Issues fixed[edit]

Stuttering[edit]

The game has some compatibility issues with older operating systems such as Windows 7 due to the outdated graphics stack (WDDM).
Change operating system[citation needed]
  1. Back up your files and programs.
  2. Go to Microsoft site .
  3. Select at will the type of transition to Windows 10.
  4. Upgrade to Windows 10 or reinstall from scratch.
  5. Download and install the latest drivers for your configuration, in particular the video card.
  6. Turn off the transparency of the desktop interface in the system settings in the personalization color section.
  7. You can also turn on the game mode in the system settings to ensure a higher priority of the game in automatic mode.
This action is the cornerstone of stability and smoothness of the gameplay, as Windows 10 has more advanced basic elements that the game requires.
You can also disable the function of HPET which is a technology of high-precision timer in the motherboard.
This can sometimes cause performance problems.
Disable HPET[4]

Method 1:

  1. Tap on the Windows-key, enter cmd, right-click cmd.exe in the results listing and select to run the command prompt with administrative privileges.
  2. To enable HPET as the only timer run the command bcdedit /set useplatformclock true
  3. To disable HPET in Windows run the command bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock
  4. Restart your computer.

Method 2:

  1. Search "Device Manager" on your PC.
  2. Scroll down to "System Devices" and open the sub-menu.
  3. Scroll to "High Precision Event Timer" and click it.
  4. Click "Actions" at the top of the window, and from that pop-up menu, click "Disable".
  5. Restart your computer.

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/292730/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (292730) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
