There are few things that are more frustrating than when a game crashes during a multiplayer session, especially when playing with friends. Some developers mitigate this by offering a reconnect feature in their games. However, with Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment has decided that players should not join new games. This means that breaks in the game must be extremely rare.
This is a fact that seems to be familiar to Raspawn, and if the latest patch is an indication, the developer is required to put Apex Legends as close to a crash-free experience as possible. In a patch released for PC on Friday afternoon, the company said it introduced brand-new tools to the PC version of the game with the Season 1
These tools include a crash reporter that gives Respawn a detailed breakdown of why Apex Legends crashed over the apex_crash.txt folder. This folder provides users with a useful way to find the problem that affected them, and then report them to Respawn to ensure that the crash does not recur or can be resolved in the future.
Friday's patch represents the first results Respawn received from the Crash Reporter and contains a number of fixes for common crashes based on data collected by Respawn. According to Respawn, this patch introduces fixes for almost every common crash, except for a few rare issues and the "out-of-memory" issue, which is still very rare for most players.
Because Respawn decided to fix it It's good to see that Respawn provides a small patch like this to fix crashes on the PC. As the company further refines the stability of Apex Legends hopefully it will also find better ways to report crashes to facilitate the occurrence of even more rare events.
