    PS3 frame rate completely broken, crashes everytime.

    Platform:
    PlayStation2-3

    Type of Internet Connection:
    ADSL

    Date & Time:
    Everyday since December update.

    Frequency:
    Everytime I fight something


    Character Name:
    Belmonts

    Race:
    Race of your character when the issue occurred.
    Hume M

    World:
    Fenrir

    Main Job:
    DRK

    Support Job:
    SAM

    Party or Solo:
    Alliance / Solo, in fact doesn't matter

    Monster Name:
    Every fight

    Steps:
    Getting a lot of slowdown when ppl use weaponskills around my character or if I engage any monster to the point I can't be close to any fight whatsoever it either crashes or it freezes for several seconds with no possible control of my char so it either dies or stays there just on auto-fight.

    This problem was happening before last version update but it was never so bad, not like this, to the point I can't play the game content anymore.

    I reinstalled the whole game and that didn't fix it, checked all my internet broadband, removed all effects in game to the point it seems dull, called ISP and nothing, please let developers know.

    Regards,

    P.S. Been looking at the Japanese forums and there is a report of the same issue, a dev. representative Yoji_Fujito answered that there is some memory corruption that causes the problem and they are unable to figure it out at the moment. But yes, it doesn't happen just in VoidWatch now...

    現状報告として、お話できる分だけでもレスポンスさせていただきますね。

    原因についてなのですが、
    結果的には「メモリ破壊が発生し、ブラックアウトする」ということになります。
    しかし、なぜこのメモリ破壊が発生するのかに関して現在調査中なのですが、問題の特定にはいまだ至っておりません。

    そこで、この「PS2がブラックアウトしてしまう現象」に関して、
    もう少し詳細な情報があればこちらのスレッドにご投稿いただけますでしょうか。
    共通項としての原因が洗い出せる可能性もあります。

    また合わせて、ヴォイドウォッチ以外で同様のブラックアウトが発生した場合も、不具合の関連性が疑われますので報告していただけますでしょうか。

    その際、報告テンプレートに沿った投稿ですと、たいへん助かります。

    原因が分かり次第、改めてご連絡させていただきます。
    大変ご迷惑をおかけして申し訳ありません。
    I really hope this can be fixed because is a serious issue.

    Greetings Belmonts!

    Thank you very much for the report. As you mentioned, there was a post by Associate Director Yoji Fujito, which I'd like to translate and post for you here. As you can see the development team is investigating this very issue.

    I would like, however, to give you a status update with what information I have.

    In regards to the cause, ultimately memory corruption is taking place and leading to the game erroring and blacking out.
    However, we are currently investigating why this memory corruption is taking place and we have yet to find the specific problem.

    With that said, if you have any other specific information pertaining to the phenomenon of these PS2 black outs, we would appreciate it if you could post it here in this thread. There is a possibility that we expose the common cause.

    Also along these lines, we'd appreciate it if you could let us know of similar black outs besides those occurring in Voidwatch, as it could be a related bug.

    When submitting your bug report, it would help out a lot if you could post following the bug report template.

    Once we figure out the cause I will be sure to let you know.
    I apologize for the inconvenience.

    I have posted previously about blackouts and game freezing during the Wings of the Goddess cs's on PS2 version. I can't remember off hand but I will look into it to find the specific missions cs it happened on. Also I play PS2 on PS3 as well as computer sometimes, and I have noticed on the PS2/3 version tremendous lag in Port Jueno to the point of being unable to move ever since the update.

    PS2 limitations ruin everything. Even the PS2 gameplay itself.

    Not sure if I should file a separate report but to further the post: This does not happen only in Voidwatch. Notable times for me have been during Arch Dynamis Lord, Legion and when running past a clustered Abyssea party.

    I've recently experienced these black outs on my PS2 system as-well. Only for me they have so far only taken place twice in Northern Sandy. Oddly enough both times were in the exact same pos and while running from Southern sandy to the outpost warp npc. :S

    if you can say "Beer Can" with a british accent,
    you're also saying "Bacon" with a jamaican accent.

    It happened to me a couple times from running around in Southern San d'Oria. It also happened recently when I was trying to enter Dynamis - Buburimu for the first time, it blacked out right after the cutscene shows my character collapsing.
