Rise of the Triad Errors, Crashes, Freezes and Fixes

Regardless of whether you played the original Rise of the Triad or not, the reboot is quite a game and FPS fans are sure going to like it. The game got released recently on PC and as most of the other games do, it is suffering from the launch syndrome.

Small issues and problems happen at launch, and they should by no means considered as the judgement criteria for the game.

These issues, however, can mostly be solved using simple workarounds and fixes. If you are looking for a solution related to your problem, the following troubleshooting guide will serve the purpose of assistance for you.

Note: There has been a couple of patches released by the developer that fixed various bugs and issues. So, it’s highly recommended that you keep your launcher up-to-date.

#1 Rise of the Triad – Mouse Acceleration Fix
You can smoother your mouse by using the simple procedure:

  • First, you need to go find the input file which is usually located at Users/yourname/mydocuments/mygames/riseofthetriad/rottgame/config/rottinput.
  • Open the file in a text editor and find and replace the following lines in it:
[Engine.PlayerInput] LookRightScale=0.000000

Bindings=(Name=”MouseX”,Command=”Count bXAxis | Axis aMouseX Speed=2.0″)
Bindings=(Name=”MouseY”,Command=”Count bYAxis | Axis aMouseY Speed=2.0″)

Bindings=(Name=”LookUp”,Command=”Axis aLookUp Speed=+25.0 AbsoluteAxis=0″)
Bindings=(Name=”LookDown”,Command=”Axis aLookUp Speed=-25.0 AbsoluteAxis=0″)

Bindings=(Name=”GBA_TurnLeft”,Command=”Axis aBaseX Speed=-40.0 AbsoluteAxis=0″)
Bindings=(Name=”GBA_TurnRight”,Command=”Axis aBaseX Speed=+40.0 AbsoluteAxis=0″)

This should make the experience smoother as it does in most of the Unreal based games.

#2 Rise of the Triad – Performance Boost
If you are an AMD user and looking to get extra frames, you should try the latest beta drivers launched by AMD.

#3 Rise of the Triad – How to Remove FPS Cap
If you are unhappy with the default FPS cap remover, you can do the following to make the experience better:

  • First off, go to the same config folder (Users/yourname/mydocuments/mygames/riseofthetriad/rottgame/config/) but this time, you need to open the engine file.
  • Find the following values in the file:


You should set the above mentioned values to zero for both max and min.

#4 Rise of the Triad – Alternate Mouse Fix
If the solution mentioned in #1 doesn’t do the trick for you, you can try this one. First off, in the same config folder, open the engine file using a text editor. After the text editor is opened, find the following line:


You need to set this line to false.

#5 Rise of the Triad Error – “Incorrect Query, please Contact Support
This is because the sign-up doesn’t allow any complex letters like “Ö”. So, if you use simple letters, the error won’t pop-up.

#6 Rise of the Triad – IP Error While Logging In
If you are getting this error, you should try log in using your name instead of the email. This has resolved the problem for many users and hopefully, you will get fixed too.

#7 Rise of the Triad – Game Keeps on Minimizing
If that’s the problem for you, you should run the game in windowed mode by pressing “Alt+Enter”. The problem should go away with the latest patch you install.

#8 Rise of the Triad – Error Establishing a Database Connection
This is not a bug and you will come across this error when the servers are offline. There is no reason to worry about as servers sometimes stop responding due to maintenance or a quick restart.

#9 Rise of the Triad – Games Crashes while Joining Multiplayer
If the game is being crashed continuously, I will recommend that you restart your Steam. This should resolve the problem. Furthermore, make sure that your firewall/security tool isn’t blocking the game.
