So everything was fine until last night (9/11) when I was playing through my current game and all of a sudden, I get the .PAK corruption/tamper notice and the game shut down. So I disabled mods (I marked no mods because it’s repeatable without mods) and try again today and same issue, sometimes even happening before the intro videos finished playing. I verified files. 2 files reacquired. Great. No fix. I deleted everything (at the mistake of not backing up my character first… sadly I have to start over now…) and reinstalled with no mods. Same issue. Verified again. Found 1 file. I assume it’s the default game ini to which I commented out the intro videos… because they turned back on after. Currently can’t play for longer than 1-15 minutes before PAK file corruption message pops up. I tried to continue playing and just ignoring the message, but game would hang for several seconds after shooting arrow, and no further spawns would appear. Pause menu would take around 20-30 seconds minimum to come up. At a loss of what to do further. Current patch as of September 8, patch version 2.5.2.
Unfortunately I can not delete/install the game again for several more weeks due to the download limit of my ISP… which I NEVER hit, mind, but I’ve had to do a massive amount of reinstalling/reloading recently due to computer problems NOT related to storage. Also, storage diagnostics report no errors.
Expected Behavior: No PAK corruption issue/error. Unhampered gameplay since September 10 and prior. Issue started 9/11.
