Spec Ops The Line
Spec Ops: The Line has been released on PC and while it is all very fun to play single-player and multi-player, you might be disappointed by few of the recurring errors and bugs in the game.

In that situation, worry not my friend, we have you covered in this troubleshooting guide. Follow the workarounds listed below and fix these issues.

1# Spec Ops: The Line | Update Your Drivers/Fix Crashes and Random Errors
Before running the game and reporting any sort of errors, make sure that you have updated all of your drivers. First update your sound card drivers and after that, update your video card drivers. For Nvidia users, 301.42 are stable but for many users the 304.48 beta are working perfectly.

2# No Sound During Cutscenes
Update Your Graphic Drivers and Audio Drivers both. (Nvidia 301.42 if these are not working, then try the 304 beta drivers) RESTART!

3# Spec Ops: The Line Lags and Stuttering Fix (NVIDIA)
There is a special profile for the game on the 304.48 Beta drivers. Install that and let that profile control the game. Furthermore, try the config procedure mentioned below!

The game was working fine for the first time but now it lags a lot! For some odd reason, every time you quit the game – The config file gets corrupted/changed.

Go to C:\Users\xxxx\Documents\My Games\SpecOps-TheLine\SRGame\Config\ and delete the file ‘SREngine.ini’. Alternatively, a faster procedure is to download this file and run it whenever you’re going to run the game!

4# Spec Ops: The Line SLIT Fix (NVIDIA)
The 304.48 beta drivers have been confirmed to be working fine with the SLI on.

5# Black Bars on Some Resolutions
The game does not support a few resolutions properly (16:10 etc.)

6# Textures Are Missing, Load Slow
