Issue Description:
Random crashes, normally within the first few minutes of a mission, as soon as things become a little “busy”. Possibly worsened by bloom effects, as I’ve noticed the appearance of a “beast of nurgle” or “flamer” is a guaranteed instant crash.

Be aware that this issue was not an issue on launch. I played for some hours on the first evening, at least 7 missions completed, possibly more. It was the next morning the issue appeared, and I have been unable to complete a mission since. I updated my nvidia GPU drivers to the latest version after the first evening, which may be the cause of the issue.

Error Description:
Instant crash. I confirm the server does realise I am offline, as my group reports I am replaced by a bot. crash dump reporter pops up, game has shutdown. However, approximately half of the crash occurrences do not result in a proper termination of the game process. I cannot find the game in task manager either, so I am forced to entirely shut down the system, as steam thinks it is still running. As I say, this is only 50 percent of the time. the rest of the time, it just shuts down without issue and results in the crash reporter tool popping up.
Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Play any mission, applies as both ogryn and zealot/preacher
  2. Engage first swarm of enemies, containing at least one special enemy.
  3. Crash

Steps Taken to attempt resolution:
disabled RTX features
disabled DLSS
Reduced worker thread count from 62 to 1
Switched to Fullscreen
Lowered graphics to lowest possible settings
ensured nvidia drivers were latest and greatest - possibly the cause of my issues, as the original evening (when the game functioned correctly) i had failed to do this

Looking in to it! :slight_smile:

You don’t need to worry about submitting each console log here, everything submitted via the crash reporter is automatically uploaded to us - no other action required!

can we expect any proper resolution any time soon? the fact this has now been going on for 7 days has me seriously concerned

As it stands this technical ineptitude is going to lose you most of your pre-orders, my own included. You’ve failed to fix the issue, you’ve failed to communicate what on earth is causing the random crashes beyond “gpu related” (probably one of the least helpful answers you could have given), and NONE of the recommended workarounds are effective.

Will this be fixed within the next 24 hours? or do i give up and cancel my order? every other person i intended to play this game with has either got the same problem as me, or has progressed so far within the beta that there is little chance of playing this coop game cooperatively with them

I have testet all suggestions Here in the Forum and No Hope to fix the Crashes. 12 hours Playtime and only 1 Level one Charakter . I can Not finish one damn Mission. It s annoying. My Friends have all refunded and my nerves are blank too.
