Fix 1: Install all Windows updates
Windows 10 introduces two types of updates, one tackles security issues and the other offers new features on a regular basis. If the last time you check for system updates feels like a long time ago, definitely do it now as it might fix your crashing issue.
Here’s how to install all system updates:
- On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and I at the same time. This will open the Windows Settings app. Select Update & Security.
- Click Check for updates and wait for the checking and installation to complete. This might take up to an hour.
- Once you’ve installed the available updates, restart your computer and check if Spellbreak crashes again.
If updating your system doesn’t give you any luck, please take a look at the next fix.
Fix 2: Verify your game files
The crash might indicate an integrity issue with your game files. If that’s the case, Spellbreak will crash constantly in some situations.
You can follow these steps to check your game files:
- Open your Epic Games Launcher. From the left menu, select Library.
- Click the settings icon (…) under Spellbreak.
- Select Verify. Then wait for the checking to complete.
Once you’ve done verifying your game files, launch Spellbreak and see if it crashes again.
If this fix doesn’t do the trick, you can check out the next one below.
Fix 3: Update your graphics driver
One of the most common causes of this error is corrupted or outdated graphics drivers. So you should definitely try updating your drivers before trying anything more complicated.
You can do this manually, if you like, by visiting your graphics card manufacturer’s download page, finding the right drivers, etc. But that takes time and computer skills. If you’re not comfortable playing with device drivers, we recommend using Driver Easy. It’s a tool that detects, downloads and installs any driver updates your computer needs.
- Download and install Driver Easy.
- Run Driver Easy, then click Scan Now. 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- Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.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. If you don’t want to pay for the Pro version, you can still download and install all the drivers you need with the free version; you just have to download them one at a time, and manually install them, the normal Windows way.)
After updating your graphics driver, restart your computer and check if the crash with Spellbreak has disappeared.
If the problem persists, please continue to the next method.
Fix 4: Disable in-game overlays
While in-game overlays make it convenient to share, communicate and purchase, it might also be the culprit of your crashing issue with Spellbreak. If you’re using in-game overlays such as GeForce Experience, Discord or Radeon™ Overlay, try disabling them and check if it fixes your problem.
If Spellbreak crashes when you’re not using any overlays, simply try the next solution below.
Fix 5: Stop overclocking
Some players reported that they managed to fix the crash with Spellbreak by closing the overclocking software. Indeed, overclocking offers a free-of-charge performance boost, but at the cost of system stability. So if you’re using BIOS settings or overclocking software such as MSI Afterburner and Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU), there’re great chances that your game will crash constantly. You can therefore try to stop overclocking and see if it fixes the crash.
If this method doesn’t work out for you, please move on to the next one.
Fix 6: Perform a clean boot
One possible cause of game crashes is that you’re having software conflicts. If that’s the case, you can perform a clean boot to root out the offender.
- On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to invoke the Run box. Type msconfig and press Enter.
- Navigate to the Services tab, then check the box next to Hide all Microsoft services.
- Find services that DO NOT belong to your graphics card or sound card manufacturers such as NVIDIA, AMD, Realtek, Intel. Uncheck the boxes next to these services and click OK.
- Restart your computer and test your gameplay in Spellbreak.
- If the crash stops, you can root out the conflicting software by repeating these steps, but only disable half of the services.
If the crash reappears, you can check out the next solution.
Fix 7: Disable VSync
VSync refers to Vertical Sync, a graphics technology that synchronizes the in-game FPS with the refresh rate of your monitor. While it repairs the screen tearing issue in some games, it cloud also trigger instability according to some feedback. So you can try to turn it off and see how it goes.
You can disable VSync in the control panel of your graphics card. And here’s an example of NVIDIA:
- Right-click the empty area of your desktop and select NVIDIA Control Panel.
- From the left menu, select Manage 3D settings. Make sure you’re at the Global Settings tab, then click the text next to Vertical sync and select off.
- Launch Spellbreak and see if the crash stops.
