Guns of Icarus Online crashes instantly upon launch

When you run Guns of Icarus, hear a bit of music, and it instantly crashes thereafter, run through the following troubleshooting steps:

  1. Update your nVidia / ATI graphics drivers. Check our Technical References page for proper and official download links.
  2. Turn off SLI / Crossfire then start the game. See if it stabilizes Guns of Icarus Online performance.
  3. Turn off your anti-virus software before launching the Guns of Icarus Online, but make sure you turn it back on after playing. Make sure Windows Defender is also disabled.
  4. Try using only one GPU first (turn the other one off via your nVidia / ATI graphics control panel)
  5. Try running the game in Windowed Mode (frequently works for low-end PCs)
  6. Disable anti-aliasing and filtering, restart Guns of Icarus Online
  7. Disable V-sync, restart Guns of Icarus Online
  8. Disable background apps, and turn off your anti-virus software
  9. In Windows 7 right-click the Guns of Icarus Online exe file, go to the ‘Compatibility Mode’ tab and check ‘Disable Desktop Composition’

Failed to initialized SteamAPI Crash

If you get this error, in addition to the fixes posted above, you can simply restart Steam if you haven’t rebooted it for a while. Usually this error arises from stagnated Steam files that accumulate if you usually keep it on for extended periods of time.

Guns of Icarus Online randomly crashes and need to restart PC

If about half an hour into the game you get a weird crash that requires you to reboot your PC to fix it, the prime suspect is usually an overheating GPU. Make sure you have sufficient cooling for your graphics card.

Full Screen Issues and Problems

From the developer:

If anyone is having an issue with fullscreen (we’ve gotten 2 reports), it is looking like there is some issue with your graphics card supporting full screen. We’ll work on a better way to detect this issue for you in the future so you don’t get stuck in a blank screen, but in the meantime, this is how you can reset your screen res:

On Windows:

  1. Open regedit
  2. Navigate to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMuse Games
  3. Delete the subkey GunsOfIcarusOnline

On Mac, delete the file:

  • /Library/Preferences/unity.Muse Games.GunsOfIcarusOnline.plist

Guns of Icarus Online corrupted files

If you are getting corrupted file errors when trying to launch Guns of Icarus, verify the integrity of your Steam game cache.

Guns of Icarus Online stuck at loading screen, Won’t connect

Initial diagnosis according to the developers is that this is a server-side issue. For example, during Beta there was a time they disabled European servers due to loading errors which allowed users to login properly. If you’re encountering this, you should email Guns of Icarus support so they can resolve this quickly as they did a few times before.

If you’re encountering crash problems during the boss fight versus Eric, here are some working but sort of painful workarounds:

  1. Deal some damage then run away and come back until you slowly kill them all
  2. If you’re a spellcaster, just use magic missile level 2
  3. Update: If you’re using Skalds, the developers just released a quick fix for this. Make sure your game is updated.

King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North does not load

If you get this error, usually with a fault module name of install.exe Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2008, try installing the Visual Studio 2008 redistributable directly from Microsoft. If you’re on Windows 7, try reinstalling it through Add/Remove Programs. Let us know if this works for you.

If you’re getting this error on King’s Bounty: WotN, try this similar fix we used on Deadlight:

  1. On Windows 7, click the Start button
  2. Click Control Panel
  3. Click Region and Language
  4. Administrative Tab
  5. Click Change System Locale
  6. Change to English (United States)

King’s of Bounty: Warriors of the North – Steam Cloud sync issues

This causes you to lose your achievements. This bug is currently being fixed, but the workaround is to go to the save game window and click the sync button for each and every time you want to save to the cloud. Let us know in the comments if you find a more effective solution.

Can I run King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North?

