After its recent launch, players are reporting Tower of Fantasy crashing issues, which are starting to impact their experience of this new world. While issues with new games are almost inevitable, problems such as crashing make the game virtually unplayable. Which, as the old saying goes, is not great.

As crashing towers go, this is up there with the Tower of Babel and Jenga in terms of their seriousness. Definitely top three. But unlike the other two examples, there are some potential fixes for you to explore. Let's crack on. Aida won't explore itself.

Check For Server Issues

We already know there are a lot of servers to choose from. But it is possible that the server you are trying to join is experiencing some problems. You can check the official ToF Twitter feed for updates.

If there are any issues, you can either wait for those to be resolved, or potentially try connecting to a different server, to see if that circumvents the issue.

Reset Your System

Sometimes, all you need to do is restart your system. It's the classic turn something off then back on again. But it can be effective in this case.

If you want to go the whole hog, you can restart your router as well. And while we're on the subject of your internet connection...

Optimise Your Network Connection

Try to minimise the amount of traffic on your network. So don't be streaming any 4K movies while you're trying to play the game.

If you are using WiFi, switching to an ethernet connection (if possible) will usually improve the stability of your connection.

You can also move closer to your router if a wired connection isn't an option.

Check for Updates

With new games, you'll often find that patches and updates come thick and fast after the release of the game, as problems are identified and hotfixes are supplied.

So check to see whether your game has any updates pending, and install any that are available.

It's also worth checking for any system updates for your device, to make sure you are running the latest software.

Check Your Anti-Virus

Another common cause for these sorts of problems is an overzealous anti-virus and/or firewall. These can sometimes block the game from running properly.

So either add your game to the whitelist to prevent them from being erroneously blocked, or temporarily disable your anti-virus/firewall, to see if this makes a difference.

Verify Integrity of the Game Files

Finally, it's possible that a game file has been corrupted. If you're on PC, you can easily resolve this by verifying the integrity of your game files on Steam:

  • Load Steam.
  • From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
  • Select the Local files tab and click Verify integrity of game files...
  • Wait for the process to finish. It typically takes several minutes.

If you aren't using Steam, then you can start the launcher and go to Game Settings. From here, press Repair. It will check your files, and identify and repair any that aren't as they should be.

If All Else Fails

If you've made it this far without success, then you always have the option of uninstalling and reinstalling the game.

And if that doesn't work, you can either reach out to the developers for support by clicking the Contact Us link on their homepage, or keep waiting for updates to see if they improve the situation.
