Just picked up this game on the Skulls for the Skull Throne steam sale last week. Been constant issues right from the start.
I can only play for about 1 or maybe 2 games before the game crashes with a “Corrupted Data” error message, and frequently, Easy Anti-Cheat telling me that I am now “untrusted” and can’t save my progress.
I have followed every recommended troubleshooting step (other than a full re-install of Windows) up to and including:
Verifying game files in Steam (multiple times)
A full re-install of the game.
Re-installing and repairing Easy Anti-Cheat
Completely disabling all firewalls and antivirus protection (I only use Windows Defender), as well as manually setting up exceptions.
Playing on both a strict NAT type and DMZ type connection.
Checking both HD and Ram for errors (and making sure the Ram sticks were both running at the same rate)
Confirming that Windows and my GPU have the latest updates installed.
Disabling the API that runs the lights on my gaming keyboard.
The issue almost always happens when I try and load into a level, but once or twice has happened mid-game. Doesn’t matter if I’m playing online or solo. This is getting really old really fast. I want to enjoy this game, and I do like what I’ve been able to experience so far. From what I’ve seen on the forums though, the blame is almost always placed on the user’s end (failing hard drive, faulty ram, etc.). Though I do find it odd that so many people have reported the exact same issue with this game specifically. As well as the fact that I have literally 130 other games installed that are of comparable, or greater demand on system resources that all run perfectly fine. It’s only Vermintide 2 that I’ve had problems with. I’ve been a PC gamer since the 90’s, and did technical support for a major video game publisher for over 5 years, so I’m not exactly new to trying to figure these things out.
That being said, I think I’ve reached a dead-end with this game. Systems specs posted below in the hope that someone can help me get this game running without blaming my hardware for being the cause (or at least without a detailed explanation as to why).
