Palworld (11)

Palworld, the creature-catching survival game from Pocketpair, has its share of technical hiccups, among which the low-level fatal error stands out as particularly troublesome. This guide will delve into the reasons behind these errors and offer a series of potential fixes to enhance your gaming experience.

A low-level fatal error in Palworld typically points towards two primary issues: either your PC doesn’t align with the game’s recommended system requirements, or the game itself, being in Early Access, lacks optimal optimization. Fortunately, several solutions are applicable for the game’s Microsoft Store and Steam versions.

Solution #1: Update Graphics Card Drivers

A primary and often overlooked step is ensuring your graphics card drivers are up to date. Users with AMD GPUs should visit the AMD website for the latest drivers, while Nvidia GPU owners should head to the Nvidia website for updates.

Lowering the game’s graphical settings can significantly impact performance, particularly for PCs struggling with the demands of Palworld. Consider adjusting settings like Effects Quality, Texture Quality, Grass Detail, and View Distance. Additionally, turning off motion blur and enabling Vsync or capping your FPS can also be beneficial.

Solution #3: Switch to DirectX 12
