Dakar Desert Rally Crashes

General Tips

Please try these steps if your game crashes:

  • Verify game files (Epic Games Store or Steam).
  • Before starting the game, disable all controllers (steering wheels, gamepads, headphones, and even a keyboard) and the respective Overlay Applications and Background Applications.
  • Run the game as an administrator.
  • Reinstall DirectX.
  • Force run the game in DirectX 11.
  • Update the Unreal Engine.
  • Disable built-in\integrated GPU.
  • Disable CPU or GPU Overclocking.
  • Update your drivers to the latest version.
  • Disable Windows Firewall or Antivirus Program.
  • Reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime.
  • Apply the latest Windows updates.
  • Try using AMD Clean Up Utility.
  • Disable Image Sharpening in NVIDIA GeForce Experience.
  • Disable Fullscreen Optimizations.
  • Try setting a higher priority for Dakar Desert Rally in Windows Task Manager.
  • Set High Performance in Power Options.
  • If you have multiple monitors connected, try leaving only one primary.

We recommend doing a full clean of GPU drivers and making a fresh install of the latest version. If a new version doesn’t fix it, maybe try one of the older ones. NVIDIA recommends Display Driver Uninstaller for clean removal, so you may want to start with it.
