game crashes character creation and assigning powers to quick bar

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

my game has been working flawlessly except these couple bugs. i can design a character fine in the beginning but when i try to design on the tempest the game crashes to desktop.

 

and when i try to assign powers to my bar the game locks up completely. not just my game but my whole PC.

 

im using some mods via frosty mod manager, i just tried it without mods with same result

 

my pc is only a year old and has had no serious issues and im not sure what is happening?

 

eta: windows 10 deluxe edition, deep space pack

Maybe it is the number of players or maybe it isn't much of a problem, but you don't see on the forums many posts such as this.  Yeah, there are ones out there, but they aren't common.  Usually(word that will cause you trouble many times when you use it) that means it is an issue with the game for your specific PC setup...by setup I mean both hardware and the software on your PC.  Since you run mods, my first thought will always be it is the mods fault, as that is the most common cause on a modded game.  By removing the mod, did you follow the complete uninstall directions and follow it up with a repair of the game files using Origin??  Sometimes it may cause an issue on the save files so a new game would also have to be started as a triple check after repair.  Second thing would be substandard hardware or old drivers...a DxDiag file may help determine if anything here is amiss.  Third would be a program cross interference, which a clean boot may help to determine if this is an issue. 

 

But if you made me bet a penny, I would still be on the mods causing issues.....

sorry im fairly new to this and im a little confused. i started the game without frosty, which makes the mods not be active bc it has to be run every time.

 

i had to roll back nvdia/ geforce bc the newest patch disabled screenshotting, something i really like to do.

 

i did do a fix game on origin, no changes

 

i see there is a 'temp' file in my documents with game crash files but im not sure how to open it?

The only MEA error is a "RADAR_PRE_LEAK_64" aka a memory leak warning.

 

Ho much Virtual Memory is allocated on your system? 

 

Use this guide to set it to 16212. (Set 16212 [twice as much as your Physical Memory] in both fields, minimum and maximum size) > Test.

Re: game crashes character creation and assigning powers to quick bar

Are you running a basic keyboard and mouse, or do you have a "gamers" keyboard or mouse??  Wanting to know if there is a background program by their manufacturer running that may be causing interference....

 

Have you tried a clean boot??  This is to see if it may be a cross program interference....

 

Rename your MEA saves folder to backup saves.  Disable or turn off mod manager, repair the game install with Origin, and then restart the game and see if it messes up....yes you will have to replay a bit to find out if it works or not.  This is to see if a setting is messed up, saves corrupted or mods causing issue.  If it is ok, then you add saves back and see if the old works, and so on...

the pc is an ipower, made especially for gaming so maybe the drivers are? they are basic mouse and keyboard, ive had them replaced

 

i have a ton of background programs i really have no clue what or why, 44 background processes, most being anti virus and nvdia. 77 windows processes. service hosts. i thought i disabled a lot of unnecessary background BS but i see i did not. rarely does it lag though.

 

i just did a windows install a few months ago, i have my games installed on another drive to save space on c drive

 

im about to go to bed so i will try the mods and backup my saves in the morning
