Game Crashes

General Tips

Please try these steps if your game crashes:

  • Verify game files (Epic Games Store or Steam);
  • 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 Control Panel;
  • Disable Fullscreen Optimizations;
  • Try setting a higher priority for Dakar Desert Rally in Windows Task Manager;
  • Set High Performance in Power Options;
  • Before starting the game, disable all controllers (steering wheels, gamepads, headphones, and even a keyboard). In some cases, they can cause unexpected issues;
  • Try disabling Overlay Apps and Background Applications;
  • 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.
