Three Kingdoms 14 vcomp140.dll, Crash, And Fixes
Romance of the Three Kingdoms 14 is the latest entry in the long-running franchise. However, the latest game hasn’t resonated with the fan base.
Now only that, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV PC is facing errors like vcomp140.dll missing, crash at launch, APPCRASH, and more. The following are the errors and the issues that players are experiencing along with their fixes and workarounds.
Crash At Startup, Game Not Launching Fix
Crashing at startup or not launching is a common issue with PC video games and has multiple reasons behind it. Here are a few fixes that might help with Romance of the Three Kingdoms 14 crashing at launch.
If you are facing this issue on an AMD GPU then the issue is probably the GPU driver. You need to roll back to Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.10.1 (WHQL) as the latest one is creating issues with the game.
Another reason for the game to crash at launch might be your anti-virus software or Windows Defender detecting the game’s exe as a Trojan virus. Fix it by either disabling the anti-virus or excluding the game’s install folder from the anti-virus.
One more reason for Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV to crash at startup is the lack of administrative rights.
Right-click on the game’s exe > properties > “Compatibility” tab > check “Run this program as administrator”. Apply the change and start the game and it will be working.
Using third-party monitoring software like MSI Afterburner or GeForce Experience is also one of the reasons for the game to not launch. Disable it and the game should be working fine.
vcomp140.dll Missing Fix
Players are reporting that when they start the game they get the error telling them vcomp140.dll is missing. The fix for this error is quite simple.
Just update your Windows and uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable from your PC. Then reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2012, 2013, 2015, then 2017.
You can also resolve this error by manually downloading the missing vcomp140.dll and placing it in “C: \ Windows \ System32″ for a 32-bit system if the system is 64-bit then place it at C: \ Windows \ SysWOW64”.
Start menu-> Run-> enter regsvr32 vcomp140.dll and press Enter. However, I don’t recommend this as it can potentially put your system at risk.
Black Screen Fix
Black screen at launch is another issue that Romance Of the Three Kingdoms XIV players are experiencing. According to players, when they start the game they get a black screen while the audio plays in the background.
Start the game and when the black screen appears press “Alt + Enter”. The game will go into Windowed mode and will start to display. Go to video settings and set the resolution which is native to your display and you’ll be able to play in fullscreen.
atidxx64.dll Crash Fix
Players are reporting that Romance of the Three Kingdoms 14 crashes with an error related to atidxx64.dll. This error is related to the driver for your AMD GPU.
If you are using the latest driver then roll back to Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.10.1 (do a clean installation) as the game is facing issues with the latest AMD drivers.
If you are already using the Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.10.1 (WHQL) then update to the latest version and do a clean installation.

Stuttering, Performance Fix
Performance is often an issue with PC video games and Romance of the Three Kingdoms 14 is no exception. Here are a few things that might help you fix the stuttering and overall performance of the game.
First, make sure you are using the latest GPU drivers and there is no background process using too much of your CPU, HDD, or GPU.
