Update the graphics card

With upgraded drivers, the game should function without crashing. The most recent drivers for AMD and Nvidia can both be accessed on their respective official websites.
DirectX files issues
Arcadegeddon is one of the games that can crash when launched after installing DirectX. Update DirectX to the most recent version if the game crashes when it starts up.
Verify File Integrity
The game will crash if there is a problem installing the game files or if part of the files are corrupt. There is a quick and simple solution to fix this so you don’t have to reinstall the full game. Take these actions.
- Go to Epic Games Store
- Go to Library
- Open Arcadegeddon
- Click on the three dots (…)
- Click Verify
Wait until the verification completes and relaunch the game to check if it still crashes at launch. Relaunch the game after the verification is finished to see whether it still crashes when restarted.
Run Arcadegeddon as an Administrator
Lack of administrative access can be responsible for the DNF Duel crashing issue. Try launching it in administrator mode.
- Right-click on the Arcadegeddon.exe file.
- Click on Properties.
- Open the Compatibility tab.
- Select the “Run this software as an administrator” checkbox.
- Save any changes you make.
Set Windows System to Best Performance
Even if you aren’t using any demanding software or games and your hardware configuration is adequate, you should still set your Windows computer to run in Best Performance mode by eliminating any extra features or improvements if you’re experiencing performance issues. This is how you do it:
- Open Windows Search and set it to “Performance.”
- Modify Windows’ performance and appearance in Adjust option.
- Choose the option “Adjust for best performance.”
It should be mentioned that turning on the best performance option would change the typeface design, alter the UI elements, and reduce the system’s graphical quality. Don’t worry, though. Simply go back to the previous options if this doesn’t work.
Update your video card drivers
If everything else checks out, the video card might be the issue. Please update to the most recent version of your driver as soon as possible. Here’s how to go about it:
Press Windows + R.
After entering “DxDiag,” click OK.
When the DirectX Diagnostic Tool has launched, choose the Display tab.
In the Device section, it is stated what the video card is called and who made it.
Visit the manufacturer’s website to download the latest recent driver. Contact the driver’s manufacturer for assistance with upgrades. If the device is still covered by warranty, get in touch with the manufacturer.
