Since the installation of the 3.01 patch, I've experienced fairly frequent CTDs when saving. For the most part, this has happened immediately after area load, but it's happened a few times when quicksaving as well. There appears to be no rhyme or reason to the crashes and no patterns in terms of area or the like.

 

I've uploaded a .zip file containing the error folder's contents to this post. A link to my most recent successful save is here: https://www.dropbox....1.savegame?dl=0

 

I'm running PoE from an SSD on Windows 10 x64, with an AMD FX-6100 processor and 16 gigs of RAM. GPU is an Nvidia GTX 960.

Hey Pop,

 

Have you tried verifying your game cache yet? I saw quite a bit of errors in your log, doing so might resolve your issue. In your Steam Library, right click Pillars of Eternity > Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Cache. 

 

Let me know how it goes!

Looks like there were indeed some files to be replaced. I haven't had a CTD in the last few days but on two occasions I had area load hiccups - by which I mean, I'll move from one area to another and instead of getting a CTD, the game will revert to the title screen. The latest save on file will be the last one before moving between areas. Seems like a different issue and one that isn't as frequently or severely irritating.

Hey Pop,

 

Could you please upload that save and a new output log when the game kicks you to the main menu? 

 

Thanks.

Kicked me going from Elm's Reach to Hearthsong. Don't know if it can be replicated, but here's the save: https://www.dropbox....2.savegame?dl=0

 

Output file is attached.
