anyone had any consistent success running this game on Nvidia?
Damn game is definitely causing GPU crashes... dem colours. as far as I can tell from previous posts, and from my own cards performance, Nvidia users are crashing at minimum cause of heat.

Can run bioshock infinite 1080p ultra settings for 60+ fps without overheating... can't run this game for 2-3 hours of enjoyment without begging for a fire to erupt in my house.

Tried clearing the GunPart cache and re-verifying, that was a suggestion on the forums to no avail... anyone found a solution?

(I am on a 120Hz monitor... unsure though whether it'd make any difference to turn down the refresh rate 60Hz and turn on VSync?)

I am having the same issue, my computer is not over heating nor is my GPU. I will get random display failure and recover or the game will stop responding.

I'm running the game on a GeForce 650M. No problems at all.

If your whole computer locks up that could be the GPU overheating. Going to 60hz with vsync on can definitely help with overheating, since your computer will idle between frames.

Keebz, when you get a "display failure" what exactly do you mean? Is there an error message?

I have a GTX 570, no problems at all

Nope I can maybe get 1 or 2 hours then it crashes/freezes and I have to restart the game

gtx 560ti here no problems

dang... yea im a ASUS 660 Ti... not sure if that makes all the difference. 560's seem to not be having issues... gonna give vsync and reduce to 60Hz and see if that helps when i try playing tomorrow. Ty rob for responding.

120hz is still relatively new, very good chance that's ur issue. I'm on a 60hz monitor with v=sync active. V-sync is a function that synchronizes your cards output with ur monitor's framerate. Essentially forcing it to try and hit 120 fps. That's where your heat issue is coming from.

Ok for a lot of you crashing and freezing I am in the middle of rendering a help video. I was like you unable to play because of crashes and freezing and sometimes it would crash my whole pc... but I have managed to fix mine now and have played for hours without any issues at all...

All of the steps I took are in this video and links will be in the description of the video to useful programs you can use to help you.

The video is currently rendering but in an hour or 2 it will be uploaded to youtube.

The link will be posted on the forums here:
https://www.loadout.com/forums/index.php?threads/do-your-game-crash-probable-causes-and-fix-for-some.2369/

Feel free to share and post the video link on the forums to help other people to get there game working also.

As it states on the other forums this fix will help a lot of people but it might not help you all so please dont rage at me if it did not help you but im guessing its going to help most of you.

Keep your eyes open on the forum (Linked above) for the video link.

Really hope my video help you all to be able to play Loadout without the crashes

680 no crashes runs like butter. Only issue is random disconnects
DzRealkiller Feb 10 @ 12:32pm 
Ok the video has uploaded but Youtube is still messing with it at the moment to the quality may be down a little... Please note like i said before this is what worked for me it may not work for everybody and the fix is really simple but this may not work for all.

Also please be aware In the Video gameplay part I do tend to swear so if you are young or just dont want to hear any swearing please think before viewing the video.

Heres the link:

Hope this helps.

Also I don't know if this will even effect it but, go onto the nVidia website and download the "Legacy" driver for your model.

I've got a 660 and have not had more than a single crash since launch day. I've got more than a hundred hours logged, although some of that is afk at menus. I keep my graphics drivers up to date. I also have another dx11 enabled card (gtx 460) and an older 8800gtx on hand to test with.

If I can help the devs in any way I'd be happy to try. I'd love to see the crashing problem resolved for everyone.
