Hi All,

 

I managed to get past this boss fight by stepping down the resolution to 1280 x 720 in Windowed mode. The fight didnt freeze when he cracks the ice and I could scale up the resolution right after.

 

Hope this helps!

Chris

I just attempted this method and unfortunately I still get a crash.

Hello everyone,

 

I have the same problem as the people above. I even tried to lower the resolution to 1280x720 in windowed mode but nothing changed.

When the Beast of Winter cracks the ground, the game freezes, gets me to desktop and I can only hear the sound of the game before a crash report appears.

Come on guys, fix this bug so we can finish the Beast of Winter dlc and move on to Seeker, Slayer ,Survivor. :)

 

PC: Intel i7-4790k, Radeon R9 280 3GB VRAM with 18.9.3 drivers, 8GB RAM, Win7 Ultimate 64bit. Display with 1680x1050@60 Hz resolution.

I too have been experiencing this problem.  I can accept Rymrgand charm to continue, but I would rather maintain my Independence and not submit to a "gods" will.

Hello mates,

 

Good news :)

I checked the game with the latest patch (3.0.2.0027) and having the latest Radeon drivers (18.10.1) fixed the bug for me.

At last I can fight Rymrgand.

 

Thanks Obsidian :)

The bug that is causing this issue is a graphics problem related to lightning effects.

 

The same issue that freezes the game when Ryn uses a lightning bolt to destroy the bridge happens when you equip the armour Deltro's Cage, which also has a lightning effect.

 

I've tried to disable graphics as much as possible but the issue occurs with Steam updated version of POE 2 and updated Radeon drivers.

A possible workaround:

 

The quicksave function continues to work after the screen freeze. I was able to quicksave the game after Rym destroyed the bridge.

 

After force-closing and relaunching the game, I loaded the quicksave and was able to continue with the Rym fight.

 

Hopefully, this works for others.

Another possible workaround:

I tried this only once and it worked. I haven't tried it again.

 

Immediately after finishing the conversation with Rymrgand I pressed ctrl+alt+delete. The screen with options like switch user and start task manager pop up while the game continue running in the background. I waited at that screen for a bit. The the animation that crashes the game finishes while I'm at the ctrl+alt+delete screen. Then I closed the screen and switched back to the game. The game had auto paused when the combat started and I could finish the fight.

 

Hope this could be of some help.

Note that I had the same issue on a Radeon R9 280X Toxic with the 18.11.1 drivers; updating to 18.11.2 fixed it for me.

I am definitely still getting this issue on my game. 

 

If I accept the offer to have my soul ground then everything is fine, but if I don't agree to  Rymrgand's terms my game freezes the moment his fissure hits the ice bridge.  Kind of screwed up the entire choice and consequence peace of a really good DLC to the point I will skip it on my second play through. 

 

I have updated drivers as far as I am aware, I have tried the quick save spam, the 1280X780 resolution fix, and the ctrl-alt-del suggestion.   I have also uninstalled the game on steam, deleted local files (except for saves), and then re-installed the game and it still crashes so might be an issue with the save file   

 

I will email the nessacary files to you. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

nothing has helped me to pass beyond this point, tested with every AMD ATI driver:

- 18.6.1

- 18.9.1

- 18.11.1, 18.11.2...

- 18.12.1, 18.12.2...

I have even tested it with a different graphic card, with an AMD R9 280X and with a AMD R9 290.

Still the same bug, and always a BSOD crash in the ATI driver: atikmpag.sys   **Attached again the screen capture of the BSOD crash.

 

@Obsidian, I have paid for a working product and not for a crappy game, I was hoping that you had fixed it after installing all those DLCs, but even with them, everything is the same.

Lesson learnt, not gonna buy an Obsidian game again in my life, unfinished and buggy games.

I'm also getting (seemingly) random freezes while playing BOW, where everything crashes, and I have to reset my computer. The sound buzzes, and the screen turns into what looks like corduroy (solid colour, covered in vertical lines).

 

This has only been happening since I installed the latest patch update, I've had no issues at all previously.

 

It happens after about 5 minutes of play, no matter what I'm doing - fighting, exploring, or even paused in the menu.

 

I'm on Windows7, with an ATI Radeon R9 270X. I tried updating the drivers, and it made no difference. I've also tried reverifying the game files in GOG. I don't have Forgotten Sanctum installed.

 

Output_log is here.

I'm also getting this. Using a r290x Raden card, latest drivers and game is updated. Getting the blue screen crash.

 

EDIT: I mean, damn... we all know Rymrgand is a butthole but using his axe to blue screen my computer when I refuse him is a new form of blackmail.

This issue seems to be related to an error when using directx 11 which seems to be default in PoE II

I have attempted all other fixes mentioned without any luck, however i managed to find a way.

 

I tried forcing it with -force-d3d10 in steam command line arguments, didn't work howerver seems like it still uses dx11. 
 
I managed to solve my problem by installing a windows SDK (using this guide: https://steamcommuni...scn=1401340607)

(choose 10.1 where they recommend 11.1)

This did cause incredible lag however, but it did allow me to save before the fight began.

After saving you may re-enable the changes in the above link and you should be able to load the save and do the fight as it was intended.
 
There seem to be some unity command line arguments that might work as well but i have not tried them, mentioned by @fireundubh#2620 on Discord.

Managed to play through the crashes, and I'm definitely getting the Rymrgand axe-ice CTD as well. My graphics card drivers encounter an error and stop working. Managed to get past it through a mixture of the texhniques in the posts above, but I'm also still getting the every-ten-minute total-computer freezes that I have to hit the reset button to get out of.

 

My computer is high-spec, and I had absolutely no issues before Patch 4.0.1.0041. It's definitely an ATI Radeon R9 series issue, looks like.
