However, there are certain issues that are not letting the players install/run the game. We have found that there are certain crashes, bugs and errors in DOOM that need a solution. So, we have come up with a list of workarounds, solutions/fixes (or whatever you call them).

#1 DOOM Screen Tearing Problem:

Few people have complained that they are encountering screen tearing problem. The solution for this issue in enabling “V-sync” and “Triple buffering”.

#2: DOOM 2016 Crashing Issues Fix:

Crashing issues generally occur when there’s conflict between the drivers of hardware. So, the best practice to avoid the crashing issues is to update the drivers very often. However, sometimes it gets tough to find the corrupt drivers and to make a clean install. We recommend you to try Driver Scanner. This tool notifies you whenever there are new drivers and even updates the old drivers when made a scan. So,

  • Go to this page.
  • To scan for drivers, download the Driver scanner.(It will prompt you to download it.)
  • After downloading it, perform a complete PC scan using it.
  • Now from the results, you can update the drivers by one click.
 #3: Black screen on startup Fix- DOOM :
 There can be multiple reasons for the black screen issue. First of all, make sure that your Display drivers are upto date. You can follow this guide of us if you don’t know how to update the drivers. Alternatively, you can try Disabling the on-screen display of any hardware tool you might be using like MSI Afterburner etc.
#4: Low FPS and Lag issues in DOOM fix:
So, here’s the thing you need to look at first. The game contains highly graphical content and requires a HIGH end gaming rig from you. So, if you don’t have one, these FPS and lag issues are quite common.
Recommended Suggestion:
As the most recommended option, we suggest you to use Kill Ping, an amazing tool that can solve High Ping, packet loss issues and hence the lag issues.
Other Suggestions:
So, here are some of the tweaks and workarounds that might help you in solving the lag issue for DOOM.
  • Tweaking Nvidia control Panel: Go to Nvidia Control Panel> Manage 3D settings and find “power management mode” setting in the drop down menu. Set it to “prefer maximum performance”
  • Tweaking the Task Manager: Open Task Manager and go to Details tab. Now, from the list, right click on the exe file of the game and set priority to “High”

#5: DLL Error while installing DOOM Fix:

There’s a potential workaround that will solve any dll error. All you need to do is just follow the simple steps listed below and you’ll end up solving the error. This software we mentioned has a success rate of 99%

  • First of all, download Dll-Files fixer from here.
  • Now, you can perform a system scan for fixing registry errors (This is optional. Fixing registry errors can really help you at times)
  • Open “Install DLL files” tab.
  • Now, input the name of dll file in the search tab. The fixer will automatically install the file in required location and you can get back to enjoy the game.

You can watch this GIF for more info. I had that file already installed. I have just recorded it for helping you.

#6: Download stuck at 99%

Firstly, make sure that your Anti-virus isn’t the problem here. Generally, it takes more time at the “99%”, so be patient. However, if that’s not the case, disable your anti-virus and download the game again.

#7: Stuttering issues in DOOM Fix:

Users have been complaining that they are facing stuttering issues while playing the game. The workaround to solve this problem is to enable “Vsync”

#8: How to skip intro videos in DOOM ?;

They might be fun watching for the first time. However, when you watch them repeatedly, it gets annoying. Thanks for one of the commentors for suggesting this workaround. Just add ”

Just add “+com_skipIntroVideo 1” in the launch options . This should make the intro videos disappear when you launch the game.

    • Pewpew

      Disable the intro for the game. *+com_skipIntroVideo 1* in the launch options 🙂 worked for me atleast.

      • blakewhitlow

        Thanks but I already fixed it. I have a program like Hamachi but better ( evolve) I disabled that
        and it worked. Someone on the forums figured it out.

        • Pewpew

        • dzsozi30

  • Retno Gaming

    So I tried to fire the BFG 9000. *CRASH*

  • Robert Karst

    Don’t use either of the software he told you to download, both are utter bullshit and I am constantly having to remove that crapware from customer’s computers.

  • Jono Charles Davey

    Yeah, what’s really annoying is when I maximise the game after minimising it, it forces keyboard and mouse settings and disables gamepad, Is there a bitter “PC Master Race” employee working for the company?

  • Mike

    I’m not sure on the name of the level but it’s when you’re at the top of the tower and what’s her name activated the device to open the portal to Hell causing a bunch of demons to warp in. After fighting for a bit and the announcer counts down, the screen fades to black, then there’s nothing. How do I fix?

    • Alec Espinosa

      Have same problem, haven’t tried it yet but I heard if you lower some settings during that part, such as resolution, it will work and then you can turn them back up.

  • ziffel

    Uh, the title says a black screen fix, then doesn’t mention a damn thing about that.

  • Buddydudeguy

    Had my first crash with the BFG 9000. the BFG is so good the game goes WTF and crashes I guess? Normally my pc chews this game up. 120+fps 1440p max settings.
