2 weeks later and my game is still broken......

After update 79 when I load “loading level procedural map” the game crashes to my desktop. The game does work in directx9 mode and debug mode but both are too laggy to truly be able to play on, even on the lowest settings, we’re talkin 15 fps. Please fix this issue, I have been playing this game for about 2 (maybe) years now and really like this game…

I have the exact same problem as you since patch 79 :open_mouth:
I though the dev 80 would patch it so I waited but it didn’t.
The game works in DirectX9 but it’s lagging hard…

Try uninstalling Eac from the rust folders. After it uninstalls. Try to uninstalling it again. It may say there’s nothing to uninstall hit next anyway. run steam as administrator start rust from steam and reinstall Eac when you get the prompt. Let me know what happens

Same thing here… Game just crash… Cannot play since Patch 79… I can’t admin my server anymore :frowning:

says eac unconnected and the game stops responding after that, i dont know if that is because i deleted the file or because i changed what program the file is opened with and changed it back

== [end of error.log] ==

would it be possible to just go back to the way the procedural map was loaded before the update until a fix is figured out?

Have you guys tried development debug mode? It helped me.

Game has gone to shit.

debug mode lags, 15 fps

Holy shit this page is long who actually post a whole error log into a post!!!

Not everything went just like your country, man.
The game went to my Top 3 Early Access Games.
I bought Rust back in the days, when there were these dutch auctions.
Way before it was in Steam and had to be played in a browser!
Rust always was a great game and its cheap as fuck for that content.
Just go play some more Star Wars Battlfront or Call of Duty then.

FFS

The issue arises in your cases because Experimental Rust is, by default, attempting to use in-game effects which rely on DirectX 11 (probably ‘Noise and Grain’ or ‘Depth of Field’ from the standard assets package in Unity 5), and your card does not support DirectX 11. Other than upgrading your video card, the only ‘solution’ from your end is to set the game to run in DirectX 9 mode, which is an option in the right-click menu for this game in the Steam Library window. Some players have experienced periodic lags in this mode however - stuttering every 2 seconds or so, after a certain amount of playtime. I realise some of you have already found this option yourself, just putting this information here for others encountering this situation :slight_smile:

The ‘fix’ on Facepunch’s end would be if they had some internal logic to detect DirectX 11 capabilities and - if DX11 support is not present - loaded alternate effects (e.g, ‘Noise and Scratches’ from the standard package which is a DX9-compatible asset), or disabled those effects completely. Most cards released since about 2010 support DX11 though, so it’s an understandable decision if they choose not to put extra work into supporting >5yr old hardware.

For about AUD$70 or less (likely a LOT less, or free, if you go secondhand - check Gumtree if in Australia, or Craigslist etc if USA or elsewhere) you can pick up something that’s DX11/12 capable, with playable performance, until you can afford something real nice.

OP’s issue is nothing to do with EAC, this is a DirectX issue, namely “D3D shader create error for shader [0x80070057] vs_5_0”, from the error logs. My google-fu shows no other issues which cause a crash-to-desktop at the “loading level procedural map” point.


Anyone who has checked and has a DX11-capable card, but is still getting a crash at “loading level procedural map”, should first check that their video card is being used for the game instead of any integrated graphics which may be present (see https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht078706 for example steps, though setting per-application is advisable to avoid draining battery when not gaming, if on a laptop), and reinstall DirectX 11 from Microsoft (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/179113).

thank you very much for your post gliktch
