While playing rust my game freezes on a single frame while still playing audio. My friends i play with tell me that im still moving when i move my mouse and what not while the frozen frame is the only thing I see. It continues to play audio for a random amount of time and then just closes rust. It dousnt say anything it dousnt give me a error or anything just closes it. For the randomness part i played today for somewhat around 3 hours then it froze and closed. then directly after that i opened it up again joined the server i was playing on with a friend and i crashed after like 45 seconds. I have zero idea on why this happens, but i know its been happening to me for over a year now.
I just opened rust this morning and it closed itself after a minute and a half. What even is this.
what specs are you running? here are the minimum https://i.imgur.com/Vg2BQ1q.png
Im using an Intel Core i5 3470 with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 on windows 10 with 16 GBytes of DDR3 RAM.
I have reinstalled the game for the 4th time and i was able to play it for roughly 3 hours before (while in the muddle if a raid) it closed froze the screen for maybe 2 seconds before closing itself. I want to say its my computer that causes this but it runs rust very well.
What is your virtual memory set to?
I'm not completely sure so here's a screenshot. https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/386360/053d348d-54f6-45e8-b4f3-8dd49e62a2e3/image.png
Uncheck "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives", and then change the initial AND maximum size of the page file to 16384, click "Set" and then Ok, and restart your computer. This may require using a drive other than C:, since it's low on disk space and changing the virtual memory from 3GB to 16GB will use most of it up.
I will try this out and reply after. thanks
So i FINALLY got on rust and played for a while and after maybe 4 hours of game play i froze and crashed the same way i used to. Then today i got on and 20 mins in it froze and closed. I still dont understand this problem...
i did complete this after posting and had not very much free time to try rust but it seems to not work or at least delay the inevitable crashing...
Well, that's unfortunate. I would make sure your drivers are up to date. Graphics driver, sound driver, also make sure you've done your Windows Updates. When Rust crashes does it say anything about crash logs?
I have double checked my drivers and they all seem to be up to date, and whenever i 'crash' it just freezes the screen (the frame) and thats all i see for roughly 3 seconds, then it closes itself. It never creates a text box or crash dialog box it just closes to desktop. I also here game audio during those 3 seconds of a frozen frame by the way.
i found out that one of my friends has the same problem. this gets really annoying but im not giving up yet.
