For those who meet the requirements but still getting the issues mentioned above, below are the fixes that you can try.
Update Your Drivers
Salt and Sacrifice 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 If you meet the minimum requirements of the game, it’s likely that your outdated graphics driver is the main reason why Salt and Sacrifice is crashing.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 Salt and Sacrifice. You can follow the steps below on how to use the software:
Click the Scan button and let Driver Booster scan any outdated drivers on your PC.
If the software found any outdated driver, click the Update Now button located on the upper left of the window.
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 Salt and Sacrifice 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 Salt and Sacrifice issues, you can try verifying the game integrity of Salt and Sacrifice. Using this process, Epic Game Launcher will scan all the needed files or fix any corrupted files associated with Salt and Sacrifice.
Open the launcher and go to Library.
Select Salt and Sacrifice from the game list on the left side.
Click the three dots next to your game and select Verify.
Wait until the verification process is complete
You can try playing the game once the verification is complete and see if the issue has been solved.
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 Salt and Sacrifice crashing. We highly suggest closing the software that you are not using while playing Salt and Sacrifice.
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 Salt and Sacrifice keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that Salt and Sacrifice’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 Salt and Sacrifice from the official store, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Salt and Sacrifice and see if the problem has been solved.
Contact the Official Support
If you’re still having some Salt and Sacrifice issues after trying all the recommended fixes above, you can always reach the official support team of Salt and Sacrifice. You can visit their official website or join the discussion on the Salt and Sacrifice discussion community on Steam.
