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

 

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. To help you, we’ve compiled a list of solutions for Ravaged on the PC, including fixes for exe errors, no servers, low FPS, bad hash updates, game freezes, and crashes. 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.

Dishonored Errors, Performance Tweaks, Launch Crash, Unable to Sync

 

Dishonored has probably one of the more flexible combat systems we’ve seen, and coupled with the immersive assassin role you’re given, we must say this a game of solid bad-assery. Regardless, you’re probably here because Dishonored isn’t cooperating on you and keeps crashing, gets errors, or suffers from poor performance when you try playing it. Well, that’s what our team is here for. Read on!

Dishonored Errors, Performance Tweaks, Launch Crash, Unable to Sync

Dishonored Performance Tweaks

Go to C:UsersNameDocumentsMyGamesDishonoredDishonoredGameConfig and open the file labeled DishonoredEngine.ini.

Look for the following lines and adjust accordingly. Thanks to Kakkoii from the Steam forums for posting great descriptions on these parameters:

  • bUseMaxQualityMode=True – This removes shadows on non-static objects, and glitches up the specular shading on water at certain angles. Leave it FALSE.
  • TextureForcedLODBias=4 – High number means lower detailed LOD’s will be loaded at a closer distance than normal. Leave it 0. (Making it a negative number might even make the highest detailed LOD’s last for longer distances, like -2)
  • bAllowHardwareShadowFiltering=True – Yup, good.
  • SkeletalLODDistanceFactorMultiplier=4 – Same as TextureForcedLod, put 0.
  • iType_AntiAlias=32 – This isn’t an antialiasing multiplier. This is a switch for AA modes. It even says it beside the line in the dev comment. (EPpAa_None=0, EPpAa_Mlaa=1,). And if EPpAa_Fxaa= is 2, then that is ignored anyways and FXAA is used.
  • bAllowRatsShadow=True – Yup, good.
  • MaxAnisotropy=16 – Yup, good. I’d put it up to 32 if you have the power.
  • ShadowFilterQualityBias=4 – Bad, same as texturelod. Put 0.
  • MaxShadowResolution=4096 – Good.
  • MaxWholeSceneDominantShadowResolution=4096 – Good
  • AmbientOcclusion=True – Doesn’t do anything, deferred rendering engine.
  • AllowD3D10=True – Not implemented, game doesn’t even have D3D10 DLL’s.

Dishonored error: “Steam was unable to sync your files”

Simple, just deactivate Steam cloud!

How to increase FOV beyond 85 in Dishonored for the PC

Credits go to jim2point0 in the Steam forums for this tweak! We really don’t understand why the developers would limit FOV to 85, when it is so much better beyond that. Here’s how you can do it.

Pay attention to the FOV XXX commands. Replace XXX with your desired FOV. You can include another binding to switch it back to 85 if you’d like. I’m using keys F10 and F12 because I know those are free. If you use those keys for something else like screenshotting, you may wish to change it.

In C:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonDishonoredDishonored GameConfigDefaultInput.ini

Find the following sections where you see several bindings like this:

Code:
 .m_PCBindings=(Name="F5",Command="GBA_QuickSave")
 .m_PCBindings=(Name="F9",Command="GBA_QuickLoad")

Add the following lines underneath those:

Code:
 .m_PCBindings=(Name="F10",Command="FOV 85",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)
 .m_PCBindings=(Name="F12",Command="FOV XXX",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)

Find:

Code:
 .BaseBindings=(Name="GBA_Zoom",Command="Dis_Zoom")

Replace with:

Code:
 .BaseBindings=(Name="ZoomIn",Command="Dis_Zoom | FOV 35 | setbind RightMouseButton ZoomOut",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,LeftTrigger=False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False, bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
 .BaseBindings=(Name="ZoomOut",Command="Dis_Zoom | FOV XXX | setbind RightMouseButton ZoomIn",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,LeftTrigger=False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,b IgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)

Find:

Code:
 .m_PCBindings=(Name="LeftAlt",Command="GBA_Zoom")

Replace with:

Code:
 .m_PCBindings=(Name="LeftAlt",Command="ZoomIn" ,Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,LeftTrigger= False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnore Shift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)

Zooming in is really just a matter of decreasing the FOV by a lot. I found the FOV used by the game when zooming (35) and added that command to the binding. If you want to zoom in more, just reduce that number.

Also, you can remove the “optics hud” (the spyglass effect) if you want to. To do that, remove “Dis_Zoom” from your ZoomIn and ZoomOut commands above.

Dishonored cannot save video settings, settings keep resetting

Try restarting Dishonored and see if the save bug goes away. Also try restarting Steam for that matter.

At any case, if both these simple methods do not work, you may want to directly input your video setting adjustments in the DishonoredEngine.ini file and make sure to set it to read-only. Check our first tip at the top of the page about this. If you have suggestions to fix this, please leave a comment!

