Frequent Crashing in NWN:EE

Is anyone else seeing frequent, repeatable crashes in EE, typically on creature spawns? I just finished re-building my gaming rig, so I haven’t been able to play for a few weeks. I’ve updated to 8166 on Steam and 8170 on the BD Client, and I’m seeing the same thing.

Most of the time this involves walking onto an encounter trigger. As soon as it fires, the game crashes hard. Not every spawn seems to trigger it, and I’ve seen it in a couple of instances where I don’t think there is or could be a spawn happening. In the cases where it does happen, though, it’s 100% repeatable.

The primary differences between my last tests a few weeks ago (when I didn’t see this) and now are that I’m running with different hardware: a GTX 1060 video card and a new CPU, and system SSD. NVidia driver is 397.31.

Maybe crashes are related to a bad GTX 1060 graphic driver.

CaveGnome, thanks. That certainly looks like a likely explanation. I’ll try it out and report back later.

8170 has a vfx-related crash bug stemming from the recent material shader changes. This is fixed in 8171 (not shipped yet).

If it crashes on 8166 and isn’t the GPU driver, please report it - ideally with a save game to repro it … … :slight_smile:

I’ve been busy this week, but should be able to get to it over the weekend.

@niv I finally had a chance to test this with 8172. It’s fixed. :slight_smile:
