This guide will show you how to fix the Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered crashes when loading a game or reloading a checkpoint from a save game.
What actually happens is that while playing the “Amazing” game, you might experience sudden closures to your computer’s desktop when you try to restart a challenge, reload after losing, or switch to different game content. This glitch often makes it hard to resume your game from where you left off, leading to frustration and potential loss of progress.
It seems like this issue has affected not just you but also many others, as seen in various forums. Despite encountering this problem around 50-60 times during your 100+ hours of playing Marvel’s Spider-Man and 40 hours of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, you still hold a fondness for the game.
But, the good news is that there are solutions to tackle this annoying glitch. I have a set of fixes that have worked for me in the past. Some require you to perform them every time the glitch occurs, while one approach helps minimize the impact of the glitch. Moreover, there’s an “official” fix recommended by Nixxes/Insomniac support, which might prove effective in resolving this issue.
If you’re interested, you can continue reading below to learn about these fixes and how they can help you enjoy your gaming experience without interruptions.
Manual Registry Editing
I want to make something clear: I didn’t create this method, all the credit for this quick and effective solution goes to the original creator, AM Game Goes On.
This is the best way for me to reload a crashing save or fix the DLC switching crash. You can find easy-to-copy-and-paste shortcuts and commands in the video’s description.
Let me tell you, messing with my computer’s graphics card registry file made me really nervous, and I hesitated to try this fix for some time. However, for me, it’s the most effective way to make the game work normally, at least for a little while. Just keep in mind that when you quit and restart the game, you might need to change the “TdrDelay” and “TdrLevel” values again and restart your computer to get it to work if your save starts acting up once more.
Lowering Graphics Options
Here’s another “quick” fix I’d suggest, and it’s quite simple. Before you start the game, try lowering the graphics settings. I’m not a computer expert, but it seems like this glitch might be related to graphics issues.
Now, I know some folks aren’t fans of game launchers, but in this case, it can be your ally. Use the launcher to change your graphics options to “Very Low” before starting the game again. Load your save as usual. Once you’re back in your problematic save and playing, you can increase the graphics settings to your preferred level. Fortunately, this adjustment is pretty easy and quick, and it won’t require you to restart the game.
I should mention that this method works for me about 70% of the time in files that I’ve been tinkering with. While it’s not a perfect solution and doesn’t involve messing with the registry or restarting your computer, a 70% success rate is better than having no fix at all.
How to Preven Crashing Progress Issues
Here’s a super important tip: Make sure to save your game manually all the time!
Before you do ANYTHING in the game, whether it’s starting a story mission or tackling an open world challenge, or even when you decide to quit the game, hit that save button.
This way, you’ll always have a saved version to quickly load if your main save gets messed up.
Every now and then, I might experience a crash if I try to save during a challenge or a story mission. So, it’s a good idea to use multiple save slots or just save before any action you take. You can “trust” the autosaves for checkpoints or retrying challenges, but having your own manual saves is a great safety net.
Restoring Save Game Backups
The technical support folks at Nixxes and Insomniac have suggested another fix, which is using backup saves from the save folder. This method has worked for me, as long as the backup save isn’t also having problems. However, it comes with a downside – you might lose 2 to 5 hours of game progress, depending on when the backup save was created. So, it’s not my favorite option, but it’s worth considering if you’re hesitant about editing the registry or if adjusting graphics settings doesn’t solve the issue for you.
