Game crashing on launch

Post by dirty dan »

Game was working perfectly fine a few days ago, restarted my computer and now I can't even play the game at all. My drivers are up to date, and I have restarted my pc multiple times. Every now and then I can at least open my save and walk around for about 15 seconds, but it inevitably crashes anyway.

Originally, I was getting an error saying the graphics card was reset or removed. I tried forcing the game to run OpenGL, and I get a new error: OpenGL runs out of memory, and freezes my pc entirely.

Of course, I expected the game to not crash.

I have been searching the web and I have tried every solution I have found, and nothing has worked yet. Hopefully something can help me out here. I have no clue why this starting happening out of the blue.

Edit: Got a GL out of memory error. Logs attached below.

I believe your graphics card is simply diying.

Perhaps. Is there a software I can run to check?

With what you have tried I'd already be confident, maybe it could be the mainboard or psu failing but that seems unlikely. If you want to be sure, test the card in a different system.

It seems I fixed my issue somehow. I had my friend host a server instead for multiplayer, and everything has been working perfectly fine. I have no clue why this worked, but I'll take it.
