If your PC passes with flying colors and isn’t lacking in horsepower to run this game, then the problem lies elsewhere. So let’s dive into the Immortals of Aveum crashing fixes next.
Run Immortals of Aveum In Administrator Mode
Games often run into crashing issues, most prominently when they can’t properly access your system resources. The same is the case with Immortals of Aveum, as when it lacks proper privileges, it fails to communicate with your PC resulting in a crash. You can easily get this fixed by simply running the game as an administrator to bypass any restrictions. Here’s how:
EA App is the latest game client from EA that will eventually replace the legacy client Origin. Immortals on Aveum is on the EA App, and here’s how you can run it as an admin:
- First, you need to locate the local files for Immortals of Aveum. To locate it, you’ll need to access its local installation folder. The best way to find it is by launching the EA App.
- Once the app is launched, click on your username in the top-right corner of the screen and open up settings.
- After accessing the settings, you’ll need to head over to the download tab and then check under the install location to find the parent installation folder for the EA App.
- Now that you know where the games are installed, simply locate the folder by going into Windows Explorer. Once you’re in the main EA App install folder, locate the Immortals of Aveum directory, and here you’ll find the main executable.
- Right-click on the main executable file and select its properties.
- Inside the properties, head over to the compatibility tab.
- Here, you simply need to toggle on Run This Program As An Administrator and Disable Fullscreen Optimizations options.
- After you’re done, simply click on to save changes.
Now you can launch Immortals of Aveum from the desktop or through the EA App, and the game will always launch with administrative privileges. If your crashing issue was also occurring due to the fullscreen optimization feature, then it’ll cease to happen.
Immortals of Aveum is also available on Steam, and here’s how you can launch it as an administrator:
- Launch Steam, go to your Game Library, and locate Immortals of Aveum.
- Once you find it, simply right-click on the game and hover over to the manage option.
- In the context menu, you need to click on the Browse Local Files, and you’ll be taken into Windows Explorer and into the main installation directory.
- Now here, you’ll essentially need to repeat the same steps as shown above. Right-click on it, and access properties; in the compatibility tab, you’ll need to checkmark both run as administrator and disable fullscreen optimizations. After that, click OK, and you’re golden.
Verify Game Files
Game files can often get corrupted or go missing due to various reasons, including your antivirus solution or any third-party system cleaners. Missing files lead to the game either crashing on startup or simply not launching at all. So instead of telling you to re-download the entire game, you can simply verify the game files on both Steam and EA App to fix the Immortals of Aveum crashing issue. Here’s how:
- You’ll need to launch Steam and then locate Immortals of Aveum in the Game Library.
- Once you locate it, simply right-click on it and head over to its properties.
- Inside the properties, you’ll need to access the installed files section on the left and then click on the Verify Integrity Of Game files option on the right side.
As you click on the Verify Integrity of Game Files option, Steam will start analyzing the installation folder of Immortals of Aveum and check for any missing files. Once it detects if any files have gone corrupted or missing, it’ll automatically start to redownload those files and replace them in the installation directory once finished. You’ll see the number of files that were downloaded and replaced in your game directory. And that’s it. Now you can start playing the game without hitches.
Similar to Steam, EA App also has a repair game files feature that you can access fairly easily. Here’s how to do it:
- First, open up the EA App, and then head over to the My Collection tab to find your installed and owned games.
- Here, you need to locate the Immortals of Aveum. Once found, simply click on its options (3 dots) and select the Repair option.
As you click repair, it’ll scan your install directory and find out which files are missing from it or have gone corrupted. After that, it’ll start downloading and replacing them in your installation directory. Once the process completes, try relaunching Immortals of Aveum to see if the game is functioning normally.
Clear DirectX Shader Cache
Next up on our fix for Immortals of Aveum crashing is clearing up the DirectX shader cache. EA games crashing have been fixed with this method, and I recommend doing the same for this game as well. Here’s how to clear up DirectX Shader Cache:
- First, you have to open up Windows Setthinsg through the shortcut key WIN + I.
- After the Windows settings open up, select the Storage Settings.
- Inside the Storage Settings, you’ll need to open up the Temporary Files section.
- After entering the Storage Settings, you need to select the Temporary Files section.
- Here, you need to check the DirectX Shader Cache option first, then proceed to remove it by clicking on the remove button on top.
