How to Fix Dirty Bomb Errors, Crashes, Launch Issues, FPS Drops


Dirty Bomb is a new free-to-play first person shooter that was released recently on Steam in Open Beta version and because of that it has some errors and issues.The most common Dirty Bomb errors are: Random Crashes, Launch Issues, FPS Drops, Server Connection Problems and other minor bugs.

The game takes first person shooters back to their purest roots in a fast-paced team game that will challenge even the most competent players. This game won’t hold your hand, in fact it is more likely to kick your teeth in. With no controller support or aim assist, all that lies between you and certain death is player skill and reaction. Work together or die alone in the most challenging team-based FPS.

Below you can see the errors of the game described and what other users reported about them and also how to fix the issues:

How to fix Dirty Bomb Errors:

1) Dirty Bomb Won’t Start

“I installed this game yesterday and played it just fine.Today when I launch it I get box with an image of Nader and a loading bar. When the loading bar gets full nothing happens.”

“I try to launch the game, the little anticheat thing bottom right corner pops up and then the loading thing in the middle of the screen and then disappears (crashing like) with no explanation or error.”

Some players reported that when they click Play in Steam nothing happens or that they get the antichet image and the loading bar of the game but after that nothing, the game doesn’t start.

Solution: To fix the launch issues of the game you need to follow our tutorial at the end of the post and to apply our patch to your game, after that Dirty Bomb will start and you will be able to play it.

2) The game crashes to desktop or random

“Anyone experiencing frequent crashes? I started yesterday, and played 11 hours without crashes, today it already crashed like, 6-7 times, already restarted my computer.”

“When i hit play it loads up the dirty bomb logo then it says Dirty Bomb not responding and it crashes.”

Solution: Follow the tutorial at the end of the post to fix this issue.

The game crashes to desktop when you try to load into a map or sometime it crashes randomly when playing. To fix this you need to delete this file: My Documents/My Games/UnrealEngine3/ShooterGame/Config/ShooterEngine.ini

3) Dirty Bomb Server Connection Error

“I’m having trouble connecting to competitive servers for the North American region. Help?”

“For some time now i can’t connect to the game server, why is that? Can anyone help me fix this please?”

This issue is because of the amount of players that are already connected to the game server.You can’t do anything to fix this at this moment, just wait until the server is not that full and try to connect then.

4) FPS Drops or Low FPS

“So in title screen I get a 40 max fps. In game I get 25 fps but used to get 30 max fps. Was Vsnyc always on?”
“My game runs really smoothly and then a random fps drop. I have no idea why this happens. My settings are all on low, please someone help me.”
Solution: Follow the tutorial below or the workaround below.
To fix the FPS problems try to change the game video settings to minimum and if that doesn’t help try to use the tip below that i found on Steam Dashboard:
“I get 60 fps sometimes it drops but this is what i did i went to %temp% and deleted all that don’t worry its all the stuff that you don’t need or use when you deleted it go into recycle and delete that. when your done with that delete any unnecessary processes google/games”
