Crash to desktop in mid skirmish, no error messages given

Game Version:

  • Build 101.101.35584.04714640
  • Steam version


The crash in question has so far occurred in single player skirmishes, though I have not tried to do it outside of 1v1 games on Arabia; I have also sporadically encountered it on campaign missions. I do not play multiplayer so I cannot tell if it happens there. The game provides no error messages when the crash occurs.

No discernible cause for the issue, so I’m stumped on how to fix it. It seems to occur almost at random.
