2. Open the game via ACValhalla_Plus directly from the game folder

Go to screen > Turn on sync into adaptive and also make the game fullscreen (not borderless)

Now start new games, and wait until the white screen then you alt-tab, open the task manager and you should see that ACValhalla processes use almost 100% of CPU usage, wait until it is just using 30% or so usage, then you alt-tab again to the game.

3. For laptop:

Please check if the prompt computer (especially a notebook) has enabled the option to run with an independent graphics card in the graphics card controlling panel. If not, please manually add the running program of the Hall of Valor, and select the independent display mode to run.

2. The system or game was not updated before the no sound problem occurred:

Go to Settings and set the Language to English.

Then after launching AC Valhalla you can choose the language of your choice from the in-game settings menu.

If this method can not solve no-sound issue, you can use Driver Talent to scan your computer. If the sound card driver is out-dated, you can try to update it into a newer version.
