Meet Your Maker is one of the most popular games today, but it can be frustrating to experience crashing and other issues while playing it on your PC. Don’t worry, though, because we have the ultimate guide to help you fix these issues. In this beginner’s guide, we’ll provide you with recommended fixes that you can try if you’re experiencing Meet Your Maker crashing.

If you meet the requirements but still experience issues, read on for more recommended fixes.
Update Your Drivers
Another reason for Meet Your Maker crashing is an outdated graphics driver. We highly recommend getting the latest update for your PC to ensure the game runs smoothly. You can visit your hardware manufacturer’s official website to get the latest update for your device.
Updating drivers manually can be complicated and time-consuming. For a simpler method, we recommend using IObit’s Driver Booster to automatically download and fetch the latest and needed driver updates for your PC. Follow these steps to use the software:
- Download Driver Booster.
- Install and run the software.
- Click the Scan button and let Driver Booster scan any outdated drivers on your PC.
- If the software found any outdated driver, click the Update Now button located on the upper left of the window.
- Wait until the Driver Booster finished the driver download and installation process.
Note that your PC may restart several times depending on the drivers that are being updated. After the driver update completion, try running Meet Your Maker again to see if the issues have been fixed.
Verify Game Integrity
If you’ve tried the two methods above and still experience Meet Your Maker issues, try verifying the game integrity. Using this process, Steam will scan all the needed files or fix any corrupted files associated with Meet Your Maker.
Here’s how to verify game integrity:
- Open Steam and go to Library.
- Select Meet Your Maker from the game list on the left side.
- Right-click and select Properties.
- Click the Local Files tab.
- Click the Verify integrity of game files… button.
After clicking the verify button, wait until Steam completes the file verification for Meet Your Maker.
Close Background Applications
Resource-hogging applications installed on your PC can also cause Meet Your Maker crashing. We recommend closing any software that you’re not using while playing Meet Your Maker. Some of the most popular software that eats lots of resources while in the background are Media Players, web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome, and more. You can close these applications by using the Task Manager.
Set Graphics Settings to Low
Another method to fix Meet Your Maker crashing issues is by setting the graphics settings to low. Although it may not give you the best visual experience, it will help in making the game run more smoothly. To set the graphics settings to low, follow the steps below:
- Launch Meet Your Maker.
- Click on Options.
- Click on Video Settings.
- Set the graphics settings to Low.
- Click Apply.
Uninstall and Reinstall Meet Your Maker
If none of the above methods work, you can try uninstalling and reinstalling Meet Your Maker. Sometimes, there may be an issue with the installation of the game itself. To uninstall Meet Your Maker, follow the steps below:
- Open Steam.
- Right Click on Game
- Click on Uninstall.
We hope that these recommended fixes will help you resolve your Meet Your Maker crashing issues. Remember to check if your PC meets the minimum system requirements and to update your drivers regularly. If all else fails, you can always contact the official support team for assistance. Happy gaming!
