How to Fix GRIT Crashing, Stuttering, and Other Performance Issues
GRIT is the latest game by developer Team GRIT. Since its release, many players are complaining about the GRIT crashing, lagging, and sometimes, black screen. While the developer has been continuously releasing new updates to fix these kinds of concerns, it seems that not every loophole has been fixed. While we are still waiting for a new update to fix these issues, here are the recommended methods to fix the GRIT in-game issues.
Known GRIT Issues
Here is the list of issues that have been reported by many players while playing GRIT:
- Black Screen
- Screen Tearing
Recommended Fixes for GRIT Issues
There are lots of factors that may cause GRIT crashes, black screen, lag, screen tearing, and stuttering. If you’re one of the GRIT players having at least one of the mentioned issues, here are the recommended steps that you need to do to fix and address the problem.
Check GRIT System Requirements
One of the main reasons for having GRIT crashing and black screen issues are not meeting at least the recommended system requirements of the game. If you downloaded GRIT without checking the requirements first, you can find the full system requirements below:
GRIT System Requirements
- OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10
- Processor: Intel Core i5-4430 / AMD FX-6300
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB / AMD Radeon R7 370 2GB
- DirectX: Version 12
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Storage: 20 GB available space
For those who meet the requirements but still getting the issues mentioned above, below are the fixes that you can try.
Update Your Drivers
GRIT 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 If you meet the minimum requirements of the game, it’s likely that your outdated graphics driver is the main reason why GRIT is crashing.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 GRIT.
Verify Game Integrity
Assuming that you tried the two methods above but still experiencing some GRIT issues, you can try verifying the game integrity of GRIT. Using this process, Steam will scan all the needed files or fix any corrupted files associated with GRIT.
- Open Steam and go to Library.
- Select GRIT from the game list on the left side.
- Right-click and select Properties.
- Click the Local Files tab.
- Click the Verify integrity of game files… button.
Check out the image below for the steps.
Right after clicking the verify button, all you have to do is wait until Steam completes the file verification for GRIT.
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 GRIT crashing. We highly suggest closing the software that you are not using while playing GRIT.
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.
Another reason why GRIT keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that GRIT’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 GRIT from the official store, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. So, you have to exclude the .exe of GRIT and see if the problem has been solved.
Contact the Official Support
If you’re still having some GRIT issues after trying all the recommended fixes above, you can always reach the official support team of Rogue Legends. You can visit their official website or join the discussion on the GRIT discussion community on Steam.
