Trine 3 Errors, Crashes, Exceptions, Tweaks, FPS Unlock and Fixes

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is out of Early Access and is available on Microsoft Windows – Linux and Mac versions expected later this year. Similar to its predecessors, Trine3: The Artifacts of Power supports online and local co-op and is quite well optimized and beatiful to see.

Still there are some minor issues and errors which pop-up here and there, but nothing that you cannot fix with a couple of easy-to-follow solutions.

Trine 3 – Crashes and Unhandled Exception
First of all, you need to ensure that your rig meets the minimum system requirements which are:

  • OS: (64-bit / 32-bit) Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista
  • Processor: Intel 1.8 GHz CPU dual-core. AMD 2.0 GHz dual-core
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 260 / Radeon HD 4000 Series / Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • DirectX: Version 10
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Hard Drive: 6 GB available space

Additional Notes: Highest graphics detail levels are only available in 64-bit OS

If you meet the system requirements, but are unable to start the game, right-click Trine3: The Artifacts of Power in Steam Library and select Properties>. Open Local Files and select Verify Integrity of Game Cache.

You can also press Window Key + R and type in %appdate%/Trine3 and delete options.txt which should revert your game to original settings. Moreover, make sure that you are using updated drivers and everything.

To fix the issue, you need to press F8 while in the game and type in ‘inputModule:setOSCursorVisible(false)’ without quotes which should fix the issue at hand.

Trine 3 – Unlocking Frame Rates
By default, there is a limit of 100 frames per second with Vsync turned off. However, if you wish to unlock frames, enter the following command in run:


Once this is done, replace ‘true’ with ‘false’ without quotes:

First of all, you need to enter the following command in the run command of your computer:


Once this is done, you will be able to disable bloom by typing in ‘false’ instead of ‘true’ in setOption(renderingModule, “ShowGlow”, true).

Similary, you can turn off FXAA by changing setOption(renderingModule, “PostProcessAntiAliasing”, true).

Lastly, in order to change SSAA value, you need to see setOption(renderingModule, “AntiAliasSamples”, 0) and place your desired value in place of ‘0’ without quotes.
