Server errors may be a thing at times when COD playing gets high worldwide, but nothing is as annoying as the fatal dev error 6068. This error pops up roughly 7 to 15 minutes into booting up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, pushing the game to a halt with the error pop up.
Clicking okay would instantly push you back to the desktop, the game stopping from working, and with you just scratching your head. It usually gets fixed through a general GPU or OS update, but what should you do if it’s messing with you and that doesn’t seem to be an option? Let’s find out!
- The first thing you have to do is check if all your drivers and even your OS is updated. Make a thorough search so you know nothing is cockblocking your game’s performance, and also nothing is hindering it from performing at it’s best possible capability.
2. The next thing you’d want to check is the VideoMemoryScale’s value’s if it’s not overloading your VRAM. To check on this, you go to your Modern Warfare folder inside My Documents. There would be a file there named “adv_options.ini”, and you should open it through your computer’s notepad. A value for the VideoMemoryScale inside the notes would default as 0.85. change it to 0.5 or 0.55 to lighten the load on your VRAM.
3. Another thing you could do is to revert to DirectX 11, as DirectX 12 is not particularly compatible with every device released since it’s fairly new. This can easily be edited through the Battle.Net launcher by clicking on Options, game Settings, finding the Mordern Warfare tab, then checking on “additional command line arguments”. From there a text bot would suddenly appear, in which you would need to type in “-d3d11” minus the quotation marks. Hopefully that fixes it.
4. Something you can do that’s most straightforward is to have only the game running when you play. Make sure to close other applications running in the background so it doesn’t interfere with your COD gameplay. Also, you can change the graphics settings from inside the game to a lower possible setting , allowing for cheaper visuals but way better gameplay.
5, Lastly, you can go check if your game has any corrupted files from patching and updates. You can check on this through the repair function inside the Battle.Net launcher, just click on the game from there, head onto settings, then click on Scan and Repair. If that doesn’t work, you can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the game to some avail.
