Firefighting Simulator – Fatal Error – Game is Crashing – How to fix
It looks like a lot of players are facing an issue where Firefighting Simulator The Squad would crash for them after a “Fatal Error” message. The thing that is happening is, the game is crashing to desktop and a new window is popping up that says “The UE4-FG game has crashed and will close“.
A lot of people have lost progress due this error so you can imagine how frustrated the community is getting at the moment. So the question is, can this issue be fixed?
How to fix this issue
Let me tell you, I have personally encountered this bug and fortunately I have successfully managed to fix this issue. The “Fatal Error” happened to me at least four times within a time span of just 20 minutes. I really needed to fix this error as I play games and post guides on them regularly. So an error like that can really harm my pace of content creation.
So, looking for a fix I went to the Steam discussions page of Firefighting Simulator. And to my surprise, an user had already posted about this issue. When I opened the post I found out that one of the developers of the game has commented on it. He has suggested some fixes in fact.
To be on the safe side, please try to deactivate all running anti virus and/or anti malware software when starting the game.
I had Windows Defender running in the background. So I went ahead and turned it completely off and I also went on Steam and verified the in-game files of the game. After the verification process was completed, I restarted the game.
Let me tell you, it has been more than 24 hours and the game has not crashed even once. Another user on the same post confirmed that he has a anti-malware software running in the background, and turning it off did the job for him:
Emisoft Anti-Malware reacted with the game. The program did not have a tray icon, so I had forgotten it was installed at all. I simply un-installed it, but i am sure there is a way to make exeptions or temp disable it.
Anti-malware often reacts to denuvo, and its prob the cause. not the game it self.
Only when I looked in Windows Event Viewer did I find the cuasing program of the crash. Hit windows key, and type: event
Then sort by date/time, this might give good information on cause of crash.
For me the good info was in the warnings made by windows right after the error
