Frequent Freezing and Crashing on ETS2 Singleplayer and Multiplayer



Hi all,


So I've been having this issue ever since I have built my new computer. I used to play on a low end computer and I never had this issue. Whenever I play ETS2 and I do certain things my game will crash, for example. It crashes when I do the following:


Leave the game via the exit buttons.

Press continue on the job de-briefing.


It can be really annoying since I will always have to restart my computer since it will not even allow me to open task manager. I know there is a simple fix to this but it's just the matter of finding it.


Please note: The issues will still happen no matter if I'm playing singleplayer or multiplayer. 


Many thanks,

You can do these:

- Make sure that the driver version of your graphic card is the most up-to-date.
- Delete the file My Documents / Euro Truck Simulator 2 / config.cfg and try to enter the game.
- Try playing with a new save.


Hope it can help you.

Kind regards

The way to fix this is:

Step 1. 
Right click your 'Euro Truck Simulator 2 Multiplayer' / 'American Truck Simulators Multiplayer' .exe file, whether it be the shortcut on the desktop or actual file and then click properties.

Step 2.
If you right clicked it's shortcut, make sure you clicked the shortcut tab.
If you clicked the .exe file, make sure you are on the general tab.
You should see a section say: (   Target: "C:\Program Files\TruckersMP\launcher_ets2mp.exe"   ) OR it's custom install path. (Minus the brackets)
What you need to do is on the end of it, add: (   -homedir C:\Users\Michael\Documents\ETS2MP   ) 
It should look something like: (   Target: "C:\Program Files\TruckersMP\launcher_ets2mp.exe" -homedir C:\Users\Michael\Documents\ETS2MP ) If you understand what the -homedir fuction does, feel welcome to change it, if you are worried or don't know what to do, just leave it as it is. If you have a problem, message me on Steam CurlySaga

1) Try updating your drivers or make sure they are up to date.

2) Right click ETS2 in your Steam library, click "Properties",  "Local Files" and then "Verify Integrity of Game Files" . This will repair any potentially corrupt files in your game without having to reinstall. If you also have any mods enabled make sure to disable those.

3) If that doesn't work try loading from an earlier auto save.
