The longer player.log is line for line almost identical to my own player.log up until the point where it loads your specific map/starting point scenes… It is reporting failures in loading up your loot filters - they may be corrupted and would need to be removed by deleting them from the filters folder & recreated in-game. Other than that one item about the filter, I see no problem and assume that form this log you didnt have a problem. during that play session.
The shorter player.log is ending before the game engine initialises and it tries to load up the UI/GUI components… I.e. the game is just stopping right at the beginning and doesnt even get very far in executing the game or even to the login stage. I am assuming this is immediately after one of your load up hangs… This is similar to the problem that I referred to before that requires those specific installation steps to resolve… It doesnt seem to have worked, so there has to be something else causing it.
Because this is intermittent and the game just stops - i.e. its own debug cannot log an error my suspicion is that there is something external to LE that is causing the problem or at least involved in some way. It may also be something to do with resources, the game intermittently has issues loading up because something else is going on… LE typically stresses the system when first loading, opening (loading/unloading) new maps and during busy play moments and these are all issues people have experienced…
Based on your previous comment about refusing to / not doing driver reinstalls etc, I am going to assume you havent dont any of that, or done any of the Windows updating (your OS is 19042 - latest is 19044) or other things like BIOS/Device drivers etc that I already suggested… I am also assuming you havent tried the standlone version of the game (downloadable from your account page on EHG website).
Being an intermittent problem could also point to flaky hardware or issues with overclocking, or even memory configurations etc… Your system is fairly old now so its very possible a power supply might no longer be deliverying the power it used to or something is overheating etc… LE does currently have an performance issue where it will max out a GPU unneccessarily and this can cause issues on systems that are run harder / not conservatively.
Any other apps and services running in background can also play a big part in problems with LE… e.g. Citrix / Teamviewer for instance, causes incredibly poor performance and crashing for people that leave its services running while trying to play LE. It is very important that you do not run ANY other applications at the same time as a way to test what is going on. Troubleshooting this could be trying to see if the hang happens after you reboot or after you have used a specific application or anything else that could indicate a conflict.
Some people have noticed loading issues related to the in-game settings… I.e. if they use higher settings, the game struggles to load… A simple way to test this is to set the game to 1080p, very low quality with special features off and enabling framerate limiting to 60fps… If the game loads reliably at this lower setting, then this could be the reason…
Monitoring your system while trying to play might also show up something going on… I.e. perhaps there is a CPU spike or the Event Viewer shows up a memory error or something else that is not reported anywhere else…
I have provided lots of possible things to try and lots of suggestions that have worked for others but based on your previous unwillingness to do anything, I cannot really offer anything more on this issue and honestly, I would recommend you dont play LE (or any other early access game) until its launched.
ps. I dont work for EHG, I dont have any affliation with them, I am not a community tester or hold any role… I am just a player like you, helping out on the forum.
