Since a few days my game is crashing randomly and I don’t know what’s causing it. Perhaps someone here can help ?
Except for the random crashes, the game otherwise runs fine and without problems. Last monday I had been playing for about 10 minutes when I tried to inject a new skill into my character, and the game just froze up and died (crash to desktop).
I restarted the client but it soon became obvious that the game crash had corrupted my shared cache files. I did a verification scan, it found 2 corrupted files and after that everything seemed to be fixed. I logged in, the game was working again and I continued to play. About an hour later, I had been busy on the market buying and selling stuff when at one point I hit the sell button and the game just froze up and died again.
I spent the next evening checking my PC, running virus scan etc. to make sure there was nothing funny going on, but I can’t find anything wrong. Yesterday, the game seemed to work normally after the second crash from the day before (no shared cache corrpution). I played for a few hours (!) but eventually it crashed again - this time when I was undocked and wanted to stack the items in my ship cargohold. I clicked the “stack all” option and that was it - freeze and dead.
This last time I had the presence of mind to check the Loglite messages, and it says client crashed with exit code -1073741819.
The thing is, I don’t know what to do here. This particular exit code indicates that the program was terminated due to an access violation; I don’t know what that means exactly but it doesn’t sound good. Is this error caused by Eve ? It seems that way to me, because nothing has changed on my end and I used to have no problems. Any help or suggestions are welcome.
