If controller is present when game is started it's required to play the game. Unplugging brings popup window asking to reconnect controller. However simply unplugging controller before starting the game and unchecking controller option from controls settings makes it possible to play with mouse and keyboard even if controller is connected.

Issues fixed[edit]

Workarounds and fixes for common issues are listed at games official forum.

Start-up crash[edit]

Game features automatic detection of hardware to adjust settings automatically. However, in some cases this fails and closes the game.
Disable hardware check
  1. Navigate to configuration file location.
  2. Under options, change MeasuredHardwarePerformance value to 0.
Other issue may be that game detects resolution that isn't supported by the monitor, which causes game to either crash or monitor not showing anything.
Enable windowed mode and remove resolution value.
  1. Navigate to configuration file location.
  2. Under options, change WindowedStyle value to 1.
    • You may also try completely removing Resolution key.
