Issues fixed[edit]

Screenshot of the screen freezing problem
Information The Help and Support Forum can be helpful in solving your problems.
Information The game's IRC channel (webchat) is a source of live support.

Small window in bottom left/Screen freezing[edit]

Information On computers that are on the lower-end of the hardware spectrum, a small window may appear in the bottom left corner of your window and the rest of the screen will freeze.[2]

Fix Turn off shaders and lower graphics settings

  1. In the settings, turn off shaders and again try to play the game.
  2. If this doesn't fix the problem you should lower the graphics settings, this should fix the problem completely.

Missing in-game models[edit]

Information If characters are or have disappeared in the game, you likely have this problem[3][4]

Fix Turn off shaders and lower graphics settings

  1. Once you've opened the game, open the console (with either ~ or /).
  2. Enter /gpuskel 0 into the console, this should fix the problem. If it does not fix the problem, try updating your graphics drivers.
