Issues fixed[edit]

Game stutters and freezes[edit]

Change settings[5]
  1. Set Textures to Medium.
  2. Set Shadows to Medium or High.
  3. Disabling Shadow Cache can help too.
  4. Set framerate cap to "Variable" and turn on V-Sync (tested on Windows 7, AMD FX-4350, Nvidia GTX 750 Ti).

Notes

Users with 4 GB VRAM graphics cards or less will have memory leaks on highest settings due to the game's memory usage.[citation needed]

Low frame rate[edit]

Enable Shadow Cache[citation needed]
May increase loading stutter.
Causes high VRAM usage.

Lighting issues/missing flashlight[edit]

On some systems, the flashlight beam may be missing entirely and indoor lighting is generally glitchy.
Disable Subsurface Scattering and/or Set Reflections to 'Off' and/or Set Framerate to 'Variable'[citation needed]
