From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games
(Added Video info / Online play should be "hackable" as SBRW allows for online play. As far as offline goes, I couldn't find any offline server in the SBRW launcher so I removed that. If there's still a functional offline server out there, it can be added back. / Xinput to "true" - the game has Xinput support by default / Added official languages)
