Vista hotfix fixes City of Heroes crashes

January 7, 2009 Comments off

When I bought a new computer it had Windows Vista (64-bit) preinstalled. Initally when I installed and played City of Heroes/Villains on the computer I had some severe graphical issues, which were tracked down to problems in the Nvidia drivers from my graphics card. These were later fixed.

However, I have still had regular crashes when playing the game where the screen goes blank, program hangs and Vista reports that it has reset the graphics drivers. Kill the program and start it again was the only thing to do.

Now there seem that this issue might have been a Vista problem and Microsoft released a hotfix for it, which was reported in the City of Heroes/Villains forums.

The hotfix can be found at this URL:

New Spellborn update near end of January

January 7, 2009 1 comment

There seems to be a content+bugfix update scheduled for the end of this month for Spellborn, according to community manager Banshee:

A content patch is planned for end of January, containing, again, truckloads of bugfixes, some new content and game improvements. More info and news about it will be released in the coming weeks.

No details yet, but I am eager to see what game improvements and bug fixes that are included. More content is also fine and I think some people who have gained fairly high levels may be looking for more content.
