How To Fix Issues With Honkai Star Rail On PC

Without a doubt, one of the first things that you’ll want to check out is the graphics settings that are available. Turning things down just a notch shouldn’t produce a huge discrepancy in the overall visuals that this title brings to the table, but the fact that it should play smoother and with fewer jitters and spikes should be more than enough off of the bat.

If you’re hoping to keep things looking crispy, you could always try changing the overall resolution that your game is playing in. While you may have a 4K monitor, changing the resolution down to a more reasonable 1440p or even 1080p should smooth things out rather quickly.

If you have the patience for it, the easiest thing that you can do is wait for a new patch to drop, as that will likely contain plenty of small fixes and take some of the edge off of your graphics card and CPU. With Honkai Star Rail being available on a variety of platforms on launch, there may have been just a few oversights that can be quickly patched up.

If it’s been a little bit since you’ve powered off your PC, that may be one of the main culprits of the laggy gameplay. Give your computer a power nap and a quick restart to get things rolling properly once again, and you should be enjoying your trip on the Star Rail more than ever.
