Hi, 

 

Each time I load the game I get this direct X error that crashes the game. The game started correctly first time, but crashed after character creation. Here is the Dxdiag

Thanks a lot

 


Hi barkspawn83, 

 

Unfortunately your CPU appears to be running below the required 2 GHZ. Additionally, are you sure that the game is correctly using the NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M instead of your Intel HD chip?

 

Cheers,

Nils

After following the instructions I changed the PhysX to CPU and the loading times have spiked since.  The game also still crashes but now with no error message.  http://hastebin.com/izubuwutal.tex    There is my DXDIAG as instructed.  

 

UPDATE:  Still getting this error even after changing the PhysX. 

 

DirectX Function "getDeviceRemovedReason" Failed with DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG ("the application's device failed due to badly formed commands sent by the application. This is an design-time issue that should be investigated and fixed."). GPU: NVIDIA GForce GTX 650 Ti Boost", Driver: 34465

Game crashes with error message: "application device failed due to badly formed commands sent by application" about 4-5 mins into prologue.

Since Physx2CPU didn't solve the issue completely I have another suggestion.

But, can't help exactly as I'm in EU which means I won't be able to play/test till friday. Frown

 

Anyway, the cause of this problem with Frostbite engine seem cards that were overclocked by default (by manufacturer). Dunno why and dunno how.

You don't have to watch the whole video, just google for your card and find out what is it's base clock. Then check in your driver options if it's different from that, examples:

Example for: GeForce GTX 680
Default Clock (MHz): 1058
Base Clock: 1006
So you should change your clock from 1058 to 1006!

Example for: GeForce GTX 770
Default Clock (MHz): 1085
Base Clock: 1046
So you should change your clock from 1085 to 1046!


Example for: GeForce GTX 660 Ti
Default Clock (MHz): 980
Base Clock: 915
So you should change your clock from 980 to 915!


Example for: NVidia Geforce GTX 780 Ti
Default Clock (MHz): 928
Base Clock: 876
So you should change your clock from 928 to 876!

 

For ATI cards, to change clock to it's default you need to open AMD CCC, then choose AMD Overdrive.

For nVidia cards, open NVidia control panel and find  Clock value. If it's not there, you need nVidia System tools (http://www.nvidia.com/object/nvidia-system-tools-6.08-driver.html#source=gss - install only Nvidia System Performance from the package and it'll add Performance option in nVidia Control Panel).

 

You may always check the clock value and other card info with this utility:

I suggest not experimenting with clock values. Write down what manufacturer used so you can return that value after you're done with DA3 or if EA fixes the issue.

After restarting the game w/o ambient occlusion it's running much better now, no chrashes and no stuttering.

I switched from GPU to CPU for PhysX and it has worked okay so far, but I was able to play a couple hours like I just did before it crashed again, so not sure if just fixed or waiting to take a dump on me.
