So I have about 400 hours in rust, and play it quite often, so you can only imagine the annoyance to have the latest update break my game.
I speak for myself though, I don’t know of anyone else having any issues, but I’ve never had any kind of issue with rust before this, and now with the update, my game is completely broken!
So rust launches normally into the unity launcher, and then into the menu, everything is fine, I click to join a server, and it loads normally until it reaches “terrain textures” at which point my audio card crashes, and my computer becomes unusably slow/unresponsive, for the duration of up to 20 and sometimes 30 minutes. I also seem to lose connection to the internet in this time. Rust will eventually stop responding and crash, returning my computer to normal. I’ve never had this problem with rust before, and never with any other game. I’m a little disappointed because I do enjoy playing rust, but since thursday’s update, this has been happening everytime I try to join a server.
Like I said before though, my friends manage to load and connect without issue.
I went looking for a fix or someone having a similar issue, and it seems like there isn’t really anyone with a similar problem. I tried to verify my game, and even re-install entirely, but to no success.
Some help would be greatly appreciated! I couldn’t find any fixes online, so I’ve come to the forums in hopes of maybe figuring this out.
