[MAJOR CRASH] Graphics Driver Crash Error since 1/3/19 update

Reyoness shared this bug 6 months ago
Solved

Hello. Since the update today, Myself and everyone on my server are constantly crashing out every 5 - 10 minutes with the warning message that our Graphics drivers have crashed due to overheating/overclocking and what not (When all our card temps and general health is fine). We all have been playing since the big release with no issue on this server until today's update.

I have the same issue, 1080ti capped at 60fps, so it is not the graphics card. Was fine prior to the patch.

this may also be on nvidias end since i got this problem as soon as i updated the drivers

3 of us all on nvidias latest drives 419.17

1080ti crashes around 20mins

1070 does not crash at all (is the host pc)

1060 crashes after a couple of minutes

Me and a few friends are also having this issue. Setting things to medium helps but it still crashes at times. i collected a few logs and ordered them. Here they are in a zip file

6 of us on a private dedicated server are experiencing this crashing issue after updating to the recent update. (All nvidia gpus)

Seems to be a rendering bug from the log

Having similar problems.

Started a server with friends 27/02/19, crashing started after the 01/03/19 update. Was running fine up until then, but now it's persistently CTD'ing after circa 5-10min in-game and blaming my GPU.


EDIT: Spelling

I have the same crashing issues since yesterday. Good to know that i am not the only one. Running a MSI GTX 970

Having the same issue, and at least 3 friends reported this crash as well.

Before the last hotfix, this wasn't happening.

photo

Yeah this issue is driving me crazy. About 50+ of these crashes this weekend since the update. Can we roll back a version please?

Me and 6 friends are ALL having this issue since the survival update. All on latest nvidia drivers as far as I know (419.17)

Dmp and log files + dxdiag in .rar file.

In case you cant read .rar files

Also updated drivers. Same issue. This has been going on since yesterdays update. Over 900 hours played and first time seeing this bug. Crash happens to EVERYONE on my dedi server at the same time

photo
2

Same issue, CTD every few minutes. I've tried deleting the shader cache folders, uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, clean install of the game and verifying files but nothing has helped.

photo

Same here.The Card runs fine at 45-50°C (1050ti)

But its still crashes for all 6 of us (Only in MP)

Yes, this is what i have also experienced. I wanted to get my friends into Space Engineers and this is the bug they were experiencing.

Sadly I don't think it's going to be easy now to convince them to come back even if it does get fixed. Which is a shame, I was really enjoying this game. Don't worry I'll keep trying (well once this is fixed)


I do think the wording for the bug popup was a bit misleading. No GPU was above 70C and we were all on the laster NVIDIA drivers (as of Sat 2nd March 19).


Looking forward to seeing this fixed before I buy

Heard of lots of people having this problem on our server discord. I've had similar issues myself, although in that case the GPU temps reached 80 C...

photo

So, it takes a good 5 minutes AT LEAST off peak and upto 30minutes at busy times to actually get onto a server because there is only 16 slots (which isnt a problem really) but when I crash 5+ a day then to wait to log back in it gets a little frustrating.... Any response???

RTX 2080, I had quite the laugh when it said it was overheating. The bloody thing is water cooled!

Hi guys,

thanks for your reports. We are working on it.

Have a dedicated server.

It keeps on crashing with with this error at random intervals. all from 2 minutes to 2 hours

Happens to all people i'm playing with, Different cards.

I have GXT 690. The others (that I know of) have GTX 690, 1050, 1060 and 1080.

Same error for all of us at totally random intervals.

Hi Phyrino,

new hotfix 1.189.041 should help. Please let us know if it is ok or not.

Kind Regards

It worked for a while.

after 1h and 20 minutes I got that the program was not responding and then the same error message and crash to desktop.

photo
1

Played another hour and a half with no crashes.

The two I played with today suffered no crashes. So it seems to be (mostly) fixed.

photo
1

Had this issue once before 1.189.041 (lucky me I guess)

After patch, my first time joining server the graphics card freezes my entire computer.... so I guess... worse?

photo

Played the majority of the evening yesterday after the hotfix without a single crash or issue. Gonna give it another session before I give it a verdict just to be a bit more certain.

photo

Today I had one crash after 10 minutes and one after 90 minutes.

This is likely not actually a gfx crash. I was getting this kind of crash report when testing a mod. In MY case it turned out I had a bad copy/paste in my planet file that removed a < from the middle of the file. Why this translated into a gfx crash is likely because the process that depended on that file loading is where the crash happened, when it should have occured in the object serializer.

photo

I am still having this issue. Once it happens a single time it then happens within a few seconds of running a game.

photo

It didn't feel like a graphic error to us.

