How to Fix Among Us Unity Error?

Some players reported that the game won’t run at the start as it’s crashing. And some other players report that they get a similar error to the following when they launch:

“Among Us – Unity 2019.4.9f1_50fe8a171dd9”

There is more than one reason such as:

  1. You might be using third-party utility or overlay like MSI Afterburner or GeForce Experience software.
  2. Your GPU is overclocked.
  3. You’re using third-party software or in-game overlays.

If the GPU is overclocked, then just revert it back to default clock speed, even if it’s factory overclocked. An alternate solution does exist to this, you can limit the max FPS that GPU can render to reduce the load.

Here’s how to do that:

  • Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings.
  • Turn on “Max FPS Limit” and the value.

This will help to resolve the error. However, setting the max FPS value is a bit of trial and error to find FPS the game becomes.

If you’re using third-party software or in-game overlays, simply disable them and the error will get a fix.
