This fix is only for Nvidia GeForce GPUs.

Windows 10

Windows 10 occasionally mis-configures GPUs (i.e. configures a discrete GPU as an integrated+dedicated GPU setup), especially when upgrading from an earlier Windows version.
Ensure GPU drivers are up-to-date[3]
Reinstall GPU drivers[3]

Issues fixed

Game crashes when using DirectX 11

Reduce all setting to lowest values[citation needed]
  1. Start the game without the -DX11 command line argument.
  2. Turn off and set all graphics options to their lowest levels.
  3. Apply the changes, then quit the game.
  4. Re-add the -DX11 command line argument.


You can set all graphics options back to the way they were once the fix is applied.

  2. 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>/367270/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (367270) may differ in some cases.
