StarCrawlers is a modern version of a classic RPG dungeon crawler set in a spacepunk universe. As a player, your task is to assemble a crew of renegade adventurers to take on dirty jobs that include hunting bounties, sabotaging rivals and conducting corporate espionage.

StarCrawlers will also put your troubleshooting skills to the test. Players report the game is affected by a series of bugs. In this article, we’re going to list the most common StarCrawlers issues reported by gamers so that you know what to expect.

StarCrawlers reported bugs

Game save won’t work

Well, the good news is that I only lost two hours of play time. The bad news is that all of my main character saves, both in the station and in the field, were lost after I exited the game and tried to reload. Field saves gave me a blank screen. […] Thank you for reminding me why day-one purchaces on games are a bad idea. I guess I’ll wait a month for you to fix the problems before coming back.


Never had this problem during early access, but after 1.0 today, during combat, attacks are causing a slight hitch. Is this a known issue and is there a workaround? This is really off putting, especially in what up until now has been a very fun game that played flawlessly.

StarCrawlers crashes

So i was playing tonight and, after 40 minutes => game crashed.
Don’t know why, don’t know what caused it, I already played more than 40 minutes on a run without problems …

Dialog won’t scroll

Happened a few times now that when talking with a rep a part of what he’s saying isn’t known to me, because it goes behind the window and I cannot scroll :s Please fix this, it’s quite annoying to miss potentially vital info.

Players can’t start a new game

When startting a new character, and after selecting backstory choices from several pages, I get to the last one and while the “Accept & Begin” button is “active” (it “clicks” when I click on it”), nothing happens. I also cannot choose any of the 3 backstory options on that last page. I’ve tried several times from scratch. […]
As a side note, there doesn’t seem to be any way to return to the main menu from the New Game.

This issue is caused by the Razer SDK. If you’ve encountered this problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling Synapse. StarCrawlers’ devs have already contacted Razer about this issue and a hotfix should soon be available.
