Besides the crash at startup, some players are reporting the Phasmophobia crashing with Unity error. The game is powered by the Unity Engine and the error seems to be problem with the engine. The error message appears as a progress bar with message, Phasmophobia Unity 2019.4.7f1_e992b1a16e65. After browsing through forums, we found that the most common cause of the Phasmophobia Unity Error is an overclocked RAM or GPU. Users who had a problem with either of their RAM sticks can also face the issue.
As such, the first fix you must attempt is try playing the game with just a single RAM stick or simply dislodge and replace them. You must understand that the fix for this problem is not universal as different users have a different system configuration. However, if you try the fixes if your situation matches what’s highlighted in the post.
Fix 1: Underclock or Disable Overlock of RAM & GPU
You must note that even when you have not manually overclocked the GPU or RAM, it may still be factory overclocked. Hence, you must Underclock the RAM and GPU. If you are using a software to overclock the GPU, disable the software and revert the settings. To Underclock the RAM, you can do it via the BIOS. A user that resolved the problem under clocked his 8GB RAM from 2000 MHz to 1600 MHz and it fixed the Phasmophobia crashing with Unity error.
Fix 2: Alter the Power Options in Window 10
For users who do not have an effective CPU cooler, you may want to skip this step as it would increase the CPU temperature by a few degrees. Without proper cooling, it may harm your system. Here are the steps to follow.
