    Update your Video Card drivers

    If you have everything you need to play Digimon Survive but are still experiencing issues, it’s quite likely that your video card driver is to blame. Please update to the most recent version of your driver as soon as possible. Here’s how to go about it:

    • Press Windows + R.
    • Click OK after typing “DxDiag.”
    • 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 machine is still covered by warranty, get in touch with the manufacturer.

    The game will operate smoothly and hopefully without crashes using the most recent drivers. The most recent drivers for AMD and Nvidia can both be accessed on their respective official websites.

    Run Digimon Survive as an administrator

    Lack of administrative privileges might be a contributing factor in the game’s failure. Try starting Digimon Survive in administrator mode. This is the procedure.

    • Right-click the Stray.exe file to open it.
    • Click on Properties.
    • The Compatibility tab should be chosen.
    • Check the option that says “Run this software as an administrator.”
    • Save any changes you make.

    Disable Windows Defender or Antivirus

    A constrained firewall can also cause Endling: Extinction is Forever to crash. Security is increased by routinely updating antivirus software. It’s possible that Endling: Extinction is Forever’s executable file (.exe) has a virus warning.

    As a result, you might want to consider temporarily turning off Windows Defender or any other antivirus programs you might be using. If you download Endling: Extinction is Forever from the official shop, we promise that the game’s files are completely secure.

    Clean Boot

    By performing a Clean Boot, all third-party applications will be put on hold and any potentially problematic programs that might interfere with the game will be deleted. By clearing out resources on your PC, it will also enable your machine to function more quickly. This is how you do it:

    • Press Windows Key + R, enter MSConfig, and then click OK.
    • Navigate to the menu’s Services section.
    • Check Hide all Microsoft services
    • Choose Disable all from the drop-down menu.
    • Go to the Startup tab and click the button to launch Task Manager. Restart the system after disabling each task individually.

    Switch from Full-Screen to Windowed mode then switch back

    The most common reason for a black screen is a temporary graphics configuration error. This might be resolved by alternating between windowed and full-screen modes. This is how you do it:

    • While your game is running, simultaneously press the Alt and Enter keys on your keyboard to switch to windowed mode.
    • Press the Alt and Enter keys on your keyboard simultaneously to return to full-screen mode.

    Update DirectX

    DirectX installation can cause a lot of games to crash on startup and Stray is no exception. If the game is crashing on startup, you need to update DirectX to the latest version.

    Enable Game Mode and GPU Scheduling

    In order to increase Digimon Survive performance, you can also try enabling Game Mode on Windows 10 and 11. It will help in minimizing the background processes so that your Digimon Survive gets more FPS and better performance.
    You can do it by typing “Game Mode“ in Windows Search and selecting Game Mode settings. There will be an option to turn on the Game Mode.
    Furthermore, you can also enable Hardware Accelerated GPU scheduling to enhance Digimon Survive graphics performance.

    Disable Background/Startup Applications

    There may be a number of applications running on your PC hogging up space and processing power. Close the software that is not in your use while playing.

    Reinstall Digimon Survive

    After going through all the fixes if you are still having the Digimon Survive crashing issue, you can give your one last shot by reinstalling it.
