Deathloop has launched to widespread acclaim, but PC users are suffering from Deathloop Void Engine Error. Also known as Error Code 0xC000001D, the awful bug is causing the game to crash. This somewhat takes the shine of what is generally regarded as something of a masterpiece. The big question at this stage, is whether this is something fixable, or whether we will need to wait for a patch to fix it.
Rather than feeling like you are living the same day over and over again, let's see what we can do, to stop this problem from endlessly repeating. Here's what you can do about Error Code 0xC000001D.
How To Fix Error Code 0xC000001D
While we wait for Bethesda to provide a definitive answer to this knotty problem, there are a few recommended actions which might help to overcome this particular issue:
- Check that your system meets the minimum requirements for the game.
- There is a suggestion that overclocking graphics cards has been a common factor with this error. Overclocking your GPU may lead to better performance, but it can also wreck your equipment. So make sure you have disabled overclocking.
- Try freeing up some room on your hard drive.
- Make sure Windows is fully up to date. Also ensure you are running the latest version of DirectX.
- Make sure you have the latest graphics drivers installed. If you use AMD, go here. For NVIDIA, here, and for Intel, here.
- In case any game files have been corrupted, you can use Steam to verify the integrity of the game files. To do this:
- Restart your computer and launch Steam
- Next, you can either right click the game in your Library, or click the gear icon from the game's Library page on the far right.
- From the drop down menu, select Properties.
- Select the Local Files tab and click the Verify integrity of game files... button.
- The process takes several minutes to complete, so don't get impatient!
- Try granting Deathloop Administrator privileges:
- Right-click on the game file and select Properties
- Select the Compatibility tab, then Run as administrator
- If all else fails, try uninstalling, then reinstalling the game.
Should you find that nothing is working, you can submit a ticket to Bethesda Support directly. But what exactly is Error Code 0xC000001D? Let's take a look.

What is Deathloop Void Engine Error Code 0xC000001D?
Error Code 0xC000001D does seem to be specific to PC gamers. The accompanying error message makes reference to VoidEngine. This is a game engine designed by Arkane Studios, the makers of Deathloop. So there is a pretty strong inference that the game engine is at least partially responsible for throwing up this error.
When the error hits, it causes Deathloop to crash, leaving players with little option but to close it down, and relaunch it, and hope that it doesn't happen again. Hopefully, the solutions we've suggested above will provide an effective remedy. At least until the developers identify the cause of the issue, and fix it for good.
