Have tried all of these (except Benchmark. More on that further) with no results.
Played the game up until one of the first missions from Camp, where you go hunt hare and a bear afterwards. Right when i started tailing its’ tracks, the game dropped the “err_gfx_state” error. Tried three more times and the game crashes about the same spot. Started to look for solutions and when i needed to go to in-game Graphic settings, game started to crash upon going in any of the settings with the same error. Graphic, Display, Controlls, General (all of them). So, i’ve tried all these solutions and more, including making empty 0kB files to replace the existing “SGA” files and making them “Read-Only”.
