I've been at this for almost TWO WEEKS now, and every time I try gliding through the tunnel with my Hobgobbler flight suit (as I'm still stuck on the Hobgobbler expansion now), and once I get halfway across it, the entire game crashes-- along with another program I'm using to record this stuff! This is almost IMPOSSIBLE TO DO as I wanted to get this all done by Dreadfall season and I'm up to my wits end here!!!!

 

 

Please help, I'm using a PC at a local library and sometimes on my own laptop!!!

So the game crashes when you reach at a specific spot, while using specific recording software, but not on a specific computer. Is that correct?

 

That's odd. The game should pop out a crash log for every crash. It may be worth looking through that, but they may not always be very useful.

A Disturbance in the Force!

Well that's the thing; while I'm recording (I was using Bandicam) I record my playthrough up to a certain extent of the gameplay, and after about two videos recorded I try again to continue the playthrough, but until about 5 to ten minutes in the game while I record, the game, the recording, AND the computer FREEZES! I try exiting, logging out the game, AND even tried to properly shut down the computer, but NOTHING happens, it's just FROZEN in place!

... So I unplug the whole computer, plugged it back in, uninstalled, reinstalled, and reset the whole unit, and found all my recorded videos are ALL GONE!!!
So the next time I tried using Desktop recording from Microsoft (some hotkeys I found out and probably should've used a long time ago) so I tested that, no problem, but after a couple videos recorded-- the whole thing does it AGAIN!!

I don't know if it's the game, the recording softwares I used, or even the computer itself!

If your entire computer freezes, I'm not sure if it's SoD. If you can, you could keep the task manager's performance tab or the performance monitor at hand while playing and recording, and see if there's a lot of stress on say, the cpu or your memory. SoD is ridiculously heavy, and recording software is also much heavier than it looks.

 

Try updating your graphics and chipset drivers.

 

You could also try doing a stress test like heavyload (cpu) or furmark (graphics) to make sure the freezing isn't happening due to stress/overheating/hardware problems in those two parts. It might also be your memory, but testing that takes a long while depending on how much memory your pc has.

 

Another thing you could try is do exactly what you did but in another game. Play it for a bit while recording. That way you can see whether it's really SoD messing things up or not. It's not likely but it sure is possible. If it just happens when you're recording SoD then you might have more luck checking your event log for clues.
