I am experiencing a strange crash mid game. It does not always occur, perhaps about 50% of games. In the logs of games that have crashed, I noticed that a warning is thrown:
warning: attempt to retrieve annotation from unknown technique AeonBuildNoAnimation warning: c:\work\rts\main\code\src\libs\gpggal\EffectD3D9.cpp(89) invalid effect technique requested: AeonBuildNoAnimation
The graphics engine completly shuts down, flashing and glitching. It is completly frozen. If I alt+tab and return, it is black. The game still runs in the background with sound and it does not cause a disconnect, but it is obviously completely unplayable.
I have latest nvidia drivers, and have tried restarting, validating files on steam and disabling nvidia's overlays and extra-features. No luck.
Would anyone be able to shed some light on this issue for me please? Sample of logs attached.
