Issues unresolved

Low frame-rate

The game may sometimes run in a low frame-rate, and even if your hardware meets the recommended requirements, the game may not run in the proper speed. Rebooting the computer may address this issue but it is not guaranteed to remedy the performance issues entirely, especially for Windows 10 users.[6]

Fullscreen mode plays at 4:3

Despite running at a resolution of 1000x600, attempting to play the game in fullscreen mode causes the game to display at a 4:3 resolution instead.[7]

Settings do not save

Despite creating files that might indicate configuration data, they do nothing at all and the game does not retain setting changes upon exiting the game.[8]
