[0.16.51] Crash in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DSOUND.dll

Post by zytukin » Fri Oct 19, 2018 10:52 pm

Have had it happen a bunch of times over the past week. I leave the game to run while I go off to do other things and come back to find it crashed, sometimes in less then an hour.

I want to upload the save, but it's 183mb and I don't have strong enough wifi to do it at the moment. Might be able to tomorrow.

I would start by updating sound drivers, if it only crashes when left alone it could be related to a power savings mode being activated.

Thanks for the report however without a way to reproduce the crash there's nothing I can do. Additionally since you're the first person I've seen crashing related to sound on Windows I'd first look at your sound drivers/programs installed to see if there's anything unusual with them before looking at Factorios sound code.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

Sorry, forgot about this topic. Did check my drivers and everything was up to date. Seem to have solved the issue though, it never crashed if I had a movie playing and that always kept the laptop from turning off the screen.

Disabled turning off the screen in power saving and haven't had a crash since. No clue what the link is between that and the sound drivers but it seems to have worked.

Niw it just sometimes crashes when I have my laptop closed, but the game isn't running then. Overall it's a windiws issue not a game issue.
