Dear Forum Community, NVIDIA released a new GeForce Game Ready Driver (version number 531.18) recently, which will lead to an immediate crash upon starting Enscape when hardware ray-tracing is enabled. Our developers are aware of this and are already investigating the issue. At this time we suspect it is a bug in the newly released driver, so rolling back to driver version 528.49 should be a valid workaround in the meantime. If you still run into any unexpected issues after rolling back your NVIDIA drivers, please make sure to also submit a feedback report with logs files for further analysis.
You can now update to the latest game ready NVIDIA drivers once more as they've just resolved the problem with their recent update.
