Can you go to C:\Windows\Minidump, and check what files are there?

The BSOD is likely the cause of the corrupt installation.
Have you tried turning it off and on again?

if you have downloaded the gamefiles for YOU already then block upload completely, dont just limit it
(for downloading: limit all ports except port 80 for gamecenter process, this will stop the process from establishing peer to peer *** and just download straight from game-updateserver)

i blocked upload completely and it still downloaded over 3 GB of data...
while monitoring these activities i saw it was downloading the pack files, so its legit

the biggest part are the high-res files...
if you are limited on bandwith or want to save bandwith just because you want, you can also suspend the process from downloading after getting the core files, since high-res is not NECESSARY for playing, but very large

after it finished i suspended the process from network completely and now im fine
i only give it access to download if there is new content


it is really a bad move, that there is an option to "limit upload" ingame to 16kb/s but there is no option to stop download completely
what if i dont want to upload? right, game does not care, i have to solve this problem myself....

i dont use the gamecenter thingy at all for downloading patches. It runs in background but not actively (its not even on my task bar right now) once i launch the game, thats fine.

it is never in the taskbar


also i think he already starts it from Allods/bin/launcher
the [email protected] still runs then

launcher.exe is the parental process of [email protected]

if you kill [email protected] while playing, AOgame.exe will try to restart it
however if you dont allow AOgame.exe to restart it you are still fine as long as you have downloaded all data thats necessary for playing
