Game or DirectX crashes

I built a new system and Battlefield 4, BF4, was crashing on me. I could not figure it out for over a week with a lot of time spent on searching. Someone told me to try out a solution and it fixed my problem. I see a lot of people out there looking for the same problem. If this does not fix it for you then I am sorry and good luck. I will not be able to help you out.

My game would crash or freeze randomly within ten minutes. The error I got was something for DirectX and said the device hung.

Ok, here is the fix:

1 – Go to Power Options in the Control Panel.
2 – Click on “Change plan settings” next to the power plan you are using.
3 – Click on “Change advanced power settings”
4 – Scroll down the list to PCI Express and expand it
5 – Expand Link State Power Management
6 – Set to off and apply and close all dialogs and windows

Ok, now go and test your game or application and see if it does not crash anymore. If it does then this is not your fix. Sorry

I think what was happening is Windows would reduce the power to the video card while I was playing my game and then it would freeze up due to not having enough power.

MoveIt 1.7

Fixed the category. Moved MoveIt to the games category.


MoveIt 1.6

MoveIt 1.6 is now available. I made it easier to distinguish the colors. When the game is installed for the first time if you choose to start with hard you will never see the help screens. I have fixed it so that you will see the help screens if you have not seen them yet.


Backdrops 1.1

I have been really busy but I am always working to improve my apps. I have been working on Backdrops 1.1 update and hopefully I will get it out to you within a week. Please remember to update my reviews with a better rating once you have tried the new update.

There will be 70 pictures in this update. I have improved the all pictures, overview, and the quick list. I think you will really like the pictures as well as the new and improved all pictures. When flicking between the photos it is seamless with no large blank space between the pictures. The flick has been improved and the picture can be moved around with panning.

Overview is no longer on the panorama view and now accessible from the menu items. Like before you can click on the tiny photo and you will be taken to the single picture view. Now if you move your finger around the photos you will see a larger preview. Once you have a photo chosen lift your finger and you will be taken to the single picture view.

I will be working on 1.2 shortly which will give you even more new functionality. Enjoy. If you like my apps please remember that they are free and share them with friends. After all they are free and I do spend a lot of my time working hard on my apps for you. Thanks

MoveIt Details

Move it builds the game board in three ways which are easy, medium, or hard. Although the easy and medium game boards almost look-alike they are indeed created differently and can be noticed the most when the game board has more blocks. Another words a game board with 10×10 blocks will be noticeable. The hard game board by far is way different from the easy and medium and uses what I call multiple paths. A path consists of a path created with blocks of the same color. Then the next path is created using a different color. The paths and colors are randomly created.

When playing the easy and medium game boards you can go back to the tiles you have previously visited. You can tell you have previously visited a block because it will be black. It is possible that a path color can be randomly colored similar to the black visited block but will never be the same. There also can be a path that is colored close to the current block color of white but will never be the same. Having paths of similar colors can be challenging and add to the fun. Being able to use your previously visited blocks is part of the design and will allow you to fly around the game board without getting stuck.

The hard game board with multiple paths also allows you to visit your previously visited blocks. However, once you move from the last block of a path to the next path that path you were currently on will disappear. This makes it challenging for you to complete the level. You better pay attention though. You need to make sure that the last block of the current path that you are on will allow you to get to the next path. If you cannot get to the next path then that level is over.

Besides the easy, medium, and hard game boards there are many levels that you will go through. When you increase a level more blocks are added to the game board. At first you start out with 3×3 and max out at 10×10. As you increase your skills a timer will be added and you will race time. Then the radius of the blocks will start to change making your moves a little hard to see. Next the angle of the block will change and then you will really need to focus. Starting at level 55 you will face all elements. The number of tiles will increase, there will be a timer, the radius will randomly change, and the block will have a random angle. If you can survive this long then you will be amazed at how challenging MoveIt has become.

Throughout the game you will earn new lives specially when needed but you better hang on to them because you will need every life you earn. The lives earned are displayed underneath the stats on the stat screen at the end of a level. You cannot repeat a level when a level is lost due to running out of time or failing to complete a path. A life will be taken and you will have another chance to move on if you have some remaining lives.

MoveIt will get future updates with more features and game play so move it, have fun and I look forward to your feedback. Do not forget to leave comments here on my website if you would like a response.
