Game crashes and takes steam with it.
I’m gonna copy-paste text from my reddit thread: http://www.reddit.com/r/ChivalryGame/comments/2suoe5/chivalry_crashes_steam/
Chivalry basically crashes steam and freezes because steam isn’t running. Maybe it’s the other way around, I don’t know.
It can happen at level load or 10-20 minutes into the game, seems completely random. I tried verifying game cache and removing chivalry settings in “My Games” folder. Also tried running 64-bit and 32-bit version. I don’t have any workshop content installed.
8gb of ram
Nvidia GT 440
Windows 10 preview.
After that I tried every possible solution in sticky thread and it still crashes.

Since steam crashes too you may be able to find a record of it in “Event Viewer”. Start > search “Event Viewer” > Look in Window Application and Custom Administrative.
A GT440 though, I wonder if the card can’t handle it.
This card can easily handle it. I mean it already runs it, anything else isn’t important. I’m sure it’s no the reason for crashes.
I have the same exact issue but with different specs:
16GB of RAM
Nvidia GTX 970
Windows 10 preview 64-bit
Because we are both running win10 I would assume the issue is related to that. I didn’t have the issue until I recently installed the most recent build with Cortana and all the new updates. Could it be related to the fact that I’m running dx12?
Using the event viewer, I see this error that coincides with each crash, each with the same exception code. The error, I think, is actually steam related (but it only occurs in this game for, so far).

I found a solution!
Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Steam (or equivalent) and rename SteamService.exe to SteamServiceBAK.exe
After doing so, I get weird stutters and freezes on occasion but it seems that crashing is almost nonexistent! Hopefully a better solution is found, or the problem gets fixed though, since the service itself is rather useful for computers that need UAC.
