TEKKEN 8 – Crash Fix for Polaris DXGI Error

Polaris DXGI Error Fix Guide


Hello, the following instructions will stop crashing for DXGI errors. This will fix the following:

  • DX12Device Removed Error! reason: %x (%s)

Open Regedit and navigate to registry key:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers

Add a new 32bit DWORD value with name TdrLevel and set the value to 0. Restart your computer. Profit.

What is TdrLevel?

TDR stands for Timeout Detection and Recovery. This is a feature of the Windows operating system which detects response problems from a graphics card, and recovers to a functional desktop by resetting the card. If the operating system does not receive a response from a graphics card within a certain amount of time (default is 2 seconds), the operating system resets the graphics card.

Before TDR existed, problems of this nature would have resulted in a system freeze and required a reboot of the operating system. If TDR is enabled and you see the TDR error message, “Display driver stopped responding and has recovered,” this means that the Windows operating system reset the display driver.

What is happening with the game and this error?

The game is causing a false-positive communication issue between the GFX card and Windows which is causing Windows to think that the GFX has been unresponsive for over 2 seconds, even though the game is running fine and the error pops in a split second regardless of this. Setting TdrLevel to zero disables this function, thus bypassing this erroneous error and allows you to play the game crash free.
