Rocket League is one of the most popular video games out there, and this has much to do with its impressive multiplayer gameplay, and the fact that the developer supports cross-platform play between Windows 10 (Steam), Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One gamers. It’s a great game, but like most games, the title is not without its problems. Problems will arise, some of which requires the user’s technical ability rather than an update from the developer.
Now, one of the most common problems players have come across with Rocket League is the game lagging or even crashing out of nowhere. Sometimes it fails to work right out, so what gives, and is this issue fixable without having to re-install the game?
Rocket League not working
Let’s take a look at some of the ways to fix Rocket League
1] Check Launch Options
Launch Steam, then seek out Rocket League by going to Library. Here, then, you must right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
After clicking on Properties, the user must now select Launch Options, then type NoStartUp into the box and press the Enter key on your keyboard or click on OK.
Make the next move to the option that says Local Files, then simply click on Verify Integrity of Game Files and patiently wait until the task is completed.
2] Disable Overlay
The overlay that Steam provides could be the issue behind Rocket League failing to work as it should. To find out, we’d like to recommend the option of disabling the overlay.
Click on the word Steam at the top, then Settings, and take a scroll to In-Game. Click on that and make sure to disable the Overlay.
3] Check for problems with compatibility
This is a stretch, but Rocket League might not be working due to compatibility problems with one or more of your computer’s hardware. Did you make changes recently? This is something you must take into consideration.
Open the Properties section of Rocket League again and click on Local Files. After that, select Browse Files and move on to the next step.
Navigate to the Binaries folder, then open the Win32 folder. Locate the Rocket League launcher, then right-click on it, and select the option to check for issues with compatibility.
Finally, restart your computer, launch Steam, and attempt to play Rocket League once more.
4] Fix Lag issues
If your Rocket League lags, update your Graphics Driver and see.
If that does not help, here is what you need to do.
Open C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\Rocket League\TAGame\Config
Open TASystemSettings.ini, look for ScreenPercentage and change its value to any number below 45.000000.
Next, find and replace every value of MaxLODSize to 128.
Save and exit. See if this helps. If not revert to the old values.
Hope something helps!
