Hi @Nystilix,

Have you made any changes or updates to your PC in this time?

We’re still investigating the causes of Shader cache builder process errors. It’s a shot in the dark, but I recommend to try performing a clean re-installation of Darktide, as this can sometimes help more complex issues.

This involves uninstalling Darktide as normal, and then proceeding to remove your AppData directory by:

  1. Press the Windows key + R
  2. Enter %appdata% within the search input and select ‘OK’
  3. Navigate to: AppData\Roaming\Fatshark
  4. Delete the entire ‘Darktide’ directory

Please be aware that by removing your AppData, you will lose any custom configurations such as keybindings. Your progress won’t be impacted, as it’s stored on our servers.

Afterwards, you can then reinstall Darktide as normal.

Let me know how this goes.
