So about that crash to desktop...

Recommended Posts


Like a lot of people I've had a crash to desktop just as soon as I launch the game. It starts, goes black screen and closes just after it.

I had this log coming out:

Fatal error!

As you can imagine, not really useful. I got into a lot of topics/threads listing all kinds of generic solves which obviously didn't work.

I got to this page : pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/The_Outer_Worlds

The part saying how to remove the start up videos was enough for the game to finally start. So while it will not solve all crashes, this might help someone. And if not, just follow the rest of the page.

My understanding is that I miss some codec that would be part of the Windows Media Pack (I have a Pro "N" version of windows 10 or something, which comes without it). But modyifing the config file at least got the game to start. Still I'm expecting I might have more crashes later.
