Steam Version, windows 10, Worked once, won't work now

Post by Spectre771 » Wed Jul 01, 2020 9:08 pm

I updated the video drivers and was able to play a complete introduction game which took several hours. The next day I tried to play and it crashed after 4 moves. Now it doesn't even load up. Same error message each time.

The attachment Error Message.jpg is no longer available


Log files are attached

Thank you

The crash is related with Nvidia drivers, that's all I can say.
Are you sure that your Nvidia drivers are fully updated?
I know it's a Quadro and they don't update at the same rhythm these cards as they do with real game cards.
I've have nothing else to suggest but to reinstall the drivers.


Or you can play in OpenGL version instead of Vulkan. Please do the following:
Open Steam client and in your games library click with the right mouse button over the Warhammer 40,000 Gladius - Relic of War. In the new window click on "Betas" tab. Under "Select the beta you would like to opt for:", select "legacy 1.2.6 Tyranids (OpenGL 4.0)" from the drop down menu. Close the window and run the game.

Please note that in this case, the versions are supported, but will not receive further patches and will not be able to get the newer DLCs, such as Chaos. So if your computer currently cannot support the Vulkan update, then this will be the case for you, where you need to use the OpenGL update and then will not be able to run future patches or DLC.

Thank you. I will give this steps a shot. The one time the game worked, I had just updated the drivers. I'll try the drivers again, then switch over to the options you suggest.

It appears to be working now. I have played several times today and the game is running smoothly and quickly.

The default driver installer from nVidia didn't install the latest drivers for my card and the website didn't list any drivers at all. I contacted tech support and they sent me a direct link for Jun24, 2020 video drivers.

Thank you for the assistance.
