Raji : An Ancient Epic – Game Not Starting / Crashing How to Fix

I believe these few steps would definitely help fix the issue.  People did face the same issue with the demo and it did get fixed for a lot a of them .So lets see what we have to do :

Delete Save Game File :

This is perhaps the most important step . Normally a corrupt save file might cause the game to crash at launch . The first thing that we need to try is deleting the save file from your system. This is how you can do it :

  • You need to go to C drive and click on Users .
  • Then double click on the directory with your user name (could be any name)
  • Then select App Data. Now App Data could be Hidden so on the top of your screen click on View and check the option for Hidden Items.
  • Inside App Data you need to select Local and the look for a folder called Raji
  • Right click on that folder and Delete it .
  • Re Launch the game .

Check the System Requirements :

Now , a common cause for a game not starting up could be a hardware issue. Normally if you try to force run a game with system requirements that does not meet your system configuration, it would probably end up crashing a lot and at times it wont even launch . So lets see what is the requirement for Raji :

Minimum:

    • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
    • Processor: Intel Core i5-4400 (3.1 GHz) / AMD FX-6300 (3.5 GHz)
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: GeForce GTX 760 / AMD Radeon R9 270
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Storage: 6 GB available space

Recommended:

    • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
    • Processor: Intel Core i5-7400 (3.50 GHz) / AMD FX-8100 (2.8 GHz)
    • Memory: 16 GB RAM
    • Graphics: GeForce GTX 1060 / AMD RX 480
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Storage: 6 GB available space

You need to have atleast the minimum requirements for the game to run . Although the recommended setup is what you should be having if you want a smooth and interrupted gameplay.

Outdated Video Drivers are always a big no when it comes to performance of a game. Especially if the game is a new release. So make sure you always have your video drivers updated. Updates are meant to fix any issues with the current driver , thus giving you a much better performance ingame and probably fixing any crash related problems.

Steam allows to to verify and check for any missing game files which might be affecting the performance of a game . Any missing or corrupted file would be re downloaded . This is how you can do it :

NVIDIA Overlay should be Disabled :

The NVIDIA GeForce Experience is a pretty cool app by NVIDIA if you want to take snapshots and record in game footage. But the app also comes with a lot of other NVIDIA processes which tend to increase the CPU usage a lot . This could often lead to a crash . So it is recommended that you have it turned Off if you do not intend to take snapshots or record your gameplay.
