Game Crashes on Load

Hi There,

I recently played Castle Story for the first time since the 0.9 update. Unfortunately I can not play the game. I tried completely uninstalling and installing again but the crash remains.

The game crashes as soon as I get to the main menu. If I open the game in the smaller resolution, I can navigate the menu for about 30 seconds before another crash.

Attached are the crash logs of the most recent crash.

I also have a linux partition. I can play the game on linux, but only for about half an hour before a crash.
Also, my GPU usage spikes to 100% in the main menu, that seems really weird.


  • I did those steps, it's what I meant by "completely uninstalling and installing again".
    I just did it again a week later, and same problem.

    Hey MagicJesus,

    Can you tell me what your PC specs are? Notably your OS, CPU, GPU and RAM.

    Hey MagicJesus,

    I've asked our devs to take a look at your logs and specs. I'll get back to you about that soon.

    In the meanwhile, can you try closing all running software (notable anti-viruses/MSI Afterburn if you have that running/fraps/etc) - basically, anything possible. Try, as much as possible, only to have Steam/Castle Story running and tell me if there's any improvement.
  • I can't believe I didn't try it before, but I closed a whole bunch of stuff and it seems to working now. I did have msi afterburner running for the record. I'll slowly add things back into the environment and see what caused the failure. I'll report back with my findings next time I get a chance to try things.
