Sorry about this - I’ve raised your crash to our database for investigation.

thank you


verified the game files on steam
reinstalled my NVidia drivers as a clean install
disabled all mods
disabled DLSS
set frame cap to 60

i’m still getting crashes every single game.

when can i expect to hear back?

I can’t see any movement on this case yet unfortunately, it can take some time to see to each crash. I’m happy to help you with a refund should you rather take that option?

I’ve spent over 200 hours in-game. So what is clear after seeing that number is that, morally, I can’t ask a refund and also, I really enjoy the game.

I just need to know what to do to fix it. it was fine before the patch and now it is unplayable. I’m crashing 2-3 times per mission.

tried experimental build. no change + I refuse to go to 1 worker thread as it runs like treacle. I’ve spent too much on my PC to play this game at 30fps

I have now also:

uninstalled and reinstalled the game
run sfc /scannow

ran the game on 60FPS with everything on the lowest setting and disabled. it crashed

done the same but with 1 worker thread. it still crashes on every mission.

i cant think of a single thing else to do. since the patch it’s unplayable

I’ve sent this directly to our Engine Developers, with the hope that they can help us out.

thank you.

I had a thought and I’m now going to remove all weapon trinkets and skins and avatar cosmetics.

after that I honestly cant think of anything else.

im actually embarressed to admit this, but i havent tried to roll back my nvidia driver yet. ill try that this evening

No Change with an NVidia driver that is 3 releases from current. I’m 100% confident this driver was in place before the patch.

same issue. although I only crashed once during the last mission…

Do you use voice chat? We suspect the issue is something to do with that.

no sorry. no voice chat.

but I did upgrade from a 3080 to a 4080 today and i havent had one crash.

maybe the fix for everyone is to spend £1000…

Edit: day 3 and still not one crash.

I had a Founders Edition 3080 before. can only assume specifics of my hardware being incompatible with the recent patch were the cause.
