Some players have reported experiencing issues where the game randomly crashes during battle. The workaround for this is simple and and the first method you can make use of is to try and run the game in a borderless windowed mode. The other way to fix this issue is to set the FPS option in-game to “Unlimited.” Either of these methods should help in addressing this problem.


Some players have reported a problem where there is no audio in the game when using HDMI, or there is no audio at all. To fix this issue, just open Playback Devices and set the correct audio device as default if it already isn’t. The problem might have occurred because a wrong device was somehow selected as the default device.

If you are experiencing problems with the audio when using the Dualshock 4 controller, you can try disabling the controller’s microphone or additionally, you can also try plugging in your headphones or speakers directly into the controller. This should fix any audio problems you experience when using a Dualshock 4 controller.


This may be a problem experienced by some Nvidia GPU owners where the screen flickers or you see a green screen when running the game. To fix this issue, open up the Nvidia Control Panel and select ‘Change Resolution’ and then check ‘Use Nvidia Color Setting’ and then set it to ‘Highest (32 bit)’. This should resolve the issue for you.


If you’re facing a problem with your controller not working in the game, then you might have to try multiple methods to fix the issue. If the Dualshock 4 controller is not working for you, then disable support for it by going to ‘General Controller Settings’ and disabling the ‘PS4 Controller Support.’

If you are using an Xbox 360 controller, just switch to ‘Big Picture Mode’ in Steam before launching the game and the problem should be fixed.

If these methods still don’t fix the issue for you, then you can try the following method. Open Steam and go to ‘In-game’ settings and check ‘Use Big Picture overlay when using a Steam Controller on Desktop.’ Next, check the ‘Guide Button Focuses Steam’ option from Controller settings. Now go ahead and launch the game and then bring up the Steam overlay by pressing SHIFT + TAB.

Now click on controller configuration and check ‘Show Other Controller Types.’ You will now see a list of controller configurations. Just select the one you want and the issue should be resolved now once and for all.

Note: Given that the wide range of PC hardware out there, the fixes mentioned here may or may not work for you. But it’s worth giving them a shot since these have worked for players who own the PC version of Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom.
