Issues fixed

AGEIA PhysX not found

Infernal requires PhysX v2.5.2 which is not included in Nvidia's PhysX installers.
Download missing DLLs[4]
  1. Install the Nvidia PhysX System Software (skip if you already have PhysX installed).
  2. Install the Nvidia PhysX Legacy System Software (skip if you already have PhysX Legacy installed for another game which needs it).
  3. Install the AGEIA PhysX Engine v2.5.2 by copying the unzipped v2.5.2 folder into the Engine folder where PhysX is installed (by default %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Engine).
  4. The game should now start up and play.

Game seems "zoomed in"

Happens when playing on a resolution that applies Windows display scaling.

Deactivate scaling
  1. Take the <path-to-game>\game.exe, right-click → Properties → Compatibility → Change high DPI settings → tick Override high dpi scaling behavior and set it to Application.
