Issues unresolved[edit]

Controller buttons not automatically mapped[edit]

The game relies on a name-based compatibility table for whether buttons should be automatically mapped - even for Xbox 360 controllers.[2]
The developers are aware of this and recommend the following workaround:
Manually assign buttons via Options menu

Issues fixed[edit]

"Out of Range" display error[edit]

Occasionally, Concursion causes your monitor to go out of its display range.[1]
Enable high DPI scaling[3]
  1. Right-click on Concursion in your Steam library.
  2. Click on Local Files -> Browse Local Files...
  3. From the window which appears, open the Concursion folder.
  4. Right-click on Concursion.exe, then click on Properties from the menu which appears.
  5. Click on the Compatibility from the window which appears.
  6. Ensure Disable display scaling on high DPI settings is unchecked.
  7. Click OK.

Notes

This is the developer-recommended solution.
This fix only works with the Windows version of Concursion.

  2. Click on Local Files -> Browse Local Files...
  3. From the window which appears, open the Concursion folder.

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>/303340/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (303340) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
