Increase memory allocation[edit]

Fix Add launch option[3]

  1. Right-click on the game in your Steam library and select Properties.
  2. Click Set Launch Options... and enter: -mm_pool_size 1000.
Information The value should be at around 800 for 3 GB, 1000 for 4 GB and 1500 for 8 GB RAM installed on the PC.
Information This has been obsolete for quite a while now. Game automatically allocates memory allocation when needed, and limiting it with the parameter can cause issues. Forum post from developer.

Console[edit]

Information The console can be accessed by pressing ~ in-game.

Fix Enable console

  1. Navigate to the configuration file and open it with your text editor of choice.
  2. On line 63 change the value in uset g_developer "0" to 1.
  3. On line 88 change the value in uset g_console "0" to 1.
  4. Save the file.
Information There is an extensive list of console commands documented here.

64 bit version[edit]

Fix Add launch option

  1. Right-click on the game in your Steam library and select Properties.
  2. Click Set Launch Options... and enter: -64bit.
Information Update 1.16 no longer requires this and has a prompt to launch in 64-bit on startup.
