Steam’s Game Integrity Verification

Every time that you encounter the game crashing on Soul Dossier, you should first verify the integrity of the game. This process will repair any damaged or missing files that cause your Soul Dossier 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 Soul Dossier’s icon.
  3. Select Properties and go to 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Another reason why you’re getting a black screen and random game crash while playing Soul Dossier is your outdated drivers. Below are the download links where you can get the latest and official drivers for your computer.


Kill Resource-Hogging Software

Chances are you have lots of software installed on your PC. Some of these softwares have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger Soul Dossier crashing. We highly suggest closing the applications that you are not using while playing Soul Dossier.

Some of the most popular applications that eat lots of resources while in the background are Media Players, Chrome Browser,  and more. You can close these applications by closing them using the Task Manager.


Exclude or Temporarily Disable Antivirus

Another reason why Soul Dossier keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that Soul Dossier’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus.

If you download the Soul Dossier from the official site such as Steam, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Soul Dossier and see if the problem has been solved.


And that’s all for this Soul Dossier troubleshooting guide. We’re hoping that the method above helped you. If you have more suggestion, feel free to tell us by leaving a comment below.
