ARK Survival Ascended: Fixed Render Thread Crash

How to fix this fix ASA

This is a fix for the famous “Render Thread” crash, which happens very frequently in some PCs.
It took me 5 days of testing different console commands and almost anything.

Launch the game and then face to the ground to avoid crash.

Configure the settings on the menu:

  • Disable HLOD = ON (right down)
  • UI => Disable Menu Transitions (left down)

On console command type this:

  • ark.VertexCountScaling 1

You need to repeat this command every time you launch the game.

It works with all settings in Medium but you can set:

  • Advanced Graphics to High and
  • Effects Quality in High

For more FPS use:

  • r.VolumetricCloud 0

I’ve tested this extensively with fly mode and hasn’t crashed.
My rig is an Amd Ryzen 5 3600 with a RTX 3060 Ti and 16 GB Ram.
Ask is installed into an M2 SSD.

If you cannot get past character creation screen, launch your game with -dx11 as launch param in order to create your character.
Then restart without any parameter.
