Ready Or Not has been getting a lot of attention lately because of its revival on the tactical FPS genre and for their “realism first” attitude on providing a gameplay experience. Since the game just went up recently and is still in its early access phase, players experience game crashes from time to time.
In this guide, we’re going to take a look at some possible fixes that will help prevent Ready Or Not from crashing.
How to fix Ready Or Not crashes and errors
To fix the crashes and errors that you encounter when starting Ready or Not, hard restart your PC. For those who already have the early access build installed, there might be an update that you need to download. If the issue still persists follow the steps below:
Sometimes, if an important game files gets corrupted or goes missing, the game won’t function properly which would lead to a crash. This especially happens when you play with modded assets.
Don’t worry because you can simply verify the game files and repair the game through Steam with these steps:
Go to Steam > Library
Right click on Ready Or Not > Properties
Click on Local Files > Click on “Verify integrity of game files…”
If Steam finds a corrupted file, it will re-download and repair the file for you. Reload the game to test it out. If the game still crashes, try the other fixes.
Check the Game Mods
This only applies to you if you have added mods to Ready Or Not; if not, you can skip to the next fix.
This is another option to fix the game through its game files if, and only if, you think its the mods that you’ve added that are causing the crashes and you feel that you can surgically repair the game. Follow these steps:
On your PC’s file explorer, locate Ready Or Not’s Content folder (SteamLibrary > steamapps > common > Ready Or Not > ReadyOrNot > Content)
Identify which mod folder contains the problem mod
Paks folder for game model assets
FMOD folder for in-game sounds
VO folder > TOC folder for TOC voice lines
Remove/Modify the problem mod
Reload and test the game afterwards. If the game still crashes, we recommend the “Verify Integrity…” option for a wider scope. Or, try out the other fixes.
Check for the Latest Game Patch
Since the game is in an early access state, expect that there will be patches sent out frequently. Steam usually provides alerts in case there’s a pending update for the game. If there is, make sure to download it and then relaunch the game. If the game still crashes, try the other fixes.
Update Your Graphics Driver
As the game updates, they sometimes require an update from your graphics card’s driver. Just simply download the latest driver from your GPUs management program, or you can also download them manually through the official websites:
