Disable Xbox Game Bar

It has been a while since Microsoft introduced the Xbox Game Bar feature on Windows 10. Sadly, it still causes fps drops in some games. I am not sure if your lag in Rogue Company has anything to do with the game bar or not, but it is better to keep it off. Here is how to do it:

  1. Open Windows 10 Settings menu
  2. Click on Gaming
  3. Select Xbox Game Bar from the left sidebar
  4. Turn it off
  5. Restart your game launcher

Game Mode is another feature that got introduced in Windows 10, but it is a complete hit or miss. In some games this features helps while it causes performance issues in some. So it is better to turn it off. Here is how to disable game mode:

  1. Open Windows 10 Settings menu
  2. Click on Gaming
  3. Select Game Mode from the left sidebar
  4. Turn it off
  5. Restart your game launcher

Disable Nvidia GeForce Experience Overlay (For Nvidia users)

Recently, I have noticed that a lot of Nvidia services would pop up whenever I turn on the Nvidia In-Game Overlay. You won’t realize until you check properly that there are a lot of these services and though individually they are consuming very little percentage of your CPU, when you combine them it is a hefty chunk. So try turning it off.

  • Launch Nvidia Geforce Experience
  • Click on the Settings icon in the top right corner
  • Select the General Tab
  • Turn of In-Game Overlay
  • Restart your system

Turn off Windows Background Recording

If you have Background Recording on your Windows, then it can cause FPS drops or lag. Basically, the feature constantly records in the background when you are playing a game. Here is how to disable Windows Background Recording:

  • Open Windows Settings
  • Click on Gaming
  • Select Captures
  • Now turn off Background Recording

Preferred Graphics Processor (For Nvidia Laptop users)

If your laptop feature an Nvidia graphics card inside, then you need to make sure your laptop is using that instead of the low powered integrated one.

  • Just open Nvidia Control Panel
  • Click on Manage 3D settings located on the left side
  • Select the Program Settings tab
  • Under “Select a program to customize” select Rogue Company
  • If it is not there, then click on Add and then select it
  • Now set “Select the preferred graphics processor for this program” to “High-performance NVIDIA processor”

Close Overclocking apps

Recently, a lot of games have been facing constant crashes and freezing due to overclocking utilities like MSI Afterburner or the Zotac Firestorm. Try to run your graphics card at base clock speeds and try to avoid overclocking as of now.

Check Anti-Virus Software on your System

Anti-Virus software hooks very deep into user systems and can affect disk and network operations, which can cause crashes in games. Some games also use copy protection technology that can appear as malicious software to an AV scanner, resulting in potential false-positive alerts.

Try disabling your Anti-Virus software temporarily and then run Rogue Company. It may also be necessary to add exceptions for Rogue Company in your AV configuration.

Run Epic Launcher with administrator rights

Launching the Epic Games Launcher with administrator rights might solve your problems. Here is how to do it:

  • Go to the folder where you have installed Epic Games Launcher
  • Right-click on EpicGamesLauncher.exe and select Properties
  • Go to the Compatibility tab
  • Click Change settings for all users
  • Under Privilege Level, check Run this program as administrator
  • Click Apply
