10 Fixes for Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition Crashes, Freezes, Errors, Black screen, Lagging, Controller bug

1. The game goes to a black screen and freezes in Ambition Mode

Are you playing the game with Windows 8? Windows 8 tends to lead to more Dynasty 8 PC crashes, so try running it with Windows 7 (using Compatibility Mode in Windows 8) and you should not see any more black screens.

2. The game resolution is too small

You can simply go to the options menu and adjust the resolution settings there to match your desktop resolution settings to get a right-fit.

3. I’m having trouble using my Xbox 360 controller for the game

Make sure you remap the controls after switching to an Xbox 360 control. Otherwise you won’t be able to move the camera angles and adjust your view.

4. I seem to be having frame rate issues during game play

This is a common complaint. The game developers are currently working on hammering out the frame rate issues since it is a recent release. For the mean time you use try this driver update tool to make sure all your graphics drivers are updated and not causing the poor FPS.

5. I’m not seeing my Steam Achievements list

Try restarting the Steam client, then log in and you should be able to view your achievements.

6. I’m having trouble running the game and keeping a connection on my PC

Your computer may not be able to run the game at the settings level it’s set to. Try lowering some of the settings. It may lower some quality, but it will run the game smoother.

7. The intro will not play. The screen goes black

You might have an issue with your codec driver. Go to your Configurations and turn “Play Movie” to Off for a temporary fix.

8. I’m having trouble finding a Co-Op mode for my friends and I

As of now, only two people can play Co-Op mode, although more should be added soon.

9. The game is lagging pretty bad

This is a common problem with many PC games. First, check your Internet connection and try reconnecting and logging off and back into the game. If not, give the server a minute, because it may just be overloaded.

10. The game is crashing as soon as it starts to load

Another common problem with new PC games. Try restarting Steam, then launch the game again. If this does not work, restart your PC to flush out any leaked memory and try running the game again.

Because Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition is a new game for PC, there will certainly be more problems in the coming weeks.

  3. Joshua Gomez says:

    Also I want to comment if someone is getting a INFINITE LOADING SCREEN after hit Begin battle in Story Mode…

    • Hafidh Rendyanto says:

      Just open the task manager and in the processes tab (or in the detailed tab for some other computer), set the affinity of the “launch.exe” to ONLY 1 cores every time you want to load a map, after loaded, set the affinity to ALL cores again for better performance. it works.

  4. Psokid says:

    Anyway to play with two controllers at one time? I’m having troubling using two xbox 360 wired controllers to play co-op.

  5. Erik says:

    There is no online co-op on the pc version. Its split screen only. No idea why they chose to do this. I guess copy pasting steamworks code is hard. This irritated the hell out of me.

    of course like your web-site but you need to check the spelling
    on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with
    spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I’ll
    surely come back again.

    Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both
    reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worth it!

    arena of course, if that isn’t enough setup a badminton or volleyball net, possibly even an area for the
    game of horse shoes. “The event was really well attended, with more than 50 locals plus their children coming along over both days,” says Sarah Brunell, Sales Manager for Banner
    Homes. Children will likely be dare devils and desire
    to jump of things so you need to educate them.
