Fixing bags, errors, crashes and more for Call of Duty: WW2
Call of Duty: WW2 – error s2_sp64_ship.exe
If you’ve encountered with a s2_sp64_ship.exe error, you need to know, that the problem has been inflicted by your version of the OS Windows. Please, cheak out the system requirements for Call of Duty: WW2 and you will see, that the game requires a 64-bit OS. You can not run Call of Duty: WW2 on a 32-bit OS. Period.
Call of Duty: WW2 crashes
Some PC players complain about the problem, because of which Call of Duty: WW2 crashes on its launch. Make sure that you have the most recent drivers installed in your system for the video card. Call of Duty: WW2 is an AAA game, so for sure there must have been optimized drivers for both Nvidia and AMD. Also make sure that some unnecessary programs do not work for you in the background: some of them are quite capable of creating a conflict that leads to a takeoff.
Call of Duty: WW2 – a problem with multiple monitors
Some players with multiple monitors can not run Call of Duty: WW2 on the main monitor, so the game starts on the second monitor. The solution to the problem has long been found and it is quite simple. Go into the game and set the full screen mode.
Then press ALT + Enter to bring the game to window mode. After – drag the window from Call of Duty: WW2 to the main screen and press the ALT + Enter combination again to expand it to full screen. Once you do this, the game will now always be launched on the main screen.
Call of Duty: WW2 – low FPS/friezes/low performance
PC players are already accustomed to such a problem as low performance in games. PC games are incredibly difficult to optimize for all iron configurations, so they can be understood. To improve the frame rate and get rid of friezes in Call of Duty: WW2, you need to make sure that you have updated the drivers for your video card. If you have not done this for quite some time, then go to the Nvidia or AMD website, download and install the new drivers.
Another reason why you can get low performance in Call of Duty: WW2 is the use of an integrated graphics accelerator. We remind you that integrated video cards are not designed for such heavy tasks as games. Make sure that you are trying to run Call of Duty: WW2 on a discrete graphics accelerator.
We also advise you to pay special attention to your hard drive. Make sure that no heavy programs (and even more games) that can heavily load a hard disk are working on the background. It is its congestion and can serve as the cause of friezes and other brakes in Call of Duty: WW2.
Call of Duty: WW2 – flickering on a screen
Some of the players complained about the problem in the form of screen flicker when launching Call of Duty: WW2. This phenomenon is observed mainly in the single-player campaign of the game. Unfortunately, at this point in time, the cause and the reliable solution for this problem are not yet known. However, you can still do something while waiting for the patch from the developers.
Start the game, and then, as soon as you see the flicker on the screen, press the ALT + Enter key combination to go into the window mode. For some reason, full-screen mode in Call of Duty: WW2 causes a problem with flicker, and it can be solved simply by going into windowed mode.
Among other things, some players also encountered green flicker. This phenomenon is entirely due to the incorrectly displayed frequency of the screen update in Call of Duty: WW2. For example, your monitor only supports 59-60 Hz, and in the game settings you set 75 Hz. Go to the graphical settings of Call of Duty: WW2 and set the correct refresh rate.
Call of Duty: WW2 – no sound/sound problem
A huge number of players began to face the problem of the lack of any sound in the games. However, the problem is well-known and its solution will not take five minutes. So, you do not have a sound in Call of Duty: WW2 because in the settings of your sound device an incorrect sound format is set. If earlier this problem was solved by setting the format “24 bits, 48000 Hz (Studio recording)”, now this is not an option.
Right-click the speaker icon in the Start taskbar and select “Playback Devices”. Find your sound device and click it twice with the left mouse button. Go to the “Format” tab, click on the drop-down menu and select “24 bit, 96000 Hz (Studio recording)”. Save your settings and run Call of Duty: WW2. This time, the sound in the game will be present.
Call of Duty: WW2 – a missing .dll file
If you encounter an error in the absence of any dll file when you start Call of Duty: WW2, then you have a direct road to the folder Redist, which is located in the folder with the game. There you will probably find there installers of software such as DirectX, Microsoft Visual Studio C ++, .NET Framework, etc. etc.
If you have not installed them yet and you have some kind of error, then you can resolve it by simply installing all of the above software. If you see an error on the screen with no SteamAPI.dll file, then we recommend that you reinstall the Steam client, since this file is part of it.
Call of Duty: WW2 – black screen
Another problem that is observed in some players in Call of Duty: WW2 on the PC. This problem is again related to the full-screen mode. If you see a black screen when launching Call of Duty: WW2, then press ALT + Enter to go to windowed mode. In the window everything should work as it should.
After putting the game in the window mode, go to the graphical settings of Call of Duty: WW2 and set the resolution lower than it currently stands. The problem with the black screen can sometimes arise because of the extremely high resolution in the game, which is simply not supported by your monitor.
