Key points

Some settings are accessible from the main menu while others are found within the game's pause menu; both option menus are located from the in-game hub.
Because of controller support implementation, especially with XInput controllers, users might have issues using a controller. See Input settings.

Issues fixed[edit]

Controller not working[edit]

Game hooks into one of the devices identifying itself as controller and ignores the rest. This means that usually especially XInput compatible controllers might get ignored.
Unplug or disable unused devices[citation needed]
  1. Open windows controller config by pressing Win+R and typing joy.cpl.
  2. Unplug or disable all the devices that are shown on the list besides used controller.
  3. From Advanced, select your controller to be the primary one.
  4. Start the game.

Notes

If using a DirectInput controller, calibrate the controller from the General Settings menu. Confirm is bound to Button 1 by default.

Crash on launch[edit]

For majority this seems to be MSAA setting related.
Disable MSAA via config[8]
  1. Go to the configuration files location.
  2. Open Mn9SystemSettings.ini.
  3. Change first instance of bAllowD3D9MSAA from true to false.
  4. Save the changes and start the game.

Notes

MSAA can't be used and changing the option in-game will make it crash.
