Optimizing Hitman 3 on PC

This is a rather lengthy question. There are many things you can do to increase your FPS.


Hitman 3 Optimization Tips

Install the latest

Nvidia / AMD graphics card driver
Lower your graphics settings
The most important and simplest. Try lowering your graphics settings and setting the lowest resolution. Keep in mind that most of the performance is required for settings such as anti-aliasing, texture quality, shadow resolution, and various volumetric effects.

Use overclocking for your graphics card and processor
You can make your computer's components like the processor and graphics card run a little faster by overclocking. You can also overclock your RAM, but in most cases this has little performance impact. One of the most popular overclocker utilities is MSI Afterburner . Many modern motherboards already come with software in which you can increase the frequency of your video card or processor. Most processors can safely be overclocked by 5-15% of their original frequency. Please note that overclocking an integrated video card (for example, in laptops) is not always effective. You can find more information on the overclocking sites

Use the software from the manufacturer of the video card
NVIDIA GeForce Experience / AMD Gaming Evolved / Intel HD Graphics Control Panel - specialized software with a variety of functions in which you can find game optimization.


Use programs to clean your computer
There are various special programs to optimize and clean your PC. CCleaner is a trusted program for tweaking, optimizing and cleaning your system.

Defragmenting the hard drive
Open the properties of the hard drive. Open the "Tools" tab -> click the "Defragment (or optimize)" button. In the same place, in the properties, check and clean the disk.

NVIDIA / AMD
Control Panel Open NVIDIA (or AMD) Control Panel, select the Manage 3D Settings (NVIDIA) tab, or Games -> 3D Application Settings (AMD). You can set both global graphics processing settings here, and separately for Hitman 3. Or in the section "Adjusting image settings with preview" (for NVIDIA), then "User settings -> Performance" by dragging the slider all the way to the left.

Remove unnecessary programs from startup
Click the Start button (or the button on your keyboard with the Windows logo). Type msconfig into the search box, then press Enter. The system configuration window will open, select the "Startup" tab (in Win 10, press CTRL + ALT + DELETE and go to the same tab). Here is a list of programs that are automatically loaded with Windows. Try to disable unnecessary programs so that they do not take up memory (do not remove unknown applications from startup, otherwise you risk damaging the system startup). Reboot your computer. Disable temporarily programs (antivirus, Skype, etc.). Start Hitman 3.

Improving the efficiency of the OS

Hitman 3 black screen

A black screen can indicate various errors, but most often it refers to a specific problem on the part of the video system, and in some cases the culprit is the RAM bar. In addition, remove the overclocking of PC elements, provided that it is used.

Ways to solve this problem

Running Hitman 3 in Windowed Mode

Windowed mode via .exe

  1. Right click on the shortcut of the game on the desktop, and open "Properties"
  2. In the line "Object" after the quotes (") add" -windowed "
  3. "C: \ Games \ Hitman 3 \ Bin \ Win64 \ Hitman 3.exe" –windowed

Close video capture software

The black screen may be caused by video recording programs: Bandicam, PlayClaw, Dxtory and others

In addition, graphics effect applications can cause errors. For example: ReShade, Saturation Toggler, etc. Various modifications can also lead to an error. Remember the elementary rule: the fewer applications running simultaneously with the game, the better. Close all unnecessary.


RAM testing

The reason is sometimes the PC's RAM.

  1. Carry out diagnostics using specialized software to check the RAM. For example: RamSmash. For a way to check memory with the built-in utility in Windows 10, 8, 7, see here .
  2. Try installing memory sticks on other slots.
  3. If you have 2 or more planks, try leaving only one.
  4. Detailed instructions on memory diagnostics can be found on specialized sites.

Hitman 3 Not saved

The path to the game should not contain Russian letters, only Latin.

Hitman 3 crashes to the desktop

Try to temporarily disable your antivirus (especially with Avast!). Also see startup errors for tips.

Not enough memory error

Possible reasons: the game does not have enough RAM; there is not enough space on the hard disk for the paging file; you yourself configured the size of the paging file (or disabled it, or used software); some program is leaking memory (open Task Manager CTRL + ALT + DELETE and sort applications by memory consumption).

Hitman 3 not full screen

Press ALT + ENTER. Check the game settings (windowed mode, resolution, etc.). In some cases, changing the refresh rate (in the Nvidia control panel) from 60 Hz to 59 Hz (click "Apply"), and back to 60 Hz helps. Another way: also in the Nvidia control panel go to the section "Adjusting the size and position of the desktop." In the upper right corner, click "Restore".


Poor performance in Hitman 3

Of course, the best way to optimize is to upgrade the hardware, but before that you can try to take the following steps. Update your video driver. Reboot your computer. Set a lower resolution and select a low quality of effects in the Hitman 3 settings. It is not recommended to use various accelerators and "boosters", for the reason that their operation takes resources by itself, and besides, their real efficiency often leaves much to be desired. While you can infect your computer with a virus. Reinstall Windows. This option should be considered as a last resort when other methods do not work. The reason lies in the fact that over time, the "operating system" is overgrown with unnecessary services and unnecessary processes so much that the work of applications is noticeably slowed down.

DLL error in Hitman 3

Errors of the form: dll is missing, d3d11.dll, msvcp110.dll not found and others.

IMPORTANT : It is not recommended to download DLL files from third party sites in an attempt to replace your missing or damaged DLL files. Use this option only as a last resort.

Common actions for DLL errors :

  1. Reboot your computer
  2. Recover the deleted DLL file from the recycle bin (or use a file recovery program). Of course, this option is suitable if you deleted the file
  3. Scan your computer for viruses and malware
  4. Use system restore (see instructions on the internet)
  5. Reinstall Hitman 3
  6. Update your drivers
  7. Using the System File Checker in Windows 10 (see online instructions)
  8. Update Windows if there are patches
  9. Perform a clean install of Windows
  10. If the DLL error persists after a clean install of Windows, then the problem is not with the software, but with the components of your PC.

Errors with specific DLLs

MSVCP140.dll error message. You need to update / install the Visual C ++ package
This can be done at the link

If you have any USB controllers (or other devices) connected to the network, try disconnecting them. Crashes on startup with crash module names ntdll.dll and EZFRD64.DLL may (in particular for the latter) be related to USB controllers or PS2 to USB adapters (for various games).
