I finish the training mission, and then the game crashes right around the time Tygan speaks the phrase “atrophy” in the cinematic where they’re wheeling the commander to the lab. It will occasionally display a message instructing me to upload a log dump, it will occasionally freeze, and occasionally it will simply display a blank screen, needing me to restart my computer. So I found the solution!
