I have already:

  • removed the fatshark folder in %appdata%
  • verified integrity of game files
  • rebooted my pc
  • reinstalled the game

Edit: all my drivers and software are up to date

The hotfix that just dropped, 1.0.31, didnt fix the problem.
The same error still persists

I believe I have the same issue. See: Game crash on load since 1.0.31

Please reinstall your drivers as opposed to updating them. A clean reinstall can work wonders.

Did a clean re-install of all my drivers and rebootet my pc.

Didnt work

The new hotfix, 1.0.31+, also didnt fix the problem

The new hotfix, 1.0.32, also didnt fix the issue

1.0.32 did not fix the issue.

Fatshark, y’all really screwed up this latest update. I had no crashes prior to the update and now I cannot play

Are you still experiencing this, @Jasper_of_the_Dawn? Would you like me to help you with a refund?

I am still experiencing the same issue. Your help getting a refund would be much appreciated

No problem - I’ll DM you now!
