Dark Soul 3 Fixes

Dark Souls 3 is pretty much optimized for PC and it does not have that much issues, but it does not mean that the game is flawless and plays smoothly on PC, the following are the known issues of Dark Souls 3 and their fixes.

Dark Souls 3 The Bonfire Lightning Crash Issue

Dark Souls 3 on PC appears to suffer from stability issues. The only problem is, it’s not exactly clear what triggers these crashes.

There are some negative reviews of Dark Souls 3 started popping up on Steam, most of them referring to constant crashes as a deal-breaker. The same can bee seen on the Steam forums, Reddit, and other social channels, all similarly filled with crash reports.

Whenever a player lighting up the bonfire the game crashes. For some other players, reaching the Firelink Shrine results in a crash. The consensus at the moment seems to link the starting class to these crashes. A lot of reports seem to indicate that if you pick up the knight class the game wont crash.

This doesn’t solve the issue for everyone, of course, and so others suggested turning the game’s Lighting setting to ‘Low’, something that’s also been widely reported to “fix” the issue.

Other fixes are on the next page….
