The following is information regarding a voluntary beta test. Continue reading if you’re interested in volunteering.
The following is an invitation to an open beta focusing on stability fixes for Windows XP users. Windows XP users have been experiencing stability issues with PAYDAY 2 and we now have a potential fix for it in this beta. By testing this with us, we hope to add these changes to the live game as soon as possible.
If it crashes while you play, you can find your crash dumps (file extension .mdmp) in this folder: SteamsteamappscommonPAYDAY 2. Please share your feedback with us in the following Windows XP open beta thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/218620/discussions/10/496880503078771925/
