Created attachment 102280 [details]

Wish I could describe it better but there is no better words. The game will lock up the card and the monitor output will go blank, although once I got lucky and it crashed to the terminal spewing errors about radeon. Due to the fact that the system crashes the only. This crash usually happens during a gameplay sequence and has not happened in a menu as of yet. The crash also will usually recover the first time after loosing visual output for 10 seconds but then will cut out a second (or rarely a third) and not return to the game.

Due to it crashing randomly (no specific scene causing it) and always requiring about a hour of play, would it make sense to be a memory issue?

It did not occur to me that I would need Dmesg output, if its needed then remind me and I will reproduce another crash with the log file.

I also have a apitrace, but it totals 23GB and I do not know which bit would need trimming.

System Specs:

AMD PhenomII X6 T55
AMD RadeonHD 7950
Mesa 10.3.0-devel (git-370184e)

Does Mesa git still crash?

I've seen this crash as well and can't seem to reproduce it right now. Though it might be a bit too early to call it fixed just yet, because as Will wrote, there wasn't really a fixed time after which the game crashed. Sometimes I had been able to play several hours other times I barely was able to get more than 15 minutes. (Most of the time, though, the game started crashing about an hour in.)
It also didn't matter whether I had the INI-File modifications for better visuals active or not.

Anyway, within 1.5 hours, the game didn't crash with the stack detailed below.
