Update PC Drivers

Another reason why you’re getting a black screen and random game crash while playing Yakuza 3 Remastered is your outdated drivers. Below are the download links where you can get the latest and official drivers for your computer.

Stop Resource-Hogging Software

Chances are you have lots of applications installed on your PC. Some of these applications have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger Yakuza 3 Remastered crashing. We highly suggest closing the applications that you are not using while playing Yakuza 3 Remastered.

Some of the most popular applications that eat lots of resources while in the background are web browsers like Firefox and Chrome Browser, Media Players like VLC,  and more. You can also check the Task Manager and see if there’s any application eating lots of resources in your background.

Exclude or Temporarily Disable Antivirus

Another reason why Yakuza 3 Remastered keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies such as AVG and Norton have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that Yakuza 3 Remastered’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus.

If you download Yakuza 3 Remastered from the official site such as Steam, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. Your antivirus may be giving you false positive report. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Yakuza 3 Remastered and see if the problem has been solved.
