It's been a while since I expressed some of my objectives for the CC . First of all I like and respect everyone that joins our club . I realize that not everyone knows what a CC is all about . Many have different reasons for joining . I really don't know how many of the other clubs are run . They are all different . What I want to emphasize in our CC is that whatever tier you are . That you feel comfortable here , part of a team of players that come here to find conditions that enable them to improve their game , hone their skills , lower their scores ,lower their averages , move up in tiers . Enjoyably and comfortably with the conditions that challenge them enough to keep that drive without the frustrationsof regular game play . All that is completely possible by either creating those tourneys yourself or by messaging me about it . Or someone else in your tier that has been creating tourneys . Any kind of information that you need to know should be provided here , any kind of appp , calculator , help , tutorial , tournament , statistic , message , opinion , gripe , compliment , etc , etc . Should able to be aqcuired here ( or in our website , as it may be easier there ). With your help , all of this can be done easily . We already have a good start . I am going to be here for a very long time trying to achieve all this . For any of you that think it's a good direction for your CC to go in . Then lets keep on keepin on . Sincerely , Your Co team member PDB1 , Paul ( sitting here on a rare rainy day ) May the SUN always be with you
Re: Where are the Flags ?By Bertasion in Valley of the Sun Casual Club The other day upon the heather fair I hit a flagstick that was not there. I saw it's shadow and heard the clank but where it stood was just a blank. It was not there again today. I wonder when it will come back and stay. Brian

There are also 3rd party utilities that can analyze the system's hardware information and compare it against a game's minimum and recommended requirements.
Have you installed patches the developers released for their game? Game patches often address known issues as they are uncovered in previous versions. It is also important to obtain these patches directly from the game developer.
Operating System Updates:
It is important to keep the Operating System updated by installing the latest service packs and updates. These updates can help improve the stability of the system. For Windows® OS systems, use Microsoft™ Windows Update.
DirectX is an application programming interface (API) required to run games. To ensure DirectX is updated on your system, use Microsoft's DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer. Some games require specific extensions for DirectX in order to run. These extensions are installed during the installation of the game by offering the choice to install. If these extensions were not installed, the game will not run. If the choice was made to not install the required DirectX extensions, reinstall the game. Ensure all required components are installed.
Overclocking can improve game performance, but may also impact the system's stability. For example, increased heat output and power consumption from the overclocked hardware can lead to crashes and hangs. Restoring the system to its default clock and voltage settings can rule out overclocking as a possible cause.
Heat & Ventilation:
An excess amount of heat in a system can be a cause of a game's crash, hang or less than expected performance. Ensure the system has ample airflow, cooling, and proper ventilation to help prevent hardware components from overheating. For example, rearrange cables to avoid blocking the airflow to the graphics card and visually inspect that all fans are dust-free and working.
An under-powered system or graphics card can cause poor game performance, crashes or hangs. The following support resources can help troubleshoot this possible cause:
[*] [Video] How To: Troubleshoot Potential Power Supply Issues
[*] [KB Article] How to determine if my system's instability is related to the power supply
Faulty hardware can cause crashes, hangs or less than expected performance in games. Troubleshooting faulty hardware involves a process of elimination to separately rule out each piece of hardware. Two suggested methods of ruling out the various components of the system's hardware include:
[*]Replace the suspected hardware component, or swap it between available systems to see if the issue follows the hardware.
[*]Run a stress-test on the hardware component to determine if it passes or fails.
Poor game performance, crashes, or hangs can be caused by graphics driver conflicts. Ensuring the previous graphics driver was thoroughly uninstalled before installing an updated version is an important step to prevent driver conflicts. Please refer to the Knowledge Base articles below for instructions on uninstalling and installing graphics drivers
Graphics driver updates are released periodically to address reported issues. I suggests using the most recent graphics driver as a troubleshooting step to resolve game issues.
Running games at the maximum supported resolution of the display and at the highest level of graphics details could over strain system resources. Adjusting graphics settings can affect how a game performs. Specific graphics options can potentially impact a game's performance, and cause it to crash or hang.
Game Graphics Settings:
- If available, allow the game to automatically detect the system's hardware, and set graphics options accordingly.
- Adjust the graphics settings independently in each game to find the preferred balance between graphics quality and game performance.
Updating Motherboard BIOS and Chipset:
BIOS and chipset updates to the motherboard can help resolve system crashes or hangs. To obtain the latest update for the motherboard's BIOS and chipset, visit the motherboard's or system manufacturer's website.
A game may crash or hang because other applications are running in the background. Anti-virus and security software, remote desktop utilities, system monitoring or overclocking utilities, and messenger programs are examples of background applications. To rule out the possibility that a background application is the cause of poor performance, a crash, or hang, it is suggested to temporarily disable the application(s) before running the game. For Windows OS based systems follow the instructions provided by Microsoft:
[Article ID: 331796] Perform a clean startup to determine whether background programs are interfering with your game or program
Many games contain an online component that requires a network connection with sufficient bandwidth to carry the necessary amount of game data between the local computer system and the game's host server. Poor game performance can sometimes be attributed to high latency (the delay in the communication of data). For debugging help, consider the following:
- Contact the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to verify the internet connection is sufficient for online gaming.
- Contact the game developer for suggestions on in-game network settings.
- Contact the manufacturer of any router, hub or switch that is in use for configuration help.
Many games do an excellent job of utilizing the processing power of the graphics card. However, some games rely more heavily on the CPU, and this can become a bottleneck that leads to less than expected performance. Monitoring the CPU's usage while playing a game can help determine if the CPU is bottlenecking the performance. If the CPU runs at a constant 100% this can be an indication the CPU is a bottleneck. A faster CPU may be needed if a CPU bottleneck is happening. Check the motherboard's compatibility list of supported CPUs.
Despite best efforts, the integrity of an operating system's registry and system files can be compromised over time. If the crash, hang or poor performance persists after all other troubleshooting and debugging steps have been tried, formatting the hard-drive and reinstalling the operating system will help rule out a corrupted OS as the cause.
Your Task Manager is also storing a wealth of infomation related to the CPU.
This is only a synopsis of the full troubleshooting steps.
