Game Crashes Only When Minimized

Aside from the normal game crashes that happen whenever you swap characters, servers or go to the magnus, BDO is now crashing whenever the game is minimized. It appears to happen most often when afk horse training.

Steps to replicate:

1: Select an auto-loop auto-path preset

2: Begin afk horse training (horse type or wagon attached does not matter)

3a: Horse auto-pathing will stop mid training (best case scenario)

3b: Game will flat out crash with no error

I am losing countless hours of leveling to this bug and I am very much pissed off it's even happening. It never used to do this.

Hi there, as i had similar issues recently, may I ask where you are autopathing and in which graphic setting?
I had the crashes in a certain spot in Duvencrune (right when exiting the city through the northern gate). However, I only got the crashes while I was in Low or Medium graphic settings. I changed to Lowest/Optimal, and have not had any crashes in the last 4 nights. Maybe that can work for you too.

Is this being looked into? Its been around 1 month now without any word on it.

It started on the same patch for every1 currently experiencing this issue so its very clearly a game client problem.

Monday night I crashed within a few minutes of putting the game in tray, last night I crashed 26min after putting the game in tray. Thats 2 nights of lost energy regen with the auto-applied kama buff we were given from login rewards. Its also lost worker progress and farm crops not growing.

Is this even being looked into?

Mount exp event going and the game just keeps crashing almost every night when you afk ride horses...

How many months until we at least get to know if they are working on this or not? Silence means no in my book.

Same here, the game is crashing every 10 minutes or so when minimized for afk horse training.

Hey, so far the two fixes i heard of are either using Elvia to "hide" in, or setting graphics to lowest / optimal. Both has been successful for a number of people so far.
