Client stops responding on dropdown menus/tooltips

Having an issue where every time I click any drop down menu, or hover over anything that pops up a tooltip, the client seems to become unresponsive and I get this error:

Other than this, I am able to use the client normally and join games as long as I do not hover over anything that causes client to freeze and become unresponsive.

I did also find this same issue on the old forums, though it was never resolved:

I only downloaded the client a few days ago, the first day it worked fine but on following days the problem arose.
I have tried giving permission on firewalls, restarting computer and redownloading client.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to fix it.


Where did you get this error from? Is this the full error?


Hey thank you for reply, when the "FAF is not responding" window pops up, this is the error details that it shows as the problem. not sure what it means as i am not much of a computer person. Won't let me show the screenshot, but its basically just the window that gives the options: "Check for a solution and close the program", "Close the program," "wait for the program to respond"

Can you get the client logs? The log in called downlords-faf-client.log and can be found by clicking in the menu top left on show logs


Nope that causes the no-response error. Did you want me to copy paste from the .log file on the computer? Or, I could save as txt doc to upload it?
