8# Two Worlds 2 Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 Crashes
Console version of the game randomly crashes in the general area of chegnaddar and hatmandor making it impossible to do quests. We have confirmed that a patch has already been submitted to Sony/Microsoft to be released this week. This patch will fix this issue and other minor issues like disappearing enemies.

9# Two Worlds 2 DirectX 10 Freezes
Let me guess, game runs perfect for you in DirectX 9 but whenever you try to run the game in DirectX 10, it freezes after few seconds. Leaving you only the option to restart your computer. Seems like its a driver bug, and can be resolved by reverting back to old drivers. Mostly this issue has been reported by people with nVidia GPU’s.

10# Two Worlds 2 has Stopped Working – Fix
If you try to run the game and encounter this error. Re-install nVidia Phys X driver package. This issue has only been reported by the people with nVidia cards so the solution is specific to nVidia cards.

11# Two Worlds 2 Voice Over Cut Off – Problem
Seems like different EU versions of the game may have main character’s voice over missing. You may experience voice over cut off from time to time. This happens only with the main character, all else is fine.

12# Two Worlds 2 Screen Resolution Bug – DirectX 10
If you run the game on DirectX 10 and your resolution appears to cut off the screen or stretched to the bottom right corner making the game unplayable. While everything is fine if you run the game in DirectX 9. To resolve this bug, right click on “twoworlds2_dx10 exe”, go to Properties, and click on compatibility tab. Now, check ‘Disable Display Scaling on High DPI Settings’.

13# Two Worlds 2 Torchlight/Light Bug – Fix
When you are in Dark places and try to use the torch light or any medium of light, it still stays dark making the game impossible to play at night time in game. Disable AA in Graphics options and in Driver Control Panel to resolve this issue.

14# Two Worlds 2 Stuck at Loading Screen
If you are running the game on DirectX 11, roll back to DirectX 9 and try to run the game. It will load just fine.

15# Two Worlds 2 Slow Auto Saves Bug – Fix
Some player have reported long time of making savegames in full screen. It is possibly caused by taking screen shot. Save screen shots can be turned off by console command: game.MakeSaveScreenShot 0. You can add this command to autosaveGame3.con file in Parameters subdirectory of save game.

16# Two Worlds 2 Distorted Images – Graphics Bug – Fix
If you are getting distorted images – lines going all over the screen while playing the game. Try rolling back to the 10.9 Drivers for ATI.

17# Blackscreen while In-Game Cinematics
If you see blackscreen while in-game cinematics is playing in the background. Try to deactivate HD Videos in the options. Or just rename the “sc3_video.wmv” to “sc3_videoxxx.wmv”.

      I’m getting #10 – TW2 has stopped working. It keeps happening in the same spot. I’m in the labyrinth, the dead knights pop up, I start fighting them and bam – Two worlds 2 has stopped working. I’m running TW2 on Steam on Win7-64, with nVidia drivers, so I figured your fix was right on the money, but it’s still happening even after updating my drivers. Help please? Other than this the game is phenomenal – a brilliant rpg.

        I am having the same problem with the same set up. Did anyone help with your problem? I can not figure it out.

    • Cassiano

      Dude, i’ve been playing this game for 10 hours, but it suddenly crashes when I’m about to do the captain’s quest (the one that tongue gives)… When I’m going to meet him, the game stop working. What can I do?

        Have your tried reinstalling your game. Back up your save files and then re-install it.

    • Summer

      Thanks man, your the best!
      I tried for 2 days to run the install. Your advise worked perfectly.

    • Skelter22

      I’m having problem # 12 on an XBOX 360. Anyone have a fix for that?

    • Luke

      I was having the same problem… you have to go to settings, graphics and turn the “use safe area in interface” to “ON”. Who in the world knows why this would be off, cause it messes everything up, but whatever, it fixed the problem. Enjoy!

    • Lisa

      In the inventory menu, the weapon and item description in the left hand corner of the screen is too far to the left cutting off half of the text. It is pretty much illegible because of this. I have adjusted my tv and xbox settings but to no avail. Any suggestions would be welcome!

      • http://segmentnext.com Zawad Iftikhar

        On PC, you can resolve it by ‘Disable Display Scaling on High DPI Settings’. They were supposed to release patches to fix this bug on console. Hopefully it will be released by the Microsoft soon.

      guess I’m lucky, after 3 hrs of gameplay no real issue, except 1 crash, but it’s manageable, the game looks pretty but I recommend a rental.
