Sleeping Dogs Errors, Crashes, Freezes and Fixes

By   /   3 years ago


Sleeping Dogs has been released to masses today on PC along with Xbox 360 and PS3. While PC gamers enjoy the freedom of customization and HD texture packs, they also face problems sometimes in making the game work properly. These small issues can sometime ruin the experience of playing otherwise an exciting game.

In order to avoid these annoying issues, we have compiled this list of workarounds that should get you going until the game is patched.

#1 Can’t Download Sleeping Dogs (Steam) Due to An Encryption
Steam has recently implemented a new unpackig system which keep the files locked till the release time. If you can’t download the game, it might not have been released in your region just yet.

#2 Sleeping Dogs High Resolution Texture Pack
If you want more eye candy graphics in Sleeping Dogs for PC, you can give this high resolution pack a shot.

#3 Sleeping Dogs Keyboard ‘Up Key Moving Fast’ Fix
If your Up key on the keyboard seems like moving too fast, you can fix it with the following workaround:

  • Open Device Manager and then Human Interface Devices.
  • Disable all the devices under the heading (both HID and USB devices)
  • Launch the game again with your controller or any joystick being unplugged.

#4 Game World Disappears After Graphics Change
If changing the graphics settings resulted in disappearing World, change the settings back to the previous to resolve the issue. If that doesn’t help, restart the game.

#5 I am getting Corrupt Game Files on the Steam Version
Restart the Steam. It will update the game after the restart and problem will be fixed.

#6 How to Import Just Cause 2 Data in Sleeping Dogs
Square Enix promised a special outfit for the players who have played Just Cause 2. The outfit will give players boost in hijack ability allowing them to perform stylish stunt takeovers from greater distances.

If you still have a save for the 2010-released Avalanche Studios title, don’t delete it. Upon booting Sleeping Dogs and browsing Wei Shen’s safehouse wardrobe, you’ll find an outfit based on Rico Rodriguez’ trademark look. It will give players a “distinct boost” to their hijack ability, allowing them to perform stylish stunt takeovers from greater distances.
