Do you have more RAM and does the game still crashes?

I’ve got 4GB of ram and the game still crashes for me. I’m using Windows 7, I’m not sure if that makes any difference.

Okay, changed the headline, please post your error log (steamapps\common\gems of war), if it’s different from mine.

Windows 7 and 4 GB RAM for me too.

People who has their game crash: is it 32 or 64 bit Windows?

Other people: does anyone have the game working on a 32 bit Windows?

I have a 64 bit Windows 7, and after 15 minutes of loading, the game started. Then I’ve tried to turn off all these very necessary fancy animations and set the game to lower settings for my 7 years old laptop to handle it, and since that, it just stops.

I’ve made a screencap. I get no error reports and the tips at the bottom keeps rotating, but the loading stops right there. Tried to restart Steam, restarted the game 3 times, waited about 20 minutes for it to load, nothing happened…

I really like this game and I wish to keep playing, so please, do something, Dev Team!:cry:


32-bit operating system, x64-based processor

I was able to barely start the game with 1,6 GB RAM usage. After toning down the graphics from epic to common the RAM usage decreased very much. Since then, the game boots up much faster.

Can you change the graphics setting manually from outside the game (in a text file e.g.)?

Yes, that’s what I want to know too, because as I’ve written it down above, it seems like the game either doesn’t registered my changes, or it did and that’s why it refuses to start…

Also does not start!

Before update it was only using 300mb of RAM. now it’s around 1.8GB.
I am able to open the game, but can not do multi task anymore.
The 1,8GB RAM for just a 3 match game is just too high IMO.



the memory supposed-to-be-leaked reserved in advance. :joy:

To change graphics settings outside of game hold down Alt when you hit the play button in Steam you should get a window like this (if it doesn’t appear, make sure you’re holding Alt even after you click till it does):

Change the Graphics Quality to the lowest. It should change things down to “Common” in game.


Yeah,and im sure they dont know what causing this nonsense,now i cant even do Gw,so my guild will suffer too.This game graphics are almost nonexistent,i dunno what went wrong,but now it cant even load for me,and i play games like Lol with full graphics.No idea how something can go this wrong.
