Issues fixed[edit]

Game is infinitely scrolling after using the Steam Overlay[edit]

Enter Windows Device Manager and disable devices[citation needed]
  1. Open Device Manager from Windows Start Menu
  2. Expand "Human Interface Devices" list
  3. Find and disable device labeled "HID-compliant vendor-defined device"
    • There may be more than one device with that label. Try disabling one by one to see which one is causing the issue.


When you reopen the game after you have disabled the device, the infinite scrolling shouldn't happen after using Steam Overlay.

Fix stuttering[edit]

Alternative solutions
  • Download and install Rivatuner, add DevilMayCry5.exe and limit Framerate to desired fps.
Use DirectX 11
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Open dmc5config.ini
  3. Change TargetPlatform=DirectX12 to TargetPlatform=DirectX11
  4. Save changes.
This seems to fix the issues for people with low RAM or VRAM, or is experiencing stuttering or desync issues during cutscenes, gameplay

Lens Flare Censorship on female bodies[edit]

Devil May Cry .ini has a distinct option for Lens Flare.
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Open dmc5config.ini
  3. Change LensFlareEnable=true to LensFlareEnable=false
  4. In order to get rid of some cutscene censorship at the beginning of mission 7, you have to change DepthOfFiledEnable=true to DepthOfFiledEnable=false
  5. Save your changes, enjoy.
Lens flare may be used in other places in cutscenes, however the writer hasn't noticed any changes.

Contact Shadows[edit]

How to use сontact shadows constantly:
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Open dmc5config.ini
  3. Change ContactShadowSetting=CUSTOM to ContactShadowSetting=ON
  4. Save your changes.
Contact shadows will be used during gameplay, not just for the cutscenes.

Cutscene Black Screen Fix[edit]

How to fix Black Screen during cutscenes:
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Open dmc5config.ini
  3. Change UseVendorExtention=Enable to UseVendorExtention=Disable
  4. Save your changes.
Might fix the issue on some devices.

DirectX 12 Audio De-Sync Fix (NVIDIA GPU)[edit]

How to fix the audio De-Sync on DX12 for NVIDIA GPU's:
  1. Open Nvidia Control Panel.
  2. Click on Program Settings and select the game from the list.
  3. Set Vertical Sync to Fast.
  4. Save your changes.
