Dying Light has become the most anticipated Game of January, 2015 as GTA 5 postponed it’s release date to March 24, 2015. Dying light has released for consoles and PC on January 27,2015. Within the few hours of it’s release, it has got Very positive reviews from Steam. Dying Light game is basically a Zombie Apocalypse game set up in an Open world. Players traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population with a heavy focus on free running mechanics. Players also can customize the four characters in the game.

#Random Crashes/ Stuttering issues : 

I seriously suggest you all to change the resolution of the Game if it’s opening. However, if the game is crashing to desktop while opening without even showing the start screen, the solution is updating your Drivers. It has worked fine for few of the players and they are able to play the game with Lag too. Updating drivers is the easiest and smartest way to avoid crashing issues and stuttering issues. I have found this tool on the internet that can make your work simpler. Download it and that’s it. It will do it for you through one click.

#Game not opening : Input Not supported: 

Whenever you open the game, it shows “Input not supported” error notice. The possible solutions for this are,

  • Change the Desktop resolution to the Game resolution.
  • Or else, Reboot your PC. Then press F8 continuously until you get Boot options.
  • Then Enable Low resolution mode.

LOW FPS / FPS drops Fix For Dying Light : 

If your PC did not meet the requirements, they you should bear it . However, you can try the workaround given below . It might help you get rid of lag atleast.

  • First, go to Task Manager.
  • Then go to “Details” Tab.
  • Now, find the .exe file of Dying Light.
  • Then Right click on it and select “Set Priority ” option and set the priority to “Real-time” or high.

This worked for many users.. 🙂

Failed to Start game. Missing Dyinglight.exe

Make sure that you have turned off the Anti-virus while installing. Sometimes, your Anti-virus software deletes it during Malware check up . Find the exe file in recycle bin . Restore it back.

Sound Stuttering/ Noise / Sound Lag issues: 

Only few people have been facing this error. So, it’s definitely not the developers Fault. I suggest you to update your Sound card drivers. It might work well :). Use this tool to make your task easier.

Dll Crash on start up/ Dyinglight.exe has stopped working :

“The program has stopped working as “Dllfilename.dll” is missing from your Computer.

This is one of the error message regarding the Dll crashes. I have seen people uninstalling the game after encountering this error. That’s just a waste. I will show you the simplest method to fix this error.

  • Download the Dll-Files Fixer from here.
  • After downloading, run the tool.
  • Then, it will scan your PC for Dll errors. It generally takes 5-10 minutes.
  • After that, you can directly fix the errors through one click.

#Dying Light SLI Stutter Fix: 

I know that disabling SLI is not a reliable option as it makes the game Unplayable. However, you can try this workaround.

  • Go to [Steam path]\userdata\[user ID]\remote\out\logs
  • Then select properties.
  • Now, mark “Read only option”. You may need to click on it twice for this to happen.
  • Now,click the security tab and click Edit Button.Click on your username in the list. Below that, check the Deny box next to “Modify”. It should check the options below it as well. Click OK. Click Yes, if prompted. Click OK. Click OK to the prompt that appears.

  • tired of shit games

    might be a good game if i could actually play it. its just another case of game devs releasing an unfinished unplayable game for alot of people it runs shit cant believe i just forked out $100 for this garbage

    • Sobekflakmonkey

      Definitely not unplayable, I’m curious about what you have in your PC.

    • Simon

      I’m curious about your specs, if you say it’s unplayable. I have absolutely no problem.

    • dummies

      bwahaha, i love reading angry posts from gamers that spent thousands on a rig just for a game to run like shit. My rig isn’t much and I’m running this game on a radeon 7770. I’m getting great fps as long as I turn off all the nvidia settings. Suck it!

  • oliethegoalie0041

    Setting the game priority to high is alright. If you set it to real time the game will take priority to the point that your keyboard/mouse can slow down and not work properly. I’ve had that happen to me before and the only way was to restart my computer by pushing and holding the power button until it turned off.

  • adel

    I always get (0xc00000b) error PLEASE HELP! :'(

    • I suggest you to Install the Latest DirectX. This will solve the error 🙂


    The main reason I have sworn off day one launch purchase and pre-orders all together. Never again.

  • Samuel Waugh

    this article is bullshit, it does nothing and i find it troubling that you link to spyware and adware to update drivers, good thing im not computer illiterate.

    • FYI, Driver Scanner is not an adware or spyware. To avoid further errors that may occur if you install incompatible drivers, I have suggested driver scanner as the best option around.

      • DonkyBoY

        Sorry but uniblue make spyware and adware this is well known and have caused many users problems globally.

        While this is mostly releated to thier other softwares only an idiot would trust a software from a company known to put out malware.

        Dont belive me then google uniblue thier company name and add adware to it

        if you use thier programs your probably one of those that pays me to reinstall your PC for you back at the shop.

        • Nope bruh..!! I have been using them since 1 year and they are fine. Especially, Driver scanner has no issues 🙂

    • urmom666

      Go fuck yourself nerd this article has helped many other but not you so fucking what go play with ur sister and shut up.
