I was having issues earlier today with joining games. When I would host or attempt to join a game, the loading screen would come up, but would then go black and never join the game. I would have to ctrl/alt/del to get the game to close. After 4-5 attempts to join a game this way, the game would no longer launch properly at all.
Now when I attempt to launch the game, the into video doesn’t play properly and audio stutters. When I skip it, it delays for a long time before claiming its loading Taal’s keep. I’ve waited upwards of 10 minutes for the keep to load, and it never does. I have to close the game through task manager, end task. This creates a crash report, which is expected from manually ending the task.
I have had no issues playing since WoM released (the week before official release). No additional software or hardware changes have occurred.
So far I have:
- Repaired EAC
- Performed clean uninstall/reinstall of latest nvidia drivers
- Verified game file integrity through steam
- Verified that steam is fully up to date
- Multiple reboots of windows
- rebuilt my user_settings.config file
- attempted to launch the game in dx12
Windows 10 Pro, 64bit
AMD Ryzen 5 3600x
Nvidia Geforce 1660ti (431.60 drivers after update)
I have deleted the game and will be re-downloading it overnight to see if this has any impact.
