Let’s get this troubleshooting guide started.
1] Install the latest version of Visual Studio C++ Redistributable and DirectX
Visual Studio C++ Redistributable and DirectX are tools that allow you to have an overall better experience. It is mandatory to make sure that you are using the latest version of both tools in order to run games like Daemon X Machina smoothly on your PC. Otherwise, you will come face to face with crashing, and freezing issues. So, go ahead and install the latest version of Visual Studio C++ Redistributable and DirectX on your computer and then run the game, hopefully, your issue will be resolved.
2] Disable Steam Overlay
Steam has a feature called Overlay, providing access to many of Steam’s features when playing the game. Having access to Steam’s features while playing games sound good but in reality it is overrated. We are going to disable it as most of the games are not compatible with it and you can also boost your FPS.
You can either disable Overlay on all games or just the game, we have steps for both scenarios.
Turn off In-Game Overlay
- Launch Steam and visit its Library.
- Right-click on Daemon X Machina and click on the Properties option.
- Under the General Section, unselect Enable the Steam Overlay while in-game.
Turn off the Overlay for all Steam games
- Open Steam.
- Click on Steam > Settings.
- Go to In-Game and untick the box next to Enable the Steam Overlay while in-game
Once you disable the Steam Overlays, run the game to see if the Overlays were the issue or not.
3] Update your Graphics Driver
An outdated Graphics Driver is one of the most common reasons why your game is not working. We recommend you update your Graphics Driver instantly and then check if the issue persists or not. Here are some of the ways to manually update it:
- Install a free driver update software
- Get the driver from the manufacturer’s website
- Install Driver and Optional Update.
- Update GPU Driver from Device Manager
Fingers crossed, you won’t have the issue in question anymore.
4] Launch the game from its location
If you get a Fatal Error when launching the game, go to the location where the game is installed and then launch it from there. This will allow the game to access all the required files at the time of startup.
5] Verify game file integrity
If your game files are corrupted or missing then you should verify the integrity of the game files to resolve the issue. Here’s how to verify it using the launcher.
- Open Steam and head to its Library.
- Right-click on the game and select the Properties option.
- In the Local Files tab, select Verify integrity of game files.
- Open Epic Games launcher.
- Go to Library and then to the game.
- Click on the Verify button.
Once the whole process is completed, launch the game and check the issue status. Hopefully, this will do the job.
6] Disable Overclocking
The reason behind the said issue can be overclocking GPU and CPU. Indeed, it increases your Graphic Cards’ clock speed so that you’ll have better performance. However, doing so is more trouble than it’s worth as it stops the game from working properly due to extra load on the PC. Disabling Overclocking is recommended as it resolves the issue.
7] Run the game as an admin
Usually, a lack of administrative privileges right stops the game from having needed resources, and hence the issue occurs. To resolve the issue you can right-click on the game’s executable file and select Run as administrator.
Alternatively, you can configure the properties of Steam to always open with administrative privileges. If you want to do that, follow the steps mentioned below.
- Navigate to the Daemon X Machina game or Steam.
- Right-click on it and then click on the Properties option.
- Go to the Compatibility tab and tick the box Run this program as an admin.
- Select Apply and OK button.
Reopen your game to see whether the issue persists or not.
