We just updated to 105.1.1-1359, after trying on the weekend and finding a few issues. Those issues appear to be fixed, but reports of new ones are welcome. AMD graphics users in particular may need to update their drivers.

Can you find your infolog_full.txt after a crash and upload it somewhere for us to look at? Accepting the automated crash report and posting the link works too.

Downgrading to the May release of AMD drivers solved my problem. From what I've been told AMD windows releases are generally less stable than they should be close to the launch, so the new engine and new drivers aren't mixing well. https://www.amd.com/en/graphics/radeon-rx-graphics

My problems were a feeling of lagginess, inconsistent frame times, high ram/cpu usage, a variety of crashes, and assorted visual bugs in the 3d rendering and displaying of text. After I downgraded, my replay test exhibited none of these behaviors. If you feel like you have some or all of these issues, try downgrading your drivers, and hopefully something gets resolved over time.

Experiencing noticeable slowdowns now in the late game. Normally my computer can keep up just fine.

Haven't played since, but just loading a replay right now -- can't see any units except for their icon if I zoom out.

I have an nvidia 1080 in Linux with drivers updated in the past couple weeks, so not AMD related. Though FWIW I've noticed some strangeness with nvidia drivers in this most recent updates.

Edit: the first match I actually played I had no issue.

the AI (Brutal) is sometime (about 1/2 times) inactive since the engine change.

AMD user here, I'm on drivers 22.11.1 from 11/10/2022 on a Vega 54 and I'm seeing hiccups, lag, and graphical oddities in the water areas mainly. There were some other odd things I've seen over the last week or so with some of these interim releases as well. It used to be without any of these problems. I may downgrade as Steel_Blue suggested.

So, after the engine update, it's doing some.. odd things.. seemingly when I'm only a spectator. Units' models often missing, or their models are, uh... a little wonky:



That's a Mason.

Ok, about the inactive AI, it appears after more test that it is probably not related to engine but to the Set Ai Spawn option.

I'm not sure if this is caused by the engine or other updates, but here's what I have experienced:

1. I use factory selection hotkeys in Hotkeys/Selection/Factory Selection. Now, they were broken, probably due to using the same hotkeys for control groups even though it has always worked with that conflict before the update. After I removed the control group hotkeys, my factory selection hotkeys worked again. The rebinding took unusually long, multiple seconds for each key rebind.

2. My unit icon draw distance has been reset to 250. I couldn't change it back through the menu because I couldn't find the option in the menu anymore. I expected it in Settings/Interface/Hovering Icons. Has it disappeared? I changed UnitIconDist in springsettings.cfg manually. It would still be good if I could find that slider for a WYSIWYG tuning.

3. The metal spot metal rate text on the map looks fat and dark and seems to be unaffected by settings changes or maps.

4. The following things now cause noticeable slowdowns: Com death, change of spectated squads, hotkey change, game end.

I have buggy water wave textures on diffrent maps, also sometimes i have black trees, but this is less often.
Not sure if this update is the cause, but its a relative new issue (RX6900XT - 22.11.2).

DErank[OMA]Darkestnoir, try typing "/water 0" "/water 4" "/water 3" etc. and see if that crashes the game. Get back with that plz. Often after changing waters, all my text will start disapering then it crashes in 30 seconds.
