  2. 2.0 2.1 Notes regarding Steam Play (Linux) data:


  1. How General Arcade updated From Software classic Metal Wolf Chaos for Devolver Digital - last accessed on 2019-11-26
    "For example, the development team used a 14-year-old version of 3ds Max and they built a special plugin for it so we had to figure out how to build the plugin first, how to connect it to the old version of resources and the new version of 3D Max because we use a different rendering engine - we use PhyreEngine from Sony - we need to convert all the assets to the new format for the rendering engine to use it more efficiently."

  3. I see 16:9 support is listed... - Steam Community Discussions - last accessed on 2019-07-06
  4. General Arcade on Twitter: "HUD located same place as on 16:9, so it stays in peripheral vision. In-game cut scenes full render in ultra wide. Menues centered." - last accessed on 2019-07-31
  5. General Arcade on Twitter: "Yes, borderless fullscreen supported" - last accessed on 2019-08-01
  6. From Software Gives An Update On Metal Wolf Chaos XD - last accessed on 2019-07-02
