Game Version:

  • Build 34223 (Steam)

Issue:

Game crashes randomly whether its 1v1 or multiplayer. No specific repro steps as crashes are happening at random events.

From dump analysis, somewhere we are overflowing stack (should be recent change, didn’t used to happen with initial release)

Thank you for all the detailed information! I have attached it to our tracking bug so the team can take a look and see what they can uncover.

Thanks again!

It looks like your report is from the previous build. Are you still encountering this crash (likely around the Age-up transition) in the current build (34397)?

Is there any additional information you can provide about the crash? Would you mind attaching or linking to a copy of your dxdiag.txt report so we can pass it along to the team?

ALSO: If you are STILL encountering the crash reliably, I’ve been asked to one thing that will help the team:

  • A recording of the crash if you have one. I know this is not always possible, but if you happen to catch it on OBS, please send us a link.

Whether you have a YouTube link or a stream VOD, send it my way and I’ll make sure it gets to the team!

Both the dxdiag.txt and the crash video

report and the crash video

I start the game through steam and the game starts but after a few seconds into the game screen it just crashes

Hey there! It looks like filebin is having issues. Would you mind storing and sharing a link from a Google Drive or OneDrive folder so we can download the files?

Just let me know if you need anything else. I have bought this game 5 times on steam now after refunds and repurchase. I have a very capable laptop with i7 and 1070gtx 8gb vram installed. The installed memory on my computer is 16gb. I just want to play this game so bad with friends and its very frustrating to see this game crash everytime i try to play. Kindly help!

I`m having the same issue, it started just today. Bought the game on steam on release and been playing since then without a single issue (was playing mainly campaign) and i loved it
Today i decided to try creating a scenario, and the nightmare begins just when i am ready to start playing.
It also seem that all my settings changed, like graphics going low, language changed…
veeeeeryyyyyyy weird, first time i experienced this on a game
Please fix this

game just close to desktop after 1 min in game

Please do share event viewer logs and dmp files. This will help us in fixing the issue

where do i find the dump files?

Since last update, crashes are not happening for me.

For my buddy, it’s always crashing at the start of the match up

Try signing out of your Xbox live account then try. Surprisingly it worked for me. No more crashes

I guess you are right. Seeing the same from dump files. Somewhere Xbox service initializing is failing

The game still crashing for my friend after few mins of game start (<3 mins)

  1. Tested with online play
  2. Tested with AI

Crash always happens and before (3m) and surprisingly no dmp files no event viewer logs