Here are the minimum requirements to run KBWotN:

  • OS:Windows XP/Vista/7

  • Memory:1 GB RAM
  • Graphics:nVidia GeForce 6600 with 128 Mb VRAM or similar AMD card
  • DirectX®:9.0c
  • Hard Drive:8 GB HD space
  • Sound:DirectX 9.0c compliant

Graphics problems on Mac

Thanks to nedclark for his inputs in the Steam forums:

Got it to work on my retina macbook pro by restarting machine and launching game before loading any other apps. Loading just about anything else results in the graphics issue (making the game unplayable). Embarrassing that steam and 1C haven’t fixed this yet (present in the other Kings Bounty games). Would seem that doing a simple graphics memory dump on launching the game might fix the prob. Going to lose potential customers with this continued lack of basic app testing. At least there’s now GoG for more mac ports.

Lucius Crash on intro, Won’t start, Cannot see menu, Cannot Save, Exe no longer works

[like_to_read]

Lucius crashes after intro

If you get crashes after cutscenes with errors mentioning “cannot locate texture” or “cannot allocate bytes of memory”, believe it or not this may be caused by some corrupt save files. Go to C:Users(Account)DocumentsLuciussaves, and delete input.txt and config.txt. Try running Lucius now.

If still that doesn’t work, try deleting the screenshots inside the same folder. If this still fails, please let us know in the comments.

Lucius randomly crashes in-game

Usually this CTD comes with the error “Lucius has stopped working.” Try the fix posted above first.

Lucius won’t start

If you’re having problems getting Lucius to start on your Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC, go to your Steam folder > steamapps > common > Lucius and copy the exe file to the desktop and run it from there.

Lucius is not working on Windows 8 – “Can’t load Main Shader”

Yes, Lucius is compatible with Windows 8. Here’s how to make it run on the latest Windows system:

  1. Make sure Windows 8 is up to date.
  2. Make sure your Video/Sound drivers etc. is up to date.
  3. Update DirectX
  4. Run Steam as Administrator
  5. Set Lucius.exe file to run as Administrator in the steamapps folder.

“Lucius.exe no longer works, it will look for a solution to the problem”

If you get this error, you can solve it using the Windows 8 fix posted above.

Cannot see anything in the menu

Here’s a weird fix: try pressing print screen many times until the main menu appears.

If that does not resolve it, here are other proven fixes:

  • Run Lucius in windowed mode
  • Go to your nVidia or ATI control panel and set antialiasing for Lucius to “application controlled”

Cannot save games in Lucius

If you find yourself unable to save games in Lucius, disable Steam cloud and it should work.

Can I run Lucius?

It isn’t a very graphically-demanding game, but just in case, here are the minimum specs you need:

Lucius Minimum Requirements:

  • OS:Windows XP, VISTA, 7
  • Processor:Pentium 4 1,5GHz or Athlon XP equivalent

Deadlight Fixes for Crashes, LOTDGame.exe has stopped working, Error Code 51, No Sound, Xbox 360 Controller Issues

 

Deadlight is actually one of the solid post-apocalyptic titles out there. Great story, atmosphere, sound, and solid platformer gameplay at a good price all make this a game worth your time. Despite all praises however, you may occasionally run in to some very persistent crashes, sound problems, and controller issues. The Crash Wiki team has built a list of fixes you can try should you encounter these.

Deadlight Fixes for Crashes, LOTDGame.exe has stopped working, Error Code 51, No Sound, Xbox 360 Controller Issues

[like_to_read]

Deadlight Crash: LOTDGame.exe has stopped working

Here’s a quick fix thanks to our readers at the Steam Community forums:

  1. On Windows 7, click the Start button
  2. Click Control Panel
  3. Click Region and Language
  4. Administrative Tab
  5. Click Change System Locale
  6. Change to English (United States)
  7. Restart your PC and try running Deadlight

If that doesn’t work, try using the Windows Compatibility Mode feature:

In Windows 7 right-click the Deadlight exe file, go to the ‘Compatibility Mode’ tab and check ‘Disable Desktop Composition’

Let us know in the comments section if this works for you.

