How to Fix the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre Game Network Error” Issue?
Restart Your Device and Relauch the Game
If the connection is temporarily interrupted, restarting your device and relaunching the game may re-establish it again.
- Close the game (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and turn off your device (PC/Console) as well.
- Along with this, also switch off your router and ON after 2 to 3 minutes.
- Connect your device to your internet and try launching the game on your device.
- See if the connection has been established again or if you are still getting the “Network error: Your network connection has been lost” message.
Troubleshoot Internet-Related Issues
To run the game and its all features smoothly, you must have stable and reliable internet. Unstable/slow/weak internet may pause the connectivity with the game server, and hence the “Network error: Your network connection has been lost” error message may appear.
- Firstly, test the Speed of your Internet. This is necessary to have speedy internet so that the game can run properly.
- Weak internet can be a connectivity issue. So, call your ISP and ask them to fix the problem so that the speed can be regained. Alternatively, upgrade to a better plan.
- Use alternate internet options. (If possible or if you have any.)
- Soft reset your router by pressing the power button on your router/Modem. Now, reconnect your device to your internet and relaunch the game.
- As the next move, you can perform a power cycle on your router/modem: first of all, turn off your router and disconnect it from all the connected cables and wires, wait a few minutes (3 to 5), and power it on again.
Check the Game’s Server Health
The game servers should be up and running to work all the features in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre game.
If the servers are overloaded or any maintenance work is going on, some features may not work properly and lead to an error message like “Network error: Your network connection has been lost”.
So, verify the server’s health of the game by visiting the Texas Chain Saw’s official social media channels.
