Request for update on issue with Elite Dangerous crashing on Startup

Good evening!

 

On 17th April I added the following post:-

https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-ARC-Graphics/Elite-Dangerous-Crashes-on-startup-using-latest-driver-31-0-101/td-p/1477725

 

There were several other people who contributed in the discussion reporting the same experience.

 

I installed the latest driver today (31.0.101.4499) and found that the game still crashes on startup at the planet generation stage on startup, so no improvement so far.

 

I note that the game developer has indicated a problem with more recent intel drivers (Elite Dangerous Update 15 Release Notes - Elite Dangerous: Odyssey) in the known issues section.

 

I wanted to ask if this is on the intel driver developer radar; disappointingly I don't see any mention of this in the known issues section of the driver release notes, and obviously we've had this issue out there for almost 2 months now.

 

I understand that a key part of driver development at the moment is a general improvement of DX11 games, of which Elite is one, and would hate to not have my game work with these improvements going forwards.

 

Meanwhile, back to driver version 31.0.101.4257 for me.

 

Thanks and regards,

 

Steve

I am waiting for an update on this as well... 

I can't keep jumping back and forth between an old Driver (31.0.101.4257) just for 1 game.

Hi Hugo,

 

many thanks for that.

 

It's frustrating trying new driver after new driver with no fix and no feedback.

 

Best Regards,

Hello Steve 

 

Im complete done with Intel.

The support was kidding me 2 times over 2 months.

 

I've already sold everything. CPU, Mainboard and yes also the A770.

I wish you, Steve all the best and hope Intel will seriously find a way for those bugs with ED.

Thank you Bladan for the update on the latest driver - I don't need to try it for myself now!

 

Thank you Hugo for getting back to me with the information on progress.

 

Might it be possible to put the status of Elite Dangerous into the Driver release notes? At least that way we could quickly see that it was not yet fixed (or even fixed at some point) and save the time and hassle required to update driver and then revert the driver unnecessarily.

 

Thanks and Regards,

 

Steve

While waiting to see if Hugo is able to get a line added in the release notes indicating that Elite Dangerous is still crashing on startup, I would like to share that in fact it does still crash on startup with new beta driver 31.0.101.4514.

Hello Steve_NB


We have passed your feedback and requested for this issue to be added to the driver release notes, however, please note that this is not guaranteed as the team in charge will need to consider it before adding it to the document. We have also created an article related to the issue so other customers know we are working on it. Please note that even though at the moment the issue is not in the release once there is a fix, the fix will be outlined in the release notes.

Hi Hugo,

thank you very much for the update.

 

I just cleaned my system of the old driver using DDU, installed 4644, and fired up Elite.

 

The planetary generation system stalled at 0% for quite a while, but eventually carried on, and Elite successfully started.

 

Looks good so far, but I will put in a full gaming session later for better test. After all, lots of updates have happened since the last driver that worked with Elite (4257) and any of them could have broken Elite in other places

 

But seriously, thank you to yourself and the team very much for putting the time and effort in to address this.

 

Best Regards,

 

Steve
