How to increase FPS in ICARUS

Use our recommendations to optimize your PC. Update your video adapter driver (Nvidia, AMD, or Intel). Restart your computer. Lower the resolution and also use a lower level of visual effects in the graphics settings. It is not recommended to use various "boosters" and accelerators, because they may contain malware, and besides, their real usefulness in most cases is extremely insignificant. However, you only put your computer at risk of infection. Reinstall Windows. This method should be used as a last resort when other options have not worked. This can help, because after several years of work, the "operating system" grows outdated files and processes so much that it seriously slows down the execution of applications.

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 your network, try unplugging them. Crashes on startup with crash module names ntdll.dll and EZFRD64.DLL can (in particular for the latter) be related to USB controllers or PS2 to USB adapters (for various games).

If you get api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll errors on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, Microsoft has released a patch to fix this problem.

If you receive an error message MSVCR120.dll, go to C: \ Windows \ System 32 and search for "MSVCR120.dll". Delete this file. Go to C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ ICARUS \ _CommonRedist \ vcredist \ 2013 and run "vcredist_x64.exe". Then click "repair".

ICARUS black screen

A black screen can indicate various errors, however, most often this is due to a certain error on the part of the video card, and in some cases the culprit is the RAM module. Also, disable overclocking the processor and / or video card if used.

Close video recording programs

One of the reasons for the black screen can be video capture programs: Nvidia ShadowPlay, AMD ReLive, Ezvid and others

Remember the elementary rule: the fewer applications running concurrently with the game, the better. Remove all unnecessary things.

RAM diagnostics

In some cases, the culprit of the problem is the computer's RAM.
