Kena Bridge of Spirits is an action-adventure game released for PS5 and PC. PC video games often face errors and issues and Kena is no exception. PC players are reporting that the game is crashing at launch or while playing. Here is how to fix the Kena Bridge of Spirits crash on PC.
Kena Bridge of Spirits Crash Fix
PC players are reporting that they are experiencing Kena Bridge of Spirits in-game crash. One reason behind the crash could be DirectX 12. Switch to DX11 from the settings menu if you are using DX12 to fix the in-game crash issue.
Using a third-party tool or software like MSI Afterburner, RTSS, RGB software can also cause the game to crash as these software sometimes interfere with the game. Disable any third-party software you are currently using and also disable GeForce Experience overlay if you are using it.
The GPU driver is another possibility that is causing Kena Bridge of Spirits to crash. Try to install another driver version and make sure to do a clean installation to fix the issue.
Another possibility is that the GPU is overclocked or not able to handle the game’s load. If the GPU is overclocked, revert it to its default GPU clock.
If the GPU isn’t overclocked then it might not be handling the game’s load really well and causing the in-game crash. I suggest you lower the graphics settings or use MSI Afterburner and reduce the GPU clock by 100 MHz. This will stabilize the game and it won’t crash.
Alternatively, players can limit the Max FPS to reduce GPU and CPU load. Since Kena Bridge of Spirits is a single-player game, capping the game’s FPS won’t hurt in terms of gameplay. But ultimately, it’s your decision. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select Kena Bridge of Spirits. Enable “Max FPS Limit” and set the value for the game’s max FPS.
It’s a bit of a trial and error to find at which value the game becomes stable. However, as a rule of thumb, if you are currently targeting 60 FPS, then lock the game to 30 or maybe 40 FPS. If your current target is over 60 FPS, then capping the game to 60 FPS would fix the in-game crash.
Game Not Starting, Crash At Startup Fix
PC players are reporting a crash at launch issue with Kena Bridge of Spirits and here is how to fix it. First, try giving Kena Bridge of Spirits admin rights. Find the game’s exe in its install folder and right-click it > properties > compatibility tab > select “Run this program as administrator” and hit apply.
Some PC players are reporting error messages following crash at startup like Xinput1_4.dll is missing or a similar error. Install the latest DirectX to fix the error. In case it doesn’t work, navigate to C:\Windows\System32. Find a file names xinput1_1.dll or xinput1_2.dll or xinput1_3.dll and copy it to desktop. Rename the copied file to whatever file name you are getting in the error message. Place the renamed file back in C:\Windows\System32 fixing the crash at startup issue.
