Crash always right after making it to the beginning




The game always crashes right after I've made it to the point where I can move my character the first time. Sometimes it might crash while the first monolog is coming, sometimes I can move around for about 1-30 seconds first. I deleted the one time I made it so far I could perform a save because I thought there might be something wrong with that save file and then tried a new character, but I haven't made it so far I could perform another save game yet. I've fully reinstalled my graphics card drivers, I've reinstalled the game in Steam and have verified the cache, I've stopped every process in the backround I could, I've tried both low and high graphics (low seems to work a few more seconds than high), I've fiddled around with framerates, V-sync, resolution and full screen mode, I've tried using the game as an administrator and I've tried every other solution I've been able to find during hours of searching with Google. Alas, nothing has helped and practically I haven't been able to play past character creation. My computer should run this game with ease so I'm not sure what's wrong here. Not a single other game has had this problem before and I've ~20 games in my collection with franchises such as XCOM 2 running smoothly with high graphic settings.

Your GPU raises a bell. EVGA Precision X is not nice to PoE. Stop it.



That is sad.

The Moderator Aarik would suggest a full reinstall.


Do you have Riva Tuner, MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision X installed? They are known to cause crashes and as far as i am aware none of the patchnotes mentioned a fix.

In addition to my previous efforts I tried increasing power usage and whilst I couldn't find Precision X I found Phys X and uninstalled that. All of this resulted in another case in which a crash occurred after moving the character around for about 10 seconds. Then I tried the same with different resolution, graphics quality and framerate settings and the result was the same. I'm suspecting my GPU simply isn't compatible with this game. I'm planning on purchasing a laptop at the end of the summer with some juice in it so that I can spend my traveling times gaming, so maybe the game will eventually work on that devicethen. Thank you for your answers, too bad I have to quit dreaming playing this game still for a couple of months.
