Update Your Drivers

The Cycle: Frontier is released in a good condition.

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 The Cycle: Frontier. 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 Click the Scan button and let Driver Booster scan any outdated drivers on your PC.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 If the software found any outdated driver, click the Update Now button located on the upper left of the window.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.

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 The Cycle: Frontier crashing. We highly suggest closing the software that you are not using while playing The Cycle: Frontier.

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 The Cycle: Frontier keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that The Cycle: Frontier’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 The Cycle: Frontier from the official store, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. So, you have to exclude the .exe of The Cycle: Frontier and see if the problem has been solved.

Contact the Official Support

If you’re still having some The Cycle: Frontier 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 The Cycle: Frontier discussion community on Steam.
