I have everything updated and have verified the game. There was a bug the same a while back and it was when a certain situation happened in battle, and seeing how it always happens when in battle I would imagine the bug is of the same type.
I hear you but verifying should do the same thing. Internet speed is not all that good so I didn’t really want to go through the whole process again. Maybe if I delete related files, configs and such. Sometime some of these are left over from old versions and can cause issues.
Would be nice if a dev could point me into the right direction.
Unfortunately not, it has been reported several times that the launcher is apparently unable to properly verify games. Could be a problem with the launcher itself, I don’t know if that also applies to other Epic games, I only have two there. What I do know, however, is that there are often problems with the cloud-based savegames, also with my other Epic game, and there too the launcher is often blamed for it (This is why I completely deactivated cloud saving in both games)
I don’t want to defend anyone here, it could just as well be that the developers simply implement some things incorrectly.
I have removed the snapshot folder I found in app/data so let’s see if it now crashes. There could be some sort of cache files in the game folder itself that needs deleting but I can’t find anything obvious.
So far game is stable. I have gone through the sort of tutorial part without incident. Before it was crashing/restarting on every sitting.
I think what might have done the trick was deleting the files in user/appdata and let the game re-write them.
For the first time for a long time starting a new game took me to the tutorial, also, believe it or not the graphics look much sharper than they use to, not to mention I have not had a alien one-shot me so far.
I have gave the game exceptions with my AV and firewall software.
I had thought I had fixed it but after 4 hours of play it reset my computer again. It always happens when in combat.
I’m at a loss. I play games like the division 2, horizon new dawn, death stranding, Xcom 2 and many more games without issue so I can’t see it being a power problem (1200watt), and it’s not a heat problem as everything runs cool.
Crashing is one thing but to reset my computer is another. I have even tried 3 different set’s of Nvidia drivers in case it’s was those.
I don’t know what to try next apart from reinstalling the game as Voland suggests.
Looks like I am going to have to reinstall then, nothing else I can try. I think when the time comes I am going to have to pick it up on GoG or Steam. I’m a little suspicious that it might be something to do with the Epic launcher.
Something strange happened after I deleted those files from appdata and started a new game. I was able to kill those mad rouge soldiers in one shot. Before it took multiple shots and their return fire would kill me. The whole game felt easier and I was getting through missions without taking damage.
Also it was the first time it took me through the tutorial on a new game.
I am going to un install and delete everything to do with the game and re-install . If that doesn’t do it then it looks like I’m ******.
There is something very strange going on with PP or maybe the Epic launcher.
I have had PP installed for ages updated, has all but one DLC ticked and been verified. When ever I started a new game (on easy) I got the same missions in order and easy was more like nightmare.
Yesterday I deleted all of the files associated with the game from appdata. When I then started a new game I was getting random missions and easy was very easy.
Today I re-installed PP and again I am getting random missions with the usual appearing but not in order and easy is super easy. I am flying through the mission. Still to early to know if I have fixed the crashes. But isn’t that weird? It’s as if I am playing a new game.
