Issues fixed[edit]

Game does not launch[edit]

Add a working libEGL.dll file to the game folder[2]
  1. Download this archive.
  2. Right click on game in Steam library.
  3. Click Local Files.
  4. Click Browse local files...
  5. Extract the downloaded archive to the folder that opens.


Creating an empty text file and renaming it to libEGL.dll also seems to work, although it will cause an error message on launch.

Low FPS in-game[edit]

Videos play at full frame rate, but gameplay (including menus) runs very slowly.
Disable Steam Overlay[citation needed]
  1. Right click on game in Steam library.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Uncheck Enable the Steam overlay while in-game, then press Close.
