Resolved [e1.5.7 beta] Crashes when interacting with Looters (multiple causes explained).

Users who are viewing this thread

Version number
No, I didn't use any mods.


After the hotfix it got worse - now it's crashing 100% of the time when I catch looters if I have a crafted weapon in my inventory. If I smelt all of those, then everything is fine.
bleak, looks like i'll be abandoning my playthrough until next update :sad:



i have the same crash, one with a 57 looter group another with a 7 looter group
before installing the new update, i have no problem in engaging looters with crafted items, only after the new fix it crashes 100%


I am having same issue with looter crash. I have reproduced it many times consecutively. I have found that crashing stops after removing all crafted items from my inventory and my parties equipped items


There is no need to remove crafted items on your character or followers. Just remove them from inventory.


Sounds like one of the latest changes to crafting is causing issues.
Maybe this:
• Fixed the player crafted items piling up in towns.
But good to know there seems to be a workaround. Thanks guys for the info!
I have been crashing after trying to initiate any looter battle and I have uploaded multiple crash dumps. Here is the latest:


I have tried making a new save and reloading/restarting , it still happens.

Edit: I had to discard the only crafted weapon from my inventory in order to workaround the issue.


It's happening to me and I haven't done any smithing of any kind. But I did trade items in the Western Empire. For some reason if I get rid of some of my troops in my party it will let me attack the looters once or twice but then it crashes again when I try to attack looters

The fix for this issue have not pushed to the game yet. We are hoping to push it with the next hotfix.

everytime i attack looter in any number i just does endless load from any save pioint is there still no fix
Were you able yo use the crash uploader after the crashes? It is nearly impossible for us to reproduce most of the crashes. With an uploaded dump file of the crash, we can debug the issue. If you are still experiencing this issue please use the crash uploader and send us the crash identifier so that we can find it. You will see the identifier after the upload is completed and you can copy it on the dialogue window.

I had the same problem and i uploaded the crash report every time it crashed.

And i made a seperated thread here which no one paid attention to https://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php?threads/problems-with-version-1-5-7.437799/


Every time I try to attack looters nonspecific to size of group my game crashes but it doesn't give me the crash info it just doesn't infinite loading screen. I've tried everything that everyone else has on these threads as far as the blacksmithing and everything else and I am getting the same results please help. I've already uploaded my save file to the site you guys send me in my email. But I've heard nothing back since please help
Just out of Interest (had similar crashes after outlaw battles):
Do you guys have any kinds of mods / especially "Kill Bandits Raise Relations" installed / active (which seems to be especially broken right now) (except for the original poster)


its been a week and still crashing on looters I have a save that I can start from but after I visit any town, whether I interact with it or not, I get an infinite loading screen and no crash uploader ever appears. I have uploaded the save file along with my info and the link u requested.... PLZ HELP!!!
