My game will randomly freeze up then crash.

running via steam launcher

Windows 10 operating system

game version is currently 1.302.42154

Only dlc I currently own is the collectors edition bonus content that came with the Humble Choice version.

There doesn't seem to be any specific cause to when it crashes. Happens on the strategic map and in tactical combat without any real trigger. Game will freeze for a moment then shut out and bring up the crash report box.

Yes I verified my files

loaded different saves a couple times and they crash out within a few turns. Happened at battle victory, turn start, mid turn, and while selecting equipment mods.

I have the dump file name handy. It is AOWPF_Crash_2020-07-24-08-05-38_B309CD82.tcd.

Hey CaptainLizardman, thanks for reaching out. We've had a few reports with your crash in the past but weren't able to determine the cause of the crashes. For now let's try to lower the GPU stress so that it doesn't crash as often. Try playing in windowed mode, if you have V-sync on put that to Quarter Rate, with some luck that lowers the occurrence rate at get you through the weekend.
