Crash on Save Baldur’s Gate 3
Saving the game in Baldur’s Gate 3 causes crash from time to time. It is absolutely the worst because all the progress gets lost… So, is it fixable? Not entirely. But there are some ways to reduce this problem.
Baldur’s Gate 3 save crashes happens mostly because of bugged items. I am not sure which specific items cause this issue. However, after getting rid of some suspicious items, you can reduce this BG3 save crash issue tremendously.
Mostly item hoarders encounter this problem. It seems food items are causing it. Especially if you separate your foods between group members to avoid encumbrance.
Also don’t have any food in your camp because it triggers the same problem.
Get rid of the parts of the spear vision of the absolute too because it is one of those bugged items causing crash.
Crash on Rest Baldur’s Gate 3
Crash on rest and crash on save in Baldur’s Gate 3 are caused by the same root problem. Bugged items…
In order to fix crash on rest, first you must get rid of the bugged items. Crash causing bugged items in Baldur’s Gate 3 are foods, empty bottles, and parts of the vision of the absolute spear.
By the way, after having a big combat, save first before looting… That is one way to avoid crash on save/rest problem…
BG3 Crash After Tutorial
That is an interesting one. Can’t say for sure what causes it. But there are some ways to avoid that. First, try creating a new character and speed-run the tutorial to see if it still crashes. If it does, that’s bad news. But not entirely un-fixable.
Second way is frustrating but whatever. You must go to the end of tutorial and save before finishing the tutorial. Then re-load until it doesn’t crash. It might work after couple of attempts.
BG3 Performance Issues
Performance issues sometimes gets fixed after switching between DirectX 11 and Vulkan. First thing should be switching graphic engine. Then of course graphical settings must be lowered to test FPS. If nothing fixes your Baldur’s Gate 3 performance issue, maybe it is time to upgrade your PC.
Optimization in Baldur’s Gate 3 is debatable.
Baldur’s Gate 3 engine is great and optimized. Still, BG3 is in the early access and will be optimized better in the future. Therefore, you might want to wait for full release.
