Random Freeze, followed by crash.

Recommended Posts

Hello! My friend and I have been trying to play Sacred 2 for a few years now (Bought the base game on Steam years ago, Sacred 2 EU or whatever its labeled now. Have since purchased Sacred 2 Gold a year or two later) and we are always faced with the same issue since day 1 of trying to play together. We'll play without any issue for around 30 minutes to as long as an hour or so, then his game will freeze for a split second, then immediately close and go back  to his desktop. I have searched for any possible fixes that might work, ranging from adding commands to the  Sacred 2 shortcut that people have had success with, to switching compatibility modes from Windows XP3 all the way to Windows 7. One of the posts I had read before just recently was determining the game crashing from using to much RAM (1.5gb I think it said?), so I had asked him if he was able to see Sacred 2 within his task manager when the crash happens to which he said he can't because it immediately takes him back to his desktop and closes out of the game without any exception error or notification whatsoever. The last thing I suggested he should try was unticking the Physx box from within the games options. He's currently running the latest version of CM Patch, and has tried the 4GB patch. His system specifications are Core I7, 8GB of Ram, GTX 970 4GB and he has recently replaced his HDD to an SSD . His current operating system is Windows 10.

If more specific system specs are needed, I will gladly retrieve the specifics from him. 
Any help is very much appreciated and I hope that I can finally but this damned mystery to rest so we can play!

I am directing you to another thread, Need Help With PhysX Error, as it should properly address your question and hopefully solve your friend's issue. Please let us know if the issue is still unresolved.

There are also a few other threads which address similar issues and one that you may wish to check in particular is, Help Sacred 2 Gold (steam) don't start (starup error).

I didn't get any freezes for a long time. I just open Task Manager, then start the game in window mode. It didn't crash anymore. It used to this summer, but no problems now.