Dishonored crashes after “Press any Key”

This is a pretty tricky problem as it may involve multiple factors. Here’s a good troubleshooting list to go through:

  1. Update your nVidia / ATI graphics drivers.
  2. Turn off SLI / Crossfire then start the game. See if it stabilizes Dishonored performance.
  3. Turn off your anti-virus software before launching the Dishonored, 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 Dishonored
  7. Disable V-sync, then restart Dishonored
  8. Disable background apps, and turn off your anti-virus software
  9. In Windows 7 right-click the Dishonored exe file, go to the ‘Compatibility Mode’ tab and check ‘Disable Desktop Composition’

Xbox 360 or other controller doesn’t work with Dishonored

There are two known possible solutions as of writing for this controller bug:

  1. Manually download and install any Dishonored game patch from the official source instead rather than automatically updating via Steam or any similar game client.
  2. 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.

Can I run Dishonored?

Last but not the least, the reason you may be having problems is because your rig isn’t up-to-spec. Here’s the minimum system requirements for Dishonored:

  • OS: Windows Vista / Windows 7
  • Processor: 3.0 GHz dual core or better
  • Memory: 4 GB system RAM
  • Hard Disk Space: 9 GB
  • Video Card: DirectX 9 compatible with 512 MB video RAM or better (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 / ATI Radeon HD 5850)
  • Sound: Windows compatible sound card

XCOM Fix for Errors, Cannot Zoom, No Voice, Corrupt Game Files, and More

 

XCOM is probably the hottest PC game to hit shelves this October, and we at Crash Wiki were so pumped to see how it plays out. Introducing a mix of tactics, base management, and action, XCOM is reinventing gameplay as we speak. But, we know you’re here because you can’t even run this awesome game, right? Find the solutions to your game problems in this exclusive fix list we’ve compiled for you!

XCOM Fix for Errors, Cannot Zoom, No Voice, Corrupt Game Files, and More

[like_to_read]

XCOM does not launch

According to users in the 2K forums, you may have an uninstalled patch preventing you from launching XCOM. Restart Steam and you should expect the patch fix to be downloaded allowing you to run XCOM succcessfully.

XCOM error: “Corrupt Game File”

Chill, and stop hammering that Play button.

If you’re using Steam, the first thing you should do is to verify the integrity of your Steam game cache. If the error persists, make sure your DirectX is updated or installed properly. For some users, a reinstallation of DirectX fixed the problem.

Cannot hear voices but music and effects play properly

Thanks to TheMystic from the 2K forums for this fix:

I was having the same issue, came to find out that my 5.1 Logitech kit’s control module wasn’t properly sending audio to anything but the left and right channels. 3D sound mode was activated on the module, and turning it off seems to have fixed the problem.

XCOM crashes randomly

Random crashes are usually caused by a mix of minor elements on your PC. We recommend going through the following checklist and adjusting accordingly based on your situation.

  1. Update your nVidia / ATI graphics drivers.
  2. Turn off SLI / Crossfire then start the game. See if it stabilizes XCOM performance.
  3. Turn off your anti-virus software before launching the XCOM, 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 XCOM
  7. Disable V-sync, then restart XCOM
  8. Disable background apps, and turn off your anti-virus software
  9. In Windows 7 right-click the XCOM exe file, go to the ‘Compatibility Mode’ tab and check ‘Disable Desktop Composition’

How to zoom in the base

Probably one of the most popular problems out there is that users seem to be having trouble zooming in the antfarm base. Try holding down the middle mouse button and see if that works. Other users found that adjusting their key bindings does the trick. If those solutions don’t work, let us know in the comments section below.

XCOM camera problems

Credits to carldivine in the 2K forums:

To those having problems with unexplained camera movements, please check for any other plugged controllers such as joysticks and gamepads as this will mess up your camera controls.

XCOM has Bad Textures, Texture Breaks, Texture Glitch on gaming laptop

If your XCOM installation is suffering from bad textures, disable anti-aliasing and filtering in your in-game video options. If your BIOS has the option, disable ‘Switchable Graphics’. This will remove your laptop PC’s ability to automatically switch between the onboard intel graphics card and the nVidia / ATI graphics chip, thus smoothening out gameplay.

Fix for Quad Core and Multi-Core PCs

If you’re using a Quad Core rig, try this fix to reduce possible crashing problems:

  1. Start XCOM
  2. Alt+Tab Out of the game
  3. Open Task Manager
  4. Right click on XXX.exe
  5. Set Affinity
  6. Select core 0 and 1 only. You need to run the game on two CPU’s basically, so to avoid the crash to desktop.

XCOM keeps freezing or stuttering in-game

Users in the 2K forums claim that this may be due to GPU overheating issues. Make sure you have sufficient cooling for your PC tower. Try opening the side panel of your PC tower and blowing an electric fan through it and run XCOM.
