Issues fixed[edit]

Sped-up or Slowed Down Audio[edit]

Setting your audio card to play at a sample rate higher or lower than 48000 Hz will either speed up or slow down the audio.[3] Higher sample rates will result in faster audio speeds and lower sample rates will result in slower audio speeds.
Set your audio sample rate to 48000 Hz[citation needed]

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>/391040/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (391040) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
