ISSUE
Game crashes when I try to select "Settings"

DESCRIPTION
I try to adjust settings in the options menu and instead of going to the options screen it just closes the game as if I pressed At-F4
It does it every time, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game, but no change. Does not seem to happen anywhere else.

Could try renaming this folder C:\Program Files (x86)Steam\userdata\[YOUR UNIQUE USER ID]\228380\local\wreckfest to something like this \wreckfesttest.

This will tell you if the problem with one the save files. But this will set career and car5 files to the beginning, will wipe all the credits and cars you bought.

I have the same problem. No possibility to enter the game menu, I go back to Windows.
So no possibility to make any video or audio adjustments.
For me it's just unplayable. Thank you for giving me a quick answer, because I am a streamer and I will not advertise for this game if the problem is not solved very quickly.
Cordially.

"Because I am a streamer and I will not advertise for this game" - what kind of attiute is this? Fine, you reach out to people and spread the word - nice, but at same time, you are custommer like any other. And a quick read at the Steam forum shows that more people are having this issues. BB has reached out to them and are trying to find out what is going on and how to find a solution. But as with anything related to a computer - it's difficoult and it takes time finding a solution. Got to be a bit patient.

Hello, it's not because I'm streamer that it changes much (just that my subscribers are watching a game that crash, so it's not very seller).
Just that the game is an official version, not beta. So I find it normal to have a finished game, because we paid for it.
There may be problems, I grant you as every game, but generally, it does not take long to solve the problems.
There it starts to date a little. Yes I am impatient and I like this game, so I would not want to have a bad image, as well as other and future players.
Cordially.  ;)

I've never, ever had this problem. Not a single crash. Not denying it's existence, but PCs are difficult platform... cuz everyone has different hardware, different bg applications running. Reproducing and tracking issues may take a while

For everyone: What version you're using? 32 or 64? Does it crash if you change it?
Also have you verified your game files?
EDIT: I never had this kind problem with my Wreckfest (*knocks wood*), I'm just curious to hear what could cause this problem

There an 8GB version of 1060?  I got the 6GB back in April. Did Nvidia release a 8GB version recently?
