Crash to Desktop

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

 

I am new to the CM series, and as my first victim I got CMBN with all modules. Sad thing is, that it Crashes almost constantly within an hour after starting the game. It happened in multiple campaigns. I can not reproduce the issue at will. Does the game have any log files? Or is it a known issue?

My specs are Win10 /16 GB Ram/GTX 1080/ I7 7700K

There were some topics about this a while ago so search the forum. IIRC it could be helped by avoiding some specific graphics setting so check those threads out.

Yep, somewhat difficult to nail down when it will crash, but it was discussed awhile back. I thought it was fixed with the recent patches, but I still occasionally get the crash myself. 

Turning off shaders setting does stop the crashes completely for me as far as I know. I have not done any extensive testing and sometimes my playtime can be anywhere from one to three hours.

There was a discussion about rolling back to a certain Nvidia driver. I can't remember the exact driver version but it was prior to 2019 I believe. Due to my brain wanting things to stay up to date, I could not stay rolled back forever.

Cheers!

My system specs are similar to yours (i7-8700, GTX1080, 32GB RAM, Win10) and I began experiencing regular crashes after 30-40 min. of play.  I resolved the issue by rolling back from the latest Nvidia driver to version 388.71 as noted in this thread.

If you are comfortable uninstalling/installing video drivers and don't mind using an older version, you may want to give it a shot.  If you go this route, be aware - Windows will try to update the old driver, which will potentially resume the crashes.
