Issues fixed[edit]

"Two Worlds II has stopped working" crash at launch[edit]

Install the NVIDIA PhysX System Software[citation needed]

Interface elements go beyond the screen edges[edit]

Some TVs and other non-standard displays will not show the entire image so UI elements may get cut off. Two Worlds II has a built-in feature to counter this.
If possible disable the cropping behaviour in the display's own settings first (see Overscan for details).
Use safe area in interface[citation needed]
  1. Go to Settings, Graphics.
  2. Choose Use safe area in interface.
  3. Adjust the edges as directed until the box shown fits the correct area.
  4. Resume play and confirm that the changes are sufficient; if not adjust again until it is correct.
