How to Fix Errors, Crashes and Bugs in Dead or Alive 5: Last Round : 

#1: Online Modes? 

Presently, this game does not offer any online modes for the players. However, the developers promised to add this option through a patch within coming 3 months.

#2: Game stuck at Autosave screen: 

This is very annoying. However, we have a workaround to solve this issue.

  • You need to find thumbs.dp file in the Savedata folder.
  • After finding it, delete it (You may need to backup the file just in case)
  • Now, get back to the game.

We also have another workaround for this error.

  • Go to Device Manager (Present in control panel)
  • Find “Human interface devices”
  • Now, disable the Game controller you are using in the interface devices.

#3: Game crashes on startup / Crashes back to desktop : 

Below, we have listed out the random crashes that people encounter due to outdated drivers. If you are encountering any one of those, then following our solution might help.

  • Crashing on battle results screen, which XP compatibility mode fixes
  • Game crashes back to desktop after start up.
  • Game crashes after Company logo
  • Game Crashing after the start screen
  • Game Crashing while taking screenshots
  • Game Crashing when not saved on an internal HDD
  • Excessive CPU usage to render things causes massive slowdowns

Solution: First of all, try to change the Desktop screen resolution to Game resolution. It might fix the error for few people. However, the best and most recommended solution is updating your Video Card and sound card drivers. If you have no clue how to do it,  Driver scanner will make your task go easier and Quicker.

Using Driver scanner is easy. After downloading it, it will perform a system scan and brings the list of outdated drivers to your notice. You can update them by one click from there.

#4: Dead or Alive 5 has stopped working fix: 

  • First of all, navigate to Steamapps folder to find “error.log” file. Generally, it can be found in steamapps folder. If not, search the entire directory
  • After finding it, open with notepad.
  • Now, you can see something like “The application caused access violation module in xxxx.dll” in the very first line.
  • Make a note of that Dll File name.


  • Download Dll-Files Fixer from here  (Read more about Dll-Files Fixer here)
  • After downloading, open “Install Dll Files” tab.
  • Now, input the name of Dll file in the bar and click on “install”
  • The software installs the file in right place and now you should be able to play.

#5: Can’t open the game in Full screen : 

Instead of launching the game directly, launch the config menu from steam when you start up the game. It will let you change resolution, full screen and few other options. Otherwise, find DOA5LR (Documents\KoeiTecmo\DOA5LR\DOA5LR.ini)  config file to make changes. You can find this text in the config file. For full screen mode, change window to FULL SCREEN

[DOA5LR startup setting]

#6: Low FPS/ FPS drops : 

If your specs are above the requirements, then the solution might be a bit annoying. You need to wait for the first patch to release (Hope the developers fix lag issues through it). However, setting high priority to the game in Task manager might help a bit.

Work in progress. Meanwhile, if you have found any fixes, please comment below or send them to so that we can add them to this list.
