Fix Death's Door Stuttering and Micro-Stutter - Game Appears Shakey

Death’s Door is the latest title from the Indie developer Acid Nerve and published by Devolver Digital. The game is currently among the top five games on Steam with Positive reviews. While the game is a lot of fun, there are a few issues such as the problem with the controller and the game stuttering. For a lot of players, Death’s Door stutters and the game appears shaky. If you have encountered these problems, we have some solutions you can try.  

How to Fix Death’s Door Micro-Stuttering

The most likely cause of the game stuttering is the poor optimization of the game. But, that does not mean you cannot fix it. There are a few solutions you can try to fix the Death’s Door Micro-Stutter. Try each solution one at a time until the problem is fixed. After each solution, check the performance of the game.

Update the GPU Drivers

An outdated driver may be causing the game to stutter. Hence, before you proceed with the rest of the solutions we suggest that you update the GPU driver.

Disable In-game V-Sync

There is a possibility that the V-sync of the game could be causing the issue. But, you don’t need the in-game V-sync to implement the technology. Both Nvidia and AMD control panel already has the feature. So, the first fix we suggest is to disable the in-game V-Sync and enable it from the control panel of your GPU. For Nvidia users, the steps are:

Go to the Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D settings > Program Settings > Enable Vertical Sync.

Disable Fullscreen Optimization

Fullscreen can consume more resources on your system, which can have an impact on performance and cause the Death’s Door stutter. Normally, this is not a problem but if a game is not optimized properly the Windows force Fullscreen can act up. To disable it, follow the below steps.

Steam Library > right-click Death’s Door > Properties > Local Files > Browse > right-click on the game’s exe file > Properties > Compatibility > check Disable Fullscreen optimizations.

Set Launch Option on Steam

Set the launch option of Steam so the game does not force a Fullscreen. To perform the process, follow the below steps.

Steam Library > right-click on Death’s Door > Properties > General tab > Launch Options > enter (-window-mode exclusive) without the brackets.

If the above solutions did not resolve the Death’s Door stuttering, the problem may simply be poor optimization and nothing you do may help. The best thing to do at this time is waiting for a patch from the developers.
