PC gamers who are keen to experience the martial arts magnificence that is Sifu are facing a testing challenge. A test of patience, self-control, and determination. And that's because of the Sifu Crashing Error, which has been preventing them from enjoying the game as they would have hoped.
If you are one of those players who has encountered what is arguably the toughest opponent you will face on Sifu (and that's saying something) you may be looking for some help. And that's why we've put together this article, to run you through our top tips to help resolve the crashing problem on PC.
How To Fix Sifu Crashing on PC
There are a number of potential solutions to the crashing issue. But before we get into those, it's really important to ensure that your computer meets the minimum recommended specs for Sifu. If you don't have a sufficiently powerful computer, you are always going to run into performance difficulties. But assuming your PC does meet those requirements, here's what to do next.
Steps to Stop Crashing
- First and foremost, try the classic system restart. Sometimes, if this is a one-off glitch, this will fix the problem.
- Next, make sure you have checked for any system or software updates. This is applicable to your graphics drivers as well. If you have an AMD graphics card, check here. For Intel, go here and for GeForce, go here.
- Check that you have the latest version of DirectX as well.
- In case third-party software is interfering with the game, you can try running Sifu after a clean boot. To do this:
- Press Windows Key + R and type msconfig, then press Enter
- Go to the Services tab
- Check the box marked Hide all Microsoft services
- Click Disable all
- Go to the Startup tab and click on Open Task Manager
- Disable one task at a time and restart the system.
- Your next option is to try repairing the game files. As this is currently an Epic games exclusive on PC, the process you need to follow is this:
- Navigate to the game in your Library, and click on the three dots.
- Next, click Verify in the drop-down.
- Wait for the process to complete. It normally takes a few minutes. Once it has finished, click Launch to start the game.
- Make sure you aren't overclocking your computer. While in theory this can boost performance, on occasion it can do the opposite, as well as damage your hardware. You can also try lowering the performance settings on the game, to see whether this remedies the issue.
- Last, but not least, if nothing else works, try uninstalling the game, and then reinstalling it.
If none of these solutions works, you can contact the developers on Twitter @SifuGame for additional support.
What Is The Sifu Crashing Error?
Put simply, the Sifu crashing error is causing the game to crash. Most typically, this is happening when players are attempting to start the game. Which is probably better than it happening in the middle of a boss fight. But still extremely irritating.
It's unclear at this point exactly why this is happening. The wide range of potential fixes we've outlined suggests there may be more than one underlying issue. Which makes pinpointing a solution more difficult. Working your way through our fixes is the best approach.
But if none of these works, then you may need to wait for a patch to be released by the developers to properly address the issue. If one arrives, make sure to download and install it as soon as possible.
