View Full Version : PhysXCore.dll problem, can't run the game

28th Jul 2015, 15:08

I started playing LiS a month ago and I could play first three episodes without any single bug. A couple of days after I wanted to replay episode 3 and I'm having this error since. I tried deleting everything and redownloading the game on Steam, it didn't work. I tried verify integrity thing twice, it didn't work. Can you please help me? Someone on Steam forums said he had a similar problem and he solved it by uninstall/reinstalling PhysX. I have no idea how to do that, I'm not really good with... computer stuff. I'm using Nvidia. Please help me. Thanks.

Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:.

For users on 400 series to 900 series nVidia GPUs. Ensure this driver is installed

For OLDER GeForce nVidia users, ensure this driver is installed.

We supply both of these in the <steamapps>\common\Life Is Strange\_CommonRedist\PhysX folder..

Possible Fix/Solution for non nVidia users[/b]
Go to add/remove programs under control Panel
Find `NVIDIA PhysX System Software x.xx.xxxx
Uninstall this program (may need to find the nVidia folder under Program files and delete the PhysX folder as it doesnt seem to remove all traces of itself
Either manually browse to the `commonredist` folder within Steamapps for Life is Strange and install the PhysX driver again (9.13 for older cards, 9.14 for newer) or simply reverify local files to retrigger pre-requisite installation from steam itself.
