1) make a full backup of your harddisk (if something fails)
2) run a full disk defragmentation in Windows (command: defrag)
3) start the installation with one of the well known Linux distributions (openSUSE, Ubuntu, ...)
4) the Linux installer will make a setup recomendation to install the system beside your existing Windows
Thank you, I'll try that when I get home.

However my Regnum client is crashing all the time under Linux (i don't have Windows) so I doubt if changing the OS will help
Read again my last post. Solution has been given bazillions times in these forums.

Ok, "weapon trails" is the above or below one of this two or do I have to disable both?

Weapon Trails and Weapon Beams cause crashes. Better disable them both.

Weapon trails = Estelas de armas.

I still have "weapon beams" (rayos de armas) ticked on and I never crash.

I have nor the one nor the other, and if regnum crashes just as much on linux as on windows it's kinda a lot of work for not much profit.
+ it's a bit stupid to install linux just because one game doesnt work properly :/.

(And i don't know much about computers either )

If you deselect weapon trails, regnum does not crash on linux.

Now, it's only your choice. Stay on a crappy OS that will crash regnum all the time or enter in the wonderful land of Free Software.

Come on...

Someone complains about RO crashes and the only thing you recommend is "Install Linux" ?

RO is crossplatform, using crossplatform libraries, and besides for the Direct3D renderer, most of the code is (must be...) exactly the same. There's no reason why it should crash more on Windows than Linux if both using the OpenGL renderer at least...

Really, I'm using and I'm all for Linux, but preaching it like this especially to people who have no purpose nor knowledge for it is counterproductive...

Instead of moaning, what do you suggest ?
Installing linux is a fully tested and functional solution.

OpenGL is badly supported on Windows.

Did you miss my smiley ?

Anyway, even my little sister "who knows nothing in computer" succeeded to install Ubuntu by herself and run it without any help. She just read "How to install" in documentation. There is no knowledge required.

What I implied below : test with the OpenGL renderer. Maybe it performs better with Safe Mode than D3D who knows...

It may work, but it's stupid to solve a minor issue with huge and unecessary changes on all the computer. It's like squashing a fly with a nuclear bomb.

If the drivers are up-to-date, OpenGL is absolutely fine on Windows. Maybe just less performant than on Linux tho.
The graphics drivers share the same OpenGL rendering code between Linux and Windows.

Even if it's much easier to install Linux noadays, it's still a big task and very invasive changes in the computer and in the daily usage of a computer. There's nothing wrong with someone (beginner or not) that wants to switch on and discover Linux, who's ready to change his daily Win-habits...
Because even if most of the Desktop Environments in Linux are as simple if not simpler than Windows, it's still very different. The core of the OS is radically different and same for the possible issues the user might encounter too...

And that's why, suggesting to someone to cut his hard drive in half, reserve 3GB+RO and install a totally different OS just to solve a stupid issue concerning a game is not a good solution. Not everyone wants to reboot just to avoid a bug for a game, then reboot again to use some Windows-only programs or just get back to it as not needing/wanting Linux for the other normal computer tasks...
In the best case it's just uneeded, in the worst it's just leading to the frustration of the user (who naturally becomes an anti-linux troll)...

Anyways back on the topic, a lot of RO players are running Windows and don't seem to complain about excessive crashes, why would this case be impossible ?
