  3. Have Fun



  • STEP 1 : Make sure you have a green smiley in Tunngle (open port) and a stable connection. You should open port 11155 in your router settings to get a green smiley.
  • STEP 2 : Go to in-game and try to join lobbies with a green name. If you see mostly blue named lobbies, you can make them green with this trick: 1. Create your own lobby by clicking on an empty heist contract. 2. Leave your lobby again (quit to main menu). 3. Try joining the lobby with a green name now!
  • Restart Tunngle or your PC
  • Install this Custom Launcher[28] in your gamefolder, Download and Extract the HotFix[29] in your gamefolder, launch Launcher.exe (instead of RVTLauncher.exe) and select OFFLINE/LAN !! Do NOT click on Online !! In game: select as usual and you will see the lobbies
  • Make sure to update your computers' drivers to the latest version, especially graphics card drivers!
  • Ensure you didn't get any Errors during updating. When you encounter an error during updating, reinstall the failed update before continuing.
  • Last resort: Reinstall the Game and Updates


  • When you get an error like "The Program can't start because MSVCR110.dll is missing from your computer." Simply install THIS to fix your problem!


  • Run the game as administrator
  • Find the file SmartSteamEmu.ini and open it with notepad. Scroll down to the line 'EnableInGameVoice 1'. Change the 1 into a 0 and save the file. Try starting the game again as adminstrator.


  • Port_Forward UDP Port 11155 in your Router
  • Configure your Firewall to allow both 'payday2_win32_release.exe' and 'RVTLauncher.exe'


Note : You need to show hidden files and folders in order to see some of the folders used in this "HOW TO FIX". Not sure how to do this? Type in google: 'how to show hidden files'

If you are experiencing black screen and instant crash on launching the game or you are totally unable to start the game, the following fix may solve the issue for you :

  1. Make sure to update your computers' drivers to the latest version

Still getting the issue ?

  1. Find the file named “renderer_setting.xml” in C:\Users\\AppData\Local\PAYDAY 2.
  2. Open this file using any text editor.
  3. After opening the file, you need to find the following section:
    <d3d_device adapter_index = “0″
    resolution = “1920 1080″
    windowed = “false”
    refresh_rate = “60″
  4. These settings should match your local parameters. For instance, if your desktop resolution is 1200*800, you should choose the same resolution here. Refresh rate should also match as it also create problems sometimes. You can also choose to run the game in windowed mode first and then change the settings afterwards. In order to run the game in windowed mode, change the value “false” to “true”.


  1. Browse to your Game Installfolder
  2. Edit the "SmartSteamEmu.ini" File
  3. Search for the line "PersonaName =" and type in your own nickname there!
  4. Still problems? Set the following Files to "read only" (Rightclick -> Properties):


  1. Browse to your Game Folder
  2. Open "game.ver" with any text editor
  3. Now you can see the version of the game:
    • Update 28 = 1.9.3

    • Update 29.1 = 1.10.1

ATTENTION: This guide is made for players who already have a savegame on Update 27.1 and want to transfer it to further updates!

  4. Uninstall your Payday 2 game (Update 27.1)!!! (Make sure you have your savegame backup ready!)
  5. Install 'PAYDAY.2.v1.9.3.Incl.All.DLC-REVOLT' (This exact version is required)
    Note: Don't apply any of the Fixed Files from the Game installation or Updates folders !! Don't copy/paste any other content in your gamefolder than those expressly noted in this Guide! Only use the update files like described here (nothing else!)
