Crashing During Launch after Outcast Engineer Cinematic

So, I haven’t played vermintide 2 in a while and a friend recently asked me to join him after getting the game. I opened it and started trying to play the game, but it was crashes a second after the Outcast Engineer cinematic. I tried reinstalling, looking for certain files to delete after looking around on the website (I had none of the files, so everything is the same as it was), and then verified the files through steam after some suggestions from the subreddit for Vermintide. The first GUID: copy was before I had verified and the second is after. I don’t know if this changes anything, but I thought to make sure.

Hi @DoctorEB1,

Looking at your console logs, your default GPU set is Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630 which is likely resulting in these crashes as it cannot handle the demand.

Do you have another GPU that it should be detecting?

If so, you can follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the desktop and select the ‘NVIDIA Control Panel’
  2. Navigate to ‘Manage 3D Settings’ > ‘Program Settings’
  3. Locate Steam within the list of programs
  4. Within the ‘Select the preferred graphics processor for this program:’ dropdown, choose the NVIDIA GPU
  5. Then locate Vermintide 2 within the list of programs, and repeat the above step
  • For AMD GPUs: Ensure both Steam and Vermintide 2 are set to use your dedicated GPU within the Radeon Settings by:
  1. Right-click the desktop and select ‘Radeon Settings’
  2. Navigate to ‘Preferences’ > ‘Additional Settings’ > ‘Power’ > ‘Switchable Graphics’ > ‘Application Settings’
  3. Locate Steam within the list of programs
  4. In the ‘Graphics Settings’ column, assign the ‘High Performance’ profile
  5. Then locate Vermintide 2 within the list of programs, and repeat the above step
  • For Windows 10 users:
  1. Navigate to ‘Settings’ > ‘System’ > ‘Display’
  2. Select ‘Graphics Settings’
  3. Select the ‘Browse’ button and locate the Vermintide 2 executable (Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Warhammer Vermintide 2\binaries)
  4. Select the ‘Options’ button
  5. Choose ‘High performance’ and save your changes
