Broken physics[edit]

Install older PhysX version[1]
Modern PhysX versions break the physics of this game, an older one has to be installed for the game to function normally as even Legacy PhysX does not work.
Doing this may cause other games or programs that use PhysX to not function properly.
  1. Uninstall current PhysX, including legacy if installed.
  2. Go to <path-to-game> and delete or rename PhysXCooking.dll, PhysXCore.dll, PhysXDevice.dll, and PhysXLoader.dll
  3. Download and install PhysX_9.09.1112
  4. Physics should now work properly.
Although reference says to delete all registry entries of PhysX, this is not necessary.[2]

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>/18400/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (18400) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
