(Fixed) High On Life Crashing “LowLevelFatal” Error

Sometimes a problem in the High on life’s main files, especially in a folder named ‘Win64,’ can cause crashes. This folder is responsible for running the executable files of different tasks for the 64-bit operating system. This folder is like the brain for the game, and if anything in there is broken, the game will just quit and show an error that says ‘LowLevelFatal.’

Besides corrupted files, there’s another common issue that might be causing game crashes. It’s when High On Life is run with a feature called ‘Windows full-screen optimizations.’

While this feature is meant to make games run better by taking over the entire screen, it can sometimes interfere with the game’s own settings. This conflict can lead to the game stopping suddenly and displaying error messages. Disabling this feature could be the solution to stop these crashes.

1. Delete or Rename Win64

Since this error mostly occurs due to the corrupted content in the Win64 folder, we will start by deleting or renaming the Win64 folder. This is where the game keeps important files it needs to work on Windows computers. If something’s wrong here, the game might stop and show an error.

Here’s a quick fix: try changing the name of this ‘Win64’ folder or just delete it. Don’t worry, it’s not permanent — the game will make a new one when you start it again.

  1. Open Steam, go to Library, and right-click the High On Life.
  2. Hover Manage and click Browse local files. This will open up the game folder in the File Explorer.
  3. Navigate to Binaries > Engine > ThirdParty > OpenXR.
  4. Make a backup of this Win64 folder.
  5. Then, right-click the Win64 folder and click the Delete button.
  6. Once you have removed the folder, launch the game and check if the error is fixed or not.

2. Turn Off Full-Screen Optimizations

Since this feature is enabled by default, the Windows full-screen optimizations could conflict with the game’s optimization, causing it to crash or display fatal errors. Therefore, try disabling full-screen optimizations. To do so, follow the steps:

  1. Open Steam, right-click the High On Life, hover Manage, and click Browse local files.
  2. Make a right-click on the Oregon.exe file
  3. Select Properties, then go to the Compatibility tab.
  4. Put a check on the Disable fullscreen optimizations option.
  5. Once done, click Apply and click OK.
  6. Now launch the game by clicking the Oregon.exe and check whether you are encountering the low-level fatal error or not

3. Remove Overclock settings

Incorrect overclock settings overheat the hardware components, which often leads to game or system crashes. Therefore, if you have overclocked any of your hardware components, such as GPU, CPU, or even RAM, then we recommend reverting the overclock settings to check if the low-level fatal error persists or not.

For those who overclocked their RAM or CPU, navigate to the bios settings to reset the overclock settings.

  1. If you have overlooked your graphics card, open the application that you used to overclock.
  2. Click the Reset button to remove the overclock settings.
  3. Once done, launch the High On Life and check for the error.

4. Reinstall GPU drivers

Oftentimes, the game crashes due to outdated or corrupted graphics drivers. Graphics drivers play a significant role in providing smooth gameplay. Therefore, if your GPU drivers are outdated or corrupted, you will face crashes while playing High On Life.

When it comes to reinstalling GPU drivers, we recommend DDU over the device manager because DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) removes the drivers along with the registry files. To reinstall GPU drivers using DDU, follow the steps:

  1. Download Display Driver Uninstaller using the link.
  2. Once it is downloaded, extract the folder.
  3. Now open the extracted folder and run the DDU file.
  4. Click Extract and again open the extracted folder.
  5. Run the Display Driver Uninstaller application.
  6. Select the Device type and Device from the right pane.
  7. Then, click Clean and restart,
  8. Once your PC has restarted, go to the official website of your GPU manufacturer to download the GPU driver.
  9. Then, run the GPU driver installer and follow the simple on-screen instructions to install the GPU driver.
  10. Once done, restart your computer and check for the issue.

5. Delete the saved game files

If there is corruption in the saved game data, you will also encounter this type of issue. Therefore, try deleting the saved game files using the following steps.

Remember, deleting the saved game files will result in a loss of game progress. So if you don’t want to lose your game progress, you can manually decrease your graphics settings.

To delete the saved game files, follow the steps:

  1. Right-click the Start Menu and select Run from the listed options.
  2. Then type appdata and click OK to open the AppData folder.
  3. From here, navigate to the Local folder.
  4. Here delete the Oregon folder.
  5. Once done, launch the game and check if the problem persists or not.

6. Verify the game files

If you are still facing the issue, then you may have a corruption in your extracted game files, causing this issue. In this case, you can try verifying the game files, which will restore the corrupted files.

  1. Open Steam and navigate to the Library.
  2. Right-click the High On Life and select Properties.
  3. Click Local files from the left.
  4. Then, click the Verify Integrity Of Game files. This can take up to several munites.
  5. Once done, launch the game and check for the issue.