Error: Deadlight failed to start (error code 51)

Please try the first fix posted above. If that doesn’t cut it, try this:

  1. Click Start > All Programs > Airfoil and click the Airfoil application.
  2. Once application launches, click the Airfoil menu and choose Preferences.
  3. On the Extras tab, click Disable Instant Hijack
  4. Then, restart your and re-test the issue.

Alternatively, you can add Steam and any games you wish to play to the Exclude List, also found on the Extras tab in the Airfoil Preferences window. If the issue persists, it may be necessary to fully uninstall Airfoil.

Also if you’re using F-Secure: F-Secure uses a feature called DeepGuard which may interfere with Steam. If you are seeing the above error, disable DeepGuard and re-test the issue. If the issue continues, you may need to *temporarily* uninstall F-Secure to determine the cause of the problem.

No sound in Deadlight during cinematics

If you can’t hear anything during Deadlight cutscenes, try the following solutions:

For Windows 7 and Vista users:

First of all, update your sound card drivers. If doing that doesn’t clear up the problem, make sure you have volume set to max for Deadlight in the volume mixer (click on the little speaker icon in the bottom-right of your screen in the system tray). If you’re in-game, just alt+tab out of the game and check if Deadlight is set to max in the volume mixer.

Another tip you could try is to go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Communications Tab then select the “Do Nothing” radio button to permanently fix this issue.

For Windows XP users:

Reduce hardware acceleration, or set your speakers to Stereo.

Alternative Fix:

Another solution that worked for some of our readers was similar to the Skyrim sound fix last year, try it:

  1. In Windows 7, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound
  2. You will see your default sound device. Click it, then click properties.
  3. Go to the Advanced Tab, make sure the default format is set to 44.1Khz 16-bit.
  4. Hit Apply/OK, then run Deadlight.

Xbox 360 controller not working in Deadlight

If your 360 controller is unresponsive and you cannot use it when playing Deadlight, try the following:

  1. Unplug other all other USB devices that are irrelevant to Deadlight (e.g., web cam, USB hubs, storage devices, other controllers)
  2. Manually download and install any Deadlight game patch from the official source instead rather than automatically updating via Steam or any similar game client.
  3. If you haven’t yet, go to your Windows Control Panel and ensure that the Xbox 360 Controller is enabled. Then, in-game, go to Options > Controls > Customize Controls (or similar menu path) and ensure that the proper controller is selected.

Fix Windows 8 Crash Errors, Freezing, Music App Crash, Black Screen, Skype Crash, IE10 Crash

With the worldwide release of Windows 8, millions of users will now be using Microsoft’s biggest OS refresh since ’95. New Operating Systems aren’t necessarily precision science as we all know it, so our Crash Wiki team has compiled a list of the most popular Windows 8 crashes from both the release preview and the final release, including all possible solutions we found online. We do hope this helps a lot of users as they get their hands on Windows 8, and we’d like to get your feedback in the comments section below if there are any other problems or solutions we could include here.

Fix Windows 8 Crash Errors, Freezing, Music App Crash, Black Screen, Skype Crash, IE10 Crash

How to disable Metro UI on Windows 8

In Windows 8 (from the Consumer Preview up to the final release), there is no known way built-in to disable the new “Modern” UI.

If you feel comfortable using third-party programs and hacks to get rid of (or minimize the use of) Modern UI, you can try:

  • Start8, which will give you a start menu (you can choose between a Windows 7-style start menu or a Modern start menu) and allow you to bypass the Modern UI Start Screen altogether, but it won’t altogether disable Modern UI, since you’ll still be able to access the charms bar and the Modern UI task switcher.
  • You can use this Classic Shell skin to get a close-enough replica of the Windows 7 Start Menu. This will not disable any part of Modern UI, nor will it boot you directly into the Desktop, but it will give you a Windows 7-style start button and menu.
  • If you would like to do away completely with Modern UI, you can use this trick, which allows you to use the Windows 7 shell (explorer.exe) in place of the Windows 8 shell. This option will send you right back to the Windows 7 experience, but remember to read the “please read” section of that post to know just what you’re getting yourself into.

