Cricket fans will be happy to learn that Don Bradman Cricket 17 is now available on Windows PCs. This game immerses you into the amazing world of cricket, challenging you to become the best cricket player on the field. Thanks to a new revolutionary control system delivering the best batting, bowling and fielding experience, Don Bradman Cricket 17 offers even more variety and precision of play.

Due to the great diversity of possible PC configurations that the game runs on, Don Bradman Cricket 17 is affected by some technical issues. In this article, we’re going to list the most common bugs reported by players as well as their corresponding workarounds, if available.

Don Bradman Cricket 17 reported bugs

Low FPS rate issues

Players report they can’t get more than 10-15 FPS even after turning all the settings to low. Playing in windowed mode doesn’t help either. Here’s how one player describes the issues:

just bought & installed the game and i’m getting 10-15 FPS. I’ve turned all the settings down to low and read through the recommended requirements (which I should meet, easily..). I’ve checked task manager and the game isn’t capping my CPU or RAM or anything like that, so i’m at a bit of a loss.

If you’re having FPS issues, lags and slowdowns while playing, we recommend you to download GameFire 6 Pro (free) . It will focus your computer resources and processes on the game without overclocking your hardware.

Game controller constantly disconnects

Players report their controllers constantly lose connection. This can happen every few seconds or every 2 minutes. The good news is that Big And Studios has already acknowledged this bug and confirms DBC17 will receive an update very soon that will fix issues with 3rd party controller disconnections.

So my game controller loses connection apparently, except its a wired controller and works 100% with every other game.
Its fine in the menus, and I can start a batting or bowling game, then at no fixed time I recieve the message. Controller 7 has disconnected, press Y to reconnect. Sometimes it happens every few seconds, then it can go 2 or 3 minutes before happening again!

DBC17 hangs when players accept invitations

Gamers can’t accept friend invitations because as soon as they accept them, the game freezes and hangs. For the time being, the only solution is to restart the game.

These are the most frequent DBC17 issues reported by players. As you can see, the game is pretty stable despite the occasional rare issues that may occur.

If you’re planning to buy this game, check the system requirements first to make sure your computer can properly run it.
