After getting plagued with various severities of this glitch a thousand times over, I found the exact file that, at least for me, seems to be causing the problem. I individually deleted practically every damn file in my SEGA folder and would open the game after each file to see if it would still crash, and deleting item_name_cache_na immediately solved the crashing. Tested multiple times, and every time, this was the cause. Absolutely no impact deleting any other file. So you shouldn't have to delete the whole folder, just item_name_cache_na.
