We've gotten many reports of crashes over the last few weeks and I thought I could address much of this in one post. If you are crashing on exit, we're aware of this issue and are looking into it. You shouldn't lose any progress from these crashes and it doesn't harm the game or your computer. You'll receive a DMP file from this crash, but it's okay to just delete it. If you're crashing before the game starts or while you are playing, that's a different matter and we do need to find out why. Before you send me your files (And I'll let you know which ones I need in a moment) answer these questions, yes or no. 1. Are your drivers both up to date and WHQL signed? 2. Have you added SoD to your Anti-virus and Firewall Exception List? 3. Is your Power Supply and Cooling System working properly? Use GPU-z or CPU-z to check for overheating. 4. Are you running Mods? Are they all up to date? (ie – do they work with State of Decay without making it crash.) 5. Are you running Nexus? (Mod) (It's been known to make SoD crash). If so, have you removed it or disabled it? 6. Are you running X-fire? It's also been known to make SoD crash. If so, have you removed it or disabled it? 7. Have you tried this - Try this: go to steam library, right click on State of Decay, choose "properties". In the first tab go to "starting options" and put here: -resx=1280 -resy=720 -fullscreen Also put your monitor resolution to 1280x720. When in game, put your correct resolution. 8. Are you using SweetFX? If so, 8.1 doesn't work with Windows 8. 9. Are you using Gigabyte OC Guru II on-screen display? If so, this has been known to crash your system upon running SoD. After disabling, are you still crashing? 10. Is your GPU Overclocked? If so, please roll it back to a regular state. SoD has issues with Overclocked cards. It stresses the system and causes crashes. 11. Have you updated to VCredist 2012? Go to this location on your PC and run vcredist again. It should update to 2012 rather than 2010 \Steamapps\common\State of Decay\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2010\vcredist_x64.exe If you've answered yes to all of these questions and you are still crashing, please send the following to my email (nicole at undeadlabs dot com) with the subject: State of Decay Crash. Your files are located in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\State of Decay YOSE\USER 1. Save files of the games you are playing when you crash. 2. CFG files (These are your user stats / config files) 3. DMP Files C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\State of Decay YOSE\USER 4. DxDiag (Your most recent one please.) Open DirectX Diagnostic Tool by clicking the Start button , typing dxdiag in the Search box, and then pressing ENTER. 5. Steam User ID – if you could include the link of your ID number as well that would be great.) 6. A detailed description of what you were doing when you crashed. 7. Your forum user name and a link to any thread you've posted regarding your crash.