After you’re done clearing the DirectX Shader Cache, I recommend that you reboot your PC to finalize this process. This method will remove all the DirectX Shader Cache built up in your PC. Once you launch and start playing games again, your GPU will start building and storing new cache in your system that’s not problematic. You’ll even start seeing improvements in the game’s performance this way.
Clear EA Application Cache
If you’re playing Immortals of Aveum through the EA App client, then you need to clear its cache. EA App has a stored-up cache, which is similar to Steam’s download cache. This cache also builds up over time and causes problems for your games. It’s best that you clear it to resolve the Immortals of Aveum crashing issue. Here’s how to do it:
- First, you need to launch the EA App client from the Windows Search.
- Once it opens up, you simply have to click on the hamburger menu button on the top-left corner of the app.
- Once the context menu opens, hover over the help option and click on App Recovery.
- Clicking on the App Recovery option will open up a new window. Here, you need to click on the Clear Cache button to clear the EA Application Cache.
After you’ve removed the EA App’s cache, it’ll make the application itself more responsive. Make sure to reboot the application after doing this to experience the stability improvements. Now launch Immortals of Aveum from the application and check if you’re still experiencing the Immortals of Aveum crashing issue or not.
Reduce The Graphics Settings
Immortals of Aveum puts a heavy load on your GPU, especially when it’s rendering all those cool particle effects and magical explosions. This stress on the GPU and CPU can cause heat problems, and the PC might decide to freeze, stutter, or even crash your game.
So, if you’re experiencing crashing often, first, you need to check your GPU temps with either a built-in utility depending on whether you have an Nvidia GPU or an AMD one. You can also use third-party tools like MSI afterburner or GPUTemp.
If the temperatures are rising, your PC will throttle your performance and eventually crash the game. You can reduce the following settings to avoid this from happening:
- Use DLSS or FSR 2 upscalers
- Switch Global Illumination Quality to Low
- Reflection Quality should be Low
- Set Anisotropic Filtering to Off
- You should set the Shadow Mesh Quality and Resolution to Low
- Switch Render Target Pool Size from 1000 to 200
These will not only make a significant difference in your performance but also reduce a tremendous amount of stress off your GPU. So your GPU temps will remain within normal operating temperature, preventing any crashing or stuttering.
Update GPU Drivers
Immortals of Aveum is one of the latest games of 2023, and there’s a high chance that your GPU manufacturer has released a GPU driver update for it. These GPU driver updates contain helpful fixes that improve the game’s performance and stability on your PC. You might be experiencing Immortals of Aveum crashing issues due to outdated GPU drivers, and we’re going to help you update your drivers:
You can update your Nvidia GPU driver in some ways. Whether you download a driver update package from the GeForce Drivers website or use the GeForce Experience utility to update your drivers easily. We’ll be talking about the latter method as it’s the easiest way to go about this. Let’s get on to it:
- To start things off, you need to launch the GeForce Experience application from either the desktop or through the taskbar.
- Once the application opens up, you need to head over to the Drivers tab and check whether there are any new updates available for you to download.
- If there are any updates for you to install, all you need to do is click on the download button to start downloading them. After the updates have been downloaded, select the Express Installation option to install the update immediately.
- If you don’t see any updates, click on the Check For Updates button just to be sure. If still no update pops up, then your GPU already has the latest drivers.
- If you have installed any new updates, I recommend restarting your PC to finalize the update installation process.
After your Nvidia GPU has successfully been updated to the latest drivers, this is bound to resolve any crashing or performance issues caused by outdated drivers.

AMD is a major GPU manufacturer that also takes care of its players by releasing critical updates right before a major game’s release. So I recommend that you install them through the AMD Radeon software. Here’s how you can update your AMD GPU to the latest drivers and fix any crashing issues you’re experiencing:
- First, you need to open the AMD Radeon software from either the desktop or the taskbar below.
- Inside the software, you need to check the right side in the drivers updates section.
- If there are any updates available here, simply click on the install button under the recommended driver version to start downloading it. After it’s downloaded, the AMD installation wizard will take care of the installation process.
- If there aren’t any updates, I recommend that you still click on the check for updates button to make sure there are any updates available.
- After you’re done, make sure to reboot your PC to install the driver properly.
With this, your latest AMD driver is successfully installed. Now you can try launching the Immortals of Aveum and check whether the game is crashing or not. The crashes should have been resolved by now if the outdated driver was the reason.

