I cannot play PoE in any manner, as of today, as any file I load from various campaign freeze and crash. In addition, I attempted to create a new game which crashed in the character creation screen. 

The crashes occur during the artwork loading screen for each level/ save file. I am bewildered, as I have already finished the game on normal, and am not sure why this would start occurring now.

Fixes attempted:
1. Verified Game Cache

2. Re-installed game

3. Various Save File Fixes seen on these  forums.

Save files after being zipped were 700 KB and too large to attach.

Any Ideas/Fixes? I am really hooked on this game and hoping to get back into it.

Thank you!




Just an addition: 

When I create a new game, it crashes right before I am able to choose a character portrait. I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I think that the output log is for that instance of a crash.

Specs for Comp attached.

I have this same issue. Game is 100% broken no matter what settings or fixes I have tried.

Just submitted a new thread on this.

Can reproduce too - MBP late 2013.


Just started happening with 1.03

Same for me. The game crashes every time I try to load a saved game. I'm using the Linux Version
