Game Mode: Single-player(Custom, no mods, but all DLCs).
Issue: Crash due to D3D Device Lost(whatever that means).
Server Type: Single Player, PvE.
Region: Northern Europe.
I got the Core game and all the DLCS installed.
I finally got around to play CE this past Saturday… i Installed it, and launched game. picked “Cancel” to the in installation of Battleye, as i dont plan to play anything but singleplayer.
I started a single player game(Custom), but dident mess with graphic settings.
I played for about 4 hours until rl disrupted me.
Game ran like a charm.
I continued playing on Sunday, and when i again was prompted to install battleye i picked cancel again with the “dont ask again” button flagged. But after about 5 hours, i decided i wanted to recreate my character and start from scratch. But before i did, i turned on admin and teleported to a few map places i was interested in building at, picked god mode and invisibel for that.
Then i logged out to main menu, and quit the game.
When i did this, i was greeted by 2 windows, what they where i dident pay much attention to unfortunately, but one said something about conan exiles, and said “Fatal Error”. I clicked the ok button, but nothing happend at first, but then screen went black, and pc was rebooted.
This freaked me out because despite having been gaming for more than 2 decades, ive never had this happen.
Then today(Wednesday) i decided to play Conan Exiles again, and hope the crash after exit was a fluke.
I also updated my graphic driver yesterday, because i noticed a new driver was up(i update as often i can).
I got as far as the character selection, when the game crashed during character creation.
Was a “D3D Device lost” Error.
As i was playing full screen, all i could do was Ctrl Alt Delete and log out of windows. And ofcourse log back into windows.
I tried google a bit and made some changes… i turned off the Nvidia overlay, i also tried optimize game in the Gforce experience window.
Ive also tried turned graphic settings down and up, and anti alias thingie up and down,
and ive tried playing in full screen window mode instead of plain full screen.
But everytime i play the game, the game crashes because of D3D Device lost.
I dont get further than to the newbie river before the crash happens…
luckily the last few crashes dident crash the pc but just the game… probably because i was in full screen window mode, or had the overlay turned off?.
My pc is a stationary one… 3 years old, and it was probably considered high end when i bought it.
I really want to play this wonderfull game, but i cant play it.
Whats weird, i think, is that on saturday and sunday i could play for hours, with no issue whatsoever.
Only change to my Computer or game before the crash on exit on sunday, was that i had flagged the “dont ask again” for the Battleye install prompt, and that i played a bit with Admin in my game.
And only change after that first crash on sunday, i updated my graphic drivers, when it became available. But i had a crash before i updated the drivers, so i cant see how that could be the issue.
I really hope someone can help, because i die a little inside everytime game crash, and its unplayable now since i at most can play a few minutes.
Also, i am by no means a computer wizard. Heck a “pc for dummies” guide would be WAY to Pro for me
