I have compiled a list of errors and issues that Marvel’s Avengers players are experiencing along with their fixes and workarounds. Also, our guide will help players with how they can improve the game performance and get 1080p/60 FPS experience.

Marvel’s Avengers Crash, Low FPS, And Fixes

Marvel’s Avengers has finally released for PC and consoles after being delayed from May 2020 to September 2020. Critically the game is receiving mixed reception and the game’s optimization isn’t that good.

Marvel’s Avengers PC players are reporting errors and issues like the crash at startup, in-game crash, Fatal Error, DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error, memory leaks, bigfile.000.tiger error, display driver stopped responding, low FPS, stuttering, and more.

The following are the errors and issues that players are experiencing with the game along with their fixes and workarounds. This guide will also help players with the game’s performance to fix issues like Low FPS and stuttering so that players can get a smooth 1080p/60 FPS experience.

Crash Fix

Marvel’s Avengers PC players are reporting that the game is crashing randomly while playing. The circumstances of these random Marvel’s Avengers crashes are varying from player to player. Here are the fixes for the game’s random crash issue.

For some players, Marvel Avenger’s Crashes with a “display driver stopped responding error”. This error is being experienced mostly by players with a GTX 10 series GPU. First of all, update the GPU driver. If the game is still crashing then it might be a memory leak or the game’s optimizations.

Here I recommend that you cap the game’s Max FPS Limit. This can be done in-game but that option activates dynamic resolution. So, players will have to force it through GPU driver.

Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game. Turn on “Max FPS Limit” and set the value to 30 to lock the game at 30 FPS for the time being and then apply. Doing this will reduce the GPU load and Marvel’s Avengers will stop crashing. If limiting FPS isn’t acceptable then you can just lower the graphics settings.

Some players are reporting that Marvel’s Avengers crash is occurring with any error. This crash might be because of the display mode being set to Fullscreen. I recommend that you change it to Windowed and the game will stop crashing randomly.

Another fix for the Marvel’s Avengers crash issue is to turn on the “Low Latency Mode” through Nvidia Control Panel. Depending on the option you choose, Low Latency Mode reduces to stops the CPU from frame buffering. This frees up the CPU a bit and the game will stop crashing.

Again follow the Nvidia Control Panel path I mentioned above and set “Low Latency Mode” to “On” or “Ultra”. I recommend Ultra as it’ll completely stop the CPU from buffering any frames. It’ll also improve in-game Latency.

Also, players who have enabled Hardware-Accelerated GPU scheduling are also experiencing this crash issue. Just disable this feature in Windows 10 settings and marvel’s Avengers won’t crash. Search “Graphics Settings” in the Windows search bar and disable Hardware Accelerated GPU Scheduling. This will fix the crash.

Another reason for the game to crash is the use of third-party tools and software like MSI Afterburner and in-game overlays. Display any third-party software you are using along with Steam and GeForce Experience overlays and the game won’t crash anymore.

If the game is still crashing then check out these troubleshooting steps that might help fix it.

bigfile.000.tiger Error Fix

“bigfile.000.tiger” error is a recurrent one in video games developed Crystal Dynamics. There is more than one reason why this “bigfile.000.tiger” error is occurring and here are the fixes.

The first fix is very simple, just verify Marvel’s Avengers game files and the issue will be fixed. To do that, open Steam library > right-click the game > Properties > Local Files tab > click “Verify Integrity of Game Files”. This will fix the “bigfile.000.tiger” error with Marvel’s Avengers.

However, it might not work for everyone and if you are one of those then just uninstall and then reinstall the GPU driver and do a clean installation. This will fix the error and players will be able to play the game.


This is another one of Marvel’s Avengers errors that PC players are experiencing. According to players, the game just crashes while playing with the “DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG” error.

This one is being caused by either the driver or the GPU isn’t able to handle the game’s load. If the GPU driver is the issue, then reinstall the driver and do a clean installation. This will fix the error.

Another cause of the DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error is using high-resolution textures. Drop the texture quality to High and the error won’t happen again.

If all else fails, then cap the game’s FPS to 30. See under “Crash Fix” to see how you can lock the game at 30 FPS and I don’t recommend doing it in-game instead, cap thee FPS through the GPU driver.

Fatal error Fix

Marvel’s Avengers players are experiencing crashes with a Fatal error message. This issue is probably related to the GPU. Either it’s overclocked or old.

If GPU is overclocked, even if its factory overclocked, then revert it back to its default clocks and the issue will be fixed.

