The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
I'm experiencing the same problem. On a Mac, it runs fine on medium settings but then (seemingly) randomly freezes. Sometimes during the game, sometimes in the start menu as well. My entire laptop freezes, the sound just keeps playing the same 'last second' over and over. I can't switch screens or do anything at that point except do a forced reboot.
I've tried all steps above (reinstalling, verifiying files, disabling ironman/cloud saves, lowering specs, windowed mode, lowest possible resolution). It might be that my laptop specs are not good enough even though the game runs fine when it runs. So I'm guessing something else is wrong, but it is hard to point out what exactly is causing the freeze.
Sorry about that, we have an investigation going on into this situation now. I'll add your post to that bug report.At best for me, I get to the menu screen with the three characters but the menu doesn't load. Sometimes, if I hover over where I presume the menu would be I hear a button noise but this is as far as I've got. I've tried all the fixes, but looking at the error logs there's an issue loading up the pixel buffer and shader state and I'm being told that:
'The GPU will not respond to more commands, most likely because of an invalid command passed by the calling application.'
Is your GPU - indeed anything - overclocked? At least two users have found that reducing OCing on their GPU fixed this problem for them.I'm having the same issues as well. I cant go more than a couple of minutes without the game freezing then crashing.
Its strange in that I bought the game a couple of days ago. Played it quite a lot & didn't have a single crash. Then today this problem started and now I can't go a few minutes without crashing. Have tried a clean reinstall and everything else suggested in this thread.
