Running v. 0.6.3 Steam Early Access Some Context
I bought the game on steam just a few days ago and was playing on my laptop (MSI GL73; Win. 10 x64, Intel i7 8th Gen 2.2 GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 1050) just fine and it was great. However, when playing the game I noticed that my laptop got pretty hot. For a while as long as it worked, which it did, I didn't care. however I noticed that my power block was especially hot, too hot to hold so I got concerned and I unplugged my laptop & closed the game but not too long later noticed my battery had 28% and 9 minutes left. TLDR; My laptop got hot so I tried to use my desktop
It may or may not be relevant that Steam had synced all the game data.
When I started the game on my desktop (Win. 10 x64, Intel i7 3.6 GHz, 48GB RAM, RX 480), it seemed fine; the game main page showed up, settings page works etc. Trying to go into the tutorial, continue a previous game, or start a new game all crash or freeze the game though.
From a user perspective, this is awful. There's nothing too abnormal about my Desktop as far as I'm aware that would cause this kind any kind of unexpected issue yet the game is rendered completely unplayable on it. My attempts to troubleshoot First off, not every crash resulted in a new error.log file.
In the error.log file I did have, the last thing it said was
Image Base: 0x727c0000 Image Size: 0x00c93000
File Size: 12989960 File Time: 2017-10-13_112352
Company: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
Product: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. Radeon Video Acceleration Universal Driver
FileDesc: Radeon Video Acceleration Universal Driver
Which I'm going to assume means this is the file which caused the error prompting the file creation. From what I can tell this is a file directly related to my GPU drivers, based on the fact it says `Radeon Video Acceleration Universal Driver` in the file description. I didn't recall ever updating the GPUs drivers so I figured maybe trying to update my AMD dirver would help.
Trying to start a new game, I got further and it didn't crash, it just froze and softlocked on the "this is still an early access game" screen, and wouldn't refit the (frozen) graphics on window resize. It also went crazy, writing data to the log file getting over 50 MB before I noticed. I uploaded it with a bunch of repetition removed (7 KB).
Trying again, I got this WattMan error:
Same thing when trying to do a tutorial mission:
I proceeded to uninstall and reinstall the game, trying to open a tutorial mission after that provided a true crash.
I've tried a plethora of other little things to try and trouble shoot this but most of them resulted in one of the errors mentioned above and I've had to restart my computer more times than I can remember.
Also, both Golf With your Friends and Kerbal Space Program (both Unity games) work fine.
