Game randomly crashes with a driver crash error.

Sergio Pinto shared this bug 3 months ago
Solved

As the title states the game randomly crashes even when the GPU is running at a relatively low temp. This error doesn't occur on any other game.

Sorry to hear you're experiencing this issue. Could you please try the following steps first to see if any of these help your situation :) Please let me know how you get on after doing these steps

  • Verify your game files in Steam

  • Delete SpaceEngineers.cfg file

  • It means your game configuration will be deleted
  • You can access your SpaceEngineers.cfg by typing %appdata% into your Windows search bar and you will be redirected to the hidden Roaming folder. After that just follow: \Roaming\SpaceEngineers.

  • Delete ShaderCache folder

  • Back up your whole Space Engineers Roaming folder and delete it
  • Restart Steam
  • Reinstall VC Redist 2017
  • Update graphic drivers
  • Reinstall the game
  • Make sure your operating system is fully updated

Thanks for the quick reply. I have done most of what you suggested. With no luck although turning the grass to zero seems to have worked this far.
