There was a nod awhile back, and it’s the last update/acknowledgement we have:
They don’t know why this is happening and they can’t even reproduce it. Why it is difficult to install Windows 11 22H2 on one of their machines is beyond me, since this is the fastest way to see the crashes.
So they’re flying blind relying on crash dumps, hoping one of their changes reduces the crash reports instead of verifying on their own hardware.
It also crashes on windows 10.
I’m not sure why they don’t just drop everything and focus on this issue only as it was apparently their number 1 priority and probably one of the main issues a lot of users simply gave up.
After not playing for a while, I saw the new patch, manually upgraded windows 11 to 22H2 , I did order a new set of Trident Z5 RGB Ram 64GB 2x32GB 5600mhz CL28 with XMP1 fully on and my OC 5Ghz 12900K, I didn’t touch the GPU left that alone for this game, Kept the recommended Graphics settings except changed the Res to 3840x1600 because I just can’t go back to 1440p, so far little to no crashes in a while, had a few crashes to the desktop, but i can say a lot better than before, now I do run ISLC just keep it minimized and the settings default, there is still cases of FPS drop or stutter on loading screens or in the ship heading to a mission which is weird but in game is fine, not sure what worked but it is a step further into improving.
Out of the about 2 months of release I’ve had 3 weeks of decent gaming. That was in the previous patch 1.0.20 with the experimental build. Now since 1.0.22 and it’s hot fix all the crashes since beta are back.
I’m not even going to produce a crash file since you have a crap ton of identical logs here. I’ll probably just stop playing. Which seems to be the case for a large number of other players too.
Thanks Fatshark for VT 1 and 2, even with some issues they were fantastic games. This one has potential but if I can’t play without crashing I’ll just not play. Thanks for all the fish.
This game puts an abnormal amount of strain on my GPU. Capping my frame rate or reducing my clock speed solves the issue. My rx 6900 xt is stable at 2800 mhz core in every other game, including new games. In this game it is stable at 2700 mhz core. So the stability is still broken 60 days after release. It is insane this game got released in this state.
I have tried so very hard to enjoy this game which i do but the Crashing has gotten worse, ive tried EVERYTHING.
The exact Error i get as shown by Event viewer is as follows: Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted .
Booted into Safe mode, used Display Driver uninstaller.
Booted back into Safe mode, updated to latest Nvidia Driver.
Checked Windows 11 for updates, updated Windows 11 if needed.
Updated Corsairs ICUE if needed.
Used Driver Easy to update any stuff that isnt updated Via Windows update.
limited GPU to 80% power (200w) for stability.
run literally nothing in the background only spotify.
Ive even got as for as using command prompts to check for corrupted files which it found some and replaced.
i didnt stop there i even used Memtest86 and ran my pc through 2 cycles to check for RAM issues which there were none.
I run this game at 4k Ultra/high @ 60fps perfectly fine with literally no stutters except for drop ship screen stutter which i assume most people have. ive probably crashed over 150 times since i cant play this game for more then 3 and a half hours without a crash which has recently been shortened to not even 2 hours. how can this game be allowed to be this bad is beyond me. this is the only game that i have played EVER that kills my Display Driver.
Thought i’d give it another try since you updated the experimental branch & i wasn’t surprised to find you fixed absolutely nothing.
incompetence at its finest.
How about actually fixing this crashing rather than doing some random stuff & just hoping for the best.
You need to start firing people and hiring developers who can actually do their job & diagnose issues. I’ve never known a company to let an issue this severe go on for this long and still not have a clue on how to fix it.
Surely all the thousands upon thousands of crash reports from here and the Steam forums can point you in the right direction, well one would think anyway.
You guys should be offering full refunds to everyone.
