Game crashes immediately upon loading into missions

Checking crash logs, the issue seems to have started on on 11/27, just from the sheer number of crashes starting from that point. While crashing occured before that point, it was only after playing the game for a decent amount of time, and never consistent. After the aforementioned date, however, the game crashes Consistently immediately upon loading into a mission.

Issue Description:
FPS stays around 60-100 in the Hub area, and before recent updates (causing the crashing to start) I ran at 30+ during hordes. However, after one of the more recent updates, the game immediately crashes any time I load into a mission, regardless of whether it’s in-progress or a new lobby.

Attempted Solutions:
Decreasing thread count to various levels, all the way down to 1. adjusted multiple settings with no effect. Capping framerate. Oftentimes trying several of these fixes (Mainly changing the thread count) after each update

Please let me know If I can provide any additional info to help improve performance

An update: I’ve just recently gotten the game to work again by fully reinstalling, including manually deleting %appdata%, and any files left behind after uninstall, and then reinstalling afterwards. And just to emphasize, I have already reinstalled at least once before now without clearing files left after uninstall, to no effect.

If you’ve been having similar issues, consider deleting the darktide appdata folder (C:\Users<user>\AppData\Roaming\Fatshark\Darktide) and reinstalling from there.

Sorry I missed this, if you encounter any other crashes please be sure to post them in Technical Support - I’ve moved this over.

Thank you for sharing your workaround with us!
