In this article, we will discuss all of these problems, so that you can normally enjoy Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus without any inconvenience.


Solving various problems in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – black screen

If you have a black screen when you start Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, then you can try a couple of steps. First, make sure that you disabled the display of the overlay in the game in the Steam settings of the game. Secondly, try installing new drivers for your video card: the black screen, basically, is a consequence of the outdated video drivers.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – bug with full screen mode

If you observe any problems with full-screen mode, then you need to go to the graphical settings and turn off the option called Async Compute. Once you do this, problems with full-screen mode will be resolved.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus freezes

If you experience constant hanging or braking during the game, then you need to use the advice from the previous step – disabling the Async Compute option. Also, some users claim that the hang and the brake can get rid of the restart of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – crashes after changing a resolution

To fix the problem with departures after changing the resolution, which arise for users of video cards from Nvidia, you need to install the driver version 388.00 or 388.10. The network already has some reports that on these versions of the drivers Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus does not crash when changing permissions.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – low FPS / low performance

If you observe a low FPS in the game, even though your PC can provide sufficient performance, try the following:

  • Update your graphics drivers.
  • Make sure that your system does not work in power saving mode.
  • Start the game on a discrete graphics card, rather than on an integrated one.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – a bug with the mission in New Orleans

If all your tasks are missing from your log, you must enter this mission and then log out of it to return the tasks to the log. This is a fairly well-known bug and it is likely to be fixed in future updates.