But the server we are running is a vanilla.

no mods, no experimental mode.


But it seems to be fixed.

no crashes for the last two days.

Well done Keen!

I Still have this Issue together with a Friend. Im running a GTX 760Ti with newest drivers. Even did a fresh install. Im also underclocking it and not even reaching 80 Degrees. A friend of mine is having the same problem

photo
1

Do you play with mods? If so, try to play without a bit. Just to make sure it's not one of them that's messing with you.

now I play without experimental mode. Just to troubleshoot the problem and the error has disappeared.


Then add one mod at a time and try it out.

hope that fixes it.

Since the last patch, It is still happening, Its tries to suggest I'm running out of memory and my gpu is overheating, Neither of which are true. gpu load is around 30-40 percent on high on my 1080ti and I have 32gb of ram, this is preventing me from playing at all as it happens on loading any world, I used to run Space Engineers on ultra with no issues at all. I dont use mods and it happens on fresh worlds


Please get this fixed,

Mine displays this message on startup, i can't even get into the menu. Gforce 980 and temperatures around 40°C.

Hello, I can't even start SE, says I need to apply windows updates and graphics drivers which I did update, is this issue connected with this topic?

photo

I am experiencing a similar error on an AMD setup running an 8gb 590. It appears to happen within about 10 minutes of loading a world. The actual error message in-game is that my graphics card is overheating (it's not). Memory leak or garbage collection problem?

Glad (in a way) that I'm not the only one getting this problem. It's also nice to see a variety of systems being effected, I was worried it was an RTX card issue.

It's a shame because i love the new release, I'd just like to be able to play for more than 20/30 minutes at a time.

photo

I have the same problem with graphics card AMD RX580 game will not allow update. return to the old version of the driver then functional

photo

I believe I have the same problem on 1.189.044 version as of 3/21/2019 on Nvidia Gtx 1060 drivers updated yes.

photo

Please revisit this bug. New versions not playable, I think that this is pretty high in priority.

photo

I dont know hwy, but since testerday we are having the same problem, but just two of our team that were on an asteroid

photo

Same Issue since yesterday for me... on an Asteroid CTD every 2-5 minutes... updated drivers GTX 670

photo
1

Bought yesterday, can't even start modify my character, only setting page i can access before freezing, not even able to start the game.


My system : I7 3.2Ghz 24Gb ram Win7 64 bit SSD 500 Gb. 2 x Nvidia GTX 560 Ti in SLI dual Monitor 23" Full HD


I don't think that my system is low on resources.


Tried to low the graphic settings to the minimum, and nothing, freeze computer or restart, video driver crash, (i have the latest video drivers for my GPU, and win 7 is fully upgraded.

photo

For those who have problems even playing do what I did, revert to version 188 this is in properties of the game in steam you can select a different version under the Betas tab

photo
1

This require an urgent fix. Reverting version is just not possible when playing on a public server.

photo

I was having this exact problem consistently on my dedicated server where it was effecting all connected clients however occurred most when in battle. We figured out it was caused by the Ammo Info mod, removed that and have not had this problem even once since :) PS when it gives you a message saying "Graphics driver crash" it has nothing to do with your graphics and is a generic message for "something happened and we have no clue what". If your driver really did crash you would defiantly know about it, if you have ever booted a pc in safe mode with all drivers disabled that is what it would look like if it crashed. Gaming would be impossible

photo
1

Strange because I don't have that ammo mod, I have no mods and it was happening for me and my friend (who also has no mods). Multiple times this was happening. It is an issue with many game features crashing the game with this version. Unfortunately I or many people can't play this version because of this and I know I would definitely enjoy the more challenging changes.

Hello, Engineers!


We are really sorry some of you are still experiencing this issue.


There was a hotfix which resolved hundreds of crashes caused by issue on our side but there other issues we are aware of.


We are certain mods can cause this crash so please check if you are playing with some of them and let the authors know about it.


If you are experiencing this issue in vanilla game, it will most likely be issue with drivers which we are trying to resolve together with GPU and driver providers. (It's happening only on some GPUs/drivers.)


We apologize for any inconveniences caused by this crash and would like to thank you for cooperation.


We are closing this thread based on fixed regression. If you are still experience this, please let us know in new thread with logs and your GPU + driver info.


Kind Regards

Hey Ales what driver works with the version? Have you tested it with a certain version to know which one is stable? I have GTX1060 nvidia with drivers 419.35 there was an update with 419.67 that came out a few days ago so I will try this to see if it helps.

Hi Michael,


unfortunately I have personally never experienced this crash by myself so I can't really certainly tell..


Please when you finish trying this let me know how it went!

photo

Sure I will update you today in an hour or two Ales. Thank you very much!

