I understand this has worked well for some of you. Keen to hear if this resolves anybody else’s issues.

Just wanted to emphasise before I clock out for the night that we are very much aware of how critical this issue is (in addition to the internal_error), and it may seem like we’re being quiet on the matter - but the reality is we’re deep in investigation.

As soon as I have more information to share, I will!

I understand some players have been able to work around this by changing their DNS or using a VPN but I appreciate this isn’t ideal.

I’m merely the communicator, nothing will change if I head to bed. The smart people are still working. :wink:

They are also working on the current downtime as we speak.

We’re looking for somebody that is encountering the Backend Error and has Deadline exceeded in their console logs to help us with our investigation. You would need to be quite confident in working with your PC and willing to set a Windows Environment Variable though. Please reach out!

IMPORTANT! Our developers are asking if anybody with the Backend Error (NOTE: NOT the internal_error (Error Code: 2007) or any other error) can try the experimental branch in Steam, and see if that resolves their issue.

  4. Select ‘Betas’

NOTE: The experimental branch in Steam has been updated to include logging for other issues. The experimental branch now includes:

  • POTENTIAL Backend Error FIX. We understand this hasn’t worked for everybody, and are continuing to investigate
  • Additional logging for internal_error (Error Code: 2007)
  • Additional logging for nonexisting_channel (Error Code: 2001)
  • Additional logging for various GPU-related crashes, AND A POTENTIAL FIX!

Please note that the additional logging supports our investigation and will not necessarily solve the underlying issue for you at this time. We encourage anybody with these issues to use this branch, so we can continue work on addressing these issues as quickly as possible.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW FULLY! THANK YOU.

  1. Open the Steam client
  2. Right-click Darktide in your Steam library
  3. Select ‘Properties’
  4. Select ‘Betas’

Still experiencing Backend Error and have non-alphabetical characters, including spaces, in your character’s name? Try without!

Hyphens are OK.

An update has been pushed to the experimental build to address GPU-related crashes, in addition to internal_error (Error Code: 2007) and nonexisting_channel (Error Code: 2001).

Please let us know if you observe any adverse behaviour.

Were you able to play on the previous experimental build or not at all?