How to Disable Windows 8 Lock Screen

You can use the Group Policy editor to disable the new lock screen. This won’t let you use the Windows 7 or XP login screens, but it will allow you to skip the lock (“drag up to unlock”) screen, and be sent straight to the screen where you enter your password.

Windows 8 is Slow, Freezing, Lagging

If there’s one thing Microsoft has done well in their recent Windows releases, it’s that they’ve improved the “self-healing” process of the system. If you’re experiencing a very slow Windows 8 user interface, we recommend trying the following solutions:

Solution #1: Use Systems Maintenance and Internet Connection Troubleshooter

  1. Press the “Windows + W” keys together.
  2. Now, type “troubleshooting” (without quotes”.
  3. Select “troubleshooting” and then select “view all” on the left hand pane.
  4. Now, run the System Maintenance and the Internet connections troubleshooter one by one.

Solution #2: Clean Boot state

A Clean Boot state helps us identify conflicting applications (third party programs) interfering with functioning of the application.

Step A:

  1. Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.
  2. In the ‘Run’ window type ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.
  3. Click the ‘Boot’ tab and uncheck the ‘Safe Boot’ option.
  4. On the ‘General’ tab, click to select the option ‘Selective startup’, and then uncheck the box next to “Load startup items”.
  5. On the ‘Services’ tab, check the box next to ‘Hide all Microsoft service’, and then select ‘Disable all’.
  6. On the ‘Startup’ tab, click ‘Open Task Manager’. In the Task Manager window under the “startup tab”, right click on each startup item that are enabled and select ‘Disable’.
  7. Click ‘OK’, and then click Restart.

Step B: Enable half of the services

  1. Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.
  2. In the ‘Run’ window type ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.
  3. Click the Services tab, and then check the box next to ‘Hide all Microsoft services’.
  4. Select half of the check boxes in the “Services” list.
  5. Click OK, and then click Restart.

Step C: Determine whether the problem returns

  • If the problem still occurs, repeat Step A and Step B. In Step B, uncheck half of the check boxes selected earlier.
  • If the problem does not occur, repeat Step B and Step B. In Step B, check the remaining boxes. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.
  • If only one service is selected in the Service list, and the issue persists then, that service would be causing the issue. Go to Step F. Proceed to Step D if, the issue persists.

Step D: Enable half of the Startup items

If none of the services are causing the problem, then it is most likely that the startup items are causing the issue.

Step E: Determine whether the problem returns

The method of identifying a faulty startup item is similar to identifying a faulty service. The only difference being that the, “Hide all Microsoft Services” box should not be checked.

Step F: Resolve the problem

Once the culprit has been identified then, you may contact the manufacturer of the service or try to resolve the issue. If none of the two methods work then, you may uncheck the box next to the faulty service or the startup item.

Step G: After you have finished with the troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.

  1. Select the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.
  2. In the ‘Run’ windows type ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.
  3. On the ‘General’ tab, click the ‘Normal Startup’ option, and then click ‘OK’.
  4. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click ‘Restart’.

Solution #3: Download and run a secure, online virus scan.

Download the Microsoft Security Scanner here.

Note: the antivirus will try to repair bad sectors on the hard drive damaged by virus. Any data present on these sectors might be lost in the process.

Solution #4: Reset the Internet Explorer settings.

  1. Open Internet Explorer and select “Tools”.
  2. Click on “Internet Options” and then select “Advanced”.
  3. Now, select “reset”.
  4. Click on “Apply and “Ok”.

Note: The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might reset security settings or privacy settings that you added to the list of Trusted Sites. The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might also reset parental control settings. We recommend that you note these sites before you use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature.

