1# Stuttering Fix
If you are experiencing severe stuttering when playing Lord of the Rings: War in the North on PC, update your drivers and if that doesn’t work, roll-back the updated drivers to some previous stable version. It’s a driver issue so it should be fixed by doing just that.

2# Can’t Save Game in Coop ?
You can’t save a coop game if your coop partner is lagging behind you in-game progress – I mean if you are ahead of em in the single-player progress so you just can’t save the game for both because you aren’t at the same level.

Let your coop partner host the game to fix this issue. You may start from the level you have played, but atleast progress will be saved.

4# War in the North Crashes On Exit ?

5# Audio Stuttering Fix
Run the game in 44k Stereo settings. You can change your sound settings by opening Sound Manager (Say Realtek). Go to the properties of your sound device and change the option in advanced settings.

6# Inventory Management – Upgrading AI Characters
It’s a waste of resources and equipment since they take care of themselves and auto-loot the same chests you loot. So, in a way they upgrade their gear and equipment as you progress.

7# In-game Map Black Boxes
These boxes on in-game map show points of interests which you will visit later in the game.

8# How To Reset Your Skill Tree ?
Go to Sarn Ford, the vendor. It Will cost you around 12,000 silver.

9# War in the North Freezes
If you are experiencing random freezes that force you to exit the game, you may want to check the RAM available to your PC when you play the game. Trick is to close all the applications and then monitor the graph on Task Manager.

If it is jumping to 100% and all of your RAM is being used when you run the game, it may be causing your PC to freeze when it runs out of memory. It can be due to a bad driver among other things, so update your drivers or try rolling back your drivers to a more suitable version to fix the issue.

10# No Games are Found – Coop
Try adding War in the North to your firewall exceptions list or just disable all your security programs and re-run the game.

11# War In The North Random Crashes and Lag
Update your drivers to fix the issue.

12# Crash To Desktop, Can’t Start The Game
If your game crashes to desktop when you try to start the game – first verify the integrity of the game cache in Steam then run Steam as administrator and make sure your firewall/antivirus is not blocking War in the North.

If you face any other issues, let us know in comments and we will try to help you out.
