Lines appearing on the screen[edit]

Nvidia solution[1]
You will need to turn Anisotropic Filtering off in either NVIDIA Control Panel or AMD VISION Engine Control Center/Catalyst.
  1. Right-click on your desktop and open the Nvidia Control Panel
  2. Under "3D Settings", select "Manage 3D Settings"
  3. Set Anisotropic Filtering to "Off" or "Application Controlled"

Broken text[edit]

Reset graphic drivers[2]

If this doesn't work, then try updating the graphics drivers.
If above fails, there's nothing you can do, possibly because of unsupported graphics card.

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>/218680/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (218680) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
