[Bug] - Game hangs

Post by Hawkeye » September 21st, 2018, 11:32 am

So I'm in Kylearan's Tower.
I have cleared the room to the left (the one with the swinging axes.
In the room to the right I encounter a kind of wizard and a couple of the small guys.
Every time the wizard uses Managar's Mind Jab, the game freezes and I have to use the Task Manager to shut it down.

Anyone else with that problem?

I am getting similar bugs whenever an enemy mage casts a spell. However, I get a black screen and my video card doesn't respond (No Signal Input). Only solution so far is a restart of the computer. Graphics options are set to 'medium', but it seems to happen on any setting. Started playing on 'Ultra' and got the bug, so dropped the setting, but still getting it.

Update:

I'm now in the final fight in Kylearan's Tower (worked around the encounter by re-shoveling my party and quickly killing the mage) and I don't think there is a way to prevent the fight-boss from using Mangar's Mind Jab - and yes, as soon as that spell hits, the game freezes.

Having the exact same issue on Mangar when he uses Mind Jab. Game stutters, then freezes, and subsequently times out and crashes. Cannot progress :\

Updating driver to adrenalin edition 18.9.2 0 got me past this freeze. Hopefully it does the same for you.

I have started a new game and this seems to have fixed the issue (I didn't change anything, though, so I can't suggest anything except for, well, perhaps try a new game - yeah, probably not what anyone with that issue wants to hear)

I am not yet in the Mangar fight yet, but have recieved several Mangar's Mind Jabs during "lesser" fights without problems.

FWIW I never had issues with any other Mind Jabs prior to that Mangar fight, I think it just triggered the right set of effects to crash the video driver. Hope the new game+ goes better :D

Game hangs in inventory for me, just had it again. Thought they fixed that in first patch.

Just doing a bit of crafting, then mousepointer freezes, audio continues, and you cannot do anything except kill it in task manager

Just FYI - we're aware of the Mind Jab bug and are working on a fix.
