This guide will show you how to fix the “ImgMedia failed to load” crash error in Satisfactory. You might see a window with a message:
“Plugin ImgMedia failed to load because module ImgMedia could not be loaded. There may be an operating system error or the module may not be properly set up.”
If you experience a crash with the above message after seeing a black screen on launch, you can fix this error in Satisfactory by installing the “UE4 Prerequisites x64”. Just follow the steps:
- On Steam library, right-click on Satisfactory
- Click the Manage > Browse local files
- In the main installation folder of Satisfactory, go to Engine > Extras > Redist > en-us
- Run the “UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe” file in the en-us folder.
- Install it.
- Test the game.
You can find the same file for the Epic Games version in Satisfactory’s main folder.
