Issues fixed[edit]

Information Various fixes can be found in the Steam Users' Forum FAQ by the developer.

Lost savegames[edit]

Fix Move saves to a new location

When starting the game, all or some save games are missing.[2]

  1. Search all the Save game data locations and find the most recent ones.
  2. Copy these most recent Saves to all the other save game data locations. You may have to create some which are missing (Make sure you only create ones that are relevant to your operating system!)
  3. Now your save games should appear again the next time you launch the game.

Game crashes during launch[edit]

Fix Close the MSI Afterburner overlay

Information When you launch the game it goes through the intro screens and then crashes before you are able to do anything.
  1. In the taskbar, right click on MSI Afterburner and click Close.
  2. You may need to click show hidden icons to see the icon.
  3. Other overlays such as Mumble or Fraps may apparently cause the same issue, so try disabling those as well.
