Sea Of Thieves Errors, Crases And Fixes
Sea of Thieves is an action-adventure MMO developed by Rare exclusively for PC and Xbox One. The following are the issues and errors that PC players have been experiencing along with their possible fixes and workarounds so that you can play the game without any problem.
Crash On Startup
Sea of Thieves players have been experiencing an unusual issue which is that the game crashes as soon it starts up. Now the solution to this problem is also an unusual one and is sort of a temporary workaround than being a full solution.
To make this issue go away, all you have to do is uninstall “Xbox Insider Hub” and reinstall. Once that is done start the game and the issue should resolve. However, this issue could potentially pop up again and the solution remains the same.
Low FPS On High-End Systems, Stuttering, Bad Performance
Sea of Thieves is designed to be able to run on as low-end PCs as possible, however, running the game on low-end systems is not the issue here as some have reported that the game’s frame-rate drops significantly while running it on a high-end GPU like GTX 970.
According to users, the game’s FPS drops significantly while running it on 1080p resolution and if the resolution is dropped to 900p, it runs above 60 FPS.
The solution to this issue is simple. First, for Nvidia GPU users who have been experiencing this issue need to turn on Fast-sync from the “Nvidia Control Panel” for the game and the issue should resolve.
To enable Fast-sync, which available for GTX 900 and GTX 10 series GPUs, open up the Nvidia Control Panel, select “Manage 3D settings” and then select “Program Settings”. Here will be a list of games, find Sea On Thieves and select it and in the options select “Fast” for V-sync and press apply.
As for AMD GPU owners and those Nvidia GPU owners who don’t have the option for Fast-sync, they will have to turn off the v-sync altogether in order to run Sea Of Thieves smoothly on their system.
Other things you can do to improve the game’s performance, is update GPU drivers to the latest versions and make sure no unnecessary program is running in the background that might cost you performance in-game.