Windows 8 Error: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

This is usual a graphics driver issue, particularly ATI HD cards. Use this driver update tool.

Windows 8 Music App keeps Crashing

Apparently the Music App crash is a common event across all Windows 8 installations. To solve it, try the following solutions:

Solution #1: Try creating and testing on a new user account as your current account may be corrupt.

  1. Log into to an account with administrator privileges.
  2. Open the “Start screen” and type “Add user” (without the quotes) and select “Settings”.
  3. Select, “Give other users access to this computer”.
  4. Scroll down and select “Add a user”.
  5. Now, you will be prompted to enter an email address. If you wish to create a Microsoft account then, enter the email address and select “Next”.
  6. If not, then you would have to register and account. A confirmation email will sent to your mail. Click on that and finish the registration process.
  7. If you do not wish to use a Microsoft Account, then you need to select “Sign in without a Microsoft Account”.
  8. Now, select Local Account and enter the desired username and password.

Solution #2: Perform an SFC scan to check for integrity violations only if creating a new user account does not help.

  1. Press the “Windows + d” key simultaneously and then type “cmd” (without the quotes).
  2. Now, right click on the “cmd” icon and select “Run as administrator”.
  3. Type the command and hit enter- sfc /scannow
  4. Wait for the process to complete. Restart the computer and check.

For Mac users: Windows 8 Crashing on Bootcamp

Popular games crashing on Windows 8

This is, after all, primarily a gaming resource, so we’d like to build a list of the most popular games that are not compatible with Windows 8. We’d appreciate if you could post these troublesome games in the comments section. Once we have a significant number, we’ll integrate them into this post for others’ reference.

Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) Crash Problems

Here are some troubleshooting steps to try:

  1. Look in add/remove programs to see if there are any toolbars you might have added recently and remove them.
  2. Try disabling any anti-virus programs as most of them are currently not compatible with Windows 8.
  3. Ensure that Windows Error Reporting is enabled, and Microsoft will receive the crash dump. Microsoft are actively watching the error-reporting logs and many Windows Update patches are issued on the basis of crash dumps received from WER.

How to browse the Windows App Store outside of Windows 8

It seems that Microsoft is planning to use the URL apps.microsoft.com to allow this but right now it returns an Access Denied error. However, you can still directly link to apps via a web link.

Windows 8 Error: “CPU isn’t compatible with Windows 8” and Error 0x0000005D

This sometimes also causes the HAL_INITIALIZATION_FAILED crash.

Your PC processor (CPU) must support the following features: Physical Address Extension (PAE), NX, and SSE2. Most CPUs have support for these features, so if you receive this error, it is likely because the NX feature is not enabled on your system.

Look through your manufacturer manual and see how you can enable these features through the BIOS. It’s a bit complex for some, so you may want to ask questions in our comments forum below.

Windows 8 Randomly Freezing on Laptops

Windows 8 freezing on your Asus, HP, Samsung (or any other) laptop? According to Microsoft: “This problem may occur because of an issue in the interaction between the state-machine driving dynamic tick transitions and the state-machine-driving clock rate changes.”

To fix this, install the Intel INF Update Utility downloadable here.

Error 0x8007007B when activating Windows 8

You must use your own key. To set your key just run “slui 3” from command promt or by using “Win+R”. Let us know your feedback in the comments below.

No sound in Windows 8

Currently a bug that is being addressed by Microsoft. The workaround is to put your Windows 8 to sleep and then wake it up. You should then have sound working on Windows 8.

How to shut down Windows 8

Sounds silly, but a lot of our readers were asking this.

Follow these steps to shutdown the computer in Windows 8.

  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Settings. (If you’re using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Settings.)
  2. Tap or click Power, and then tap or click Shut down.

Shut down and Restart (or Update and shut down and Update and restart) appear by default in the Power menu. You can also add other options like Sleep and Hibernate to this menu.

