Fix 1: Repair Corrupt System Files
Missing or corrupt system files can crash your game. If you get error messages indicating that the game is crashing due to certain DLL files, repairing the files might be exactly what you need.
You can repair corrupt or missing DLL files with Fortect. It’s a Windows repair software that can automatically identify and fix issues with your Windows system.

Click START REPAIR to fix the issues automatically. This requires the Pro version which comes with a 60-day Money-Back Guarantee. You can refund at anytime if Fortect doesn’t fix your problem.

If the problem persists, read on and try the fix below.
Fix 2: Verify the Integrity of Game Files
You won’t be able to run the game correctly if any critical game files are damaged or missing. To see if this is the core issue, you can verify the integrity of game files from Steam:
1) Launch Steam and go to your Steam Library.
2) Right-click MIR4 and select Properties.
3) Under the LOCAL FILES tab, click Verify integrity of game files. (This process may take several minutes. Steam will fix corrupted files automatically if it detects any.)
4) Restart the game after the process is complete.
If the game still crashes, move on to the next fix below.
Fix 3: Update Your Graphics Driver
One of the most common causes of the game crashing problem is a missing or outdated graphics driver. Try updating your driver to see if it fixes the issue.
There are two ways you can do this:
Manual driver update – You can update your graphics driver manually by going to the manufacturer’s website for your graphics product, and searching for the most recent correct driver. Be sure to choose only driver that is compatible with your Windows version.
Automatic driver update – If you don’t have the time, patience, or computer skills to update your graphics driver manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct driver for your graphics product, and your Windows version, and it will download and install them correctly:
1) Download and install Driver Easy.
2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
3) Click the Update button next to the graphics driver to automatically download the correct version of that driver, then you can manually install it (you can do this with the FREE version).
Or 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 which comes with full support and a 30-day money-back guarantee. You’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All.)
If you need assistance, please contact Driver Easy’s support team at email@example.com.
4) Restart your PC and MIR4 after the update is complete.
If the issue persists, then go ahead with the fix below.
Fix 4: Run as an Administrator
If you’re running the game under normal user mode, it may not be able to access critical game files on your PC – which might cause crashes during gameplay.
Follow the instructions below to see how to run the game as an administrator:
1) If you’re running Steam now, right-click the Steam icon on the taskbar and select Exit.
2) Right-click the Steam icon and select Properties.
2) Click the Compatibility tab and check the box next to Run this program as an administrator.
3) Click Apply, then OK.
4) Relaunch the game from Steam to test your issue.
If the issue still occurs, go ahead with the next fix.
Fix 5: Disable Third-Party Programs
Third-party software running in your computer background sometimes can interfere with MIR4, causing issues like this. So you should turn off inessential software during gameplay, such as your antivirus, NVidia GeForce experience overlay, Discord, etc.
If this doesn’t do the trick for you, read on and try the next fix.
Fix 6: Reinstall the game
If none of the fixes above worked for you, it’s very likely that the game is not properly installed on your PC, and reinstalling it is the solution for you. Follow the instructions below:
1) Run Steam and go to LIBRARY.
2) Right-click MIR4 and select Manage > Uninstall.
3) Select Uninstall.
4) Relaunch Steam to download and reinstall the game.
If the game still won’t run correctly, try the next fix.
Fix 7: Check for Windows Updates
If the game won’t run at all, it’s unlikely that the out-of-date Windows version is the core problem, but you should still rule out the possibility. Follow the instructions below:
1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key. Then, type windows update and select Windows Update settings.
2) Click Check for updates, and then wait for Windows to download and install the updates automatically.
3) Restart your computer after the update is complete, then try running MIR4 again.
If the issue persists, try the fix, below.
Fix 8: Wait for Patch Notes
If none of the fixes worked for you, chances are the problem is at MIR4’s end. The developers of MIR4 release regular game patches to resolve bugs. It’s possible that a recent patch has stopped your game from launching correctly, and that a new patch is required to fix it.
Wait for the patch note to be released or you can also contact the MIR4 support team for assistance.
