Magicka 2 Crashes, Errors, Freezes, Connection, Performance, Controls and Fixes

By   /   May 27, 2015

The naughty wizards are back and they are ready to wreck havoc once again. Magicka 2 just got released on PC and I am sure fans of the first game must be eager to get their hands on it as soon as possible.

Although the game is not that resource hungry and is optimized for PC, there are some issues that still need to be addressed. Good news is that the support team is doing a great job in conveying the common issues to the developer.

However, until official patches come out, you can try finding the possible solution from the following list:

#1 Magicka 2 Paradox Account Issues
For the time being, there is an issue not allowing users to create Paradox accounts. If you too are having the problem, you can follow this link as a workaround to create the account. Developers are aware of the issue and they are working on a permanent fix.

#2 Magicka 2 – How to Play Without Internet Connection
Setting Steam to offline mode should do the trick for you and you will be able to play the game without internet connection.

#3 Magicka 2 – Game Crashes to Desktop After Logos
Some users have reported that the game is being crashed after intro logos if they try to play in the offline mode. I am not sure about the exact reason but as a workaround for now, you should try playing the game when you are online to bypass the crash.

#4 Magicka 2 – How to Customize Keys
If you are looking to customize your controls, following script can be useful for you:

;-This section is just a default key reference-
;q water
;r cold
;w heal
;e shield
;a lightning
;s arcane
;d earth
;f fire

;-This section overrides default keystrokes-
;”Q” imitates “D”
;”W” imitates “F”

;-This section toggles the script on and off-
;For when you need normal keystrokes
;I’ve set mine to “equals”

You can go to the link above for a detailed description on how to use it.

#5 Magicka 2 Sound Issues
First, try toggling your mode between stereo/mono. If that doesn’t fix the issue, try to update your sound card drivers. If you are on a laptop, make sure that your machine is plugged in.

#6 Magicka 2 Performance Issues
Your GPU drivers should be up to date and if you are using a laptop, make sure that the game is being run using the dedicated GPU (Nvidia/AMD) for better performance. Your machine should be plugged in for optimized performance.

#7 Magicka 2 – Game Freezes on the Startup
There are a few things you can try to resolve this issue (most probably connection related). First, make sure that your firewall is not blocking the game. If that’s not an issue, try disabling your IPv6 helper service.

Some users have reported that changing the default language and reverting it via Steam has solved the issue for them.
