Changed the Topic, since I seem to be crashing on any menu now that an NPC pops up, not just on the Skill Tree NPC. If I have them open for around 20 seconds, the game stops responding and I have to force quit the game (Music is still playing though). Is this happening to anyone else?
Update 1: I did a file check on the game and that might've fixed things for the time being. Menus haven't been causing any crashes so far. I'll still keep track of this for about a day, before I decide to deem this topic as resolved
Update 2: It started to crash again, this time it was at the food counter. I guess the file check only fixed things temporarily. I'll do a complete file check tomorrow, but I don't know if that will fix things
Update 3: Last scheduled maintenance didn't seem to help the issue either, although it did fix a good deal of a different issue I had outside of this one, which was the screen freezing for a few seconds whenever I or a party member leveled up (Is completely gone now) and when switching areas (Is still there, but not as severe). I've updated my GPU drivers and removed some Microsoft programs I never use (One of them was some XBox related program) and will test again tomorrow. If that won't work, I might have to consider another crazy approach and try updaing the BIOS
Update 4: Welp... I'm still having the game freeze randomly when talking to NPCs. And SEGA doesn't seem to have confirmed this issue yet, so screw it! I'm completely uninstalled it, and reinstalled it through the Tweaker. The problem still persists