** Update: I updated to graphics drivers (Nvidia 419.67 released 3/25/19) I have a GTX 1060 so far I played 2 hours and no crashing!!! I am not sure if it s gone for good but it seemed as though the driver update has at least improved something. Again 2 hours of play after updated gpu driver and no crashes! I believe the 419.65 version of the driver should help others!

Hi MIchael,


thanks for the retest!


We hope this will help more players.

Hey Ales, you guys are most welcome I love the game and I refuse to have anything hinder it. Happy Friday have fun out there!

If any of you are still crashing despite all this. It's your Discord Overlay if you have one Disable it, and that will fix the graphics driver crashing problem.

Nice catch Ambassador

photo

Remember to be on 419.67 driver version as this also fixes it. I had crashing with no discord before the update.

cant see what im typing at all

photo

anyway, im still having problems with the game after rolling back my dr

photo

i cant see what im rtyping this is really frustrating please email me nopey96@gmail.com i need help with rolling back my driver this

photo

Top right corner of the reply box is a code box, click it, by default its on and some reason it disable text. Also what do you mean having problems. It crashes for you? What is your GPU driver version?

photo
1

Workarounds... Its time for a fix. Everything at Keen is deprecating. I feels like i could do their job easily without knowing a single line of code. Also why is it so god damn hard to fix issues? Is there only 1 dev?

photo
1

Still crashing, not using Discord.

I haven't seen a crash while actually playing though. Every time it's been while the game was paused and I had been away from the computer.

So that's possibly an improvement

photo
1

I agree Hypogriph its been awhile apparently that this problem has been existing for many people, over months of time but Keen co is still streaming on twitch before making stable releases. I speak the truth and updating a gpu driver is not that hard but the game should not be like this since January (going off the title of this OP). You guys need to check the driver and just use 419.67 wicked easy to do. No crashes for me for hours on latest version when I used to crash every 30 minutes around over and over again.

photo
photo

Game is still crashing with this fault. I have latest drivers installed (419.67), no discord running.

photo
1

i have this same problem. all driver up to date i dont even have discord or apps running in the background at all but SE remains totally unplayable for me ATM

photo
1

@ Malcolm have you tried changing the in game settings to all High if possible? My settings are on high and sometimes certain settings can cause like a memory leak (GPU or RAM leak).


@ Alex what driver do you have 419.67? Check your settings too put them on high. I have no issues on this gpu driver with settings on high.


Try a new save for test. I used to crash every 15 minutes now I play for 3 hours plus and no problems. All I changed was the driver. I even use discord while playing with my friend. I also updated to 190 version of game and no problems so I firmly believe it is something with the nvidia driver not working or a setting issue.

photo

litterally done everything i can nothing works

photo
photo

Oh and no mods I dont use mods

photo
1

I had this issue aswell. I was able to temporarily fix it by changing the tdr delay to 8 in registry. however now it is happening again.

photo
4

The devs should unsolve this lol many people still have the problem... so guess what its not solved guys.

photo
5

This is NOT solved, and it's a boldfaced lie as well. The graphics driver is NOT crashing, and the graphics card is NOT overheating. My friend with a GTX 2070 with 3 freaking fans on it is getting this.

photo
1

Try going into registry editor and changing TdrDelay to 8 and TdrLevel to 3. This fixed it for me, but be careful changing registries always comes at a risk. I'd recommend looking up how to find and change these two before hand.

photo
1

For me it was the driver the minute I went to the 419.67 it was all better, Also it could be a graphics setting, I have all high settings. Medium could cause the crash. I played for 10 hours no crashes. 190 version of game now.

photo
3

I completely redownload drivers and still got the crash, it also wasn't the settings as I got 100fps at ultra until the crash. It seems as though this issue can be caused by a number of things. For me it was fixed by changing the registry.

Crazy wow hey a little help Devs yoo hoo lol.

This is NOT solved.

this issue is not resolved

photo

Apparently this is an issue with GTX cards????

photo

No, it is the same on my RTX 2060

photo
1

That's because this message is a scam meant to hide their bad code.

photo
1

Nothing is fixed, the crash still exists. But yeah Keen need months for fixing a gamebreaking bug, nice work!

photo

The crash still exist

photo
1

This crash still exists. This isn't solved. Please, please I have done a complete wipe of my windows system to fix this and the game is still broken. I just want to play the game I payed money for. Is that too hard to ask?

The crash still exists. NOT SOLVED!

yha got tha same message and an ton of lag ingame when you finaly almost build someting and then got the inventory lag they realy need to make the game less high end so other people can play aswel you need an pc from around the 10k euro to play this game perfect
