Update your Video Card drivers
If you have all of the necessary equipment to play MADiSON and are still having problems, it’s very probable that your video card driver is the cause of the game’s crashes. We strongly urge you to update your driver to the most recent version. Here is how to do it:
- Press Windows + R.
- Click OK after typing “DxDiag.”
- Select the Display tab when the DirectX Diagnostic Tool has loaded.
- The name and manufacturer of the video card are provided in the Device section.
- To get the most up-to-date driver, go to the manufacturer’s website. For help with driver updates, contact the driver manufacturer. Contact the computer maker if the computer is still under warranty.
Performing a Clean Boot will suspend all third-party apps and will remove any potentially troublesome applications that might interfere with the game. It will also allow your computer to run faster by cleaning up resources on your PC. Here’s how to do it:
- Using Windows Key + R, type MSConfig and press Enter.
- Go to the Services section of the menu.
- Check Hide all Microsoft services
- Now, select Disable all from the drop-down menu.
- Open Task Manager by going to the Startup tab and clicking it. Disable one task at a time and restart the system.
Scan and Repair Game Files
The Battle.Net launcher’s scan and repair feature allows you to check for game file corruption and repair it. Here’s how to do it:
- Click the cogwheel/settings icon in the Battle.Net launcher.
- Select Scan and Repair.
- Wait for the procedure to finish
Check Internet Connection
MADiSON requires a stable internet connection to work, therefore a problem with your internet connection could cause the game to crash so do make sure that your internet connection is working. You can do that by performing basic troubleshooting and trying to launch any other online game.
Install MADiSON on SSD
Another way to fix the MADiSON low fps issue is to install the game on SSD. This can speed up the loading of the game files which can possibly give you a relatively higher frame rate. It should be noted that it is recommended in the system requirements that the game demands SDD.
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. These include:
- MSI Afterburner
- Nvidia GeForce Experience
- Photoshop, etc
Enable Game mode and GPU scheduling
In order to increase MADiSON’s performance, you can also try enabling Game Mode on Windows 10 and 11. It will help in minimizing the background processes so that MADiSON 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 MADiSON graphics performance.
Stop Background downloads
Maybe, you’re trying to download or install other game updates at the same time. It’s best to suspend or stop any other background downloads when launching and playing MADiSON. You can continue downloading games or patch updates after you’ve finished playing.
After going through all the fixes if you are still having the same issues, you can give your one last shot by reinstalling MADiSON.
