Fix Bugs, Errors and Not Starting: Fortnite Battle Royale

The Battle Royale mode for Fortnite is available on all major gaming platforms, PC, PS4 and Xbox One. However, a number of players have complained about some errors that can easily be fixed with simple steps. If you are a PC user, then you should check out the official system requirements beforehand, because if your PC doesn’t meet the system requirements then it can also lead to problems:

Launcher is Not Install

To play the Battle Royale mode on the PC, you need the Epic Games Launcher. The error message “the installation package is not supported by this processor type” appears whenever you try to install the launcher on a 32- bit operating system. You should know that you need a 64 bit system to play the PvP mode.

Fix Matchmaking Error

The matchmaking error occurs repeatedly. This may happen if the Fortnite servers are down. In the launcher, PC players can see above the play button whether the respective servers are currently online. If the servers are online, but the error occurs, change your DNS server to the following address: (Google).

PC players can try one more thing - and you need to configure DEP. The DEP is responsible for monitoring applications and containing viruses and security threats. From time to time, Windows' own DEP software does not recognize programs or games. In this case you should proceed as follows:

- Open the Control Panel and go to System and Security.

- Then continue by clicking System, Advanced System Settings, Advanced and Performance.

- Here's the data execution prevention now.

- Activate the second point here and add Fortnite to the exception.

- If this does not help, the DEP simply shuts down by typing bcdedit.exe / set {current} nx AlwaysOn into the Windows command line.

- The changes to the DEP don’t take effect until a reboot.

- If you want to reset this setting, enter bcdedit.exe in the command prompt. But you need administrator rights for this.

- Again, don’t forget to restart your PC.

Fortnite Battle Royale Does Not Load or Start

If the game doesn’t start, then there are several ways to fix this problem:

- First, restart the PC.

- Uninstall Fortnite and install it again. If you have save game progress from the PvE mode you may need to backup, you can find it here: % LOCALAPPDATA% \ FortniteGame \ Saved \ Config \ WindowsClient .

- Update your video driver.

- Check the system requirements.

- Updated DirectX.

- Updated Visual C ++.

Login Failed Error

This error can occur when you have connected your Epic Games account to multiple platforms. For example, if you connect the account to PSN and later to the PC, the error "Login failed" may appear. It also exists whenever you link PSN and Xbox Live to the account and you first played on Microsoft's console. The cause of the problem is that there is a cross-buy and save function between PC and PS4, but not for the Xbox. To stop the error, you need to do the following:

- Create a new Epic account. Incidentally, this is only possible on the PC, because you still have to make other settings.

- Log in now with your old account and disconnect the connection between your and your PSN account.

- Now connect your PSN account with the new Epic account.

- If you want to play on the PlayStation, log in with the new account now.

- If you play first on the PlayStation and then on the Xbox then do the same - but you need to connect the new account to Xbox Live - the other way round.

Error on Xbox: No Streaming Possible

The developers are still working on to fix this issue but there is an alternative solution:

- Start your Xbox and go to the settings.

- Select network and network settings here.

- Then it continues with the advanced settings.

- Search here for Alternative MAC Address and tap Delete.

- Restart the console.

Screen Freezes or Turns Black

Open the game on the PC in window mode. That should prevent freezing.