Disable Third-Party Application Overlays
There are applications installed on your PC that offer in-game overlays providing various functionality. These overlays are always active whether you press their hotkey and activate them or not. This means they’re always using your resources and degrading your performance.
Now this is where it gets bad. Some of these overlays can cause conflict with your games, causing them to crash or even freeze. These overlays are just what might be responsible for the Immortals of Aveum crashing issues. So, the best course of action is to disable these in-game overlays. I’ll show you how to disable overlays of some popular applications that you might have installed on your PC right now. Here’s how to do it:
Steam has recently revamped its in-game overlay, and it does so much more now than just viewing your online friends and chatting with them. It’s a really great overlay, but it’s wasteful if you don’t get the need for it. So here’s how to disable it:
Steam has an in-game overlay that stays active while playing Steam games. Since you’re playing Dave the Diver on Steam, you’ll have it active as well. If you aren’t using it, but it’s still active in the background, I’d recommend that you disable it. Here’s how to do it:
- Launch the Steam application and look up Immortals of Aveum in your game library.
- Once you find it, right-click on it and go to its properties.
- After accessing the properties, you’ll see an option called Enable Steam Overlay while in-game in the general tab. You simply need to toggle it off.
- After you’re done, simply close Steam.
Now you’ve disabled the Steam in-game overlay for immortals of Aveum only. Steam overlay is activated for every game individually. So if you want to disable Steam overlay for all games, you need to turn it off one by one for all of them.
EA App has an in-game overlay that lets you interact with friends and have a quick chat with them as well as send and receive invites from them. It’s a helpful overlay but can cause problems with immortals of Aveum, so here’s how to turn it off:
- First, you need to launch the EA App from the taskbar.
- Once it opens up, click on your username in the top-right corner of the screen and go to settings.
- Inside the settings, go to the application tab and scroll down until you see the in-game overlay option. Simply toggle it off.
- Once you’re done, exit out of the EA Application.
Now you can launch Immortals of Aveum right from the client and check whether you’re experiencing the crashing issue or not.
Nvidia In-Game Overlay (Shadowplay)
Nvidia’s In-game overlay, also known as Shadowplay for a long time, is one of the oldest in-game overlays in the market. It helps you capture screenshots and record clips as well monitor your PC hardware while in-game. However, it can cause conflicts with your games, so here’s how you can disable it.
- You’ll first have to launch Nvidia GeForce Experience from the taskbar.
- Once it opens up, you’ll need to head over to the settings icon (gear icon) in the top-left corner of the application window.
- Inside the settings, you’ll need to scroll down until you see the option of In-Game Overlay. Simply toggle it off.
Once you’re done, you’re golden. Nvidia overlay will be disabled for all games that you play on your PC, including Immortals of Aveum.
AMD Radeon Software
Similar to Nvidia’s In-Game Overlay, AMD also offers its proprietary overlay for all your gaming needs. However, it too can cause clashes with your games, causing them to crash, not to mention the resource usage that degrades gaming performance. Here’s how you can disable it:
- You’ll need to access the AMD’s in-game overlay by hitting he shortcut key ALT + R.
- Here, you’ll need to access Radeon settings by clicking on the gear icon.
- Once you’re in the Radeon Settings, you need to head over to the Preference section and hop into the General Settings.
- Inside the General Settings, you can simply toggle the In-Game Overlay off.
And there you go, you’ve successfully disabled the AMD in-game overlay for all the games. Now you can launch immortals of Aveum, and you hopefully won’t have any issues while playing it.
Discord Overlay (previously called Overwolf) is a helpful utility that lets you monitor the Discord voice channel that you’re currently active in. It lets you see who’s speaking at any given moment. However, if you’re not using Discord while playing Immortals of Aveum, then best to disable it. Here’s how to do it::
- You need to open up Discord from the taskbar in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
- Here, you need to access its settings with the gear icon right next to your username and display picture.
- Inside the settings, you’ll need to scroll down and access the Game Overlay tab.
- Now, you’ll see an option to Enable In-Game Overlay. Simply toggle it off.
With this, Discord Overlay will be deactivated for every game you play. So, you can proceed to launch your game, and hopefully, you won’t be facing the Immortals of Aveum crashing issue anymore if it was caused by this overlay.
