KNOWN ISSUE: Crashing at Random Due to GPU-Related Errors

So far this experimental build seems to be working great for me.

I’ve had crashes from day 1, and they seem to have stopped since I’ve started using this build 3 or 4 days ago.

Still doesn’t work. Waited ages for the updates and updated my drivers. Tried the ‘Experimental’ idea. Just beyond disappointed. Another refund. AGAIN. I guess ill have to wait 15years till you bring it out on console and then wait another 15years for that to get updates etc. What a shame

This branch mostly resolved the random gpu crashes for me. Default worker thread count. I had only one gpu crash happen in last 3 days when it used to crash ~1/h and up to 4x a mission. I still get the deadlock ‘crash’ when loading with textures on high.

Hi Solun. You are on a very old driver (dec 2022), and something seems to go wrong with the shader cache for you. I would suggest that you firstly update your driver and then erase everything in C:\Users<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Fatshark\Darktide. Or if you want to keep your settings, only erase the files ending with .pso_lib and .hans. Then run the game again.

I hope that the experimental changes get merged to the main branch soon so that I can enjoy avatars again.

No improvemend for me. First level load with the experimental beta → directly chrashed to desktop. No problems with other games

Still have constant crashes. I was able to play 2 matches with one crash. After the third, I crashed and now unable to even get back in. Crashing on loading screen. Completely unplayable in both experimental and not.

I am currently having the same issues after loading with toon it crashes sometimes it works sometimes it wont load I am using a new Intel ARC 770 GPU

I have played about 30 games in the experimental branch. Had about 5-6 crashes where I used to have a crash every 1-2 games. Definitely an improvement.

I can’t even finish a mission due to crashing. I’ve crashed at least 12 times per mission maybe more. I can’t enter back into the mission sometimes.

still crashes 12 times or so in a mission but now with visual glitches

I am getting frequent crashes since the last update to the point where I can barely play.

It was fine for the first couple hours after I updated the game, then I crashed out of the same mission 3 times. Gave up and tried to play again a day later and was crashing in the Mourningstar within a minute or two of logging in.

Did a clean install of my GPU drivers and switched to experimental build. Capped FPS to 60. I was able to make it into a game but it would still crash a few minutes in.

Cleared my %appdata% folder. Played a game the whole way through only for it to crash on the end screen!

I have played since the closed beta and never had much of an issue so I dont think its related to my pc.

For reference I have an RTX 2060, i5 10600K

Hello Fatshark!

After installing the experimental branch, my game seems to have stopped crashing. The stability of my frames also improved. The GPU I use is a Gigabyte RTX 3060 Ti. The only problem i’m experiencing is the portraits in game only being a black void. I have read that other people are experiencing this problem. I hope this info helps :slight_smile:

Have you replicated the crashes internally, or are you still dependant on crash reports? I wanna get into Darktide with a friend, but the crashes are a deal breaker.

Running an MSI 3080 Suprim X with 1915 mhz @ 950mv. Coupled with an R9 3900x.

Still running experimental build (since before patch 5). Crashes have dramatically increased in frequency since the patch. Idk what happened, but it definitely was not a fix.


No crashes with the experimental build for 10 days. I try to rise graphic options, no crash. Next stage, rise up CPU threads.

Somes IU issues (portraits, …) but no care, i’ts an improvement.

Still crashing on my end even with the experimental build set up and running. Tried to lower working threads to below 4 and have tweaked various graphical settings to close to minimum.
