    Bug Description:


    My friends and I play 7 days to die online and I'm the host. I recently upgraded my graphics card and the game keeps crashing.


    I have updated my drivers and validated the files. I've tried everything I could think of to fix the issue, but I can't get the game to stop crashing.

    I can launch the game and play for around 5 minutes, but then it just suddenly stops. Sometimes the game freezes and shows the program has stopped responding, other times the game freezes my entire PC and then my PC restarts. And then on top of that, sometimes the game shows error messages at the top and then crashes.


    Detailed steps to reproduce the bug:


    1) Play game

    2) Walk around for a bit (usually for about 5 minutes) shooting zombies or whatever

    3) Game crashes


    Actual result: (description of what is occurring)

    Game crashes 


    Expected result: (what you expect to occur)

    Game doesn't crash

    Thank you for reporting.

    Having the discord overlay turned on can cause the game to crash.  If that isn't the cause,  please post the crash report as well,  generated in C:/Users/Aiden/AppData/Local/Temp/The Fun Pimps/7 Days To Die/Crashes

    Sort of a long shot here, but your output log is reporting a crash related to Audio.
    Try disabling Dynamic Music in the Audio Options and see what happens.

    Thank you both for responding.


    I have resolved the issue. Apparently a ram setting in the bios caused instability. It was stable enough to run the desktop and some games and programs, but not 7 Days to Die for longer than 10 or so minutes. With the adjusted setting, the game does not crash anymore.
