In this guide, we’ll explore the causes of this issue and provide practical solutions to overcome it.

How To Fix Tekken 8 Crashing (Steam)

Tekken 8 Out of Video Memory Error Explained

This error occurs when the game exhausts the available video memory on your graphics card, leading to performance issues or crashes. Here are steps to troubleshoot and fix the problem:

Adjust Launch Options on Steam

Some users have reported success by adjusting launch options on Steam. Right-click on Tekken 8 in your library, go to “Properties,” and in the “General” tab, click on “Set Launch Options.” Add the command -windowmode and see if it resolves the issue.

Check System Requirements:

Ensure that your PC meets or exceeds the system requirements for Tekken 8. Running the game on settings higher than your hardware can handle may result in out-of-memory errors. Lower the graphical settings if needed.

Update Graphics Drivers

Outdated or incompatible graphics drivers can contribute to memory-related errors. Visit the official website of your GPU manufacturer (NVIDIA or AMD) and download the latest drivers for your graphics card.

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 Click the Scan button and let Driver Booster scan any outdated drivers on your PC.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 If the software found any outdated driver, click the Update Now button located on the upper left of the window.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. 

Customize Virtual Memory Size

Adjusting virtual memory settings can sometimes help. Right-click on “This PC” or “My Computer,” go to “Properties,” select “Advanced system settings,” click on the “Advanced” tab, and then under “Performance,” click “Settings.” In the Performance Options window, go to the “Advanced” tab and click “Change” under Virtual Memory. Uncheck “Automatically manage paging file size for all drives” and set a custom size.

Verify Game Files

Corrupted game files can cause various errors, including out-of-memory issues. In Steam, right-click on Tekken 8, go to “Properties,” click on the “Local Files” tab, and select “Verify Integrity of Game Files.”

Update Windows

Ensure that your operating system is up-to-date. Press Windows + X on your keyboard, select “Settings,” go to “Update & Security,” and click on “Check for updates.”

Graphics Card Settings

Adjusting graphics card settings can sometimes alleviate memory-related issues. Open your graphics card control panel (NVIDIA Control Panel or AMD Radeon Settings) and experiment with different settings.

By following these steps, you should be able to troubleshoot and resolve the “Out of Video Memory” error in Tekken 8. If the problem persists, consider reaching out to the game’s support or community forums for further assistance.
