Issues fixed[edit]

Game crashes on launch after Techland logo when running in DirectX 10 mode[edit]

The DirectX 10 version may have compatibility issues with Windows 7 and later[3]
  1. Launch the game in compatibility mode for Windows XP SP 3

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

Maximum selectable refresh rate is 100 Hz. This does not limit FPS, but may set your monitor's refresh rate to 100 Hz, which may result in screen tearing on a 120 Hz or 144 Hz monitor.
Set screen refresh rate[citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open Video.scr with a text editor.
  3. Set MaxRefresh to the screen refresh rate (e.g. MaxRefresh(120)).

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>/3020/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (3020) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
