer delay between codes.
    • Bastion ability, Multi-Turret, will now spawn more than three turrets at higher stages.
    • Fixed multiple chat server crashes.

    I am going to turn down my video settings and see if that helps. I have a x64 OS though.
