Issues fixed[edit]

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

Low FPS on Windows 10[edit]

After updating to Windows 10, reaching 60 FPS is impossible even on good hardware.
Configure launch options[citation needed]
  1. Find Bastion in your Steam Library
  2. Right-click the game's title
  3. Select Properties
  4. Select Set Launch Options...
  5. Input -nofixedstep This will unlock your framerate and allow you to run the game smoothly.
  6. Press OK
  7. Launch the game.
  8. Ensure Vertical Sync is On in-game (an unlocked framerate breaks the game).

Lost savegames[edit]

Move saves to a new location

When starting the game, all or some save games are missing.[3]

  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]

When you launch the game it goes through the intro screens and then crashes before you are able to do anything.
Close the MSI Afterburner overlay[citation needed]
  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.
