Constant crashing

26 posts in this topic

I haven't seen anybody mention it here and only a post from June 2021 on reddit with no solutions but I can do free roam, side activities, dlc with no issues but if I started the main story Pierce quest called Trafficking then the game gets to his dialogue saying something about his demo tape and it crashes always at the exact same part each time.

 

Unable to proceed past this mission. I tried doing the trafficking side mission without activating the main story quest from him which essentially is the same thing but no luck. Any tips?

I finished the story without issue so the only thing I can think of is to start a new game from scratch and see what happens :(.

Have you tried deleting the game and reinstalling it? Also, try starting a new game on a separate save file. Make sure to rotate your save files to reduce the risk of save corruption. As I recall, some games have massive bloating issues or corruption when overwriting save files too often.

Thanks both will try a new save. I did reinstall with no luck so hopefully a new save will fix it. Will report back when I get round to it

UPDATE: Starting a fresh save on a fresh ps5 install did NOT resolve this sadly. No point keeping the game now.

Are you playing the dedicated PS5 version or the PS4 original via Backwards Compatibility? This is a long shot but have you tried playing without any patches installed?

Yep dedicated ps5 version. I managed to get a work around for this mission only. Had to install ps4 version and complete the mission then continue the save on the dedicated ps5 version and so far no issues. Very annoying having to redo the intro missions of the game again but at least it's working now. Ps5 version was a download so was unable to remove any patches from what I could see.

Wish I tried this now as would be interesting if it worked. Where did you find this solution as googling came up with nothing of the sort?

That's such a shame mine is working OK for now after using ps4 version to get past the 1st trafficking mission but no idea how to fix it for dlc. Perhaps try disconnecting from online like above suggestion. Fingers crossed for you.

Anyone else having any luck with turning off the network? Mine crashed consistently at the exact same spot and I haven't touched it since last week when it failed. Really sucks, hoping it gets fixed ASAP

I found that it plays better with the network turned off (game constantly crashes randomly for me) , however found that trophies don't pop until you turn it back on then they all pop at once 🤔

Shouldn’t have to turn off a network because a company can’t code. Done supporting them. I mean not that the new saints row looks good. So no big loss there. Just can’t believe a remastered game is crashing so much. Goes to show it was rushed.

Faster, More Intense first mission keeps crashing on me as soon as I get to the first set after driving the car.

I just ended up playing the ps4 version and doing the mission causing the issue as soon as then continuing on dedicated ps5 version. Annoying as shouldn't have to do that and also now have an incomplete list on ps4

I had no crashing through the course of the whole game and the DLCs. Some trophies didn't pop though

Same here this is the only real problem i've had with the game it keeps on crashing just as i enter the Guard Base in the Gangsta's in Space DLC's first mission, its crashed here twice.

It crashed one other time but ican't remember where it did it, also Cyrus Temples Face won't render properly (more funny than anything).

Has the update fixed anything, Someone said there was a update Friday, Did that fix the space dlc? First mission the game keeps crashing on me everytime i get to the guard area and get of the car, Thats when it starts crashing on me.

That patch was only for the dedicated PS5 version and going by the reportedly small file size, it's unlikely to have fixed anything important.

The update seem allow for for trophies to auto pop. For ppl having crashing issues try playing on a friends server.

Uninstalling and reinstalling game, rebuilding database and starting a new save seems to have fixed the crash issue during the trafficking mission.

I am getting the same problem. I reached out to the company, and they said to unplug the PS5 to delete temporary files. This DID NOT work. I have the downloaded game, not disc. 
 

For people saying to play the PS4 version through the mission and switch back to PS5, does that mean having to redo all other gameplay done so far?

Yep will have to redo it all as your ps4 one will be a fresh save if working backwards and continuing on ps5
