Game freezes when leaving Mystery lake, entering The Ravine


Recommended Posts

As the title implies,

the game freezes everytime I leave mytery lake (railroad near the dam) into the ravine..

It has happened 4 or 5 times in a row yet I seem to get a little further each time, until I check my inventory or run etc...

any suggestions? all help appreciated.

Hey Shan! Could you post your debug log?

On PC, the log is written to the data directory for the game. For Steam, this would look like: C:\TheDirectoryYouInstalledSteamTo\steamapps\common\TheLongDark\tld_Data\output_log.txt

For Mac, the debug log is written to: ~/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log

Note that ~ above is your home folder (little house icon).

I'd say split it into 2 files and post in consecutive posts. It's just a .txt file so you can use Notepad copy and paste the first half and name output_log1 and take the other copy and paste it into a new file and call output_log2. Hopefully that will fit :]

Thnaks for that, seems to have done the trick! I've now made it ino coastal highway.

I got caught in a blizzard but made it to the small building at the train unloading area.

However, when I entered the building the graphics have now become a little dodgy with parts "blacking out" then coming back when I walked to the specific area

Could you try going to Low settings please.

Also could you run this please. Not sure if you did or not yet I see it was mentioned.

In Steam interface, click on "LIBRARY".

In games list, right click on "The Long Dark".

Choose "Properties"


Paste into text box "-force-d3d9" without the quotes

Click "OK".

Click "CLOSE".
