Guild Wars 2 goes 64bit in beta client upgrade, makes memory crashes history

Guild Wars 2 is designed with the intention that players can become the most powerful upright lions in the land by doing only the things they like best. But lately fans of meta events, the sprawling, multi-objective stories that tell the tale of an entire area, have been grappling with regular crashes.

 

"We are rolling out a beta version of a 64 bit client," advised game director Colin Johanson yesterday. "Please give this a shot if you're having crash issues and let us know if that does the trick!" www.bygamer.com/buy-GW2

 

These are the best Guild wars 2 gold on PC. Are you playing one?

 

Sure enough, the beta client is now available if you have a Guild wars 2 gold account. It's a big download - though ArenaNet suggest file duplication can be avoided by placing the launcher's .exe directly into your existing install folder and making a new shortcut for the game.

 

The new client is identical in functionality to the 32bit one - but takes advantage of the higher memory limits enabled by 64bit processors, leading to fewer crashes. www.bygamer.com/buy-GW2

 

"There may be some very slight [performance] differences in favor of either client depending on your computer's configuration," write ArenaNet. "In the vast majority of cases it should be negligible."

 

Public service announcement for players with 64-bit systems that may have experienced memory crashes in Guild wars 2 gold: the beta release of a new 64-bit client may fix that! Arenanet detail the release in a new forum post with a brief FAQ.

You can download the .exe file from Arenanet here. Drop it in the same folder as your 32-bit Gw2.exe file so you don't have to download the entire game again, and keep the 32-bit .exe around in case the new file has issues.

It doesn't sound like the client will add any significant performance improvements, but Arenanet says "there may be some very slight differences in favor of either client depending on your computer's configuration." The main benefit is "significantly less 'out of memory' crashes". It is a beta, so there may be teething problems, but it's easy enough to switch back to 32-bit and wait for a patch. www.bygamer.com/buy-GW2

 

Guild Wars 2 has been busy recently. The base game is now free, and the Heart of Thorns expansion just came out. Find out more about that in our Heart of Thorns review.

 

The developers are planning to release a Mac version, too, but can't say when that's likely to happen. Think you'll upgrade?
