Issues unresolved[edit]

Game refuses to launch after launcher[edit]

There have been many cases where game simply refuses to launch after starting game from launcher. For some users simply reselecting settings[2] and making sure first video- and audio device has been selected if they appear multiple times.[3] For some users nothing works and resolution selection isn't available.[4] Manually adding setting to registery doesn't work as launcher uses checksum and resets settings with every launch.

Notes

  1. When running this game without Administrator elevation, activity in %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%, and %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\ (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>/92000/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (92000) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
