Issues fixed[edit]

Low frame rate[edit]

Enable Shadow Cache[citation needed]
May increase loading stutter.
Causes high VRAM usage.

Lighting issues/missing flashlight[edit]

On some systems, the flashlight beam may be missing entirely and indoor lighting is generally glitchy.
Disable Subsurface Scattering and/or Set Reflections to 'Off' and/or Set Framerate to 'Variable'[citation needed]

Crash on water scene[edit]

On all systems with AMD Phenom, the game totally crashes when you are in the water scene.
Use KZR Crackz RE7 Saves[citation needed]


This is a save game that let you continue just after the crash, the rest of the game will run with no problems.
