Can You Center Outer Worlds Crosshair on PC?

As far as we can tell, you can’t center the crosshair in Outer Worlds on PC. I mean, not that you can do it on console, either, but people playing on PC have been kicking up the most dust about it. People have even been diving deep into the game files, trying to figure out if they can have the crosshair on the center of the screen. Nothing seems to work. You can go into the gameusersettings.ini in the files and mess around with the Aiming Reticle options if you want. Sure, you can turn the crosshair off completely for extra realism, if you want. Doesn’t look like there’s any way to center it, though. In case you have figured out a way, please leave your solution in the comments.

Game Crashing On Launch – How to Fix Outer Worlds Error?

If Outer Worlds is crashing for you on launch, there are several avenues that you might want to explore. First off, you should download the latest Windows 10 Media Feature Pack. You can find it on the Microsoft website here. Also, make sure that all your graphics card drivers are up-to-date. If that doesn’t work, but you do manage to get far enough to enter the Options menu, try lowering your Graphics settings. This has worked for some people. If not, well, here’s to hoping it gets fixed soon. Also, if you have other suggestions, the comment section is below. Oh, side-note: this doesn’t seem to be happening on the Epic Store, just via Game Pass.

Outer Worlds Error 0x803F8001 on Microsoft Game Pass – How to Solve?

To solve Error 0x803F8001 in Outer Worlds on Microsoft Game Pass, all you have to do is switch your PC region to United States. Yes, really.

Try playing Outer Worlds again, and it should be working now. It’s a strange fix, but it has worked for a number of people.

If this doesn’t work, though, things get annoying. You’ll have to contact support and open a ticket, and then eventually reset your Microsoft Store account. A long and arduous process, to be sure. Hopefully, there’ll be some other fix soon. In the meantime, try switching your PC region to the US first. Just don’t forget to toggle it back to your original settings when you’re done.

Outer Worlds Can’t Download on PC Game Pass Solution

Something Happened on Our End & Try Again Later Errors in Outer Worlds

If you’re getting the Try Again Later or Something Happened on Our End error messages when trying to download the game via Game Pass, then, I’m sad to say, there’s nothing you can do on your end. The error itself tells you as much. The most likely reason for this happening is that there’s a rush of people trying to download Outer Worlds along with you, and the servers are buckling under pressure. The only thing you can do is, well, try again later. Seeing as how most people have already downloaded it, the problem is likely gone by now.

How To Fix Blurry Game in Outer Worlds PC Version?

To fix Outer Worlds looking blurry on PC, you can try to turn Visual Effects to Low in the Options. Actually, you might as well try with Medium first and then, if the blurriness persists, switch it to Low. This should get rid of all those graphical features that we know and love and never really asked for, like Chromatic Aberration.

Alternatively, if you happen to be using an Nvidia card, you can attempt to mess around with the options for the game in the settings in the Nvidia Control Panel. Of course, this might not work either. The fact of the matter is that Outer Worlds really doesn’t offer plenty graphical options, so you don’t really have a lot of wiggle room. If you have a different fix, do leave it in the comments, and we’ll add it here.
