Hangs loading larger game save. Runs fine loading tiny save.

Recommended Posts

I have Summer release 2019 running on Steam under Windows 7.

I can load a small save, the one I made right after landing. But it hangs while trying to load my only other save representing 150 hours of play with many  tethers on several planets, many large item etc.  

When it hangs, the only thing on the screen that moves is the mouse. The screen is frozen for Astroneer and all other apps. I cannot even CTRL ALT DEL, and cannot Sleep. Hard Power Down is the only way forward.

I have settings in Steam for the app to always update.  I turned all graphics setting to minimum. Like primitive clouds, ec.. 

This has happened off and on ever since I bought Astroneer right after 1.0 came out.  Usually I could wait a day and by then another fix was released that fixed it I assume. It was always a situation of 'I hope I can play Astroneer today'. 


I do have an old graphics card and I get this warning, but AMD doesnt seem to have a 17.12.1 install for my HD5700:
