Monster Hunter: World (MHW) was successfully launched on PC with millions of copies sold over the past week. As mentioned in our previous article regarding the game, players are expected to experience the pros and cons on PC. Running MHW in delicious 4K and 60fps is definitely a pro, but as expected of a console-to-pc port, players are experiencing a killjoy bug which crashes the game whenever they are alt-tabbing.

Thankfully with the help of Kaldaien, a resident Steam community member and modder, a mod/patch called Special K was created to help tackle the issue. According to Kaldaien, the problem exists due to a bug in the game’s engine that prevents it from correctly handling exclusive full screen.

Aside from solving the crash, Special K also enables HDR10 and scRGB support for HDR-capable monitors or TVs. Other interesting additions in the mod include giving players the ability to capture HUD-less screenshots, and the ability to tinker CPU core count that could reduce hitching and frame-rate instability.

Capcom has not issued any announcements of an official patch for MHW PC as of yet, so for players who are eager to play the game on PC without the hiccups are recommended to download the mod for now.
