For those who didn’t meet the minimum requirements, then the only way for you to play Scars of Summer is by getting a hardware upgrade. Players who meet the minimum and recommended requirements can try the following fixes to solve the issues in the game.

Enable Windowed Mode Instead of Fullscreen

If your game is crashing, we recommend playing it on Windowed mode. Unfortunately, there’s a chance that the borderless window and fullscreen mode of Scars of Summer may cause some conflict with your system. This kind of issue is one of the problems that the developer needs to address.

Verify Scars of Summer Game Integrity on Steam

Every time that you encounter the game crashing on Scars of Summer, you should first verify the integrity of the game. This process will repair any damaged or missing files that cause your Scars of Summer game to crash. Below are the steps on how to do this:

  1. Open Steam and click the Library tab.
  2. On the left side, find and right-click the Scars of Summer icon.
  3. Select Properties and go to the Local Files tab.
  4. Under this section, click the “Verify integrity of game files…” button.

Wait until the verification is complete and see if the issue has been solved. If not, proceed to the next step.

Update PC Drivers

Another reason why you’re getting a black screen and random game crash while playing Scars of Summer is your outdated PC drivers. Below are the download links where you can get the latest and official drivers for your computer.

Stop Resource-Hogging Software

Chances are that you have a lot of applications installed on your PC. Some of these applications have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger Scars of Summer crashing. We highly suggest closing the applications that you are not using while playing Scars of Summer.

Some of the most popular apps that eat a lot of resources while in the background are web browsers like Chrome Browser, media players like VLC, and more. You can also check the Task Manager and see if there’s any application eating lots of resources in your background.

Exclude or Temporarily Disable Antivirus

Another reason why Scars of Summer keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies such as ESET and AVG have usually updated their software to improve security. There’s a chance that Scars of Summer’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus.

If you download Scars of Summer from the official site such as Steam, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. Your antivirus may be giving you a false positive report. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Scars of Summer and see if the problem has been solved.