Xbox Game Bar
Xbox Game Bar was introduced back in Windows 10 as a gaming-centric utility to help you capture and record in-game moments. Now, it’s a resource-intensive program that also clashes with games from time to time which can lead to crashing and freezing. So here’s how you can turn it off from your Windows PC.
- First things first, open up Windows Settings by hitting the shortcut key WIN + I.
- In here, you need to head over to the gaming tab and then inside the Captures menu.
- Here, you need to uncheck all the options inside.
- After you finish disabling all the options here, you need to go into the Apps tab and then into the Apps and Features section.
- Here, you see a search bar at the bottom right under the App List section. In the search bar, you need to type Xbox Game Bar.
- After you type it up, the application will appear in the results. Click on the 3 dots next to it to open its menu and then head into the advanced options.
- Inside the advanced options, you’ll see a setting called Let This App Run In The Background right under Background App Permissions. You simply need to set it to never.
- After you’re done, scroll down and terminate the application to stop its background process instantly.
And that’s it. That’s all you need to do to disable the Xbox Game Bar for all of your games on your PC.
Whitelist Immortals Of Aveum Game Directory From Antivirus
Your antivirus software is one of the major reasons behind the Immortals of Aveum crashing issue. Antivirus restricts the game’s access to your system hardware which can cause conflicts resulting in the crashes. So to see whether your antivirus is really the culprit behind this issue, we need to disable it for a few minutes temporarily. Here’s how to do it.
- You need to open up Windows Security settings by either the Windows Settings or simply type it into the Windows Search and click on the first link.
- Once you’re inside the settings, you need to head over to the Virus and Threat Protection tab. Here, you need to click on the Manage Settings.
- Here, you simply need to turn off the Real-Time Protection which will disable all the antivirus shields.
When you turn off Real-Time Protection, it will deactivate your Windows Defender from interfering with your system programs. Now quickly launch Immortals of Aveum and check whether the game’s functioning properly or not. If you aren’t experiencing the Immortals of Aveum crashing issue anymore, then antivirus was the root of your problem.
Now, we can’t leave Windows Defender disabled as it can be a security risk. So instead of disabling Windows Defender altogether, we can instead whitelist the game directory so Windows Defender doesn’t interfere with it but continues to protect your PC. Here’s how to do it:
- As you’re already inside the Windows Defender settings, you simply need to scroll to the end and click on Add or Remove Exclusions under the Exclusions Settings.
- After you’re inside the exclusions settings, you need to click on +Add an Exclusion and select the folder option.
- All you need to do here is browse the Immortals of Aveum installation folder and add it to the exclusions list.
This will add the Immortals of Aveum folder in the exclusions, and Windows Defender won’t be causing any further problems for it. You can simply turn the Real-Time Protection component on so it can continue to protect your PC.
Remove Overclocking Profile
If you’re using a PC with overclockable components, there’s a high chance you’re overclocking it. Now it’s a great way to utilize your current components to the max and get impressive performance in games. However, some games might not fare well with your overclocking profile and crash instead.
So, to avoid this issue, I recommend that you revert your CPU and GPU clock speeds to default. You can do this depending on the method you used for overclocking, whether it’s a third-party application or from the UEFI/BIOS.
After you’ve restored your system clock speeds, try relaunching the game and check whether you’re still experiencing the Immortals of Aveum crashing issue or not. Chances are, it’ll be fixed after you’re done removing our overclocking profile.
Did We Finally Help You Resolve The Crashing Issue?
And there you go. We’ve listed every possible fix there is to resolving the Immortals of Aveum crashing issue on PC. The game requires a really good PC to run due to it being built on the latest and greatest Unreal Engine 5. So, one of the fixes above is to resolve this issue, letting you enjoy the game without hitches. However, if you’re still experiencing issues with the game despite applying all the fixes, I recommend you contact the game’s official support.
You can fix the Immortals of Aveum crashing issue by verifying its game files, whitelisting its game folder from antivirus, disabling your overclocking profile, and running the game as an admin.
Immortals of Aveum is crashing due to faulty or missing game files, restrictions from antivirus, faulty cache, outdated GPU drivers, and bad overclocking profiles.
Immortals of Aveum doesn’t have as many issues as we’ve seen in the recent PC games. However, the game isn’t optimized well for low to mid-range PCs and also has bugs that need to be ironed out by a patch or two.
