Recommended Fixes for Sifu Issues
There are lots of factors that may cause Sifu crashes, black screen, lag, screen tearing, and stuttering. If you’re one of the Sifu 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 Sifu System Requirements
One of the main reasons for having Sifu crashing and black screen issues are not meeting at least the recommended system requirements of the game. If you downloaded Sifu without checking the requirements first, you can find the full system requirements below:

- GPU:GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 390X or equivalent
- Storage: 22 GB
For those who meet the requirements but still getting the issues mentioned above, below are the fixes that you can try.
Update Your Drivers
Sifu 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 If you meet the minimum requirements of the game, it’s likely that your outdated graphics driver is the main reason why Sifu is crashing.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 Sifu.
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 Sifu crashing. We highly suggest closing the software that you are not using while playing Sifu.
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 Sifu keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that Sifu’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 Sifu from the official store, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Sifu and see if the problem has been solved.
Contact the Official Support
If you’re still having some Sifu 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 Sifu discussion community on Steam.
