The question of how to fix Diablo II Resurrected crashes has been on the minds of many a player. After all, the game is still technically in beta, so some growing pains are to be expected. That said, such a platitude does precisely jack squat to the people that are experiencing these crashes. So, with all of that said, we’re gonna give you some tips on how to avoid future crashes in this guide.
How to Fix Diablo II Resurrected Crashes
To fix the Diablo II Resurrected crashes, there are several steps you should go through. First of all, check whether your computer meets the minimum requirements to play the game in the first place. If not, well, you’re gonna experience a lot of crashes, and the only remedy is to upgrade your setup. Here’s a quick rundown of the minimum requirements for Diablo 2 Resurrected.
- OS – Windows 10
- Processor – Intel Core i3-3250/AMD FX-4350
- Video – Nvidia GTX 660/AMD Radeon HD 7850
- Memory – 8 GB RAM
If all is well on that front, the next step is to update all your drivers to the latest version. If you have older drivers, that might cause compatibility issues that cause crashes. Also, close background apps in case they’re causing software conflicts, and turn off any overlays you might have on. While we’re at it, you might want to stop overclocking, because that too can cause the game to crash.
More “serious” Diablo II Resurrected crashes fixes include scanning and repairing game files and running the game as an administrator. To do the former, select the game from the Battle.net launcher. Select Options in the top left, then click “Scan and Repair.” Next, click “Begin Scan” and wait for it to finish. Start the game again to see whether it works now.
To run the game as an administrator, head into the Diablo 2 Resurrected installation folder and right-click the .exe file. Click Properties and select the Compatibility tab. Tick “Run this program as an administrator” and “Disable fullscreen optimizations,” then click OK to save changes. Try running the game again.
If none of these fixes work, then it’s time to contact Blizzard’s customer support. Good luck. By the way if you know of any other potential fix for the crashes, let us know in the comments.
