Good day to you all.

Honestly I am at my wits end. MV (bought it from Steam) keeps crashing and I don't know what to do anymore to fix it. I would be really grateful if this gets fixed, I have been sitting for hours trying to repair this.
Anyway..

When does it crash?
It always crashes when I am on the editor adding events. I have been observing MV in the task manager, and it usually crashes at the ~1150 RAM mark.
If I do not do anything in the program and it just runs, it doesn't crash.
It usually crashes in the editor.
Once it reached the 1200 MB, I tried to save and it crashed again, leaving me with corrupted files : ( .

What did I try?
I installed it on the D: and then on the C: Drive.
All plugins are off.
Updated the NW.js -> after that it began showing runtime error messages. These didn't appear before.
Only letters in the Project Name (no spaces and so on..)
Created new Projects, it still happens.
Reinstall
Tried finding a program which crashes MV because of a conflict. I only use Microsoft Defender, turned it off for MV, still crashes
Cloud Syncing is off.
Downloaded the opengl32.dll, program won't even start, just white screen. I need to say that earlier this year I had the white screen problem, where it would not even start. opengl fixed this, but now it let's the white screen appear, so I removed it.

I have looked into the Event viewer and it says the causes may have been:
Qt5Qml.dll
atioglxx.dll
And since I updated the NW.js "KERNELBASE.dll" also appeared.

I will be thankful for any help

if you have Window7 64bit, you could try 4GB patch - NTCore as put
the exe of RPG MV in it to gain more space.

I dont know the thread here which talked about that and seems to
work without crashing.

However, if you use Win10 or Win11, that link wont work for you.

but we need a bit more info on your window system to help you further
and the specs for it.

Hello and thank you for the reply.

I use Windows 10.
My PC specs are:
Processor AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core Processor
3.59 GHz
Installed RAM 16,0 GB
Systemtype: 64-Bit-Operating System, x64-based Processor

I should add that I noticed that the Memory keeps increasing if I want to add new Events.
Even a right-click (on an empty field on the map) on the mouse is enough to raise the memory.

Updated my graphic cards drivers, and now it feels like the memory - increase became even faster.

I also have checked if other programs use the QT engine, the AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition seems to have it? Turned it off, still wouldn't change anything.

the opengl-download was for a very specific case of your display driver not having the newest ogl. All non-microsoft display drivers have had the correct ogl included for years however, so downloading an older opengl (because it has been updated since then) will cause more problems and never fix anything.
if you had anything like the whitescreen today, you should only download and manually install the non-MS display driver from your graphic card manufacturer. And I strongly suggest doing that now as well to fix any problems the wrong opengl might have caused.

Tried finding a program which crashes MV because of a conflict. I only use Microsoft Defender, turned it off for MV, still crashes
even by default Windows has multiple programs that can shutdown your programs, but triggering a malware alarm usually looks a bit different from your descriptions.

have you checked if any of your other programs uses the Qt engine? It might be a version conflict there.

I've seen crashing issues with the KERNELBASE.dll error before that were solved by running this OS system file repair scan. Maybe give it a try?

Tried the OS- Repair just now, and there were indeed some broken files. But sadly it didn't fix the MV- problem : (

I also posted another answer 2 hours ago, but it seems like its not being posted into this thread, so I will just copy it here again:

One way you may be able to tell if it's a program incompatibility is by booting your pc up in safe mode and only running RPG Maker. If it runs fine then it may indicate that it's a program on your pc that's interfering. The latest most likely culprit seems to be Adobe creative cloud applications. I don't know if you use any of those, but they have been causing issues for some people lately.

I don't have any of the Adobe Applications.
I tried running it in safe mode, but it doesn't even start there. I see the Splash Screen for MV, and then it disappears : (

Do you see it on the task bar after it disappears? If so, when you hover over it, what does it look like?

Nope, it never even appears on the task bar, only one tiny second of the splash screen.

Please run the event viewer one more time and post any RPG Maker related errors you find here.

Also, Please look in your installation folder and navigate to "nwjs-win". Look for a file called "debug.log". If you find it, add it to your reply.

In the nwjs.-win folder I could not find anything, but in the normal folder the debug.log said:
[0814/092922:WARNING:resource_bundle.cc(286)] locale_file_path.empty()
Are resources missing? But which? I reinstalled it, I also verified the integrity of the files on steam, nothing seems to be missing.
On the D: Harddrive(where MV is uninstalled) there is another in the nwjs-win-test folder where its written:
[0807/145121.088:ERROR:settings.cc(263)] Settings version is not 1

I let it crash again, and the event viewer says the path of the faulty module is Qt5Qml.dll. It changes between the three I mentioned in the first post.

So I googled the locale_file_path.empty() - error and found out that the Nahimic - Service is causing the (main) problem.
I disabled it, and the memory keeps increasing, just at a much slower rate. It will still crash at 1200 MB, but at this point its acceptable. Before it would crash after 2 minutes, now it would after 10 if I would only spam to create events.
This time the event viewer said its the fault of Qt5WebEngineCore.dll .

I've seen others get the "WARNING:resource_bundle.cc(286)] locale_file_path.empty()" error before and some have solved it using this guidance.

Repairing the WMI Repository didn't change much since I disabled the Nahimic Service.
It's alright now, tho. It still crashes at 1200 MB, but now after I create many, many events. Before I couldn't really do anything. Thank you for your help!

welp, thanks to Luna MV, I was able to add the Balloon as a window... thus allowing me to edit the font color and outline... so now it looks like comic bubbles above characters. I have NO idea why I couldn't get this to work through more conventional means, but here we are.
