Fix: Conan Exiles crashes back to main menu

Conan Exiles just got out of Early Access but players still encountered various technical issues while playing it. Many players recently reported they are kicked back to the main menu soon after they hit the play button. The bad news is that there is only one solution available to fix this problem, and it doesn’t work for all players. This issue appears to be quite a severe one, and most likely a hotfix is necessary to permanently fix it.

Conan Exiles returns to main menu

Here’s how one player describes this issue:

I was able to play the game until today. Iam trying to connect to a server and it connects and see my character and then I get server connection lost and am returned to main menu. I’ve been trying for hours and can’t stay connected to a server.

Conan Exiles has received a series of updates lately, but they only seem to be making things worse. Oddly enough, gamers report they can connect to empty servers, but they get kicked to the main menu when they want to connect to particular servers.

Fix Conan Exiles returns to main menu

As stated above, the following fix doesn’t work for all players. However, it’s worth following the instructions if you’re constantly being kicked back to the main menu.

  1. Log out of Steam
  2. Go to the Steam install folder > delete the config folder
  3. Run Steam again as Administrator
  4. Log in again and enter your Steamguard token if you have one > launch Conan Exiles again.

The root-cause of this issue seems to be an invalid Steam user ID ticket. By reentering your login information again, you refresh your session and this temporarily eliminates the bug.

Keep in mind that you need to:

  • Log in fresh to Steam between games, so as to refresh your Steam sessions
  • Run Steam as root/with admin privileges
  • Keep the overlay off.

If you’ve come across other workarounds to fix this issue, feel free to list the troubleshooting steps in the comment section below. Conan Exiles was launched only a few hours ago but Funcom already pushed a major update to make the game more stable and reliable. We’re sure that the company will roll out new hotfixes in the coming weeks in order to fix as many of the issues reported by early gamers as possible.
