Update Graphics Drivers

Method 1: Verify the Integrity of Game Files

Did you know that Hyper Scape requires at least 30 GB storage space on your hard disk to store the game files? These files help in the game’s smooth functioning, and any disruption can result in Hyper Scape crashing on PC. This generally occurs after an update, which might leave missing or corrupted game files on your system. To resolve this issue, follow the steps mentioned below:

Step 1: Launch Uplay application and look for Games among the various tabs on the top.

Step 2: Click Games and locate Hyper Scape among the list of the games available.

Step 3: Next, click on the arrow available on the bottom right corner of your game tile and then choose Verify Files.

Step 4: This process will take some time to check the integrity of all the Hyper Scape game files on your system and replace the missing and corrupted ones.

Check if the issue has been resolved by launching Hyper Scape and playing it for a while.

Method 2: Use Administrator Mode

Microsoft has inculcated an administrative mode in Windows 10 that allows users to run a program with elevated rights and full system access to shared files and the required permissions. Once any application runs in admin mode, it does not face issues and does not crash unless your hardware is not compatible. To run any application in Admin mode, use the steps mentioned below:

Step 1: Locate the Hyper Scape main file or executable and make a right-click on it.

Step 2: From the contextual menu, click on properties, and a new box will popup.

Step 3: Select the Compatibility tab on the new box and locate Run this program as an administrator. Place a checkmark next to it.


Step 4: Click on Apply and then click on OK.

Step 5: Carry out the same steps for the executable file of your Uplay launcher as well.

This will ensure that Hyper Scape will launch as an administrator whenever you launch it next time. Check if the Hyper Scape crashing on PC has been resolved.

Method 3: Disable all Background Programs

One reason for Hyper Scape crashing on your system can be conflict or interference from other applications. It is impossible to identify the exact program that may cause this, but we can try to identify by closing all the background applications. Here are the steps to accomplish this:

Step 1: Make a right-click on the taskbar, and from the contextual menu, click on Task Manager.

Step 2: A new Task Manager window will open to locate the Start-up tab on the top row and click on it.

Step 3: A list of all the services that start up when you boot the computer will be displayed. Make a right-click on each one and click on Disable.


Step 4: Close the Task Manager and restart the computer. This will ensure that you have a faster reboot as no other applications will be initiated when the computer restarts.

Now try and launch the Hyper Scape and check if the issues have been resolved. If you do not face any issue, then follow the same steps and enable each application one by one, and this will help identify which application is not compatible with Hyper Scape.

Method 5:  Toggle V-Sync

Many users on Hyper Scape forums have reported toggling the V-Sync option to resolve Hyper Scape crashing issues. I am not sure why this works, but as this has been followed by many games worldwide, I thought it would be worth mentioning it. To turn on/off V-Sync, follow these steps:

Step 1: Make a right-click on any space on your desktop and wait for the contextual menu to appear.

Note: if your V-Sync was already ON, try turning it to OFF and check the game so see if the issue has been resolved.

Method 6:  Use Window Mode

There is a simple trick that has worked for some of the Hyper Scape gamers worldwide, and that is to play the game in a windowed mode rather than playing in a full-screen mode. The method is quite simple as it requires to launch the game and then press ALT + Enter on the keyboard to come out of the full-screen mode to a windows mode. Of course, you can keep your window maximized, which would not make much of a difference from the full screen.

Note: Those who cannot switch to windowed mode use the game’s graphic settings to look for an option that enables windowed mode.

Method 7:  Update Graphics Drivers

Drivers play an important part in maintaining your operating system’s performance. They act as translators between the hardware and the software, communicating the user’s command and relaying back the errors or other messages. It is important to keep your drivers updated and this can be done in three different methods:

Every graphic card manufacturer maintains an official website that contains the latest drivers. All you have to do is to know the exact model/version number of your graphics card and download the driver.

Update Driver using Device Manager

Microsoft has inculcated a driver updater tool in windows 10 that can search for the latest version of the driver required on your system from the Microsoft Servers. However, it does not locate updated drivers from the OEM websites. Each driver in your system can be manually updated by using the device manager.

Update Driver using Smart Driver Care

Smart drive Care is a driver updater software that automatically scans your computer’s hardware and then checks the drivers installed in your system. It then searches the internet for the latest update drivers available and installs them on to your system. The entire process is done within a few clicks and less time.
