Fix 2 – Update your graphics driver
In most cases, gaming problems come down to the driver issues. If you’re using a faulty or outdated graphics driver, the gameplay of Godfall can feel like a glitchy ride. So, to fix Godfall crashing, you should update the graphics driver to the latest version.
Graphics card manufacturers regularly release new drivers to fix bugs with new games. You could get them from their official websites: AMD or NVIDIA, and install them manually. But if you don’t have the time, patience or skills to update the driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.
Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to be troubled by the wrong driver you would be downloading, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.
You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 steps (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):
- Download and install Driver Easy.
- Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
- Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All). You can also click Update to do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.
If you need assistance, please contact Driver Easy’s support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Does the game run smoother after all your device drivers are updated? If the crashing issue is still there, check out the next fix, below.
Fix 3 – Repair corrupted game files
Missing or damaged game files can also stop Godfall from operating normally. To verify the integrity of your game files, simply follow the steps below:
- Open the Epic Games Launcher.
- Select Library on the left pane.
- Navigate to Godfall and click the icon with three dots.
- Click Verify.
It will take a few minutes to verify the integrity of your game files. After the process completes, relaunch Godfall to test the issue. If it persists, please move on to Fix 4.
Fix 4 – Disable the fullscreen mode
According to many Godfall players, they get constant crashes when the game runs on the fullscreen mode. If so, switching to the windowed mode may likely resolve your issue.
- Launch the Epic Game Launcher.
- Select Settings.
- Scroll down to the Manage Games section and click Godfall. Then, tick the box for Additional Command Line Arguments and type -windowed in the text field.
Relaunch Godfall to see if it keeps crashing. If yes, don’t frustrate, as we’ve got two more fixes for you below.
Fix 5 – Close unnecessary applications
While you may not be aware, applications running in the background can eat up much of the system resources and worse, interfere with your games and cause endless crashes. To enjoy Godfall better, you should just suspend other resource-hogging applications before gaming.
- Right-click ant empty space on the taskbar and click Task Manager.
- Right-click the application that consumes most of your CPU, Memory and Network and click End Task.
If this method doesn’t give you any luck, continue to the next one.
Fix 6 – Turn off overlays
- Run Discord.
- Click the cogwheel icon at the bottom of the left pane.
- Select Overlay on the left pane and toggle off Enable in-game overlay.
On Geforce Experience
- Run GeForce Experience.
- Click the cogwheel icon at the upper right corner.
- Toggle off In-game overlay.
After applying the steps above, you’re supposed to run the game properly.
Hopefully one of the fixes above has cured your Godfall crashing on PC issue. If you have any questions, suggestions or alternate solutions, please feel free to leave a comment.
