Crash when transitioning from starting area.





I'm using the GOG version of PoE. When transitioning from the starting area just after the storm occurs the game crashes after the short text event insofar as the loading cursor appears and nothing more happens (you can still move it around on the black screen though). After this point clicking anywhere in the game brings up a message that PoE.exe is non-responsive. I can repeat the issue and can't seem to create a save file when in the starting area (clicking on save does nothing). Is there much I can do other than wait for a patch? Will an error log have been generated for this event and if so where can I find it to post here? I've looked in the PoE folder and can't seem to find anything. 


I'm running:

Windows 8.1 x64

8gb of RAM

AMD FX6300

AMD 5770

Hello, I'm having this exact problem as well.


My specs:

Win 8.1


Intel i7-4790

Nvidia GTX760


Here is the complete log:



I think the error is below this line:


-------- LEVEL LOAD COMPLETE -------- Level = AR_0703_Ruin_Exterior.



Your error starts much earlier :

It is odd because I'm using the Steam version here and there is no Mono redist file.

I've got the VCRedist ones, as well as DirectX, but no sign of Mono.



Note however, my directory structure :








There is also a file :



Check that you have these files and directory structure.



If not, either the GoG and Steam versions differ in some way or another, or your install derped and you'll want to try uninstalling and reinstalling the game.
