Generator randomly shutting down

Postby Christinamari » Sat Mar 07, 2020 9:27 pm

Anyone else find the generator frequently shuts down while you're working? I've lost work a few times, and now I'm saving everytime I make a change, but of course I then forgot for awhile, and that's when it usually decides to crash. Just now, I opened the generator, no game opened, did nothing, and it shut itself down after about 30 seconds. I'm on Windows 10.

You mean the Developer. I can't say ive had the developer crash by itself when nothing is loaded, i have had some crashes where the top window space has a red x (but that is rare) and i have to force close the application. But i do often manually save and even make backups once in a while. Autosave would be be nice. But for it to crash on you and often, sounds weird. I don't know what to suggest. Do you have any other PC issues in general?

Me neither. I can't remember having a single crash with the developer.
Maybe a silly question, but have you tried to reinstall Adrift?
The only other possibility I can think of is that perhaps you have another program running that conflicts with Adrift.

Sorry, developer - don't know why I said generator! I don't have anything much on this laptop, as it's so new. I think I'll just have to keep saving a lot. I noticed it got better after writing that first post though - I went about 30 min without it shutting down on me. Typical! Thanks for the responses, guys!
