💻 Other related Mad Max issues

#1 Mad Max Lag – Some players are experiencing lag, stuttering, low fps, or fps drops because they are playing the game on old drivers.

“Is anyone else getting a random stutter while playing? My game is smooth 100-120 fps (gtx980/ 16go ram i5 3570k 4.2ghz) all the time but sometimes, not frequently, I have this annoying micro-freeze…”

  • To fix this issue, update your graphics card drivers, and after that disable V-sync as well.
  • If you are playing the game in windowed mode switch to fullscreen.

#2 Mad Max Game Saving Issues – The game sucks at saving screen or the game settings are not being saved

“I am having a problem where any time the game saves it will freeze for 3-5 seconds does anyone else have this problem?”

  • To solve the game being stuck on the saving screen issue, close any background application that you might be running and also verify the integrity cache of the game, as shown in the solution above.

#3 Mad Max Controller Issues – If you are facing crashing issues and you are playing with a controller this might be the problem.

  • This issue is due to the game files and controller drivers overlapping, to fix this unplug the controller and play with your mouse and keyboard.

We hope that our methods help you fix the Mad Max issues and that you will get to enjoy this classic apocalyptic game world.

      #1 – either your settings are too high for your computer’s ability….or your problem is related to #2..
      #2 – You downloaded a torrent / pirated software.

      Solution: visit the Steam website. Click on “STORE” at the top. Type “MAD MAX” in the “SEARCH” bar. Find the Mad Max game. Place it in your “CART”………..Then proceed with the purchase.

      Problem solved.
