Hello, i already had this issue since the last beta patch but hoped it to be fixed in some time.
Let me explain what exactly happens:
on several custom maps (all of them worked during tft and early beta stages, one of them is made by myself so i can ensure that no changes done to the map caused the issue) shortly after starting the map all screens of my pc turn black, all fans start spinning on 100% and i have to shutdown the device by holding the powerbutton.
following conditions i could narrow down on the map i made myself thats causing the issues:
-it does not happen when testing the map from the editor
-it does not happen if i play with an empty lobby except myself
-it does not happen if the lobby is full of computer-players (computer players do not act in the map)
-it happens at diffrent moments everytime, sometimes after a few seconds, sometimes it takes several minutes
-i am using custom UI in the map, but interacting with the UI on purpose does not cause any crash
-i am having some areas with a lot of doodads but aside from frame drops (~100 -> ~30) when looking at those areas, nothing really happens there and also does not crash
-units moving/interacting does not casue the crash as sometimes the game is running without issues for a while ad sometimes it crashes before any interactions with units
the last time this happened it uninstalled my wc3, i had to download and install the game completely again via launcher, only the /users folders were left.
this time the bootmanager had to perform a repair of the C: drive to be able to boot.
i have absolutely no issues with other games (no matter how power demanding they are - for example ark on highest settings is running smooth) and it only happens while playing wc3 on certain maps, i can provide a dl link to one of the maps here: epicwar[dot]com/maps/303308/ (not allowed to post links)
most maps work properly, no matter if older or newer.
this literally makes the game not just unplayable but puts my device and data at risk. so i’d like u to check the issue. sadly there are no logfiles from those crashes as the device has to be shutdown.
below u see my device details just to prevent anything like "maybe your pc is too weak for wc3)
