I been playing combat arms on this laptop since 09!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I played fine i never used it for anything else except for combat arms because i have another computer for this. In 2012 combat arms started crashing ever 5-7 min but i found a solution to fix this rash and it was to start combat arms while it was loading i went to task manager quick and when engine.exe appeared i set it's prioty to low and then i did the same for blackcipher and i got a lil bit of lag but it was barley noticable and i was able to play it and i never crashed ever since this. But now ever since this stupid combat arms 3.0 update i started combat arms and i crash. I was like no problem. I just open task manager and do the same for engien and blacipher as a montioned earlier. The game play was really smooth but i crash i unstalled combat arms 18 times scanned my laptop with 4 different anti viruses i defragged my laptop updated it and i'm still crashing. When i start combat arms normally and when i crash i see a debug file in my combat arms files but when i set the engine.exe and blackcipher to low i still crash but no debug file. I tried playing combat arms eu it works fine no crash at all and no lag. I open ca eu file and i went on blackcipher and then there is a file name blackcipher.aes and when i looked at it had like only 745 kb. Then i go on combat arms na and then blackcipher and then blackcipher.aes and when i look at it's kb it's 3,950!! what is this i think that's the reason it crashes i turn my firewall off and anti virus idk what is going on. I don't see how people are saying it's my laptop when combat arms worked fine but now it doesn't.
