Are you a PC gamer? Have you purchased No Man’s Sky? If the answer to both of those questions is yes, then you are probably really annoyed and very pissed off by the many problems the game has, cause you surely ran into some of them by now. Having just been released and one of the most anticipated games of the year, the space adventure has already run into trouble and many people have reported problems regarding performance and desperately asking for solutions.
The game’s developers, Hello Games, have released the following statement in a post on their Steam forum:
“Whilst many people are enjoying No Man’s Sky, we are tracking several issues, and we’re working hard to resolve them as soon as possible.”
They have also made a list of things they’re doing to make the issues solving process as smooth as possible for the users. The support page has been updated and you can find some solutions for the most common issues at http://www.no-mans-sky.com/2016/08/pc-support/ . The auto response at email@example.com has also been updated in order for the developers to get better feedback and for users to make suggestions about solving the problems in the game. Anyone who has mailed support has got a virtual ticket and is waiting in line to get a response. Hello Games say that many reports were very helpful and they’re working day and night to address the problems as soon as possible. They added they have responded to many players that were running the game at spec way below the minimum requirements.
The three most encountered reasons for crashes are said to be:
- If you are trying to play the game with an Intel card, you won’t be able to do so, as it is not supported.
- The game won’t work if your graphics card hasn’t got the latest drivers installed.
- The original version of No Man’s Sky did not include VC++ Redist 2010, but they have now made a patch regarding this issue.
Other reported problems included frame rate issues, and in some cases, Hello Games say that particular problem may solve itself after around 1 hour of gameplay, or the mouse malfunctioning when trying to play the game with a certain resolution, which gives some graphics cards trouble. A fix for this latter problem is said to be on the way.
No Man’s Sky has received negative reviews for the most part, and there are already more than 22000 reviews. But you know, that’s usually normal when a game is this anticipated and also the first of its kind.
