Issues fixed[edit]

Game immediately opens configuration tool on execution[edit]

The configuration tool seems to use different methods of determining display information from the game, resulting in sometimes incompatible configurations that the game refuses to accept.
Certain resolutions may not be properly recognized by the game.
Adjust Registry to allow additional display modes[1]
  1. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Reality Pump\KnightShift\BaseGame\Graphics\Setup.
  2. Change ShowAllRefreshRates to 1.
On systems with switchable graphics, the configuration tool may get an adapter name that is different from what the engine gets. This also causes the game to bail.
Adjust Registry to set proper graphics adapter name[citation needed]
  1. Open Device Manager:
    • Vista and later: open the Start screen/Start menu, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.
    • Windows XP: press Win+R, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.
  2. Expand Display adapters, and note the name of your dedicated graphics card.
  3. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Reality Pump\KnightShift\BaseGame\Graphics\Default.
  4. Edit Renderer with the graphics card name you noted earlier.
