This is my first time using this forum so I hope I am doing this correctly. I have just got POE 2 and while I am loving the game, it is almost unplayable for me. It seems that my game crashes every 10 to 15 minutes. The crashes usually happen when I either open up my inventory or search something. I can still hear the music in the background and can even hear myself selecting characters but the screen is frozen in place.


I have also gotten crashes going into new areas. I have updated my graphics drivers thinking this was the problem but alas, it still persists. I will attach my output log and crash folder. Any help would be appreciated. Please let me know if anything else is needed

Salutations Towaly,


I am glad you are enjoying the game despite the crashes. It would help greatly if you could provided your crash logs and a save file for the issue. You can find out where these files are located through the How to Report a Bug pinned forum post.

Hi all I too was suffering from Pillars constant crashes, until I moved the game to my SSD HDD, the game now no longer crashes for me. I have been suffering these issues from day 1 and tried everything to resolve it. It seems that pillars is IO sensitive in some way. The following are my drive results (winsat):


Original drive:


> Disk  Random 16.0 Read                       1.51 MB/s          4.0
> Disk  Sequential 64.0 Read                   102.01 MB/s          6.6
> Disk  Sequential 64.0 Write                  97.94 MB/s          6.5
> Average Read Time with Sequential Writes     5.194 ms          5.9
> Latency: 95th Percentile                     36.850 ms          2.5
> Latency: Maximum                             124.570 ms          7.6
> Average Read Time with Random Writes         10.079 ms          4.5



SSD drive:


> Disk  Random 16.0 Read                       2.83 MB/s          4.5
> Disk  Sequential 64.0 Read                   106.30 MB/s          6.7
> Disk  Sequential 64.0 Write                  125.91 MB/s          7.0
> Average Read Time with Sequential Writes     4.141 ms          6.3
> Latency: 95th Percentile                     8.521 ms          5.9
> Latency: Maximum                             18.335 ms          7.9
> Average Read Time with Random Writes         4.223 ms          6.2
