Planet Zoo – an easy way to keep the game from crashing

Is Planet Zoo crashing? There’s a fix!

The first step is to ensure that your computer is current and up to the latest.

  • Disable Steam Cloud sync (google it to find out how to do it)
  • You can disable or permit the use associated with the cloud storage program you use
  • Remove the firewall and the antivirus (to check if they’re the source of the issue)
  • If you’re playing Steam offline, you should try making it online. If you’re online, consider switching off
  • Disable Spotify, Discord, RivaTuner, MSI Afterburner, GeForce Experience, etc

Direct Action

  1. Go to C:\Users\*Username\Saved Games\Frontier Developments\Planet Zoo\.
  2. Remove all files.
  3. You will likely lose your savefiles, but they might be the source of crashes. Backup them if you wish, but it’s best to test everything else by deleting the saved data first.
  4. Try playing your game with windows open.
  5. Steam Library | Right-click on Planet Zoo | Properties | Click “Launch Options” – select Windowed mode.
  6. Set the refresh rate of your monitor at 30 Hz. Set the game’s refresh rate to 30 Hz using the NVIDIA control panel.
  7. Try to launch Windows using Safe Mode (google for instructions on how to do this).
