General troubleshooting

Many of these assume a Steam installation; similar options may be available for other copies of the game. Notably, launch options can be passed directly as command-line options when launching Noita from a command line shell or shortcut.

  1. Make sure all drivers are up to date
  2. Disable Steam Cloud
    • Right-click the game in your Steam Library, select Properties, uncheck Keep games saves in the Steam Cloud for Noita
  3. Toggle the game cursor
    • Press Win+R, type %appdata%\..\LocalLow\Nolla_Games_Noita\save_shared and press Enter
    • Open config.xml, change line that says application_rendered_cursor="0" to application_rendered_cursor="1"
  4. Troubleshoot with launch options
  5. Delete / unsubscribe from all mods
  6. Delete the entire folder at %appdata%/../LocalLow/Nolla_Games_Noita
  7. Delete all local files and redownload

Common problems

Issue Resolution
Game crashes shortly after launching If you have recently unsubscribed from a mod in the Steam Workshop, re-subscribe to that mod, it may be attempting to modify the New Game selection screen while missing assets (because you unsubscribed from it). Disable the mod from the Mods menu before unsubscribing again, if this method is successful.

Stretched out logo on launch

Turn off low quality rendering

Unable to load mods on start up
Your game is trying to download a "ghost mod" from the Steam Workshop, locate the broken mod in your subscribed items and remove/unsubscribed from it. Beautiful Magic material is an example of a mod. This generally happens because the mod you are subscribed to has been made unavailable, causing your game to be unable to start as it cannot locate and download the required mods.
