You appear to be running into GPU-related crashes. I recommend running through possible solutions, here:

I would, however, I have already run through them, such as reinstalling graphics driver, setting thread count to 1, disabling portrait rendering and making sure my GPU is neither overclocked or overheating.

I have also followed the steps in the general crash post, such as reinstalling the Visual C++, verifying file integrity, checking for memory errors, etc.

Nothing has produced a fix.

Im in the same boat as you, been broke for me regardless of anything they suggest, I even got a stronger new gpu, and new cpu and no changes, my post just sits and no update for days.

If you find a solution, it’d be great to hear from you.

Is there any news on when a fix might be coming? Any idea what might be causing it?

Unfortunately, crashes like this which are specific to your GPU and all of your system variables aren’t all straightforward with a catch-all fix :frowning: Your logs show a GPU hang, where it stalls and results in the crashes you’re experiencing.

I understand you’ve exhausted all of our usual solutions. If you can provide additional recent crash reports/console logs I can try escalating this with our Engine Developers; though I can’t guarantee they will have further suggestions; or alternatively I can assist with a refund. Please let me know if this is something you’d wish to do.

I desire no refund. I am sure the issue will be fixed at some point, I just wish it was sooner rather than later, of course.

I’ll try and gather some more crash reports and console logs and throw them into this thread. Hopefully they reveal some sort of pattern.

Hey! I’ve managed to catalogue some more crashes. Hope that it will help narrow down the problem!
It is important to note, that I have no problem like this with any other game in my collection. It is only Darktide that behaves in this manner.
