Top 10 Fixes for The Legend of Korra Game Crashes, Errors, LoK exe Win32, Stuttering, Controllers, Poor FPS
1. Unresponsive every few seconds
The game quickly and repeatedly switch between responsive and unresponsive. This may happen when your PC is not fast enough to run the game. To solve it, simply lower some of the game’s settings. A great way to do that is to use smaller resolutions. If you can, play with a controller, as mouse and keyboard is hard to run.
2. “LoK.exe is not a valid Win32 binary”
This should only happen to windows XP users. For windows XP users, you might have bought the game because the developers say it’s supported. However, it is now sadly discontinued, which means this problem will probably not be solved anymore. You can however, update your operating system, and then it will be instantly solved.
3. PS3 controller issue
If you are using Motioninjoy to play the game with a PS3 controller, then this may occur, and the controller can’t be used in game. It’s just Motioninjoy’s issue with the game. All you have to do, is to change the program. There are a lot of other choices out there. A very good alternative to Motioninjoy is SCPServer.
4. Can’t post review
Not really a bug of the game, but some Steam users have not been able to post a review of the game on Steam. If this happens to you, please also check if you can leave reviews on other games. Most of the time, it’s Steam’s fault. If so, you just have to be patient and try again later.
5. Game crashing after starting
When you start the game and it crashes immediately, then you can follow this guide to successfully play the game. Go to the game’s location in file explorer, and right click “LoK.exe” and click “Properties”. Then navigate to the Compatibility tab and check “Run this program in compatibility mode for” and choose the mode that works for you.
6. Launching process starts but the game doesn’t run
So when you launch the game, a message appears and immediately disappears, then the launching process stops. And it keeps on happening if you click launch again. To solve this, simply go to the “korra” folder in your “My documents” folder, and delete “SystemData.dat”. Now launch the game again, and it should work properly.
7. Can’t change controller
Not really a bug at all, because there is no controller setting in the game! Sounds strange but it’s true. That also means you are stuck with the default controls. They may come with an update though, because many people have already asked for this.
8. Can’t find the game in the store
The game is not listed with a price in the store, but it’s also not free. There’s just no button to click in order to download or buy it. This should not happen unless you are living in countries where this game is unavailable, like Japan. If you log into Steam in Japan, then you might not find it on the store. This can’t be fixed. But you can ask a friend outside of Japan to gift the game to you.
9. Can’t get costume pr achievement
After completing all the missions in the game, and you still don’t get the costumes or achievements for it. You might have missed something else, but chances are you just have to beat the boss again. Yeah, it’s that simple.
10. FPS drops
Some people have experienced big frames per second drops while playing the game. First, you have to be sure your computer’s specs are enough to run this game. If it’s all good, but the problem remains, try to go open task manager and end other processes in background. Also, set the the game as high priority. After all this, there’s nothing more to do. If the fps is still dropping, you might just have to buy new and better processor and RAM.
The Legend of Korra is still a very new game, so there aren’t so much bugs. More problems might appear as the game evolve, but for now, we have pretty much covered all the bugs players have met with this troubleshooting guide. A lot of times, when you can’t launch the game, you just have to reboot it, and it will work. And other times, it’s might not be the game’s fault.
