Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

By default the game only has FXAA option for anti-aliasing.
MSAA
This method only works on NVIDIA graphics cards and on requires a 16:9 resolution.
  1. Open The Wolf Among Us driver profile via NVIDIA Inspector.
  2. Change Antialiasing compatibility to 0x204002C1[2]
  3. Change Antialiasing - Mode to Override any application setting
  4. Change Antialiasing - Setting to 4x [4x Multisampling] or 8xQ [8x Multisampling]
  5. Apply changes.

Notes

Shadows will not be sharpened.
SGSSAA
This method only works on NVIDIA graphics cards and on requires a 16:9 resolution.
  1. Open The Wolf Among Us driver profile via NVIDIA Inspector.
  2. Change Antialiasing compatibility to 0x204002C1[2]
  3. Change Antialiasing - Mode to Override any application setting
  4. Change Antialiasing - Setting to 4x [4x Multisampling] or 8xQ [8x Multisampling]
  5. Change Antialiasing - Transparency Supersampling to 4x Sparse Grid Supersampling or 8x Sparse Grid Supersampling
  6. Apply changes.

Notes

Keep in mind that both Antialiasing - Setting and Antialiasing - Transparency Supersampling should always use the same number.
SGSSAA might blur the entire screen (lowering texture quality). If you don't like the effect only use MSAA, which offers considerable object edge sharpening without any blurring.

Issues fixed[edit]

Crashes on launch (OS X)[edit]

The game crashes immediately on startup.[4]
Ensure game path does not contain special characters[4]
  • Make sure that The Wolf Among Us.app path does not contain the characters / " ! [ or \.

Game does not launch[edit]

Telltale Tool games have a problem with Windows 8, which makes the game unable to launch when a controller is plugged in. Although this issue has been fixed in Windows 8.1, a temporary solution is available for Windows 8 users.
Place a .dll file to the installation folder[5]
  1. Download dinput8.dll file from here.
  2. Place dinput8.dll in the installation folder.

Notes

Do not forget to delete dinput8.dll from the installation folder, after upgrading to Windows 8.1 to avoid future possible problems.

Game does not save[edit]

Problem is caused by non-English characters in save game path.[6]
Rename save game path to English characters only[6]
