If your game is crashing on launch or just won't launch, firstly please confirm that your machine's specifications meet our minimum requirements:

If you are running on lower-specs, and the game is crashing you may want to try an alternative launch option. We are trialing this and cannot confirm that it will work, it may be unstable and could crash at any point during gameplay.
- Right-click on "Ranch Simulator" in your Steam library
- Select ''Properties''
- In "General" enter this launch argument: -dx11
If you are playing a multiplayer game, we recommend that the Host is to be the player with the highest specifications in the group.
