Here we will compile a list of errors and issues that players have been experiencing while playing the game and will also provide you with their fixes and workarounds so that you can play the game.
Ring of Elysium Black Screen, Low FPS And Fixes
Battle Royale skyrocketed to popularity with the launch PUBG which was followed by Fortnite. Since then there have been a ton of battle royale games including the Ring of Elysium.
The following are the errors and issues that players have been experiencing along with their possible fixes and workarounds.
Players have reported that there is a problem with the game’s resolution as the game isn’t using the system’s default resolution.
The solution to this problem is simple. Close the game and to the game’s install directory “Steam\steamapps\common\Ring of Elysium”.
Now look for “Europa_Client.exe” and right-click on it and select properties. Now select the Compatibility tab and click on “Change High DPI Settings“. Now check “Override High DPI Scaling Behavior” and from the drop-down menu select “Application”.
Now start the game and the resolution should be fixed.
Mouse Not Working
Some players have reported that their mouse doesn’t work in the game. To fix this issue, create a text file with the following text:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Ring of Elysium\Europa_Client.exe” -steam –
Now save the text file in “.bat” format and start Steam and then run the file you just created. Your mouse should be working in the game now.
Steam API Init Failed Fix
This is another one of the errors that PC players of Ring of Elysium are experiencing. However, the fix is quite simple.
The reason why this error is popping up is probably due to the Windows account you are using doesn’t have administrative access. All you have to do is switch to your Windows account with “Administrative Access” and the issue will be resolved.
Another reason for “Steam API Init Failed” error might be your anti-virus or Windows Defender. Either disable your anti-virus or make an exception for Steam in your anti-virus should resolve this issue.
Error 193 Unable To Find eugfesdkwrapper.dll Fix
Missing .dll files is a common issue for PC games and the Ring of Elysium is not different as players have reported that they are experiencing “Error 193 Unable To Find eugfesdkwrapper.dll” while trying to play the game.
The fix is quite easy. The reason why this error is popping up is because the said .dll file is either missing or corrupted. Just download Microsoft .Net Framework and Visual C++ Redistributable and install/repair them. This will fix the Error 193 for you.
You can also download the “eugfesdkwrapper.dll” manually and place it in the game’s install directory. However, we wouldn’t recommend this method as this will probably put your system at risk.
Green Screen Fix
This issue can be resolved by playing the game in windowed mode. However, to permanently fix this issue open the Nvidia Control Panel and select “Change Resolution” under “Display”.
Here check the “Use Nvidia Color Setting” and select the “Highest (32-Bit)” for Desktop Color depth. This will fix the Green Screen issue for you.
Crash At Launch Fix
Players have reported that they are experiencing a crash at launch which is followed up with an error message. There are a couple of things you can try to fix this issue.
First is to make an exception of the game’s exe file in your anti-virus or Windows Defender as they might be mistaking it for a Trojan virus.
Another thing you can try is to turn off all of the third-party software like MSI Afterburner RivaTurner Statics ServerTeamviewer and more. This should fix crash at launch issue for the game.
Black Screen Fix
This is another one of the common PC game issues and the Ring of Elysium is no exception as players have reported that when they start the game they only see a black screen while they can hear the music in the background.
To fix this issue, start the game and when the black screen appears press “ALT + Enter” and the game will go into Windowed mode and you will start to display.
Now go to the video settings and change the game’s resolution to your monitor’s native resolution and you will be able to play the game in Fullscreen mode.
If this doesn’t fix it for you then your GPU driver might be at fault over here. Update your GPU drivers if you haven’t already and the issue should resolve.
Audio Buzzing, Audio Stuttering Fix
Some players have reported that while the game runs at 60 FPS but the audio stutters throughout the game.
The fix for audio stuttering is simple. Open Playback devices through Sounds and select your default audio device and click properties. Go to the “Advanced” tab and here there will be multiple options on the list. You will have to do a bit of trial and error with each option.
Another audio issue that players have reported is that the surround sound isn’t working properly as the game is missing audio at a certain angle.
The issue might be with the wrong audio channel being set for your headphone or speakers. Open Playback devices and select your default audio device and press configure on the bottom left.
Select the right channel for your audio device and press next. Once you are done with this, the audio issue should be fixed for your Surround headphones or speaker issues.
Stuttering, Low FPS Fix
With so many PC configurations out there, there are bound to be performance issues with the PC version of Ring of Elysium.
Here are a few things that you can try to improve the game’s FPS on PC and fix stuttering. First, make sure you are using latest drivers for your GPU as they bring game-specific optimizations.
Also, make sure there is no background process running that is using too much of your CPU and HDD and if there is then terminate it.
Now to fix Low FPS in the game, go to the game’s install directory “Steam\steamapps\common\Ring of Elysium” or you can get there by opening steam, right-click on the game and select “Properties” and go to the local files tab and click view local files.
Once you are in the game’s install directory, look for “Europa_Client.exe”. Right click on it and select properties and go to the compatibility tab and check “Disable Fullscreen Optimizations“. This should give you a small FPS boost and should also rid you of the stuttering.
Another thing you can try if you own a GTX 10 series GPU is open Nvidia Control Panel and select Manage 3D Settings. Go to “Program settings” and select the game from the drop-down list.
Now go through the options looking for V-sync and set it to “Fast“. This will potentially give you a performance boost if your GPU and CPU have enough headroom to provide it and potentially could result in a steady 60 FPS experience.
