Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Errors, Crashes And Fixes

Following are the Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet errors and issues that players have been experiencing along with their possible fix or workaround so that you can play the game without any problems.

Green Screen Flickering
Some PC players have reported that they have been experiencing Green screen flickering while playing the game in fullscreen. The solution to this issue is simple, all you have to do is open up the Nvidia Control Panel and select “Change Resolution” under “Display”.

Here you need to check the “Use Nvidia Color Setting” and select the “Highest (32-Bit)” and hit apply. Start the game and play the game in fullscreen and the issue will not bother you anymore.

Game Stuck in Advanced Options Menu For Ultrawide Monitors
This is another of Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet errors that PC players have been experiencing probably because the game currently has no support for Ultrawide monitors.

To fix this issue, you first need to locate the config file and navigate to “C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local” and here you will find folder “SAOFB”.

Delete this folder which contains the config file and disable Steam Cloud sync for the game. Now run the game and change the aspect ratio from to 16:9 and you should not get stuck in the options menu.

Fatal Error Fix
Fatal Error is one of the issues and errors that the PC players have been experiencing. There are a few ways in which you can resolve this issue. The first thing you can do is try another version of GPU driver.

If you are using the latest driver then downgrade to a previous one or if you are using an old one then try one of the recent drivers for your GPU and the Fatal Error issue should resolve.

Also, run the game as an administrator which can potentially resolve the Fatal Error. Another thing you can try to fix this issues is to lower all the graphical setting and turn off V-sync.

Just play the game through the tutorial and once you get to save game option, exit the game and restart it. Now you will be able to turn on all the graphical settings to the max without the fear of the Fatal Error. These workarounds should resolve the Fatal Error issue for you.

EasyAntiCheat Error Fix
This is another one of the Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet errors that players have been experiencing which displays the message “Createfile failed with 32”.

You can try to disable the EasyAntiCheat, however, this can potentially stop you from playing the game. What you need to do is either make an exception for the EAC in your anti-virus or just disable your anti-virus as it is possibly hindering the EasyAntiCheat from working properly which causes this error to prompt.

Infinite Loading At Startup
Some players have reported that the game crashed while playing and the next time they start the game, it remains stuck at infinite loading screen. The solution to this problem is easy. Just go to C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local and delete the “SAOFB” folder.

This delete all the configurations and save files for the game but, you will get your saves back from the Steam Cloud sync. Just run the game and you should be good to go.

Audio Issues
Some players have reported that audio for the game is not right as there is no sound for gun firing but when it hits the target there is some sound.

The issue potentially could be because of Windows setting your sound at 5.1 or 7.1 despite you having a 2.1 stereo sound system. Just go to Playback devices and select “Configure”, here select stereo and press next and the issue should resolve. This should resolve the issue.

Audio stuttering is another issue that Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet players have been experiencing. To fix this issue, go to Playback Devices by right-clicking the audio icon in the bottom right of your display and select your default devices which in most cases will be “Speakers”.

Open up properties and go the “Advanced Tab” and here you will see a drop-down menu. Here you will have to do a trial and error as there are many options and one of the options should resolve the audio stuttering and audio buzzing issue.

FPS Drops, Low FPS Fix
Optimization is an issue with PC games due to so many different configurations each system has different performance. Some users have reported random FPS drops while playing the game while running it on GTX 1080.

The issue is with the game’s graphical settings, try turning off the Ambient Occlusion as it is the most taxing graphical feature. Disabling it should make the game run at 60 FPS but, it is a huge graphical compromise. You can also try turning down other graphical settings but that is trial and error that you will have to do yourself.

You can also try to update your GPU drivers if you haven’t already to the latest version as older drivers might not be compatible with the game.

Black Screen Fix
Black Screen is a commonly occurring issue in PC games and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet is no exception. To fix this issue, start the game and you will see the black screen, just press “ALT + Enter” and the game will go into windowed mode.

Go to video settings and change the game’s resolution to your monitor’s native resolution and now you can play the game in fullscreen if you want.

Outdated GPU driver can be a potential cause of a Black Screen and if the above fix doesn’t work for you then try updating to the latest GPU driver and the issue should resolve.
