Deliver Us Mars – solving technical problems

Sound issues, gamepad not working, “DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG” error and more

Deliver Us Mars proved to be the same walking sim with sparse puzzles as Deliver Us the Moon . The gameplay of the new game from the KeokeN Interactive studio has practically not evolved, but it allows you to enjoy the extraterrestrial landscapes of the Red Planet. Fortunately, there were few bugs on the release, except perhaps problems on the player’s side.

“Out of memory” error in Deliver Us Mars

Your PC is running out of RAM. The best solution is to increase the amount of RAM to at least 8 gigabytes. Increasing the swap file probably won’t help. Also, be sure to close your browser before launching any game. Especially if it has a large number of open tabs.

Launch the Audio Troubleshooter by right-clicking on the volume icon in the lower right corner of the desktop. Follow the instructions of the program.

Game freezes / “DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG” error / black screen

Perhaps the problem is overheating of the video card. Check if the fans of her cooling system are blocked by adjacent wires. If everything is in order with this, then try resetting the overclocking: go to the MSI Afterburner application and click the Reset button (if such a program is not installed, then the video card most likely did not overclock).
