Conan Exiles Errors, Crashes, Bugs, Black Screen, Server, Key Bindings and Fixes
The name alone, “Conan the Barbarian” is sufficient to sell any game. However, Funcom wanted to do it right by making an open world RPG. After the delay, the early access of the game is available on Steam and it seems to have draw attention of a lot of gamers.
Since the game is in early access phase, expect a lot of bugs, errors, crashes and other related problems. However, the support team is quite active and they are working hard to find the workarounds and fixes as soon as possible. Ofcourse, there will also be a continuous stream of updates until the game is polished enough and is ready to be launched.
If you are one of those who can’t bear a buggy product, stay away for the time being however, if you are a fan of Conan and admire RPGs, you should definitely try this out.
While we wait for official updates, we have shortlisted the common issues being faced by the users and their possible fixes. Feel free to add anything we might have missed as the game has just been released in early access.
Conan Exiles Errors Troubleshooting, Bugs, Crashes and Fixes
#1 Conan Exiles – The Game Does Not Start
If you try to launch the game and nothing happens, there are a few things you could try to make it work.
- First, make sure that there are no pending updates for your operating system.
- The game requires Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 to run properly so make sure that you have that. If not, you can download it from here.
- If you are using a laptop, make sure that the game is not using the integrated GPU.
#2 Conan Exiles – Game Stuck After Character Creation
If your game is stuck after you have created a character, you might need to uninstall some third party codecs like K-lite. Reboot your PC after that and it should work fine. Some players have even reported that the by installing this windows media player pack, they were able to solve the issue.
#3 Internet Connection Lost In Server Browser
According to some reports, players loose internet connection while they are browsing the server browser. If that’s the case with you, you should try reducing the ping limit via Steam. You can do that from View -> Settings -> In-Game -> In-Game server browse: Max pings/minute.
#4 Conan Exiles Key Bindings Issue
If the in-game settings aren’t working for you, try using the config file of the game. To be on the safe side, make the backup of the config file first. The file you are looking for is “DefaultInput.ini” that can be found in game’s directory in the config folder. You can open the file using a notepad editor.
You should find the commands that say “ActionMappings” and “AxisMappings”. Former is for action controls while the later is for movement controls. Here you can add the values of your liking. Do not forget to save the changes once you exit.
#5 Conan Exiles Black Screen Fix
Make sure that your system’s resolution is same that of your game and your monitor supports that resolution. You can change the resolution from the config file in the config folder. If that’s not the issue, just try to restart the game as it’s still in early access and random stuff is bound to happen.
#6 Conan Exiles Server List Issue
If you can’t see any servers in the browser, make sure that you have selected the proper filter. If that doesn’t work, try using the steam server list.
#7 Conan Exiles Server Admin Access Issue
If you can’t access the admin via command line, it’s because you haven’t set the admin password in the server config file (“\DefaultServerSettings.ini”). The config file can be found in the config folder.
#8 Conan Exiles Random Bugs
You might come across some random bugs during the gameplay, the first thing you should do is logout and try to do it again. Servers of Conan Exiles are not the best condition right now so this basic troubleshooting can be your only chance if you want to keep playing.
