Dauntless Game Errors & Problems
Dauntless flickers green or pink
If you start the game and experience some green or pink flickering, blinking screen, you run into a known problem. Your monitor is getting the wrong color information. Good thing, there is a easy fix for it:
- Open up the NVIDIA Control Panel, for example by right-clicking your Desktop and choosing it from the context menu.
- Go to Change resolution in the side menu on the left under Display.
- Scroll down to the color settings and choose “Use NVIDIA color settings.” Make sure the Output color depth is set to 8 bpc.
- Apply the settings on the lower right and it should be fixed. Enjoy Dauntless without a weird and green flickering monitor.
Matchmaking in progress…
If you get this error, you are stuck in the process of logging in and joining the server after launching the game. This might be a problem on your or the server’s side.
Solution: Let it load for some minutes. If nothing happens, you’ll have to restart the game. Check Dauntless’ social channels, the discord or the forums to see if you’re alone or others have that problem too.
30 FPS – LOW FPS & BAD PERFORMANCE IN THE DAUNTLESS TUTORIAL
If you experience 28 to 30 FPS in the Dauntless tutorial, don’t be surprised. This is a known bug right now. As soon as the tutorial is over your FPS should be higher again. (It seems they will still be locked at 62 after that.) You should still experience way better performance after the tutorial. If you still have identically bad performance in the start area, you might need to restart the game.
Stuck in the loading screen after the Dauntless tutorial
If you think you’re stuck in the loading screen after the Dauntless tutorial, hang in there! It might take up to 10 minutes. Only restart the game if you’re really sure the servers are down, your game really froze or you get an error message. Don’t even tab out in the best case. If you choose to restart the game, keep in mind that you’ll have to create your character and play the tutorial again.
Dauntless Launcher & Login Issues
A quiet general error. If you don’t get any more information, there might just be some server problems. Consult the Dauntless Discord or other social channels to find out if it’s only you or others have the problem too.
All servers are busy
An error you run into if there are too many people trying to log-in. You should see an additional number of people in the queue in front of you.
There might also be an exact error code in the lower left, which should say “RateLimited” or “QueenBee” then.
Maintenance in progress
As you might already imagine, the servers are probably down right now and under maintenance. Check the Dauntless twitter for more information.
If you should have this error and you’re sure the servers are not down, open a ticket on playdauntless.com about your issue.
