Issues fixed[edit]

Black screen or crash on launch[edit]

AMD users: Update display drivers to 18.8.1 or newer[1]

Frame rate drops while using v398.82 or newer display drivers (Nvidia only)[edit]

The latest Nvidia drivers have specific overrides for the game that causes frame rate losses in some areas.[2]
This has been fixed in v411.63[3]
If you cannot upgrade, use Nvidia Profile Inspector to set 0x0094C538 and 0x105E2A1D to 0x0.

Low texture resolutions[edit]

Update the game as this is fixed as of build 167353.[4]

Bad CPU utilization[edit]

If using Windows 10, switching to DirectX 12 may yield better performance and CPU utilization.

Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
