Update Your Drivers

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is released in a good condition. If you meet the minimum requirements of the game, it’s likely that your outdated graphics driver is the main reason why Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is crashing. We highly recommend getting the latest update for your PC. You can visit your hardware manufacturer’s official website to get the latest update for your device.

Manually downloading and installing drivers for your PC is time-consuming. For some, updating drivers may be a little bit complicated. For those who want an easier method, we recommend trying IObit’s Driver Booster to automatically download and fetch the latest and needed driver update for your PC. In our case, we used Driver Booster to update and fix the crashing and performance issues in Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition. You can follow the steps below on how to use the software:

  1. Download Driver Booster.
  2. Once downloaded, install and run the software.
  3. Click the Scan button and let Driver Booster scan any outdated drivers on your PC.
  4. If the software found any outdated driver, click the Update Now button located on the upper left of the window.
  5. Wait until the Driver Booster finished the driver download and installation process.

Note: Your PC may restart several times depending on the drivers that are being updated. Worry not, as this is a normal process for the Windows operating system.

After the driver update completion, try running Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition and see if you still encounter the issues that you have earlier.

Verify Game Integrity

Assuming that you tried the two methods above but still experiencing some Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition issues, you can try verifying the game integrity of Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition. Using this process, Steam will scan all the needed files or fix any corrupted files associated with Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition.

  • Right-click and select Properties.

Steam

Right after clicking the verify button, all you have to do is wait until Steam completes the file verification for Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition.

Kill Resource-Hogging Applications

Chances are you have lots of applications installed on your PC. Some of these applications have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition crashing. We highly suggest closing the software that you are not using while playing Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition.

Some of the most popular software that eats lots of resources while in the background are Media Players, web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome,  and more. You can close these applications by closing them using the Task Manager.

Disable Antivirus

Another reason why Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus. Disable or temporarily disable your antivirus or any security programs on your computer. If you download the Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition from the official store, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition and see if the problem has been solved.

Wow. You know darn well these aren’t fixes this is like basic operations 101 for every steam game ever in existence. You must be desperate for content. There is an actual fix for NVIDIA cards through the 3D Settings. Do some research and update this trash article.
