Rage 2 will be the latest game from Publisher Bethesda Softworks and Developer Avalanche Studios, id Software and where players will find themselves in a world destroyed by an asteroid and now players must survive the onslaught of enemies.
Just like most new game release this game too comes with its own set of bugs, error, loading and crashing problems.
So below you will find a guide which will explain how to fix all the problems.
How To Fix Crashing And Game Not Loading/ Starting In Rage 2
Check for latest GPU
The first things you can do is to check whether you have the latest GPU drivers or not. if you are running an old version of graphics driver then update and run the game.
If you have been using the new version of the driver and the game still does not load. then try installing the older version of the graphics driver and running the game again.
Turn Off Overlay Programs
The second method you can use to utilize is to close all the overlay Programs. this is one of the common reason for the game not starting.
- Update your Graphics Card driver.
- If you have an overlay, for example, MSI Afterburner, Geforce recording and more then close them too.
- Try running the game in borderless window mode which can be changed from the video settings.
- Try changing Vsync to Adaptive from video settings.
Force Windowed Launch
The third step you can use is to launch steam, then right click on Rage 2 in the steam library. then open the properties tab and select the Launch Options present in the general tab.
In the new window, you will find a dialogue box. here you will need to type -windowed and apply.
This will force the game to start in windowed mode. so just start the game again and see if it is starting or not.
The final method should be your last resort. if the above-mentioned method does not work then you can try this method. but this a risky step so it is recommended that you maintain a backup.
So if you are ready to follow this step follow the steps listed below.
First go to C:\WINDOWS\System32\amdvlk64.dlll and delete the amdvlk64.dll file then try launching the game again.
