Starting on cycle 12, the game has been freezing, the image is static, but the audio continues and it sounds like the game keeps running in the background. Using space bar causes audio of duplicants to halt or continue. Has occurred on this one save at least 6 times, twice after updating my Nvidia drivers and performing a full restart. There's no single action I'm taking when it crashes, as it has happened when I'm doing nothing, or ordering a mess mopped up, etc. Game won't generate a crash report, or if it tries, I can't navigate the menus blind.
This is the exact video freezing issue I ran into in late August when I first purchased, and later refunded the game as there was seemingly no help coming.
Attempted fresh save after verifying game files. Reached cycle 18, crashed twice more.
Steps to Reproduce
Occurred on or after cycle 12, multiple actions were being done, no obvious cause. Edit: Reached cycle 18 before crashing twice, once while giving no commands, second time while building tile. Duplicants may have finished a research or gained skill up based on audio cue, can't confirm due to video freezing.
This issue has not been confirmed by a developer yet.
