WWE 2K17 PC Errors, Crashes, FPS, Character Entrance, Performance and Fixes

WWE 2K17 received mixed reviews on consoles and the game is ready for PC. Overall, the port looks fine apart from some minor issues that can be expected from a new PC release. I am assuming that if you are a PC gamer and a wrestling fan, you must have got the game already.

So if you are facing any troubleshooting issues, we have shortlisted the common issues being face by the game and their possible fixes.

WWE 2K17 Errors, FPS, Performance and Fixes

#1 WWE 2K17 PC Performance Issues
First thing you need to do if you are facing performance issues is update your GPU drivers. You can check out bout Nvidia and AMD official websites for the latest updates. Also, if you are running any third party applications in the background, try shutting them down.

Needless to say that you can always tone down graphics settings to get a performance boost.

#2 WWE 2K17 Low FPS Fix
If you are using a laptop and getting low FPS than expected, you should make sure that your game is being run using the dedicated (Nvidia/AMD) GPU rather than the integrated one. You can use control panel of your card to change the settings.

#3 WWE 2K17 Low FPS During Character Entrance
Character entrances are quite graphics intensive with a lot of lighting around so the first suggestion is that you tone down the graphics settings a bit. If that doesn’t solve the issue, you can edit your config.ini file (can be found in game’s directory) to solve the issue.

Open the file using a notepad editor and where it says simple_lighting, set it to on. You should set audience_tessellation to off as this parameter needs a lot of resources. You can also alter the related graphics attributes to get the possible output. However, it’s recommended that you make a default backup of config file if anything goes wrong.

#4 WWE 2K17 Graphics Device Removed Error
If you are getting this error, make sure that your drivers are up to date and you are running the game using the dedicated GPU and not the integrated one.

#5 WWE 2K17 Slowmotion Lag Fix
Some users have reported that by turning simple_lighting on in the config file can fix this issue. So yes, it’s worth of a shot. You can find the config file in your game’s folder and it can be opened using notepad.
