If you are having issues launching Ready or Not on PC, then this guide will help you out with it.
Fix Ready or Not won’t Launch or Crashing at Startup
Here is a list of suggested fixes if Ready or Not doesn’t launch or crashes during the startup. We also have a Ready or Not Graphics Settings guide that fixes the low performance, lags and stutter that you come across while playing the game.
Check System Requirements
Always check if you are meeting the Minimum System requirements or not.
Remember if you fail to meet the system requirements then there is no point moving further into the article. But if you have everything in place then proceed with the other recommendations that we have suggested.
Update your GPU Drivers
Always make sure that you have the latest Graphics driver installed on your PC.
- If you have an Nvidia GPU, download and install the latest drivers from here
- If you have an AMD GPU, download and install the latest drivers from here
Update your Windows and BIOS
Always have the latest version of Windows 11 installed on your PC. Remember that all the games and applications nowadays need the latest version of Windows installed to make them work. Open Start > type Windows update > Open Windows Update Settings > Check for Updates > Download and Install any pending updates > Restart your PC when there are no updates left
Also for some users, a quick BIOS update is enough to solve these startup issues.
Delete Corrupted Save/Mod Files
If you are having issues like crashing even before seeing the startup screen then it might be because of corrupted mod/save data. To fix this all you need to do is delete your save and mod data files. Delete the mod files inside [GameLocation]/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/ReadyOrNot/ReadyOrNot/Content/Paks/~mods folder. You must also delete the mod files from your Recycle Bin as well. Reload the Game and it should work as usual.
Verify the Game on Steam
Verify the Game on Steam and see if there are any pending updates left.
- Open the Steam Client
- Go to the Library and find the game “Ready or Not”
- Select properties after right-clicking on it
- Select the option “Verify Integrity of the Game Files”
- Relaunch the game after the process is done.
Disable Game Overlays
Disable all the current ingame overlays that you might be using. Game overlays eat up a lot of RAM and thus it hinder performance and even crashes the game at times. So it’s better to avoid these Overlays if you don’t have a high-end Gaming System.
- Nvidia Geforce Experience
- AMD Adrenalin Overlay
Disable Logitech Game Registry Service/Switching to Dx11 Mode
Try Disabling the Logitech Game Registry Service Process. You will be able to find it in Start > Services > Logitech Game Registry Service > Right Click & Disable it
You can also try switching to the Dx11 Mode if you are experiencing Sudden Crashes in Ready or Not. You can also try editing the file in %localappdata% > Ready or Not > Saved > Config > WindowsNoEditor > GameUserSettings.ini and set the RTX Settings to false, except for RTXenabled.
Pause Windows Defender
Disable or Turn off the Windows Defender by following the steps
- Go to Settings.
- Open up the Update and Security Option and select Windows Security.
- Disable Real-Time Scanning from the Virus and Threat Protection Settings
- You can also Pause the Protection while playing the game if you have a 3rd Party Antivirus Software.
- Also avoid software like Avast!, Comodo, Bitdefender, and ESET NOD Antivirus as they are known to cause conflicts in Ready or Not.
Reinstall the Game
If none of the above fixes work for you then try reinstalling the game once again and see if the problem persists. If yes, then send a ticket to the developers immediately.
So this was all about how to fix Ready or Not won’t Launch or Crashing at Startup.
