Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition is the PC version of the game. It has been released only hours ago, but players are already reporting problems like crashes, errors and performance issues. Some of them can be fixed with simple tweaks and workarounds, while others are going to have to be patched. Here’s a list of all the Final Fantasy XV PC errors & problems we’ve heard reports of.
Note: We’re going to keep updating this article with new problems and solutions as they keep popping up (as they surely will). Stay tuned.
Black & white screen flashes in FFXV PC
Some players have been reporting the screen periodically flashing black or white while playing FFXV Windows Edition. This is most probably a graphics driver issue. If you don’t have the latest drivers, update immediately. If you do have the newest GPU driver, you could try rolling back. These game-specific driver editions can be a bit buggy, and returning to a previous version might be of help.
Files disappear after downloading the FFXV Steam preload
A number of players who’ve preordered the game have tried to preload it – to download the game’s files before it’s live, so they can start playing as soon as it’s released. When the download is finished, some of them have noticed the files are nowhere to be found. The hard drive space allocated to them was still used up, but the files weren’t there. It turns out this has to do with the way Steam handles preloads – the files are actually there, but they’re hidden from you. It was probably done to stop you from trying anything fishy. Everyone knows you can’t be trusted.
