Hello and thank you in advance for what you do,
I downloaded and have been playing a free vanilla version of World Of Warcraft set up on a private server, called Emerald Dream Vanilla, developed by the Feenix Project. I've had the following problem both in vanilla WoW, and in a different Free-to-Play called Rusty Hearts, published by Perfect World E. At complete random the game will freeze and the audio will start to skip, after 5-10seconds after the intial freeze my whole computer will freeze up and lock, making me force shut down my computer. I've tried several of Emerald Dream's little fixes such as clearing cache, attempting to run the game both in DX9 or DX11. So far, no little tweaks the developers have have worked. It's really weird, because I managed to play through level1-10, and I only crashed like once or twice. Once I moved to the 11-20 area, I couldn't stay in-game hardly 10 minutes. I went to the major cities and experienced no lag and only one crash upon entering the congested area. In Rusty Hearts, the game also froze at random, regardless of where I was or whatever my character was doing. Though in Rusty Hearts I also couldn't manage to stay in-game longer than 1-2minutes before it would freeze and crash.
The following is a speccy snapshot.
I can't quite get any information from Emerald Dream, but if anything, the Specs needed for Emerald Dream are the exact same as the specs needed for the very first version of World of Warcraft, before any expansion packs were added. I've also recently updated my video card, but that did not help at all.
