Game crashes on start

Hi Wolcen team,

a few days after Hotfix 1.1.4 the game crashes on startup and steam will crash simultaneously. Played it with Patch 1.1.4 a few times but suddenly the game fails at starting into main menu or creates Memory allocation error while loading a game session. Cant start a single game since it first happened. ATM even the memory allocation error window doestn show up. I get thrown right back to my desktop.

I tried:
-changing settings to absolute minimum
-fiddled with vsync, resolution and windows/Borderless etc.
-reinstalled the game
-reinstalled steam
-updated drivers (complete reinstall)

I run the game on win 10 1803, nvidia gtx980, intel i7

Hi, i have almost the same issue too. I just got the game, i installed it and when i tried to play, the wolcen game window show up for a few seconds before crashing and sometimes with steam, i have no error report or whatever, i just click on play and the game crash a few seconds after.
I'm also running the game on windows 10 with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti intel(R)-core(TM) i7-4770 CPU 3.4GHz 8GB RAM.
I don't know i thought it was because i didn't have enough RAM at first but i have some friend who can play with a lower config so...
Anyways i hope someone could help, the game seems awesome.

The last Content Patch generated quite a large amount of memory issues and we're working on improvements to avoid that. In the meantime, there is a way to solve this problem on your side if you want to.

I've made a card on Trello with the manipulations, it seems to work for a lot of players with the issue you're describing, but it might affect a bit your computer performance (although there is also a chance that you notice no change at all):

It's only a temporary fix while we work on this issue on our side so you can at least play the game in normal conditions.
