Online Games & Avast 6
« on: March 17, 2011, 12:11:31 PM »
Hello, i just want to share....so many online games that conflict with avast 6. The only solution is downgrade to avast 5.1. What's wrong between online games with avast 6?

what games? Could you be more specific?

Most of the problems with online games is caused by behavioral shield checking the behaviour of the programs but sometimes it influences the program run and some of antichating rootkits fails because of that. In most of the times it should be enough to switch of the BS when you want to play the game.

We are removing all the known incompatibilities / problems continuously. however it's difficult if we don't know what programs the avast! interferes with...
Quality is also a feature.

Yes, but it's too complicated to solve this problem. Because almost all online games that i play is closed for region outside my country. I've reported this issue to the game publisher but so far no change. They are not game developer, just publisher. So, i can't expect much to them. The game site is www.gemscool.com (closed for outside indonesia). But one of their games is similar with Project Blackout from pb.ntreev.net
