Unturned PC is facing errors and issues like insufficient resources, crash at startup, BattlEye failed to initialize, and more. Here we will discuss all of the errors and issue with the game along with their fixes and workarounds.
Unturned Crash, Stuttering, And Fixes
Unturned is a free-to-play survival game. While the game looks simple but, has incredible depth to it. However, Unturned PC players are facing errors and issues like BattlEye not initializing, crash at launch, stuttering, general performance issues, no audio, and more.
The following are the errors and issues that players are experiencing along with their fixes and workarounds.
Insufficient Resources Fix
Unturned players are experiencing the “Insufficient System Resources” error which is not letting them play the game. The following is the full error.
22:44:33: Starting BattlEye Service…
22:44:36: Launching game…
22:44:46: Note: File blocks can be ignored if they don’t cause problems with the game.
22:44:46: [INFO] Blocked loading of file with unsupported UNC network path: Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Unturned\Unturned.exe”.
22:44:46: Failed to launch game
This error is related to the BattlEye. Chances are players have installed Unturned in a folder which BattlEye can’t access due to folder permission. Try changing the game’s location or change folder permissions and the error will be fixed.
BattlEye Failed To Initialize, Generic Error Fix
Since Unturned uses the BattlEye anti-heat system, players are experiencing the Generix Errors for the service where the BattleEye fails to start and won’t launch the game.
There are multiple reasons behind this BattlEye error. One reason for this error could be your anti-virus or Windows Defender. Disable your anti-virus software and if it’s blocking the service, then the error will be fixed and the game will launch.
As for Disabling Windows Defender on Win 10, go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection. A new window will open. Click on “manage settings” under Virus & threat protection settings. Turn-off real-time protection.
If this doesn’t fix the BattlEye failed to initialize error, then the issue might be other game-related services running in the background. Clients like Uplay, Steam, EA Origin and other video game services use the same framework. If multiple of them are running in the background, they cause this error. Just kill any services or clients you aren’t using for Unturned and the error will be fixed.
Another reason for BattlEye to not launch could be that you don’t have the latest version of the software. To update the services make sure the game itself is updated and also verify game files.
Fatal Application Error Fix
Some Unturned PC players are experiencing the Fatal Application Error related to memory when they try to launch the game. This is probably due to the system not being restarted or shut down for a long time. Just restart your system and the Fatal error will be fixed.
Crash At Startup, Game Not Launching Fix
According to players, when they launch Unturned it either doesn’t launch at all or just crashes at startup. There are multiple reasons as to why the game is crashing at launch.
One reason for a game to crash at startup or not launch at all is the lack of administrative rights. Make sure you are running the game on a Windows account with admins rights. Right-click the game’s exe > Properties > Compatibility tab > check “Run this program as administrator”. Apply the change, launch the game and the game will work fine.
Using third-party monitoring software like MSI Afterburner or GeForce Experience can cause the game to crash. Disable any third-party software you are using and the game won’t crash. If you are using the MSI Afterburner and disabling it hasn’t solved the issues then follow the steps below.
- Open RivaTuner Statistics Server(RTSS).
- Click the Add button and navigate to the game’s folder.
- Add Unturned’s exe under Application profile properties.
- Set Application detection level to None for the game application.
- Close RivaTuner Statistics Server.
If none of the above have fixed the issue or are not the issue at all, then your anti-virus or Windows Defender might be blocking the game’s exe by falsely detecting it as a Trojan. Either disable your anti-virus or exclude the game’s install folder from your anti-virus. Then verify games files and Unturned won’t crash at launch.
No Audio Fix
Some Unturned players are reporting an audio issue with the game where they can’t hear anything. There are a couple of fixes for this issue.
The first fix is simple. Open Settings > System > Sound > click on “Sound Control Panel” > choose your active sound device > properties > Spatial Sound tab > select “off”. Apply the change and the issue will be resolved.
If the game is still not outputting any audio then the Realtek audio driver might be the issue. Open device manager, under “Sound, Video and game controllers”, delete the “Realtek High Definition Audio”. Restart your system, launch Unturned and the audio issue is now resolved.
Disk Write Error Fix
Players are reporting that they are experiencing the Disk Write Error while downloading the game or updating the game. The following are the fixes for this particular error.
- Right-click on Steam.exe and select “Properties”. Go to the “Compatibility” tab and check “Run this program as an administrator”. Apply the setting and error should be resolved.
- If the above fix didn’t work, open CMD and run it as an administrator. Use the following commands and press enter after each of them.
select disk # (# is the number of the hard drive in which the game is installed)
attributes disk clear readonly
- If the error still persists, o to Steam/logs/content_log. Scroll down and look for “failed to write”. Open the file and it has paths to some corrupted files. Follow the path and delete these files and the game will install.
Missing Executeable Fix
This is another error that players are experiencing. Your anti-virus or Windows Defender might be blocking the exe. Either disable your anti-virus or exclude the game’s install folder from your anti-virus. Verify game files and the issue will be resolved.
Stuttering, Performance Fix
A lot of Unturned players are reporting that they are experiencing low FPS, random FPS drops, and stuttering while playing the game on PC. Here are some general performance fixes for the game.
First, make sure you have installed the latest GPU drivers and there is no background process using too much of your HDD, CPU, or GPU. Launch the game and see is the performance issues are resolved.
If not and you playing the game on a laptop with a dedicated GPU, chances are the game isn’t running on the dedicated GPU. For Nvidia users, open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game. Under the first step, select Non integrated GPU. Apply the change and the game will always run on the dedicated GPU.
As for AMD users, this can be done in Device Manager. Under display adapters, disable the integrated GPU option.
If the above is not the case with you then, disable in-game v.sync and close the game. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game from the menu. Make the following changes.
Set Vertical Sync to “ON”
Set “Power Management Mode” to “Prefer Maximum Performance”
set “Texture Filtering- Quality” to “High Performance”
Apply these changes and launch Unturned. Stuttering and FPS issues will not be resolved.
In case this doesn’t fix the performance issues then follow the steps mentioned above but set Vertical sync to “Fast”. Launch the game and it should be running in Fullscreen mode. This will not only fix stuttering but, will also provide a potential FPS boost if you have a moderate enough CPU and GPU.
