We would first and foremost recommend you update your specific Graphics Card drivers to ensure you are on the latest stable release to play The Good Life. The game is quite demanding.

There might not be a new driver update but it could be that you are running on old graphics drivers so you should update them in that case too. You can download the most up-to-date drivers from your GPU manufacturer’s website: AMD/NVIDIA. To do a clean install of GPU drivers, you can use Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) which completely removes components that were part of the original driver installation package. Then you can install your new Graphics Card drivers. Reboot Windows and try launching the game again.



If you have an Nvidia GPU then you can right-click your Desktop to open the NVIDIA Control Panel and do the following:

  • Click the small “+” icon next to “3D Settings
  • Click on Manage 3D settings.

  • Turn on Triple Buffer and Vertical Sync.
  • Turn on Texture Filtering Trilinear.
  • Set Texture Filter Quality to Performance
  • Set Open GL to Auto Select.


If you have an AMD GPU then you can right-click your Desktop to open the AMD Radeon Settings and do the following:

  • In Radeon Software, click on the Gear icon then select Graphics from the sub-menu and select The Good Life.
  • Turn off all post-processing options such as Radeon Anti-Lag, Radeon Chill, and Radeon Boost.
  • Turn off Wait for Vertical Refresh.
