How To Fix V Rising Lag And Stuttering
When it comes to video games, lag and stuttering can be really annoying. In case you are experiencing lag or stutter while playing V Rising, here are some things you can do to fix the issue.
First things first, you need to make sure that your computer meets the minimum requirements for V Rising. If your computer does meet the minimum requirements, then you can start with the steps below.
Install the latest patch
The developers released Patch 0.5.41591 on May 30, 2022. This patch includes general client optimizations to improve the stability and performance of the game. The game should update automatically when you are not playing, so you don't need to install it manually.
Tweak the in-game settings
The latest patch allows players to tweak settings like Texture Quality and FPS. You can access these settings in the Advanced Graphics Options menu.
Just set these settings to the lowest configuration and check if the lag and stuttering are gone.
Update your video card drivers
If your video card is old or outdated, then it may be causing lag and stuttering in your game. You should update your video card drivers to the latest version. You can quickly check for any updates - if you have an Intel-based system, go here. If you are on AMD, go here, and for NVIDIA, go here.
Change your FPS via the graphics control panel
The graphics control panel allows you to cap your PC’s framerates either for all games on your PC or just for specific games. This reduces screen tearing in games and saves battery power. The process of changing the maximum FPS is different for different graphic cards. Basically, you need to set the max FPS to 60.
Give V Rising High Priority
You can give V Rising High Priority, which means more of the processing power will be devoted to it. To do this:
- Start Task Manager.
- Click on the Processes tab.
- Right-click on V Rising and choose Set Priority.
- You can then give the game High Priority.
Close all other third-party applications on your computer
You may have many third-party programs running in the background that are using your computer resources. Programs like Discord, Chrome, and Firefox consume too much of your memory, so it would be a good idea to terminate them all via Task Manager.
Disable Steam Overlay
Some players have suggested that disabling the Steam Overlay can fix the lagging issue. Disabling the Steam Overlay can certainly give you a much-needed improvement in average FPS. To do that:
- Launch Steam client
- Click on Library and right-click on V Rising
- Select Properties and uncheck Enable the Steam Overlay while in-game.
If none of these fixes works, then reach out to the developers for further help and advice. You can either contact them on Twitter or send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the game is in Early Access, it is normal for there to be bugs and errors. It is best to report the issues to the developers so that they can address them. Hopefully, they will release a new patch soon to fix the issues.
