The Wolf Among Us Crashes, Errors, Freezes and Fixes


After the great success of The Walking Dead, Telltale is continuing the action-adventure touch with “The Wolf Among Us.”

The episodic series just got released on PC, and fans are already going crazy about it. Although, the game is a well-polished product but there are some minor issues/bugs being reported by users.

Some of these issues can be resolved by using simple workarounds and fixes so if you are looking for a solution to a problem related to the game, you can browse through the following troubleshooting guide.

#1 The Wolf Among Us – Cloud Support Not Working
Telltale’s games don’t really get along with Steam’s cloud support. This time, the options hasn’t been made available. So if the cloud service isn’t saving your game, that’s normal and you will have to stay contented with the save files withing your PC.

#2 The Wolf Among Us – The Game not being Saved at All
Some users are reporting that their game is not being saved at all or it keeps on crashing. One reason can be due to the presence of non English characters in your game’s folder.

If your native language is something other than English, I will recommend that you change the titles of all the folders in English language. This should fix the problem for you.

#3 The Wolf Among Us – Black Screen Fix
If you are hearing the sounds in the background but it’s only a black screen you can see, I will recommend that your screen’s resolution and refresh rates should be matched.

In other words, try lowering down the resolution and refresh rate until the black screen goes away.

If that doesn’t work for you, try launching the game in Windows Vista compatibility mode. Run the game as admin and it may well fix the issue for you. It goes without saying that your drivers should be up to date.

#4 The Wolf Among Us – The Game Crashes to Desktop
First, I will recommend that you try out the fix mentioned in #3. If that doesn’t help, you should try unplugging your controller. Also make sure that you are not running any third party application in the background that could interfere with the game’s normal working.

#5 The Wold Among Us – “.DLL” Crash Fix
You will be getting the crash related to DINPUT8.DLL file. If that’s the case, you should try re-installing the latest version of directx. You can also choose to directly download the files from the web but that is not a safe method so be cautious about that.

#6 The Wolf Among Us – Controls Switch Fix
If your game keeps on switching between your controller and mouse/keyboard then you should first quit the game. Before you re-launch it, unplug the controller and plug it in a different port.

#7 The Wolf Among Us – Windows 8 Crash Fix
If you can’t wait long for the developers to come up with an official fix related to controller, you can try out this fix that also worked with The Walking Dead.

#8 The Wolf Among Us – Fraps Crash fix
There are chances that you may experience crashes while recording the footage with Fraps. In that case, you should start recording after clicking Episode 1 in the game. If you want the start menu to be recorded, you can record it first and then pause it till you start the episode.
