    Hi Oleinikov,

    Sorry for the delay in responding to you. We've been very busy for the past few weeks and I'm sorry to hear about your issues with the game crashing.

    A Blue Screen of Death would suggest that something is happening to cause the Windows Kernel to hard crash, this isn't something that should be happening and it suggests that something closer to the metal is causing the issue. It shouldn't be possible for the program itself to cause this but it may be pushing your PC in an unusual way that is stressing a particular component and causing the issue.

    My initial guesses would be an issue caused by heat, faulty memory stick, or faulty drivers.

    A quick suggestion would be to run a torture test program such as Prime95 which will highly stress your CPU and Memory for a few hours to see if it causes the issue to appear. If you'd like instructions on how to do that ask me in the reply. :)

    Please can you provide a full dxdiag output from your PC as well. You can do this by typing Dxdiag into your search bar on the start menu, waiting for the program to load and then clicking "save all information".

    Hope we can help identify the cause of the problem,



    hello. i tested with Prime95 for 1.5 hour. Everything is ok.

    Sometime this game crash atikmdag.sys This file belong to radeon videocard ATI driver.

    Other games like:

    Pillars of eternity 2



    Works fine for me.

    I made clean install of the newest videocard driver. But this didnt solve my problem. 

    Here is my dxdiag information DxDiag.txt

    Any ideas?


    If you have not before you can try to use DDU to make sure that you get a fully clean install


    It'd be helpful if you could get us another output_log now that you've reinstall your drivers


    i used DDU to clear all drivers and made clear install.

    here is fresh log.



    Did the game crash in that session? Theres no evidence of any issue in that log
