Mods are causing total war warhammer to crash for some reason

Emrhys42Emrhys42 Registered Users Posts: 6
As the title says, mods are causing my copy of TW Warhammer to crash, except when they're disabled. I only know that this started happening some time after TW Warhammer 2 launched, and this was never a problem up until then. I can't shake this feeling that TWW 2 is connected to this somehow.

    I know mods are not necessary to play this game, but good help will be appreciated.

    Is it all mods or just particular ones?

    are you by any chance running in directx 12 mode when I did that on WH1 I had the same problem as you

    snip

    It's much easier and more fun to get engrossed in lore that takes itself seriously and tries to make sense within its own frame of reference.

    the reason I prefer LOTR over warhammer fantasy and 40k

    I am dutch so if you like to have a talk in dutch shoot me a PM :)

    This is all mods for me as well. Every time I try to load a campaign I get the "total warhammer 2 has experienced a problem and is shutting down" error. I am on DX11 mode. It was working fine until the recent game update.

    I deleted all mods and it still crashes on all previous campaigns that had the mods.

    How can I get this to work?

    No, I wasn't running this in DX 12 when this happened. But speaking of which, the start up menu and the graphics options say that DirectX 12 is in beta. Anyone have any idea what that's all about.

    You cant load a save game that uses mods before especially mods that changes campaign features.

    Crashes when using multioke mods may due to conflict between some mods or maybe even caused by 1 mod which has not been updated.

    It can be a few things

    1 your mods are outdated

    2 you are loading up a save that uses mods you aren't using anymore

    3 mods are interfering with eachother

    4 sometimes mods can work properly on startup but crash when you load in a battle, it means someone made a tiny little mistake somewhere while creating the mod. As a modder myself these are usually solved very quickly.

    5 something bugged out or got corrupted. You might need to reinstall if this is the case. You can also try verifying game files and unsubbing and resubbing all your mods.

    My case happened after some time after the Rise of The Tomb Kings DLC. Even after I installed the DLC, mods worked normally, but when I returned in February, TWWII would crash at start if I had more than 3 mods running. Tell me that CA did something that screwed with the game's stability.

    The best approach is to make a list of the set of mods that each save game is using. Then make sure you have the appropriate mods active (and no extra ones) when you load the save game.

    The number of mods shouldn't matter, so long as you don't have mods that conflict with each other. The more mods you have, the more likely that there may be conflicts.

    Also, with respect to the original poster, TWW2 should not impact TWW1 mods.

    Yep what LestaT said. Most of the time you can’t load old saves with required mods not loaded. Also sometimes even after the required mids r updated, old saves won’t Work. Basically it is an opportunity to rationalise your mods and try a new campaign. Sorry.

    Oh yeah basically I cleaned up my data folder deleting old mods and started afresh.
