Install Proton Hotfix

Steam Deck users report that Tekken8 is crashing with the LowLevelFatalError. This error can be fixed by installing or updating the Proton that has targeted fixes for Tekken 8 and fixes the LowLevelFatalError.

Create TdrLevel File In Windows Registry

To fix the Tekken 8’s LowLevelFatalError DXGI errors or the “UE-Polaris Game crash” error, you need to create a new TdrLevel file in your Windows registry. Tekken 8 is causing an issue between the GPU and Windows where the OS perceives the GPU to be inactive for 2 seconds, which in reality isn’t. This results in Tekken 8 crashing with LowLevelFatalError or DXGI error messages. Creating the TdrLevel file in your Windows registry will reset the GPU driver the moment this issue arises and Tekken 8 won’t crash to the desktop with DXGI errors.

  • Type regedit in Windows search and run it as an administrator
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> GraphicsDrivers
  • Right Click in the right panel in the ‘blank space’ and Select New In Windows Registry
  • Select DWORD (32-bit) Value and name the file TdrLevel
  • Double-click TdrLevel and select Modify
  • Confirm that the value is 0
  • Restart your PC

Update or Reinstall GPU Driver

Your GPU driver is outdated or having compatibility issues with Tekken 8, which is why it’s crashing with the LowlevelFatalError DXGI error. Update or install a different driver version to fix the error. Ensure you do a clean installation so that settings from the previous driver install won’t interfere with the new one.

Download the driver and launch the setup.

Select custom and click next.
Check ‘Perform a clean installation’ and click next to install.

Limit Max Frame Rate

Tekken 8 is a game that has to be played at least at 60 FPS and PC users have the option to play it at a high or unlocked FPS. The higher the FPS, the better the response time and the smoother the game feels. However, it also increases the GPU and CPU load. If you are playing Tekken 8 a an unlocked or high FPS, it’s the reason for it crashing with the LowLEvelFatalError DXGI errors. Limit the game’s maximum FPS to reduce the GPU and CPU load and the DXGI error will be fixed.

  • Open the Nvidia Control Panel
  • Click “Manage 3D Settings” and open the Program Settings tab
  • Select Persona 3 Reloaded from the drop-down menu
  • Scroll down, enable Max Frame Rate, and set a value for it

Note: Unless you use a Freesync or G.sync display, your Max Frame Limit should be 1/2, 1/3rd, or 1/4th of your monitor’s refresh rate. Otherwise, the game will feel jittery.

Open the Nvidia Control Panel
Go to program settings
Select the game from the list
Enable Max Frame Rate
Hit apply after making changes

Increase Shader Cache Size

Tekken 8 runs on Unreal Engine 5 and this game engine relies heavily on on shaders for its visuals and performance. The default shader cache size set by the GPU isn’t enough for Tekken 8, which is why it’s crashing with the LowLevelFatalError DXGI error messages. Increase the shader cache size and the error will be fixed.

  • Open the Nvidia Control Panel
  • Go to Manage 3D Settings > Global Settings
  • Scroll down to Shader Cache
  • Select 10 GB and apply the changes

Delete DirectX Shader Cache

The DirectX shader cache on your Windows PC is either corrupt or has compatibility issues with Tekken 8, which is why the game is crashing to the desktop with the LowLevelFatalError DXGI errors. Delete the DirectX shader cache to fix the LowLevelFatalError DXGI errors. The new DirectX cache will be created the next time you launch the game.

  • Go to System > Storage > Temporary Files
  • Check “DirectX Shader Cache” and click “Remove Files”

Enable Debug Mode

Most graphics cards from AIB partners like MSI or Zotac are factory overclocked or have higher GPU and Memory clocks compared to Nvidia’s reference models. This is causing Tekken 8 to crash to the desktop with the LowLevelFatalError DXGI errors. Enable the Debug Mode to force the GPU to use Nvidia’s recommended GPU and Memory clocks and the LowLevelFatalError will be fixed. Open the Nvidia Control Panel > Help > Debug Mode.

Disable XMP

XMP allows PC users to overclock their RAM without having to fiddle with RAM speen and voltages or use multiple memory settings. It ensures that your RAM is fully utilized and is the reason for the Tekken 8’s LowLevelFatalError DXGI errors. Disable the XMP profile through your PC’s BIOS and the DXGI errors will be fixed.
