Game crashes when joining EBS

Post by AgentOinkers » Sun Feb 11, 2018 1:18 pm

Hey, I tried to join EBS yesterday and my game crashed, I tried it multiple times with the same result, then I joined a few different servers and they worked fine. So then I thought that it was maybe the map, so I rejoined today with the exact same result, I get onto the loading screen, and then it crashes after a few seconds. Please tell me what to do!

Search your steam folder for DarkD and delete ALL the DarkD files you find. There should be some .theatre & some .vpk.
You need to remove them all and the join the server to redownload the correct files.

We had a major issue with an update to the new theatre the other day and it ballsed up the workshop version and the version on the server!

If you do join maybe you could not be an arse. Also, tell your friend that it is not a good idea to call an admin a bitch.

Plenty of other servers if you want to run and gun. I especially didn't like the way that your friend - Anom or whatever - was telling us that he was translating for you because your english is not very good. Well, we are not thick, you really should be banned from our servers but we have decided to give you one last chance.

So, behave or fuck off!!

Didn't know where to put this, so here goes.

Recently I've had the problem of Insurgency UI freezing when I start the game or when entering EBS server.

I found out that if I play the game via wifi I should either switch to cable or reset my modem/router before launching the game.
Also, for me when I had discord running(w/o overlay) before entering the server, the game would also freeze, but had no problem using discord after I was in server.

As far as I know there have been no changes on the server that would cause this.

If a large theater or map file is downloading it can seem to pause..especially on slower wifi conections

It might be worth trying to check the validity of the game, go to steam, then insurgency, right click properties and then local files, then choose verify integrity of local files.

You were right Taran.

It was not related to theater, as ztranier and kentone pointed out during game session, it was a graphics card problem, turns out my two graphic cards cause the game's ui to freeze when dual is enabled.

I disabled one of them for ins and with kentone's help set power options to high performance, haven't had problems since.

Just thought I'd report this here, thanks for all the help
