2. Update Graphics Drivers

If the game has camera lags, probably it is not using the very best of the available GPU. One of the reasons could be an outdated graphics driver.

You should keep the drivers up-to-date for the best performance and compatibility with the latest software and games.

Here’s how to update the graphics driver:

  1. Press Windows + X buttons together and select Device Manager.
  2. Expand Display Adapters.
  3. Right-click on your graphics driver and select Update driver.
  4. Tap on Search automatically for drivers.

Windows will look for new drivers. In my observation, Windows automatic driver updater is not reliable. It always says “the best drivers for your device are already installed“, even when a new version is available. Hence, you should manually download the driver from the manufacturer’s website or use a one-click driver updater software such as Driver Booster.

3. Verify the Integrity of Game Files

If the A Plague Tale Requiem game has missing or corrupted files, the game either won’t run or may face multiple issues. Fortunately, Steam has the option to check for missing game files. It can also repair them.

  1. Launch Steam and click on Library.
  2. Right-click on A Plague Tale Requiem and select Properties.
  3. Tap on Installed files.
  4. Click Verify integrity of game files.

The process can take a few minutes. If there are missing files, Steam will repair them for you. Launch A Plague Tale Requiem thereafter to check if the camera lagging issue is fixed.

4. Clean Unnecessary Running Tasks

The game would lag if it can’t get the required resources. It happens when there are a lot of processes running on your PC. If they are taking a high amount of system resources (RAM, GPU, CPU), the game will lag.

You should therefore make sure that only necessary processes are running while you’re playing the game.

Tap the Windows + X buttons together and select Task Manager. Go to the Processes tab to see all running processes. Right-click on an unnecessary process and select End task to remove it from the memory. Repeat the process for other unnecessary tasks.

Next, you have to disable all unnecessary startup that automatically launches when you turn on your PC. For this, go to the Startup apps tab in Task Manager, right-click on the program which shouldn’t run at the startup, and select Disable. Do the same for all other unnecessary programs to reduce the system resource usage after your start the Windows.

Now, launch the game and check if the camera lagging issue is sorted out.

5. Change Your GPU Settings

Incorrect GPU settings won’t allow the game to fully utilize the power of GPU, and thus the game may lag. You must ensure the GPU settings are correct on your PC.

For Nvidia:

  1. Right-click on your desktop screen and select Nvidia Control Panel.
  2. Select 3D Settings and click Manage 3D Settings.
  3. Make sure these settings are in place:
    • Low Latency Mode: Ultra
    • Power Management Mode: Maximum Performance

For AMD:

  1. Open AMD Adrenalin Radeon software.
  2. Check these settings:
    • Radeon Anti-Lag: Enable
    • AMD Radeon Chill: Disable
    • Radeon Boost: Disable
    • Radeon Enhanced Sync: Enable
    • Morphological Antialiasing: Disable
    • Texture Filtering Quality: Performance

These settings strike a good balance between the FPS and performance. After making these changes, launch the game and check if the problem is fixed.
