This is my error log:
error.log (59.8 KB)

Hey… Welcome to the forums…

Without seeing a bit more info specific to your system, I would hazard a guess (from the Error log) that your system is crashing due to a graphics driver issue.

The error log refers to nvwgf2umx.dll - this is a file from the Nvidia GPU drivers. Without your dxdiag I cannot tell the state of your system and what versions of drivers you are using so the following are some general suggestions:

  1. Make 100% sure that the game files are verified via Steam.

  2. Disable FRAPS… its part of the error report so its likely part of the problem.

  3. Check what graphics driver you are using - do not use the latest and greatest ones for your 1060, but make sure its at least something from the last 3 months or so. You may need to reinstall it using something like DDU

  4. You are using a laptop… Make sure that its set to performance mode and not doing any automatic scaling of GPU/CPU clock speeds to save battery etc while playing LE.

  5. Do not use higher in-game graphic settings - the game is more stable that way and your laptop is pretty old now so its best to be conservative with LE… Its not optimised and in beta so pushing things will cause stability issues - I recommend, for your setup… 1080p, 50fps framerate limited (not vsync), all in game settings no higher than Low or Medium… Monitor your GPU and make sure its Usage is not averaging over 80% (if it is, then drop the fps) and watch the thermals in your laptop.

  6. Disable or do not run any other applications while playing LE… do not use overlays or anything else - it doesnt matter how irrevelent it might be, while testing LE…

  7. Unplug your controller and test if you are having any stability issues just using the mouse and keyboard…

Thank you for the helping, i have roll back my GPU driver and it worked, i wonder when will the game be able to adapt with the new drivers ?

Drivers are tricky things…

  1. New drivers dont do much for very old hardware - they are updated to get better performance for new hardware…

  2. New drivers (especially the very new ones) are not very stable - the devs just want their GPUs to work faster to top GPU performance charts and sell more, so it takes time (sometimes months) for drivers to stabilise. I do not use drivers newer than 3 months unless there is a specific problem that has been fixed.

  3. Mobile GPUs and laptop graphics drivers are usually the last things to get fixed…

  4. Games usually try to take advantage of the new features that new hardware and new hardware drivers have… This doesnt help people with older hardware…

  5. Games like LE - in beta/development - are not optimised and any small change in a new driver can break games… This is even more important when the game uses a “game technology” like Unity, developed by someone else entirely and if it has problems with new drivers it can cause any games written using it, to fail…

6)… I could probably go on forever…

You get the idea… when things stabilise then things improve… for now we just have to be careful and make sure that we are not just installing new drivers for no reason… especially those of us, like you, with older hardware.
