Latest TEKKEN 7 patch causes hard crashes on some PCs, workaround found

Bandai Namco has released a brand new update for TEKKEN 7 that coincides with the release of the Geese DLC. However, it appears that a lot of PC gamers have been experiencing some hard crashes with this new patch. Thankfully though, Reddit’s member ‘Yukinari‘ has found a solution to these crashes.

Yukinari suggested that players should disable all network adapters other than the one that is actually connected to the internet. By doing this, a lot of gamers – that have been experiencing the hard crash issues – have been able to launch and play the game.

Some of the unused network adapters that players can disable are: VPN TAP adapter, vmware adapters, VirtualBox devices, wifi, and bluetooth network. Normally gamers should not have to disable such things. However, it appears that there some conflicts with this latest TEKKEN 7 patch. According to some other users, gamers only need to disable the adapters marked as ‘OAS’.

For what is worth, we have not experienced any crash issues with this latest update for TEKKEN 7. The game runs fine on our test machines, without the need to disable any network adapters. Still, if you are experiencing such issues, we strongly suggest giving this workaround a try!
