Would you mind posting your dxdiag file so we can look to see if your hardware or software is causing the issue?

Same problem here.
I had only rare stuttering with the old patch and rare desyncs but now the game crashes (100% times ) in loading and i can’t play it anymore both SP and MP .

And i cant post my dxdiag 'cause im a new user… 000

DxDiag.txt (34.7 KB)

Same for me.
New users cannot upload DxDiag.txt


Same for me, was working perfectly before new patch now crashes every time just before map loads.


Same thing here!!! Game crashes before loading the Graphics test!

Nice update before the holidays, 10/10.

Same here…!
It crashes right after the loading Screen, when starting a Game or using the Benchmark-Tool.

What i see for now, is that we all still use Windows 7…!!

Believe my game suffers from the same bug:

edit: Reinstalling seeeeeems to have fix the issue for me.

Well am using Windows 10 and my game is crashing after launch

hi everyone

some here game crash while i playing

Same issue here. Running win 10 thru parallels 15.

Same for me, game crashes when loading new game, on Windows 7. Before update, the game was working fine. After update, crashes 100% of the times.

crashing whenever i accept an invite send an invite and whenever i go into the clan tab, playing on microsoft not steam, after update i got this problem

I can also not play the game anymore. THANK YOU FOR THE UPDATE.

For me, the game is rather frequently crashing upon hitting the next age.

Same here, crashing upon reaching the castle age. This happened on the build v.34205, which was a hotfix, that was supposed to fix the crashes…This was a first crash and I never crashed before.
