Game crashes after studio credits screen


I own an eGPU enclosure and am running an R9 Fury Nitro alongside an i7-6820HQ. Launching this game is a nightmare, as the same error pops up whenever I launch the game and get past the studio credit screens.

LowLevelFatalError [File:Unkown] [Line:200]
Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost.
(Error: 0x887A0006- ‘HUNG’)

I also run a desktop and have no issues there launching the game. The game also runs well on the laptop without the eGPU being connected. This leads me to believe that there isn’t full support for eGPUs, but I digress. I have been able to launch this game a grand total of one time and had zero issues playing the game.

If anyone else runs an eGPU and plays this game, please let me know if you found a workaround or even a solution. Thank you!
