freeze Screen freeze / unresponsive while fishing

Hi there 

Since the last major update I have been having intermittent problems with random screen freezing. My pc is fine but the game becomes unresponsive and has to be forced to close and restarted. 

This only seems to happen when I am fishing either afk or active. This can happen to me after a few minutes of being online or after 5 hours of fishing. This has happened fishing inland at rivers or on the coast or out on the ocean. I can be the only one fishing or there can be many people around me. 

I have noticed that any changes to my ui while playing in that period will have been reset. 

Things I have tried: 

  • Incrementally lower and raise graphics settings to see whether anything in particular was causing the issue. No change to freezing. 
  • Closing other background processes. No change to freezing. 
  • Running BDO with virus scanning completely closed. No change to freezing. 
  • Change between full screen/borderless/windowed. No change to freezing. 
  • Reinstall and update graphics card driver. No change to freezing. 
  • Roll back graphics card driver. No change to freezing. 
  • Monitor graphics card and cpu using MSI afterburner. I have never seen anything stand out when I encounter a screen freeze although generally I see resources significantly increase when starting fishing. 
  • Swapping channels. No change to freezing.  

It can be extremely frustrating, especially with the 10 minute timer on trading after a disconnect and energy regen. 

PC specs: 

I have found a temporary solution for afk fishing that works for me: 

You can force access to the game map while fishing by using /reloadui and pressing "m" staight after. While autofishing with the map up I do not seem to be suffering from this issue. This still affects me when actively fishing.

Exactly the same Issue here. I red on reddit (tehehe) that this seems to be releated to Windows 10 and that minimizing the Game could Help. Trying this out myself right now.

same issue for me for the past month, and not just from fishing...  happens randomly when playing or looking at the game map, assigning workers, etc....  terribly annoying needs to be addressed.  Need visibility on this issue....  GM responsed to my ticket saying they are investigating, that was back on like 3/12

Made a separate post since I'm not sure if this is the same issue, but since the last 2-3 days I have also been having the game freeze randomly, but it can happen anywhere for me. http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/64672-game-freezing-unable-to-re-launch-and-computer-nonresponsive/

Adding that I've had the freeze while running, horseback, going into populated cities, sleeping in a bed in heidel, or fishing. Doesn't seem to matter what I'm doing in game.

froze on me a couple of times game unresponsive and had to close it via task manager. Also using windows 10 although loads of ppl are using 10 and not having problems so i thought it was just me till i read forums. Its usually when im travelling on mount if crossing into a town/city it freezes but like i say its only done a couple times since the last update

Since the mediah update I get random freezes a lot, mostly when a fishing pole is equipped. (thick fishing rod as no skilled 5 yet)

nothing goes wrong when normaly playing the game and gathering/cooking/alchemy

the sopund in the background continues and the number of fishes on the frozen screen is NOT equal to the amount of fishes after I restart (might have been frozen for hours...) and I had more fishes in my inventory then visible on the frozen screen. so it is the UI freezing (as some one pointing out that afk fishing with map open also didnt crash)

 

EDIT:

And thanks for the tip of opening the map before leaving the pc!

Exactly the same with me! Has any of the lazy devs or CM's even posted a reply? Has anyone had any luck with this pos game issue? Starting to think my hard earned money should be spend back in Blade n Soul or back in Archeage!
