Notes

  1. Unreal Engine 4 engine build: 4.21.2[1]
  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>/783170/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (783170) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

References

  1. Verified by checking the details of the main executable file of version 1.7 of this game.
  2. If a user sets this to "Yes" and returns to this menu later, this option will say "No" again, so the user may think this option is broken, but V-Sync will actually work. This can be verified by NOT noticing screen-tearing after setting this to "Yes". (While V-Sync is on, the configuration file called "GameUserSettings.ini" will show "bUseVSync=True". While V-Sync is off, that line won't appear in that configuration file.)
