  1. Upon launching a fresh game, I encounter a fatal graphics bug. Nothing is visible to me other than a bright, flickering image. I used to be able to see the phone/tablet and the little map. The error happens each time the game is launched.

    • I can recommend the following for the time being:

      Update Graphics Drivers: Make sure the drivers for your graphics card are current. For the most recent driver installation and download, go to the websites of the manufacturers (NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel).
      Update Operating System: Ensure that all of the most recent patches and updates are installed on your operating system.

      Make sure your computer satisfies the game’s minimum system requirements by checking the minimum system requirements. Examine your system’s CPU, GPU, and RAM in comparison to the suggested specifications.

      Modify Graphics: To enhance performance, reduce the in-game graphics settings (including resolution, texture quality, and shadows). Try a variety of configurations to strike a balance between performance and visuals.
      Close Any Unnecessary Background Processes and Applications: Close any background processes or applications that might be using up CPU, memory, or network resources.
      Examine Game Files: Examine game files for integrity in order to find and fix any corrupted files that might be the source of problems.

      Update DirectX: Make sure you are running the most recent DirectX version on Windows. These libraries are essential for game graphics rendering.

      Reinstall the Game: Try reinstalling the game as a last option. Any corrupted files that might be causing issues can be fixed with this.
      Remove the AppData Folder for the Game: Corrupted configuration files can be fixed by deleting the game’s AppData folder. To do this, navigate to C:\Users[YourUsername]\AppData\Local\DrugDealerSimulator2 and delete the folder. Make sure to back up any important data before doing so.
