Space Marine Laptop Performance Fix
If you are running the game on your Laptop, make sure you have updated the video card drivers or you may experience performance drops.
Stuck on Loading Screen ?
This issue has been resolved for most of the people by just updated their system drivers – graphics card. In your Nvidia Control panel make sure all graphic settings are set to application controlled. If the issue isn’t resolved, try verifying the game cache. Make sure your internet security software is not blocking the executable so add that to exceptions and run your antivirus or whatever in-game mode.

Re-install and leave the screen resolution as is. It may help solve the issue, if it doesn’t, verify the game cache.
Slow Cut-scenes and Black Screen Afterwards
Ranks/Stats Reset When You Disconnect
It is a bug on Steam’s end and is associated with how Steam is tracking your progress. Developers are looking into the issue and it will most likely be fixed in next patch. You can either turn off Steam Cloud or enable it Globally. You should see this setting under Steam -> Setting.
Low FPS and Lag When Playing Multiplayer
You can play the singleplayer mode smoothly but multiplayer mode lags and there is a random drop in frame rates. Another thing that you can try on PC, is setting the priority to High. Right click on spacemarine.exe in task manager and set priority to High. It may sound a bit odd but unplugging any USB controller may help the cause.

This issue is associated with Steam, try enabling the Steam Cloud and see if it helps.

The game won’t recognize any generic USB controller. The workaround to get the controller recognized is to use any Xbox 360 emulator that are available online.
Space Marine Crashes When Loading Campaign
Verify the game cache. Make sure your video cards are up-to-date. If you still can’t launch the game, try to free the space in your drive the game is installed.
