Game crashes randomly on UI interactions (edit: Scroll Wheel Key?)
Hi! I bought this game quite a while ago and I started playing it again when I saw it got Trading Card support and that the mods are still going and strong (which means the game is alive, hurray!). But there is one big problem that ruins the whole experience for me: The game crashes to desktop immediately, no error window or anything upon some UI interactions on random intervals

I tried to recreate this situation as much as possible and did experience the game crashing on these circumstances:
  • Opening the crafting window
  • Gaining a level
  • Hovering over an item
  • Finding a trading card (not sure, since the Steam Overlay does not work)

The game never did this at all before the trading card things happened and I really am clueless as to what is causing this, I do not use any mods.

Have you tried verifying the cache? Or uninstalling and reinstalling the game?

Yes and yes and issue still persists. I currently am using the opposite option on Smooth Scaling as suggested by a friend of mine.

I am also getting the random "dump to desktop" issue on various UI interactions. It's driving me nuts.

I have diagnosed together with Cean that this being caused for me by using the Scroll Wheel key on parts of the UI like the crafting window and when leveling up a skill, this does not happen however at the start.

RDJ, do you also use the scrolling wheel to browse said stuff?

I experienced something like this a while ago, though haven't seen it recently. A workaround to the "crash when closing the level-up window" was to click the "K" button to close it instead of clicking on the X. Annoying, but functional.

Yes, I habitually use the scroll wheel. I will try leaving it alone and seeing if that helps matters and post my results.

I'm getting crashes like that at random whenever I'm dealing with a monster zoo. It's happened twice now. A dread collector punched me so hard I CtD'd. (Which was a good thing, to be honest. I wasn't expecting my quake to snag Brax there.)

Yup, the scroll wheel is doing it EVERY time for me.
ya anytime i use the scroll wheel except for when i am in the level select screen it crashes
