Square Enix is back with a new Early Access game that promises to recapture the core of classic competitive shooters & refines the ‘classic’ FPS feel for the next generation.

The game is called BATTALION 1944 and is being developed by competitive FPS players who grew up playing classic shooters and have worked to become one of the most experienced UE4 developers in the industry. As larger AAA developers are moving further and further away from old-school mechanics in favor of simplicity, we want to recapture what made classic FPS games feel so great. This means fluid, skilled gameplay within a fair and competitive battleground.

Early Access allows people who feel the same way we do about FPS to join the active development of the game, as we release patches and updates based on community feedback. If you’re okay to put up with missing features and unexpected bugs, but want to become a part of a growing community of refined FPS players, feel free to join our #FPSrevolution.”

#1 BATTALION 1944 Crashes

For some players, the game crashes to desktop after a few minutes of launching or it might crash while playing a match, at the final buzzer of the game, for example. Either way, this issue seems to be generated by your graphic card driver not being compatible with the game. To fix this issue check our solutions below.


  • You can try and update your graphic card driver if you don’t already have the latest version of it.
  • Make sure that you are using your dedicated GPU while playing.

#2 BATTALION 1944 Matchmaking Issues

Servers ‘Match Ready – Allocating Server’:

Everybody knows we’re having launch day matchmaking issues.
We’re working on improving the entire matchmaking experience and will be tweaking the system behind the scenes over the next few weeks.

The WORST thing you can do is cancel after receiving the ‘Match Ready – Allocating Server’ message. You have found a server at this stage and the server is being created for you. If yo cancel/quit at this point you’re leaving an empty server for the other players who did not quit and ruining the experience for other players.

Please ONLY cancel/quit if you need to update your Steam client after a Twitter/Discord PSA.

#3 BATTALION 1944 Flashing Green/Pink Screen

Issue: Flashing Green/Pink Screen on nvidia/windows 10

Status: Solved!

Solution: NVIDIA: NVIDIA Control Panel > Change resolution > Apply the following settings – Use NVIDIA colour settings > 8 bpc


Alternate Solution 1: You can change from full screen to borderless windowed mode. This is not an ideal fix as borderless windowed mode causes mouse input lag. Also not a permanent fix.

Alternate Solution 2: Change resolution from desired resolution to something else, then back to desired resolution. This is not a permanent fix and WILL reset if you alt-tab.

#4 BATTALION 1944 Black Screen

Some PC players have been reporting that they are experiencing Black Screen Issue when they run the game but, the sound is working fine.

One of the reasons why this issue has popped up for you might be game’s default resolution being higher than you Monitor’s native resolution.

Now there are two ways to do it. The first method is to run the game and when the black screen appears just press “ALT + Enter” this will make the game run in Windowed Mode. Just go the video settings and change the resolution to your monitor’s native resolution and you will be able to play the game in Fullscreen and the issue should resolve.

If this method doesn’t work for you then open up the config file for the game in the game’s folder and manually change the height and width to match your native resolution and the issue should resolve.

Another reason for this issue might be the outdated drivers for your GPU. Just update your drivers to the latest version or at least update to Game Ready driver for Battalion 1944, as the game ready drivers bring game-specific optimizations which might resolve the issue.

#5 BATTALION 1944 FPS / Frame Stuttering

Issue: Frame Stutters

Status: Ongoing optimisation.

Solution 1: Try enabling texture streaming. This should help alleviate the map load issues – but could cause more stuttering on slower RPM HDDs.

Solution 2: Turn ALL settings to LOW – lower resolution and resolution scale.

Solution 3: Disable vsync

Solution 4: As with many games, older computers will likely experience longer load times than others. Battalion has been built to take advantage of modern storage media. If you have the option to switch to a different installation hard or solid-state drive (SSD), you may see improved load times as a result.

#6 BATTALION 1944 Kicked back to main menu after joining a server browser server

Issue: I join a community server via the server browser and get licked back to the main menu seconds after joining.

Status: Identified. Not fixed.

Solution: No solution yet. We’re looking into why this is happening. We believe servers cannot currently host more than 10 players, hence the server browser looking like servers are not full when in fact they are ‘full’. We also believe this is not helped by the refresh rate of the server browser. We will be fixing this soon via a patch.

    I launch the game and I lag super badly on the main menu. My Pc specs are a ryzen 5 2600 and rtx 2060. I don’t understand exactly why I’m lagging, but It’s quite annoying. Once i get into a game it’s buttery smooth. Can anyone help?
