Game crashes when opening settings online

Game Version:

  • Build ((2.7.4511863))


When in an online game, when a setting is changed and applied, the entire game crashes. I have seen it happen when changing the “Play in window” option as well as volume control for sound and music.

Reproduction Steps:

  1. Launch an online game (I’ve seen it happen in 6 person scenarios most often)
  2. Pause and change a setting then apply
  3. Game will sometimes crash

In Event Viewer, this event is produced:

Maybe you are running the steam in compatibility mode.
Also, did you check the files integriti?

Several crashes are fixed in the 2.8 beta, please ping if you are still getting this.
