Dishonored Errors, Crashes, Freezes, FOV, FPS, Stuttering and Performance Fixes

By   /   3 years ago


Dishonored is a blend of many tastes, so I don’t think that you will find many reasons to dislike
it. The game got released in US today (It will be released a few days later in Europe) and
those who were waiting for it eagerly are all pumped up to get their hands dirty.

Unfortunately, some of them might not have been able to play the game due to unusual errors, crashes, freezes or other game breaking issues.

If that’s the case, refer to our list of workaround to resolve these issues. If you can’t find what you are looking for, comment and we will help out!

#1 Dishonored – Poor FPS Performance
If you are using SLi/Crossfire and experiencing poor FPS, I will recommend that you turn it off to see the difference.

#2 Dishonored – Poor Performance / Stuttering
This issue may well be related to Vsync. Try turning it off and you will be able to observe a considerable boost in performance. Disabling the SLi/Crossfire can also resolve the issue for you.

#3 Dishonored – Game Unavailable/Corrupt game files Error
You just need to restart Steam and log back in to resolve the issue.

#4 Dishonored – How to Remove Intro Logos
If you are annoyed by the intro logos which appear every time you launch the game; this is what you can do to get rid of them:

Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dishonored\Dishonored Game\Movies and delete, move or rename the following:

  • Legal.bik
  • LogoArkane.bik
  • LogoBethesda.bik
  • UE3_logo.bik
  • ZenimaxLegal.bik
  • ZenimaxLegalIFR.bik

#5 Dishonored Crashes – Stop Responding
If you haven’t been able to launch the game and are experiencing constant crashes on launching the game, right click on in Steam, go to properties, and click on ‘set launch options’.

In there, enter: ‘windowed’ without the quotation marks. Change the settings to what your PC can easily run and restart.

#6 Dishonored FOV Fix
If you don’t like Dishonored’s Field of View settings, you can change them by following the instructions here.

#7 Dishonored – Settings Don’t Get Saved
All right, if you can’t manage to save the settings in Dishonored and they keep on changing every time you start the game, you can try the following work around:

  • After changing the in-game settings, minimize the game to windows (Alt+Tab).
  • Now, you need to find the .ini and .inf files for Dishonored and mark them as read-only.

This can make your settings to stick permanently.