You should close any desktop apps you have open before shutting down your PC. This will prompt you to save any work that you might have open on the desktop.

We’d like to hear your feedback

That’s all our team could compile right now, but if you would like to contribute or share your Windows 8 problems, do post in the comments section below. We need all the feedback we could get to make this article a great resource for anyone and everyone.

Random game crashes and black screens when playing Medal of Honor Warfighter

If you’re experiencing random crashes such as when customizing weapons, changing class, changing server maps, accessing the setup menu, changing spawn method (yes, we do realize it’s a heavily bugged game), run through this quick troubleshooting procedure which worked for a good number of our readers:

  1. Try running the game directly from Origin without using battlelog
  2. Update your PunkBuster
  3. Change all graphics settings to LOW

This error usually appears as soon as you try to launch Warfighter.

Warfighter Promo Code does not work

You should check in the first place if you qualify for this promotion. Login and check your eligibility at http://offer.medalofhonor.com.

If still this does not work, it usually is a server uptime issue according to EA support. Call or e-mail EA support directly so they can check for the root cause.

Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster

Try checking if your router is passing through PunkBuster ports properly. If this is too much a hassle, a quick fix to this is to set configure your router to place your PC IP address in a DMZ. Just make sure you turn off DMZ after playing, as this may pose security risks to your PC.

How to Fix Skyrim Crashes and Freezing after 1.7 Patch

 

While the Skyrim forums are running amok due to the 1.7 Patch pretty much screwing up stable gameplay, the Crash Wiki team has come up with a shortlist of the best solutions to address Skyrim crashes, errors, black screens and freezes after the 1.7 Patch.

How to Fix Skyrim Crashes and Freezing after 1.7 Patch

Shortlisted fixes for Skyrim Crashes

Here are the top suggestions by the user community to try and resolve Skyrim crash problems after Patch 1.7:

  • Created a new save game with your previous character and load it.
  • Reset your sound profile to 24 bit, 96000 Hz (Studio Quality)
  • If you have too many mods installed, it is possible that most of them are incompatible with the new patch and may cause random crashes. Do a clean install and run the game. If it works, then re-install your mods one at a time.

Solving freezes in-game or when autosaving

This freeze usually happens when you’re going through doors and entrances or when traveling. Erase your Skyrim .ini files and let Skyrim redetect your video card. Load the game and just use the default preset graphics settings. The .ini files are found at My DocumentsMy GamesSkyrim.

Skyrim White Screen crash

This is a type of crash unique to the 1.7 Patch, as users reported this happening to them only after the recent update. Here are top solutions to try out:

  • Update your nVidia and ATI drivers to the latest versions. nVidia users can do a quick scan to check for updates here, while ATI users can use a similar service thru an agent application here.
  • Make sure your DirectX is updated. You can get the latest version here.
  • Turn all your graphics settings to low and switch off anti-aliasing, v-sync and other filters.
  • SLI and Crossfire may also be interfering with the latest patch. Try switching them off.
  • Go to your Skyrim exe file, right-click it and go to properties, go the ‘Compatibility Mode’ tab and check ‘Disable Desktop Composition’. Run Skyrim again.

In case the above tips do not work for you, we highly recommend reading through this comprehensive solution list: Skyrim solution article by CrashFixes.com

Controls not working, can’t kill guard in tutorial

Simple solution: unplug all other irrelevant USB devices. This could be joysticks, web cams, etc.

Also, you need to hold down the left mouse button and move the mouse in the direction indicated by the game (while still holding it down).

