#1 Divinity: Original Sin 2 Saving Issues

Some players encounter issues when they are trying to save or to load the game. Sometimes it crashes or the save files get corrupted and you are unable to load them.

Developers managed to release a hotfix for this issue pretty fast so you shouldn’t encounter this error anymore. But if you still do it make sure that you installed this latest patch, restart your game and Steam. You can also try this tutorial here for bugged saves if you updated the game and you are still unable to save.

First of all, thank you for your patience. We’ve had a few more problems in the last few days than we had hoped, but we’re working hard on fixing them. We’ll have them sorted out as quickly as we can.

We have good news for everyone who had problems with their savegames after a few hours of playing – we just released a hotfix that solves the problem. The existing savegames should work now.

We’re working on an additional hotfix to resolve some other problems you may have have noticed, and we’ll be releasing it in the next few days.

#2 Divinity: Original Sin 2 Crashes

A problem that is affecting only certain users is that the game might crash from time to time, either after playing a while or maybe on the launch screen. If you are one of the players that are encountering crashes, check our solutions below to fix them.

Solutions:

  • Try to play the game in windowed, or Fake full-screen mode
  • Try running the game in compatibility mode as Windows 7
  • For nvwgf2umx.dll crash: this crash is related to the Nvidia drivers. To fix it, you should do a clean install of the drivers and restart your PC after that.

#3 Divinity: Original Sin 2 Launch Issues

If your game won’t start or if you encounter some errors at the startup like missing some .dll’s check the steps below to fix them.

1. If the game fails to start, do the usual: check your video driver and update it if necessary.

2. Normally, Steam will install the following by default as you launch the game for the first time. If you don’t have these, please find them online at the following locations.

– Visual C++ Redist 2015

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145

Choose 64bit

– .Net 3.5

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21

Choose Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile (Web Installer)

3. If you are having issues with api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, Microsoft distributes an update to fix this issue.

#4 Divinity: Original Sin 2 Character Stuck

This is a relatively rare issue, which seems to be much rarer than the previous version, but it has still been reported a couple times (there were fixes for this in the last update, but apparently not covering every possible cause).

Saving and reloading should restore control of the character. Saves can be made during combat, so you don’t have to flee and return, or get through the fight with just the remaining party members.

#5 Divinity: Original Sin 2 UI/Resolution Issues

If you are encountering resolution or UI issues on a Nvidia card, go to the Nvidia control panel and disable the 3D Stereoscopic option.

#6 Divinity: Original Sin 2 Server Issues

Whenever I try to start the game the message “Connection to the Larian support server failed. The Larian support tool will be disabled. An exception occurred during a WebClient request. – Error creating the Web Proxy specified in the ‘system.net/defaultProxy’ configuration section.”. The game itself launches just fine, but I can’t get in the arena and can’t play the SP campaign either, it just remains stuck on loading forever.

@Larian Forum

 

If you are complaining about connectivity issues, make sure that you checked your antivirus/firewall and that it’s not blocking the game. After that, do a general connection troubleshoot. Resetting network adapter also seems to have fixed the issue for some. Sometimes, running the game as admin also resolves these kinds of connectivity issues.
