Issues fixed[edit]

Cannot Disable 3D[edit]

Users with 3D capable Nvidia graphics cards may be unable to disable 3D Vision by unplugging the 3D adapter, or using the Nvidia Control Panel.[7] This issue can be resolved by pressing Ctrl+T in-game.

Change game language[edit]

The Steam version automatically selects the system language with no way of changing it through the Steam client or in-game.
Change game language[8]
  1. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment\LEGOBatman2
  2. If it does not exist, create it (note that if the Key "Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment" already exist, make sure it includes "Bros." instead of "Bros". If not, change it so it contains the period).
  3. Find or create the value LanguageVal with the hexadecimal value with the correct language
    • English: 409
    • Danish: 1030
    • French: 1036
    • Italian: 1040
    • German: 1031
    • Spanish: 1034

Issues unresolved[edit]

AVG False Positive[edit]

A number of users have reported issues with the PC version of the game, whereby the anti-virus program AVG detects the dangerous Win32/Heur virus mid-installation.[9] This is a known false-positive, and AVG are aware of the issue.[10] Users of AVG can safely ignore the warning presented in this case.
