Issues unresolved[edit]

Changed settings not saving[edit]

Settings do not persist after exiting the game.

Issues fixed[edit]

Mouse look is incredibly wonky[edit]

For unknown reasons, the x and y axis's are scaled in a way the looking up and down is slower than looking left and right.
Change the mouse X/Y scaling
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\gameroot.
  2. Open sw-redux.cfg with a text editor and find the lines MouseScaleX and MouseScaleY and change the numbers next to the text to the following:
    • MouseScaleX = 3
    • MouseScaleY = 2
  3. Save the changes made and close the file.
