Random game crash whilst in preview mode for editor.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Whilst walking around Stratis in the editor preview, my screen went blank for a second and then my whole computer restarted, It leads me to believe that this was caused by the game and not the hardware because upon reopening Steam after reboot, I got a "failed to launch game (app already running" error message even though there's nothing running in the background and in task manager, and the computer had just started up.

I've OC'd my CPU, however it runs stable under stress tests and I'll be sure to get the dxdiag soon, but I'll be out of town for a few days.
