How to Load to a Rust Server Faster (5 Possible Fix)
Rust load times can be long and boring and there are many reasons for this. The causes of this problem can be many, including outdated graphics card drivers, corrupt game files, or your computer may not meet the Rust system requirements.
In this article, you will learn how to load Rust faster.
Method #1: Set Your Optimized Loading Setting
Optimized Loading setting is a new feature added to Rust and with this setting Rust load faster. All Rust players have been suffering from these long-loading screens, and Rust developers have finally started to bring solutions to these long-loading screens.
This setting is very easy to use.
- Start Rust and go to Options.
- Then go to the Experimental tab at the bottom and change Optimized Loading to Partial.
This setting makes Rust load things incredibly fast.
Method #2: Update Your Graphics Drivers
Outdated graphics drivers can drastically reduce your game performance and significantly increase Rust loading times. So always update your video card to the latest version to avoid graphical errors and slow loading times.
You can update your graphics card drivers by typing Device Manager in the Windows search bar that opens after pressing the Windows key. If you have an NVIDIA card, you can download the latest version of your video card from the Nvidia GeForce Experience program.
If Rust is constantly crashing and giving errors, updating the GPU drivers will also help you solve this issue.
Method #3: Set Your PC to Ultimate Performance
With Power Plan, you can run your computer with more power than usual. Doing this also helps in Rust, as your computer will run more powerfully, your FPS will be much more and loading screens will be much shorter in Rust. Thus, asset loadings will take less time.
With multiple power modes, this feature not only helps games run stronger but also makes your PC boot up faster. Normally in Power Plan, there is only a Balanced Power Plan, High Performance, and Power Saver mode.
To turn on Ultimate Performance, there are a few steps to follow.
- Type CMD in the Windows search bar and start as administrator. Then paste this command line:
powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61
- Then type "Choose a power plan" in the search again.
- After that select the Ultimate Performance, which is even more powerful than High Performance.
This will make your computer more powerful and optimized overall. And also this solution can also save you from Rust not responding errors.
Method #4: Set Launch Options for Rust
Adding a launch option is very important to increase your FPS in the game and make Rust load faster. To briefly explain the launch options, we can say that through the Steam client we can specify the settings that Rust should start with and the system values it should use.
These values, which we will assign in the best way according to the features of our computer, will make loading Rust faster.
- Right-click on Rust in Steam Library and go into properties.
- Enter this code in the Launch Options box that opens in front of you.
-high -gc.buffer 4096 -maxMem=14000 -malloc=system -force-feature-level-11-0 -cpuCount=4 -exThreads=8 -force-d3d11-no-singlethreaded
- Set Max Memory, CPU Count, and Ex Threads according to your system specs.
- Open Task Manager to find out the value to enter in CPU count and Ex Threads. Go to the Performance tab, and write the value in Cores in CPU counts and the value in Logical Processors in Ex Threads.
MaxMem Options According to Your Ram
- 4GB Ram - 8000
- 8GB Ram - 16000
- 16GB Ram 32000
This way Rust client will run much faster and more powerful, so you will encounter fewer graphical errors and your load times will be faster.
Method #5: Replace Your Hard Disk with an SSD or M2 SSD
The biggest reason for Rust's slow loading is that the game is installed on a hard disk. Since the hard disk is now an old storage system, it takes a very long time to physically read the data, which is why Rust load times increase a lot.
To make Rust load faster all you need is an external SSD or M2 SSD. SSD speeds are quite high and M2 SSDs are much faster. When you install Rust on a Hard disk and try to enter the game, there is a loading process for about 20 minutes, when you install and enter the game with SSD, these load times drop to 10, and finally, with the M2 SSD, you can enter the game in as little as 2 minutes. Thanks to M2 SSDs, asset loading is much faster.
Also, if your computer's RAM is less than 16 GB, making your RAM at least 16 GB will help you a lot in terms of loading screen and performance in Rust. Having high RAM will save you from many Rust crashes.
If still Rust takes a long time to load upgrade your operating system and reinstall Rust to make sure there are no corrupted game files so that the asset load skip will be much faster.
Now you can destroy your enemies with the best weapons in Rust with peace of mind.
