Fix 2: Update your graphic driver

Updating graphic drivers can fix the issue in most of the time. So the first thing you have to do is updating the graphic drivers.

There’re mainly 2 ways you can update your graphics driver: manually or automatically.

Option 1: Update your graphics driver manually

If you’re a tech-savvy gamer, you can spend some time updating your GPU driver manually.

To do so, first visit the website of your GPU manufacturer:

Then search for your GPU model. Note that you should only download the latest driver installer that’s compatible with your operating system. Once downloaded, open the installer and follow the on-screen instructions to update.

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your video drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for your exact graphics card, 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 Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.(This requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All.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.)
  4. Simply restart the game and check the issue persists or not.
The Pro version of Driver Easy comes with full technical support.

Fix 3: Disable Steam overlay

Steam might be the culprit for the Tribes of Midgard crashing issue. The Steam overlay controls a lot of fancy features which consume a lot of resources on your PC. We recommend you to close these features and check the game again.

  1. Run Steam.
  2. Go to Library and right-click Tribes of Midgard. Then select Properties.
  3. Under the General section, uncheck Enable Steam Overlay while in-game tick box.
  4. Restart Tribes of Midgard and see if you’re still getting these crashes.

Fix 4: Verify game integrity on Steam

It’s quite common to encounter Tribes of Midgard crashes on launch or during the game when the game files are corrupted. The file corruption usually lead to crashing, freezing, not launching and black screen.
So simply verify the game integrity of Tribes of Midgard is a way to fix the game crashing.

  1. Run Steam.
  2. Go to Library and locate Tribes of Midgard.
  3. Right-click on Tribes of Midgard and select Properties.
  4. Click Local Files section in the left panel, then click Verify integrity of game files
  5. After the process is completed, relaunc the game.

If there’s no luck, head to the next fix.

Fix 5: Launch in Windowed mode

It’s inexplicable but running Tribes of Midgard in windowed mode sometimes fix the crashing issue.

  1. Open Steam and go to Library.
  2. Right-click Tribes of Midgard and select Properties.
  3. In the General section, click the Set Launch Options button.
  4. In the text field, copy the following codes -windowed -noborder.
  5. Save the change and relaunch the game.

Fix 6: Disable antivirus software

Antivirus software is aiming to protect our PC away from malware and virus, however, it could be the culprit of the game crashing. The antivirus software may have conflicts with the game files, so you could disable your antivirus software then launch the game.

If the game is running in a normal way, you need to consider changing your antivirus software.

Don’t forget to turn off all the background applications before running Tribes of Midgard. The background applications consume a lot of resources that hold back the gaming performances.

By the way, remember to enable your antivirus software afterwards.
