Crashes/FPS Drops - Darkest Dungeon 1 Steam

As mentioned by MatuTheMan in "Performance issue in Darkest Dungeon since Adrenaline 22.7.X", the following issues have been found, caused by AMD's drivers for 5 months now:

  • Frequent Crashes, most often from interactions.
  • FPS drops, going as low as a constant 5 FPS. 
  • Missing Textures, replaced with white boxes


  • OS: Windows 11
    • Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621
  • System Model: ROG Strix G513QY (Modified)
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX 
  • GPU: AMD Radeon RX 6800M
    • Driver: 23.2.2
  • SSD: Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 500GB
  • RAM: 32GB DDR4 3200 MHz, CL22

Note: Under AMD's Gaming settings, I have attempted the default settings, and I have set it to resort to the application's settings strictly to no luck.

Update: I made a new game, tried that and it didn't work. However, after some time and an update, I was able to get more than 7 fps, but 20 isn't much better.When returning from a dungeon.When returning from a dungeon. I then had two errors, one in video form and the other in the picture

Noteworthy note: it would seem the most common way to break the game is opening inventory with a character sheet pulled up while in the embark menu. Happens also in town at a lower frequency.

Same thing happens to me, although I remain with constant 30fps while in the Estate, and while campaigning, it jumps around 20-50. I have an RX 6600 XT. It's very sad this is still happening after many updates from the driver. Hope AMD fixes it!

I'm having the same issue using RX 580, constant 15-20 FPS at all stages of the game and am randomly missing textures, especially in the farmstead region.
