The highly anticipated Resident Evil 4 remake is finally out! Fans are taken back to the haunting Spanish town where they must rescue the daughter of the US President. But many PC players have encountered the dreaded D3D error screen while playing the game. Let’s look at how to fix the D3D Error in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
How to Fix the D3D Error in Resident Evil 4 Remake
Many PC players are experiencing crashes while trying to play the new game. Since the game has no saved files, an error or crash means a loss of progress and you’ll have to start the game over. The most common issue is the D3D Error. This error is caused when the game overextends the amount of VRAM your system can provide. Players with an older system will have to turn down the game’s graphical settings and check if the problem still persists.
For PC players with advanced rigs, disabling Ray Tracing seems to be the current fix to the D3D error. Fans of the new reboots shouldn’t be that surprised that Resident Evil 4 can’t seem to handle Ray Tracking right out of the gate. Capcom’s previous reboots Resident Evil 2 and 3 experienced crashes because of a similar problem. PC players will have to be patient and hope that Capcom will be able to fix this recurring error with Ray Tracing and optimize the game to perform smoothly on PC.
Make your way to the options menu and click on Graphics. You can try and turn down Ray Tracing from high to medium or even low and try and run the game. We recommend turning it off completely as it seems to get rid of the D3D error the quickest.
Hopefully, you can now play the game without any further technical hiccups. Performance issues aside the Resident Evil 4 Remake looks like it just might live up to the hype.
