Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  2. 2.0 2.1 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>/548430/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (548430) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

    Compared 16:9 and 21:9 screenshots, can conclude that it's expanding aspect ratio horizontally without cropping vertically
  3. Are you having random fps drops? Try disabling Ansel.
