Please take a look at the support ticket I filed. The thing is quite severe I would say.
Long story short:
[Lag Window UI Thread] Octgn.OctgnApp [(null)] - UNHANDLED EXCEPTION
I think you guys are overthinking the issue. Check out feelings of the Netrunner community. A lot of people hate those popups, regardless if they experience crashes or not. Sometimes it is wise to simply rollback the unfortunate new feature and move on.
Just played around with a limited game window controls for about 5 minutes, didn't notice anything suspicious.
well, maybe not easy... but it would at least be a start.
have you tried using compatibility mode? also, would one of you try opening the limited window (Game -> Limited Game OR Ctrl+Shift+L) and see if that can cause the crash as well? it seems to be caused by a problem in windows 8 that only shows up on systems that have touch, but if it doesn't happen anywhere except with the lag window and that window, it might actually be pretty easy to work around.
also, I'm correct in understanding the rest of the program is still pretty stable right? you aren't getting crashes opening the deck editor or the main window or anything?
I have been experiencing problems with the crash box as well, so I'll drop some logs here. Also, yes my machine does have touch capabilities.
Do your computers have touch capabilities? also, try running in comparability mode for windows 7 or vista and see if that helps.
Do you need any more information about the setup? If so, what specifically?
Ok so tell me more about your computer
