Issues fixed[edit]

HDMI monitors: Stuck at 1080p24 / 1080i60[edit]

Information A fix can be found here.
Advantage The developers are looking at an official fix[5]
Disadvantage Some users[6] are reporting the game sets the monitor to 1080p24 or 1080i60, but only when enabling fullscreen and selecting 1920x1080 in the game (other resolutions run fine).
  • A workaround is to run it on a window or borderless fullscreen mode.
  • Another workaround is to use RadeonPro (some features of which do work on NVIDIA cards):

Fix Setup RadeonPro[7]

  1. Create a new profile for the game
  2. Under the [Tweaks] tab, set [Display refresh rate] to 60

Crash on launch[edit]

Fix Install game to C: drive

The game should work as long as the C: drive is present, but sometimes it has problems if it isn't installed to that drive.

Fix Disable Xfire ingame

Xfire has an in-game overlay that can cause crashing. Turning it off for this game or closing Xfire entirely should do the trick.

Issues unresolved[edit]

Skip intro videos[edit]

Information The game has a lengthy series of splash screens that are shown whenever the game starts up. So far it has not been discovered how to remove these, but it's possible to speed through them with repeated button presses on the controller.
Disadvantage Doesn't work with a keyboard
