Hi all. I bought The Outer Worlds the other day and was running it fine on my R9 380. I decided I wanted to get some better performance so I bought a brand new MSI RX 590 OC. The game now runs amazingly for about 2 minutes until it crashes. The screen freezes but the audio continues, then after a few seconds the screen goes black and I'm kicked off to desktop. After the game crashes, the Radeon Adrenaline software also breaks and I have to close it through task manager. As well as this I'm occasionally getting the black screen for a few seconds when outside of games, similar to when installing the drivers but for no apparent reason. Spent all yesterday and today googling for answers, have tried the following: Reinstalling drivers Installing optional newer version of drivers Turning off windows fast startup Setting power slider to maximum (+50%) on WattMan Setting power slider to minimum (-50%) on WattMan Setting GPU to always run at max speed and voltage in WattMan (suggested by someone on youtube) Defaulting BIOS settings Plugging PC into different sockets Swapping the PSU power connectors around and probably a few more things I can't remember. Only data I can get that may link is through the performance overlay, which shows the GPU temp increasing quickly over a minute or so before the game always crashes around 60C. Some forums suggest a power issue but I have a good quality EVGA 500W power supply and never had an issue with a GTX 980 or R9 380. Any help would be much appreciated, I'm feeling a little short changed. P.S. Have tried other games - Arma 3 runs fine, PUBG runs mostly fine but has done the crash once or twice at random times. The Outer Worlds seems to be the only game that consistently crashes within 2 minutes. Thanks, Alex
I am playing on PC with the xbox game pass version. After I installed the newest Nvidia drivers that were released on 10/29/2019, my game will run for approximately 3-5 minutes until it immediately crashes/closes. I own a RTX 2080 Ti. I receive no error message or pop up upon it closing and I am returned to my desktop. I experience the same issue every time I boot the game back up. I was having no issues with the game until I installed the driver.
So, I've seen a few people discuss this in other threads, but not this exact issue. I'm not completely sure what the problem is here. Seems like a potential driver issue, but I'm not 100% on that. I have rolled my my nVidia drivers to see if that would stifle the issue, but nothing has seemed to help thus far. My current drivers are 397.64. I've made it to the character creation screen several times and every time, without fail, my game seems to crash. You can still hear the music looping, but both of my displays go black. This prompts me to do a hard reset because there is no other way to access my computer. Up until I've reached the character creation screen, everything seems to work like it should. I'm unable to upload a save file because I can't even save the game before this error occurs. Another weird fact about this, is after the hard reset, my resolution has changed to 640x480 (in black & white) and was unable to change it until I updated my computer (although I was already at the latest version of windows at the time). I'm genuinely puzzled as I've never had this issue on my computer playing any other game than PoE:II. I really would love to give this game a shot, but I can't get beyond the character creation screen. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! output_log.txt DxDiag.txt
