Monster Hunter Rise has launched for PC and fans of the franchise are loving the game. However, Monster Hunter Rise PC players are experiencing errors and issues like Fatal Application Exit, Fatal D3D Error, in-game crash, Failed to save, CreateD3Ddevicefailed, stuttering, and more. Here I have compiled a list of errors that PC players are reporting along with their fixes and workarounds.
Monster Hunter Rise Crash, Failed To Save, And Fixes
Monster Hunter Rise launched as a Nintendo Switch exclusive in 2021 and now has launched on PC. The game is running on Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine that has powered games like Resident Evil 7, Resident 2 Remake, and more.
Monster Hunter Rise isn’t very demanding in terms of hardware as the game requires a GTX 1060 as recommended. Despite that, PC players are reporting errors and issues with Monster Hunter Rise like Fatal Application Exit, Fatal D3D Error, in-game crash, Failed to save, CreateD3Ddevicefailed, stuttering, and more. The following are the errors and issues that PC players are experiencing along with their fixes and workarounds.
Fatal Application Exit, Fatal D3D Error Fix
Monster Hunter Rise PC players are experiencing Fatal Application Exit error at launch or renderdevicedx12.cpp Fatal D3D error and are unable to play the game. Here is how to fix these errors.
Try verifying the game files and it’ll download a small file. Players have reported that doing this has fixed the Fatal D3D Error.
Your GPU is probably causing the Fatal Application Exit error or Fatal D3D error. Either the GPU is overclocked or it isn’t handling the game’s load really well.
If the GPU is overclocked, revert it to its default GPU clock. In case the GPU isn’t overclocked then you can try lowering the graphics settings or use MSI Afterburner and start reducing the GPU clock by 50 MHz. If by 200 Mhz the Fatal Application Exit error doesn’t go away, then there is no point in reducing it any further.
Alternatively, players can cap the game’s max FPS to fix potentially fix the Monster Hunter Rise Fatal Application Exit error. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Setigns > select Moisnter Huter Rise. Enable the Max FPS limit and set a value for it. It’s going to be trial and error to find at which value the game stops crashing. However, as a general rule, if your current target is unlocked FPS, then cap the game to 60 FPS. In case your current target is 60 FPS, then cap the game to 30 FPS. Doing this reduces the GPU and CPU load and will fix the Monster Hunter Rise Fatal Application Exit error.
As for the renderdevicedx12.cpp Fatal D3D error in Moonster Hutner Rise, there is a potential fix that might work. Since the error is caused by DX 12, players can try to force the game to use DirectX 11. However, I am not sure if the game supports DX 11 but, it’s worth a try. Right-click Monster Hunter Rise in Steam > Properties > type -dx11 under Launch Options and hit OK. Launch the game and the Fatal D3D error will be fixed.
Failed To Save Fix
Monster Hunter Rise PC players are experiencing the save files could not be created error or Failed to save error and are unable to play the game. Here is how to fix the Monster Hunter Rise save game error. First, try to launch the game as an administrator. Right-click the game’s exe > properties > Compatibility tab > check “run this program as an administrator” and hit apply.
Your OneDrive backup is another reason why the game isn’t saving. Disable it and the Monster Hunter Rise save game error will be fixed.
Controlled Folder Access is another possible reason behind the save game error. open Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & Threat Protection > Manage ransomware protection > Turn off controlled folder access to fix the save game error.
Monster Hunter Rise PC players are experiencing in-game crashes and here is how to fix it. One reason behind the Monster Hunter Rise in-game crash is the use of third-party tools and software like MSI AFterburner, RGB Software, Discord, or any software that can interfere with the game. Disable any third-party software you are using and also disable Steam in-game overlay and GeForce Experience overlay to fix the Monster Hunter Rise in-game crash.
Your GPU is another reason behind the in-game crash. It’s either overclocked or not handling the game load really well. Check under “Fatal D3D Error Fix” above to see how you can fix it.
Monster Hunter Rise PC players are experiencing the CreateD3Ddevicefailed error at launch. This error occurs when you try to launch the game on a GPU that doesn’t support DX 12. Make sure your GPU has DirectX 12 support to play Monster Hunter Rise and not encounter the CreateD3Ddevicefailed error.
Game Not Starting, Crash At Startup Fix
Monster Hunter Rise PC players are reporting that the game is crashing at launch or not starting at all. There are a number of reasons why the game is crashing at startup and here is how to fix it.
Before we start with the fixes, first make sure you are using Windows 10 64-bit as the game doesn’t support old operating systems or 32-bit Win 10. Also, you need a DirectX 12 supporting GPU. If your GPU doesn’t support DX 12, the game won’t launch.
Your anti-virus software is probably blocking the game’s executable and causing the crash. Players can fix it by either disabling real-time protection or exclude the game’s install folder from it, I recommend the latter. After that, verify game files in Steam and Monster Hunter Rise will stop crashing at launch.
If the game is still crashing at startup or not launching, right-click Monster Hunter Rise in Steam > Manage > browse local files and a new window will open. Launch the game directly from its executable and chances are, players will get an error similar to the “vcruntime140_1.dll missing or MSVCP140.dll was not found” error. Players can fix this error by installing the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables both x64 and x86 versions. Restart your PC, launch Monster Hunter Rise, and it won’t crash at startup.
How To Get 60 FPS, Stuttering Fix
PC games often face performance issues like low FPS, stuttering, and more. Monster Hunter Rise PC is no exception as players are reporting stuttering and low FPS issues. Here is how to fix Monster Hunter Rise stuttering.
First, make sure you have installed the latest GPU driver and there is no background process using too much CPU, GPU, or HDD.
Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select Monster Hunter Rise and make the following changes.
Anti-aliasing-Gamma Correction – Off
Antialiasing Mode – Application Controlled
Antialiasing Transparency – Off
CUDA GPUs – All
Low Latency Mode – Ultra
Power Management – Prefer Maximum Performance
Shader Cache – On only if you are using an HDD. Don’t need to enable it for an SSD.
Texture filtering – Quality – High Performance

Triple Buffering – Off
Apply these settings and players will notice improved FPS and stuttering will be fixed.
Black Screen Fix
Monster Hunter Rise PC players are reporting a black screen issue. Some players are reporting that the game starts with a black screen with the game’s audio playing in the background. For some players, Monster Hunter Rise launches with a black screen but there is no audio. Here is how to fix the black screen issue.
Those of you facing the black screen issue with the game’s audio in the background, the game is probably running at a higher resolution than your native display resolution. This is a common issue and can be fixed easily. Launch the game and when the black screen appears, press “Alt + Enter” and Monster Hunter Rise will go into Windowed mode and will start to display. Go to video settings, change the resolution to your native display resolution and then you can play the game in Fullscreen mode.
If the above issue isn’t the one you are facing or it hasn’t fixed the black screen issue, then try playing the game while keeping Steam in offline mode. Players have reported that playing the game in offline mode has fixed the black screen issue.
