Issues fixed[edit]

Low FPS[edit]

There are two ways of fixing the problem:

  • Disable hardware acceleration if fullscreen is on.
  • Play the game in a window. Hardware acceleration works fine while the game is windowed.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/3470/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (3470) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
