    Friends online alert freezes my comp for 10 seconds

    Hi there

    My quakelive freezes quite frequently. My friends alert floods my console every so often and my game freezes for 10 seconds then resumes. I have updated my gfx card drivers to the latest and have turned the alters off in the site settings, but nothing works. ID can you please turn off the alerts on my account manually.

    Kind regards.

    The hook he means is quake live hook manager, an addon for the stand alone client.

    You have two options:
    - use second player account without friendlist (better option than deleting friends on your main account).
    - upgrade your computer, especially CPU; I had freezes on single core, no problem on quad core.
    Also someone had freezes because of disk problems - use checkdisk to fix errors, but I'm not sure if it was the same issue.

    edit: aww, too bad you already deleted friends.

    im getting the same thing. console says:

    disconnected: 17 conuser disconneted

    then all friends are now online

    - laggg x_x


    does it have to do with VPN?! i am not playing via VPN, but it sometimes messes up the log in. just a guess.
    CA with <16 slots is nothing.

    Had at least one user report that cvar_restart fixed this issue for them.
    Be warned that resets most cvars to defaults.

    I'm not sure which don't get reset I've never actually tested it, it might be some of the server stored ones, or just because of some being reset by vstrs or aliases that might not be reset.
