Black screen

First of all check the Steam cache. Also through the game’s graphics settings, run it in window mode.

Slow loading

As there is a huge number of files which are bound to be loaded for us to enjoy the game, loading takes longer. An option is to increase your RAM and let the game load.

Crash while loading

Please verify the minimum system requirements first. If you have an antivirus program, disable it and try to run this game with no other windows open. The Forest runs better on a 64-bit version. If you still cant fix the problem, try to run the game on lower graphic settings.

Sound issues

The ultimate solution is to re-install the game. Also update your drivers.

Cannot save game

Try to run this game in the administrator account, or by right clicking the icon select “run as administrator”.

Game crashes midway

This is the best example of overheating. Any program can crash midway if your system gets overheated. Try to wait for a couple of minutes to let your system cool. Check if your PC fan is in proper order.

Textures issues

Disable the SLI/Crossfire graphics card mode. Check your graphics card for overheating. Also upgrade it if possible.
