I had NONE of these issues until they started to address them. What is going on? Are they tailoring the AMD experience for low end pc’s ? This is so frustrating. My game has been getting progressively worse. My specs
CPU: AMD FX-8350 8-Core 4.2Ghz
RAM: 12GB DDR3
GPU: MSI Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5
HDDs: 2x WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM
PSU: Thermaltake 700w

Lol. Zendesked 3 times this morning. HG is gonna come lookin’ for me. :laughing:

I’ll check this evening, I have an rx470 AMD card. These are not considered low end. Did you make sure all driver updates are present? Are you still running through proton?

I will double check the drivers on my card but I am currently back on Windows OS. Ubuntu gave me trouble and I am moving over to Solus, I think. My son has NMS running in it.

Gog is not getting these updates

I am one lucky son of a gun. I start the game and check performance after every Exp update and I am still having no issues. I dont play as much as I used too, letting things calm down and checking these updates everytime. I think it’s overkill the wiring required to open a door. Going with holodoors instead or none at all.

:grinning: My old save no longer crashes when I go to an old base, though now I need in excess of 1200 power at my first base :open_mouth:

Apparently we are getting the patches in gog experimental. But the changelog is not always updated. Yesterday night I was at 2.05, today 2.06e

Glad to hear recent experimental has fixed the mass crashes that people began experiencing with the more recent patches.

I’d been playing PSVR this whole time with zero crashes, was lucky like @Finnerty, maybe same reason as VR kinda enforces shorter sessions via sore neck and dry eyes :joy:

However after 2.07 hit consoles yesterday I experienced six crashes in space of three hours. Sometimes during initial loading screen, or just randomly during exploration.

Very happy as what I’m hearing from latest reaction to experimental is next patch should sort this.

We, the console players, appreciate the diligent efforts of the experimental branch task force. May your save states remain safe and unco//16//rrupte//16//d :vulcan_salute:

Do we get a QS refund? :grin:
I am not entirely convinced HG knows what they are doing in Vulkan. Each little update is causing my graphics and fps to take tiny little hits. Before long, this game is going to be back at the same performance level as it was on opengl
