Issues fixed[edit]

Low framerate and slowdowns[edit]

The framerate can get stuck at 42 or 48 FPS even on computers that meet the system requirements. This also makes the game run slower.[1]
Opt-in to the beta branch (Steam)[2]
  1. Make a backup copy of the <path-to-game>\Dependencies folder somewhere outside of the game's directory.
  2. Right-click Capsized in your Steam library, select "Properties" and then the "Betas" tab.
  3. Select the "dev" beta from the drop-down box, then close the Properties window and let the game finish updating.
  4. Once the update is finished, move the backup Dependencies folder from Step 1 back into the <path-to-game> folder.

Notes

  1. If you are playing with a gamepad, you will need to reset the gamepad bindings in the game's settings menu.
Instructions (Windows 7)[3]
  1. Right click on the game exe or shortcut, select Properties and under Compatibility check:
    • Disable visual themes
    • Disable desktop composition.
  2. Run the game and in the video options menu enable window mode and disable vsync. Restart the game for the changes to take effect.
