I have never had problems playing GW2, even today I did play few bg-s, but just now when I started the game I got crashes all the time as soon as I open the .exe fail.
I apply screenshot of the fatal error I do get:

    Without fail.

  • Crashes at the character select screen as soon as I hit play. I am running d912pxy tho, given this games 'old' graphics API, but that's not been a problem in the past.

    I uninstalled d912pxy, and after that the game worked again. Perhaps you got this too?

    yup, seems there's something in the new build that d912pxy really doesn't like.

    Lets hope for an update :) I really hate to run without it. too much slows..

  • Yeah I had to remove d912pxy too, I'd forgotten how bad this game performs without it...

    Please anet, if one developer without access to the GW2 source code can implement this, surely your own devs can too...

  • D912pxy folder was moved to wrong place it seems. Just cut and paste it from /Addons to games root folder.

  • Glad to see I ain't the only one who's had his game pretty much sh*tcanned with this update. Game working fine one minute- 3min patch install later, and boom, game is suddenly unable to run at all.

    Really don't wanna uninstall D912pxy...please hurry and fix this, ANet.

    Same here too. Working after uninstalling D912pxy. Probably needs to be patched in order to work with the new update.

    Yep, had to uninstall d912pxy. Also, for me, the remove method supplied did not work. Had to manually delete the dll from bin64 too.

    It's not ArenaNet that needs to fix anything, but the add-on creator.

    I reinstalled d912pxy several times. Does not work. Bug already raised on github. Hopefully there will be a new version soon.

  • Uninstalled D912pxy, and now it's working again. Fingers crossed github make a new version soon.

  • Ashantara.8731Ashantara.8731 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Works fine for me. No crashes whatsoever.

  • Crono.4197Crono.4197 Member ✭✭

    It crashes for people using D912pxy. Uninstalling it will fix the issue. At least it did for me and many others.

  • I don't know how to uninstall it, becouse I just did delete the folder for dx12 but then the game did other error, so I did install it back again.. and again the fatal error. How to proper uninstall it?

  • aspirine.6852aspirine.6852 Member ✭✭✭✭

    run the installer and the last question should be what you want to do with it. uninstall is an option there.

  • Jong.5937Jong.5937 Member ✭✭✭

    Just using the installer to "remove" did not work for me. Had to manually delete d3d9.dll in bin64 too.

    Developer says it's fixed in current d912pxy release: https://github.com/megai2/d912pxy/issues/358#issuecomment-814422414

    Can confirm, its a really dramatic difference between the DX12pxy vs normal gw2 for me, not having it makes the game skip around and stutter alot but with it its 100% smooth so its like.. Absolutely needed.

  • I never have issues with the client but I cannot get my client to patch. I also get the same error trying to install a fresh install from the web download.

    Where are the temp files??

  • THe game keeps crashing even with the new dx12 updade... I deleted the dx12 and game started freezing. Witout dx12 the game lag and spikes alot for me :(

  • aspirine.6852aspirine.6852 Member ✭✭✭✭

    The new update worked for me, that was a quick fix from the maker(s) of d912pxy..

  • Jong.5937Jong.5937 Member ✭✭✭

    The update to d912pxy works fine here too. d912pxy can be finicky to uninstall or upgrade. It is worth manually uninstalling and reinstalling fresh.
