If you have encountered an issue regarding the game; ranging from crashes, not launching problems, resolution or fullscreen mode issues or other technical problems then look no further.

Make sure to read “Identify your problem” part to learn about what’s wrong with your game, or just look for the solution part if you already know the issue.

Any questions? leave them in the comments of the guide, read the FAQ part (if there is any) or contact me either through steam or add me on discord: V7X#5132

Covered Issues list

This guide will cover some of the most common problems that you might encounter.

PLEASE NOTE:

This guide will NOT cover any gameplay issues, bugs or similar problems.

You will only find technical issues such as crashes and other launching problems.

There are two parts for this guide:

Common Issue:

Game launches then immediately crashes (with or without error)

Other Issues:

-Mouse issues (mouse cannot go beyong a certain point on the screen, etc..)

-Resolution/Fullscreen problems (changing resolution or fullscreen mode from the in-game graphics settings does not actually update resolution or fullscreen mode)

Not launching (no errors)

If you press “Play” in your steam library or open DDS and it doesn’t launch at all, it means your game might have fullscreen problems.

To solve this, follow these steps:

1- Press windows key + R

2- type in the search box “%localappdata%”

3- Look for the folders:

DrugDealerSimulator -> Saved -> Config -> WindowsNoEditor

4- Find and open the file “GameUserSettings” using Notepad (right click, open with, select Notepad)

5- Find every setting that has fullscreen mode and change the number/value of it to 0, or change true to false (disable fullscreen mode)

6- Save the file, then restart DDS

Not launching (with errors)

If you press “Play” in your steam library or open DDS and it doesn’t launch at all but shows you an error after crashing, or opens with blackscreen then immediately crashes, then you probably have an 11th / 12th generation Intel cpu, if you don’t know what that means, then you should watch this video and follow the steps shown in it: (not my own video but thanks to the creator)

How to fix DDS not working in 11th gen intel CPUs

If you do not have an 11/12th gen intel CPU or that didn’t work, it might be a resolution issue then.

To fix this, follow the steps:

1- Press windows key + R

2- type in the search box “%localappdata%”

3- Look for the folders:

DrugDealerSimulator -> Saved -> Config -> WindowsNoEditor

4- Find and open the file “GameUserSettings” using Notepad (right click, open with, select Notepad)

5- Find every setting that has resolution and change the resolution to your own native resolution,

6- Save the file, then restart DDS

Can’t Change Resolution

If you can’t change resolutions from the in-game settings, try this:

1- Press windows key + R

2- type in the search box “%localappdata%”

3- Look for the folders:

DrugDealerSimulator -> Saved -> Config -> WindowsNoEditor

4- Find and open the file “GameUserSettings” using Notepad (right click, open with, select Notepad)

Once you have the config file open, look for “ResolutionSize” or similar options

Change whatever resolution you find it set to; to the resolution you’d like to use.

Save the file, and restart the game.

Can’t Change Fullscreen Mode

If you can’t make the game Fullscreen or Windowed, try this:

First, try using the F11 key on your keyboard, or alternatively use the shortcut [Alt + Enter]

If those don’t work consistantly, do this:

1- Press windows key + R

2- type in the search box “%localappdata%”

3- Look for the folders:

DrugDealerSimulator -> Saved -> Config -> WindowsNoEditor

4- Find and open the file “GameUserSettings” using Notepad (right click, open with, select Notepad)

Once you have the config file open, look for “FullscreenMode” option and disable it

To do this, change 1 to 0 and change True to False

Save the file and restart the game.

You should now be able to change fullscreen modes from the in-game settings.

Mouse Issues

If you face any of these problems:

-Can’t access some parts of the screen

-Can’t click some buttons

-UI is too crowded

-UI is outside of the screen/unreadable

Then you probably have set a very low or unusual resolution.

To change resolutions, head to the Graphics settings.

If that does not work, try this:

1- Press windows key + R

2- type in the search box “%localappdata%”

3- Look for the folders:

DrugDealerSimulator -> Saved -> Config -> WindowsNoEditor

4- Find and open the file “GameUserSettings” using Notepad (right click, open with, select Notepad)

Look for “ResolutionSize” or similar options, then change the written resolutions to your screen’s native resolutions (for example: 1920 x 1080 for FullHD)

Then save the file and restart the game.
