#1 Sid Meier’s Civilization Beyond Earth Crashes

This game has caused me many problems with my computer. Multiplayer is very buggy, and people get kicked alot. I am interested if there are any workarounds to all the crashes im experiencing. i can play arma 3 on around 60fps medium settings, no problems.

As you can see above, some players are complaining about crashes in the game. Some of them are random and some of them are during the intro cinematic. Below you can find solutions for both of them.

To fix the in-game crashes you need to update your GFX drivers and Windows, followed by un-installing the game. Once everything is done, reinstall the game, and it’ll probably fix the crashes.

If you are experiencing crashes during the cinematic, apply the workaround below:

  1. Press Alt + F4.
  2. When prompted: instead of exiting the game, select NO.
  3. You should now be at the main menu.

#2 Sid Meier’s Civilization Beyond Earth Resolution Issue

If you have a monitor with high refresh rate you might encounter an issue that locks your resolution. To fix that apply the steps below to your game.

  1. Uncheck the full-screen option and click apply to register the change.
  2. Choose the full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and pick your desired refresh rate (60 Hz recommended). Click apply.
  3. Then, revert back to full-screen mode.

If you do have AMD Mantle, quit the game and then apply these steps:

  1. Go to your Civilization: Beyond Earth file in My Games.
  2. Right-click on the GraphicsSettings.ini file and open it with Notepad. (NOTE Caution: altering .ini files can really mess with your game if you do something wrong or tinker with something you know much about.)
  3. Change the values of resolution (“WindowResX” and “WindowResY”) and refresh rate to the desired values.
  4. Restart the game.

#3 Sid Meier’s Civilization Beyond Earth Map is Blurry

There is a simple workaround to fix the blurriness of the map. Just go into options and disable the Depth of Field feature after that, exit the game and apply these steps:

  1. Go to your Civilization: Beyond Earth file in My Games.
  2. Right-click on the GraphicsSettings.ini file and open it with Notepad. (NOTE Caution: altering .ini files can really mess with your game if you do something wrong or tinker with something you know much about.)
  3. Change “EnableDoF = 1” to “EnableDoF = 0”.
  4. Save the file, then change the file’s properties to read-only.
  5. Restart the game.
