Even the greatest games encounter bugs and glitches on release, but what if it doesn’t start at all?

Final Fantasy VI’s remaster dropped on Steam not too long ago and everyone is thrilled to finally play this timeless classic on their PCs.  While some players were able to get into the game without any issues, there are some that encounter the usual launch issues that are present for any port.

Before anyone gives up entirely on the game, there are some easy fixes for this particular problem.  Read on to find one that fits best for you.

Fix Game Crashing & Not Starting – Final Fantasy VI

These are standard fixes for most games that have the same problems when launching off the Steam platform.  Like most games, these also apply to FFVI.

Update GPU Drivers and Operating System

Check your software and hardware drivers to make sure they are updated.   Make sure your GPU drivers and Operating System has no needed updates, update them accordingly if there is a need.  Even if the game doesn’t take too much to run, this could still be an issue.

First, go to your Windows Update Settings (type “Windows Update Settings” on the search bar next to the windows logo and it should be the first choice) and check if you need to install an update or two.

As for the GPU, key in “Device Manager” after hitting start, click on the first choice, go to display adapters > right click your GPU > and select “update driver”.  It will automatically tell you if there’s an update needed.

Verify the Integrity of Game Files

If updating your drivers and Operating System did not work, you can get into Steam’s settings itself and try to verify the integrity of your game files.  This is a built-in function before you launch the game that basically downloads all corrupted files in your download.  Here are the steps:

  1. Go to Steam > Library
  2. Look for Final Fantasy VI > Right-click then select “Properties”
  3. Choose “Local Files” > then look for Verify integrity of game files.

 After it’s done, launch the game and see if you still get any issues.

Reinstall the Game

As per most games that encounter this issue, if all else fails, reinstalling the game should be the quickest and surest fix.  Make sure to backup your saves if you can before doing this step.

Hopefully, a step in this guide should help you fix the issue.  If not, contacting steam support should be really helpful.

Happy gaming!

Fire ant alert! Be careful of ants and promise yourself not to cross over these fire ant hill locations.





Grounded and bugs always go side-by-side with each other. Some of them are nice, some are not. Ants are not exempted in this story.

There are several types of ants that you will encounter while playing Grounded. One of these is the fire ants. These ants are way more dangerous than the black ones. They inflict corrosion which causes decay that lowers your defense, making you more vulnerable to damage.

To prevent this from accidentally happening, it is just right for you to know the location of these dangerous fire ants. Having said that, this guide will tell you the location of fire ant hill.

Where to Find the Fire Ant Hill in Grounded

Aside from being cautious, you might also want to know the location of fire ant hill because of the parts that you will be needing in crafting armors.

So, to help you with that objective here is the location that you would want to explore in Grounded.


The location that we are talking about is the lawnmower. If you look at the map, it can be found in the upper backyard.

All you have to do is head over to the location of the lawnmower. Underneath it, you will see an anthill. That is what we are looking for.

Looking inside, you will be encountering a lot of chambers with different resources that you can farm. In the first chamber, there will be little to no ants that will come out. But, you can see a lot of brittle marbles and supreme marbles here.

Going deeper, you will be able to see a few soldier fire ants. Aside from that, more marbles are still waiting for you. From the second chamber, face the side where there is a wider opening. A lot more resources are waiting for you there.

In the next section, you will find raw science on a branch. Plus, there are also Ice Caps Mint, Chewed Gum, Hot Chachas Candy, and Sturdy Quartzites.

After that chamber, you can actually go even deeper by just following the path. Eventually, it will lead you outside of the ant hill chambers. It is a deep gully located far from the lawnmower where you started from.

Explore this location as well and you will be able to see a Milk Molar, Raw Science, and Sturdy Quartzites.

Aside from the parts that you can get from defeating fire ants, going to the fire ant hill is also a good idea to farm certain resources.
