How to Fix Baldurs Gate 3 Act 3 lagging on PS5 and PC

1. Update Your Graphics Card Drivers

One of the most common causes of performance issues in games is outdated graphics card drivers.

To update graphics card drivers follow these steps:

  • Go to the website of your graphics card manufacturer (e.g. NVIDIA, AMD, Intel).
  • Search for the latest drivers for your graphics card model.
  • Download and install the drivers.
  • Restart your computer.

2. Lower Graphics Settings

If updating your drivers doesn’t work, try lowering the graphics settings in the game. To do this:

  • Launch Baldur’s Gate 3.
  • Click on the Options menu.
  • Click on the Graphics tab.
  • Lower the settings for Texture Quality, Shadow Quality, and other graphics options.
  • Click on Apply and then OK.

3. Use Script Extender Console To Resolve Delay Issue (PC Only)

Step 1: Install and set up script extender console

  • Download the script extender by going to
  • Click on “” to download it.
  • If you’re using Steam, right-click on Baldur’s Gate 3 and select Properties.
  • Click on “Local Files” and then “Browse”.
  • Navigate to the “bin” folder.
  • Copy the downloaded files, DWrite.dll and ScriptExtenderSettings.json, into the “bin” folder.
  • If you already have DWrite.dll from installed mods, you only need ScriptExtenderSettings.json.
  • If you’re using GOG, find where your game is installed and follow the same steps.
  • Start Baldur’s Gate 3.

Step 2: Input the command:

  • Load into your save in Baldur’s Gate 3.
  • Open the console by typing anything into it (for example, any random letter or number) and pressing enter.
  • Input the following command and press enter: _D(Osi.DB_InternScene_AllowDisturbanceForScene(nil,nil))
  • Wait for the light blue text to appear. If there is a lot of text (takes more than 5 seconds to scroll through), this fix should work for you. If not, this may be a different issue.

Step 3: Input the code

  • In the console, type –[[ (two dashes and two opening square brackets) and press enter. Your console should say “S–>>” at the bottom left.
  • Copy and paste the following code into the console and press enter:

Table = {} for g,v in ipairs(Osi.DB_InternScene_AllowDisturbanceForScene(nil,nil)) do table.insert(Table,v[2]) end from = 1 up_to = 200 for k = 1,50,1 do for i = #Table,1,-1 do for j=from,up_to,1 do Osi.DB_InternScene_AllowDisturbanceForScene(j,Table[i]) end end print(“Loop ” .. k .. ” done.”) print (“from: ” .. from .. ” up to: ” .. up_to) from = from +200 up_to = up_to + 200 end print(“All done”)

  • Then, type in ]]– (two closing square brackets and two dashes) and press enter.
  • Wait for the light blue text to appear. Wait until it says “All done”.

Step 4: Repeat the command

  • Input the command from step 2 again. It should just show “[ ]”.
  • If it shows “[ ]”, the delay should be fixed.

Keep in mind that this is just a temporary fix and Larian is aware of the issue and may release a patch to fix it in the future.