Mark of the Ninja crashes when you press “Start Game” or “Play”

While the devs have posted that they’re brewing a patch to fix the random crash issues (whew), you can try running through these steps to reduce crash instances:

  1. Update your nVidia / ATI graphics drivers.
  2. Turn off SLI / Crossfire then start the game. See if it stabilizes Mark of the Ninja performance.
  3. Turn off your anti-virus software before launching the Mark of the Ninja, but make sure you turn it back on after playing. Make sure Windows Defender is also disabled.
  4. Try using only one GPU first (turn the other one off via your nVidia / ATI graphics control panel)
  5. Try running the game in Windowed Mode (frequently works for low-end PCs)
  6. Disable anti-aliasing and filtering, then restart Mark of the Ninja
  7. Disable V-sync, then restart Mark of the Ninja
  8. Disable background apps, and turn off your anti-virus software
  9. In Windows 7 right-click the Mark of the Ninja exe file, go to the ‘Compatibility Mode’ tab and check ‘Disable Desktop Composition’

If you keep getting crashes, please notify us through the comments section and we’ll see what we can do to help.

Low FPS

Start by turning all graphics options to low and try running the game. Turning off all background applications will also help.

GFWL Problems

Kidding. No GFWL for Mark of the Ninja, so that’s basically good news for everyone! 🙂

Ravaged is one of the latest online shooters with a twist: it focus on vehicular combat. While it does showcase a pretty neat concept with solid game play, we’ve received feedback that users are getting various problems running it on the PC.

If you found this guide helpful, we’d appreciate your thanks in the comments section!

Fix Ravaged PC Exe Errors, No servers, Low FPS, Bad hash updates, Freezes, and Crashes

Ravaged PC Error: “You have been kicked by FairFight”

FairFight is Ravaged’s anti-cheat provider. Check if you were doing anything that FairFight could have found suspicious. It would be good to find out if there is a way to reproduce a false positive ban and report it in order to lift the ban on your account. Let us know in the comments if you find other ways to work around this issue.

RavagedGame.exe error

Try deleting your “Documentsmy gamesRavagedRavagedGameConfig” folder. This tends to get UE3 games out of a bad state.

No Servers for Ravaged

If you are seeing 0 servers you are likely to be behind on your patches (quite a lot are up). Make sure you do have automatic patching enabled on steam (check the game properties), and DO NOT set your RavagedEngine.ini to read only.

Ravaged PC Low FPS, stuck at 10 FPS on Alienware or high-end systems

Set your graphics settings to low/very low and make sure you have recent GPU drivers. The Crash Wiki team is also checking if an ini variable will allow us to disable the AlienFX on Alienware systems to fix this. We’ll update as soon as we get more info. Meanwhile, let us know your feedback in the comments section.

Ravaged PC freezing in menu, bad hash update error

If you are seeing that error you need to run “Verify integrity of game cache”. According to the dev team, hash checks are needed to ensure the game does not enter a corrupt state without user notification.

  1. Load Steam
  2. From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
  3. Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game cache… button.
  4. Steam will verify the game’s files – this process may take several minutes.
  5. Once the process is completed, the Check Window will automatically exit.

How to change Ravaged PC resolution to see the menu

Go to “C:UsersusernameDocumentsmy games” and open the folder Ravaged folder. Do a search for “engine.ini”. Open that up with notepad/wordpad and change the ResX and ResY setting back to 1024 and 768 or your desired resolution.

Ravaged crashes on the PC

Make sure you meet the minimum system requirements to play Ravaged:

OS: Windows XP(SP3), Windows Vista(SP2), or Windows 7
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD Athlon X2, or equivalent, running at 1.6 GHz or greater
Memory: 1.5GB
Hard Disk Space: 3 GB
Video Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible, 256 MB of VRAM; NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS, ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro 256 MB, or greater
DirectX®: 9.0c
Sound: DirectX 9.0c compatible, 16-bit

If you pass these requirements and still get random crashes, make sure your DirectX and GPU drivers are using the latest versions. Try disabling anti-aliasing and other filters, as well as disable v-sync.

That’s all the fixes we could compile for Ravaged on the PC, for now. We’ll try to update this solution guide as soon as our research team gets more information. If you’re encountering other issues, let us know in the comments section so we could try to help.
