Share

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous has launched for PC with great critical reception. The PC version of Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous, however, is facing errors and issues like crash at startup, Unity error, Disk Write Error, in-game crash, audio stuttering, and more. Here I have compiled a list of errors and issues that PC players are experiencing with Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous along with their fixes and workarounds like how to fix in-game disk write error, how to fix Unity error.

Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Crash, Stuttering, And Fixes

Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous is an isometric RPG based on Paizo Publishing’s Pathfinder franchise. The PC version of the game is optimized but still, PC players are reporting errors and issues with Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous like the crash at startup, Unity error, Disk Write Error, in-game crash, audio stuttering, and more.

The following are the errors and issues that PC players are experiencing along with their fixes and workarounds.

Disk Write Error Fix

PC players are reporting that they are unable to update or install the game as they get Disk Write Error. There are multiple reasons behind this particular error and here is how to fix it.

One reason behind the Disk Write Error could be your anti-virus or Windows Security blocking “Wrath.exe” and causing the error. Either disable the anti-virus or exclude the game’s folder from it. After that, retry to update or download and the Disk Write Error will be fixed.

If the error persists, open CMD and run it as administrator. Type the following commands and press enter after each command.

diskpart
list disk
select disk # (# is the number of the hard drive in which the game is installed)
attributes disk clear readonly.

If the above fixes didn’t work, exit Steam and then go to Steam’s install folder and navigate to Steam/logs/content_log. Look for “failed to write” and open the file. This file will have paths to the corrupt files causing the error. Follow the paths mentioned here and delete the files that you find there. Launch Steam and verify game file. After that, resume the update or download and the Disk Write Error will be fixed.

Game Not Starting, Crash On Startup Fix

PC players are reporting that Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous is crashing at launch or not starting at all. There are a number of reasons behind the Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous crash at startup and here is how to fix it.

One reason for the Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous crash at launch could be your Registry. Open Registry Editor and navigate to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\owlcat. Delete the entire key and then launch the game. Let the game boot up to the main menu. This will fix the crash at launch issue with the game.

Another reason for the game to crash at launch could be the anti-virus/Windows Security blocking game’s exe. Players can fix this by either disabling the real-time protection or exclude the game’s install folder from the anti-virus. I recommend the latter and the process varies from anti-virus to anti-virus.

For Windows Security, go to the Virus and Threat Protection and allow any game files that have been blocked or quarantined. Then open Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection > click Manage Settings under “Virus & threat protection settings” > click “add or remove exclusions” under “Exclusions”. Browse to the game’s folder and add Wrath.exe. Open Steam and verify game files. Then launch Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous and it won’t crash.

If the above fixes didn’t work, then right-click Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous in Steam > Manage > browse local files. Launch the game directly from Wrath.exe and chances are, players will get an error. In case you are experiencing the “X3DAudio1_7.dll or XAPOFX1_5.dll or D3DCOMPILER_43.dll is missing” error, fix it by installing the latest DirectX files. If you are experiencing the “vcruntime140_1.dll or MSVCP140.dll Was Not Found” error, install the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables both x64 and x86 versions. This will fix the Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous crash at launch issue.

Unity Error Fix

Some PC players are reporting that they are experiencing the following Unity error or a similar error in Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous.

Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous – Unity 2019.4.26f1_e0392c6b2363

One fix of the Unity error is to open Registry Editor and navigate to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\owlcat. Delete the entire key and then launch the game. Unity error will be fixed.

Another reason behind this particular error could be the use of in-game overlays like Steam overlay and Geforce Experience overlay. Disable any in-game overlay you are using and the error will be fixed.

If the above fixes didn’t work, then your GPU could be causing the error. Players can try capping the game’s max FPS to fix the Unity error. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous. Enable “Max FPS Limit” and set the value for the Max FPS. It’s a bit of trial and error to figure out at which FPS the game will become stable. Alternatively, cap the game at 30 FPS if you are playing at 60 FPS or, cap the game at 60 FPS if you are trying to play at unlocked FPS. This will fix the Unity error in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.

Crash Fix

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous PC players are reporting that the game is crashing while playing and here is how to fix it. One reason for the game to crash is the use of third-party tools and software like MSI afterburner or RGB Software. Disable any third-party software you have installed and also disable Steam overlay and GeForce Experience overlay. Do this and the game won’t crash to the desktop while playing.

Your GPU driver could also be the reason why the game is crashing. Update or reinstall your GPU driver and do a clean installation to fix the in-game crash.

If the above fixes didn’t work then your GPU is either overclocked or isn’t handling the game’s load really well. In case the GPU is overclocked, then revert it to its default GPU clock. If your GPU isn’t overclocked then try lowering the graphics settings or use MSI Afterburner to reduce the GPU clock by 100 MHz.

Alternatively, players can cap the Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous’s max FPS. See under “Unity Error Fix” to check how to do it. This will fix the in-game crash issue in Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous.

Audio Stuttering Fix

PC players are reporting the Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous’s audio is stuttering and here is how to fix it. Vertical sync is one of the reasons behind the audio stuttering. Disable in-game v.sync and then close the game. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous > select “Fast” for Vertical Sync and hit apply. Launch the game and the audio won’t stutter anymore.

Low FPS, Stuttering Fix

Performance issues are common among PC video games and Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous is no exception as players are reporting errors and issues like Low FPS and stuttering. Here is how to fix stuttering and performance issues.

First, make sure you have installed the latest GPU driver and do a clean installation.

Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous and make the following changes.

Anti-aliasing-FXAA – “Off”
Anti-aliasing-Gamma Correction – “Off”
CUDA GPUs – “All”
Low Latency Mode – Ultra (if locked at 30 FPS, otherwise, player choice)
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 Sync to “Use the 3D application setting”

Apply these settings and players will see a noticeable improvement in performance and the stuttering will be fixed.
