Game crashes due to problem with NVIDIA OpenGL driver

  • Hi. I have several crashes due to this error in the last few days. Game version 5.1.5. The error message is a


    The NVIDIA OpenGL driver detected a problem with the display
    driver and is unable to continue. The application must close.


    Error code: 8
    Visit http://www.nvidia.com/page/support.html for more information."


    This appears to be a somewhat generic error message, and I have not managed to find any detailed information regarding this.


    My system specs...


    Microsoft Windows 8.1, Version 6.3.9600 Build 9600


    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4930K CPU @ 3.40GHz, 3701 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical Processor(s)
    Locale United Kingdom
    Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB


    GPU GeForce GTX 780
    VRAM 3GB
    Driver Version 347.09 (up to date)


    Resolution 1920x1080 @ 60Hz


    I will be duplicating this post onto the Steam forum.

  • Thanks. That was an impressively quick reply :)


    Some further detail - the crash only occurs intermittently. I can start the game with no problems and play for several hours before it happens, or it may not happen at all. There seems not to be a constant in game activity that triggers it.


    On a positive note, I can restart the game straight away, and so far have always started where I was when the crash occured with little or no progress lost, so your game saving procedure seems to handle this well.

  • I use the GeForce Experience utility for keeping the driver up to date. The current one was installed on 23/12/2014 (Version 347.09) and when I checked a few minutes ago, it is stated to be up to date.


    I will test an older driver version later today.


    As things stand, the game is perfectly playable for me for long periods of time, so this is really more of a bug report than a help request. I will report back later today whether I have problems with an older driver, however as the crashes only happen intermittently and sometimes after playing a long time, this may not be 100% confirmation the issue has been solved.

  • I don't recall having any previous problems with the game (aside from dropped connections to MP servers occasionally). Windows Event Log shows I first had this problem 2 times on December 29th, and 9 times on 30th. Then, 5 times on January 8th, 1 on the 11th, and 4 each yesterday and today. I have also played the game on most of the days when the error hasn't occured at all.


    The errorlog from the 16th is as follows...

  • I am now using driver version 344.75, and have played for several hours with no crashing, however as I said before due to the intermittent nature of the problem it is not possible to say with 100% certainty that was the cause.


    Anyway, thanks for the help looking into this. You have created an excellent game which I already have over 180 hours on.

  • An update to this, in case it is useful for anyone else - using the previous nvidia driver (344.75) I encountered no further crashes for a whole week. I updated the driver to a brand new one earlier today (347.25), and have so far also had no problems with this one.
