Hi, I don't worry, i follow the game development since a year now, i'm not in a hurry. ^_^
I tried the new release and I still reproduce the crash.
I tried to dig a little bit more. It's not just with autosave but with manual as well.
Here what I do:
I create a new game
I place my headquarter
I select a tech like a any farm/orchard
I place one (or more)
I run a manual save, no error then but no file appear either in the save list.
I then run another save and the game freeze with the error I already reported in google drive.
NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
at ProjectAutomata.ComputePollutionStrategy.OnSavegameSerialize ()...
Because it was about pollution strategy, I tried to start game in other difficulty mode, no impact, it still freeze.
Extra info : i have a warning about my system not meeting minimum requirements when I launch the game :
Graphics shader level too low 46
Compute shaders unsupported
At first I didn't think I could be important because I thought it would be only some graphics things that won't display properly but now I read it again and see "Compute", I'm wondering if maybe this "Compute shader" may be used for some "ComputePollutionStrategy", sorry if it's the case ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Hope that help
Sorry for the delay. I rarely check the GOG forums (too little activity). Use Discord for instant support.
If you get that error is usually because your GPU is too old. Can you upload your dxdiag?
