How to Fix Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Crashing During Optimizing Shaders

Check Available Storage

Ensure that you have enough free storage space on the drive where the game is installed. Running out of space during shader optimization can lead to crashes.

Verify Game Files

In your Steam library, right-click on the game, go to Properties > Local Files, and click “Verify Integrity of Game Files.” This ensures that game files are complete and not corrupted.

Verify System Requirements

Make sure your system meets the game’s minimum and recommended requirements. Inadequate hardware may cause crashes during shader optimization.

  • Processor: Intel i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.20 GHz
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 65 GB available space
  • RAM: 16GB

Update Graphics Drivers

Ensure that your graphics drivers are up-to-date. Outdated or incompatible drivers can lead to crashes. Visit the official website of your GPU manufacturer to download the latest drivers.

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:

  1. Download Driver Booster.
  2. Install and run the software.
  3. Click the Scan button and let Driver Booster scan any outdated drivers on your PC.
  4. If the software found any outdated driver, click the Update Now button located on the upper left of the window.
  5. Wait until the Driver Booster finishes the driver download and installation process.

Note that your PC may restart several times depending on the drivers that are being updated. 

Increase Virtual Memory (Page File)

If you’re experiencing crashes due to insufficient memory, try increasing your system’s virtual memory (page file). Right-click on This PC/My Computer, go to Properties > Advanced System Settings > Performance Settings > Advanced > Change, and adjust the virtual memory size.

Run as Administrator

Right-click on the game’s executable or shortcut and select “Run as Administrator.” This ensures the game has the necessary permissions to perform shader optimization.

Disable Overlays and Background Apps

Disable overlays from programs like Discord, GeForce Experience, or Xbox Game Bar, as they may interfere with the game’s optimization process. Close unnecessary background applications.

Contact Support

If the issue persists, check the game’s official forums or support channels for specific assistance. Developers often release patches or updates to address such problems.

Final Words

By following these steps, you should be able to resolve crashes during the optimizing shaders phase in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. If the problem persists, reaching out to the game’s support channels is recommended. Enjoy your gaming experience!
