Game Crash after choosing character

Post game update: Game crashes to desktop, no crash reporter, during the load screen after choosing a character. This only started happening after the latest update. Verified files and tried disabling AV, no luck.

Here are the console logs for the last 4 times it happened:

All of these console logs seem to share this line in common at the end:
[Lua] ERROR [ItemPackage] Unable to find item content/items/characters/player/human/cine_props/bonesaw_01

Here’s an extra console log where the same crash happened before getting to the character select screen:

It looks like you’re running driver version 522.25

Please update to the latest nvidia drivers 526.98

Also what anti-virus are you running?

I updated drivers to the latest mentioned, deleted the \appdata\roaming\Fatshark folder to rebuild shaders, still having the same problem:

The AV is kaspersky

3rd PC restart seems to have fixed the issue? I’m able to load into the Mourningstar now

Glad to hear that. It looks like there was an issue communicating with the backend, which has seemingly straightened itself out. Let us know if you run into this again!
