Baldur’s Gate 3 – Fix for DXGI Crash Under Nvidia

How to Fix DXGI Crash

1) In the games Properties add Launch Options and close Steam after saving:

--skip-launcher --vulkan

By skipping the launcher this way you will retain cloud sync and achievements.

I still experience crashes under DX11, Vulkan with further tuning did the trick.

2) In NVIDIA Control Panel, go to Manage 3D Settings, second tab – Program Settings.

Let it search for apps and choose bg3.exe from the list.

Change 2 settings to force them on to the game:

  • OpenGL GDI compatibility -> Prefer compatible
  • Vulkan/OpenGL present method -> Prefer layered on DXGI Swapchain

3) I would strongly recommend removing the contents of:

  • %LocalAppData%\Larian Studios\Baldur’s Gate 3\LevelCache\

Leave it empty so to exclude faults in previous files.

4) (Optional) Clear Shader Caches:

  • %LocalAppData%\NVIDIA\DXCache
  • %LocalAppData%\NVIDIA\GLCache