In case the GPU is old then try reducing the clock speed by 100 MHz using MSI Afterburner. If you don’t want to mess with GPU’s clock speeds then I suggest you cap the game’s max FPS to 30 and the issue will be fixed.

Memeory Leak Fix

Memory Leak is another error that Marvel’s Avengers players are experiencing. There is a potential fix for this error. Follow this link to see how you can fix the Marvel’s Avengers Memropy leak error.

Game Not Launching, Crash At Startup Fix

Marvel’s Avengers players are reporting that the game is crashing at launch or not launching at all. Ther are a number of reasons why the game is crashing at launch and here are the fixes.

The first fix the players need to try is to give the game admin rights. Right-click the game’s exe > Properties > Compatibility tab > check “Run this program as administrator”. Apply the change and Marvel’s Avengers won’t crash at launch.

Another reason for the game’s crash at startup issue could be your anti-virus/Windows Security. Either disable real-time protection of excluding the game’s folder from it. For Windows Security, open Windows Security > Virus & Threat Protection > click “Manage Settings” under “Virus & Threat Protection settings”. Disable the “Real-Time Protection”. After that, verify game files and the game won’t crash at startup anymore.

You could also be missing some important Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable files. Install the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables both x86 and x64 versions and the issue will be fixed.

Also, if you haven’t updated your Windows 10 os in while, it might be the cause of the crash or game not launching. Updated your OS and the issue will be fixed.

No Audio, Audio Fixes

Marvel’s Avenger PC players are also facing audio issues like no audio or in-audible dialogue with 5.1 surround and 7.1 surround headphones. Here are the fixes.

For the in-audible dialogue issue with surround sound headphones, the OS might not have selected the proper audio channels. Open Settings > System > Sound > click “Sound Control Panel”.

A new window will open, select your active audio output > Configure > select the correct audio channel > press Next and go with the setup. This will fix the audio issues with the surround sound setup.

How To Get 60 FPS, Stuttering Fix

Low FPS and stuttering are common issues among PC video games and Marvel’s Avengers is no exception. Here are the fixes for Marvel’s Avengers low FPS and stuttering issues along with tips on how to get 60 FPS experience.

The latest GPU driver 452.06, at the time of writing, is causing performance issues with Marvel’s Avengers. So, if you have installed this driver, then revert it back to the 446.14 driver version. This along will improve performance significantly.

If you have enabled Hardware-Accelerated GPU Scheduling then disable it as this option impacts the game’s performance.

Start the game and disable in-game V.sync and I would recommend that you set anti-aliasing to “TAA”. This anti-aliasing technique might be blurry but, it certainly can improve the game’s FPS.

Also, don’t use the High-resolution pack if you are playing on a 1080P or 1920 x 1080 resolution. You don’t need these textures at this resolution os drop the Texture Resolution to “High”. Apply these settings and close the game.

Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game. Make the following changes.

Anti-aliasing-FXAA – “Off”
Anti-aliasing-Gamma Correction – “Off”
CUDA GPUs – “All”
Low Latency Mode – Ultra.
Set Power Management to “Prefer Maximum Performance”
Shader Cache – “On” only if you are using an HDD. Don’t need to enable it for an SSD.
Set Texture filtering – Quality to “High Performance”
Triple Buffering – “Off”
Set Vertical Syn to “On”

Apply these settings and not only stuttering will be fixed but, players will see a clear boost in performance and potentially 60 FPS experiencing. In case the performance issues persist, then set Vertical Syn to “Fast”. Apply this and the game’s performance will be improved.

That is all for our Marvel’s Avengers fixes for errors and issues like DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG, Fatal error, no audio in surround sound, in-game crash, crash at startup, stuttering, and more.

  1. Hello everyone.
    I think I found the real cause responsible for all the crashes in this game.
    I would like to point out that my PC consists of a Ryzen 3800XT CPU and an Nvidia 3060Ti GPU, no overclocking, so I can claim to have a stable and performing system.
    I tried different graphic configuration’s game and Geforce driver’s, but it always presented some kind of crashes, even playing with the lowest possible configurations, until…
    … I used motherboard audio outputs instead of GPU HDMI audio and set the PC audio to 16bit!! It was amazing!!
    At first I played in stereo mode, but now I can play without crashes in 5.1 channels 192000Hz 16bit mode (FPS 60Hz in 2180×1440 Ultra graphic quality full detailed with 4k textures !!).
    I’m just sorry I don’t enjoy Dolby Atmos quality anymore, but at 192000Hz bitrate it’s very satisfying; there’s only a slight “analog” rustle.
    I hope this solution will help you all.
