Issues unresolved

As the game is in development, unresolved issues and bugs can be expected. To report new issues, post in the appropriate forum for bugs or crashes.

The game switches to second monitor after changing any video settings

  • Currently undersolved, although reported.[11] This may be problematic when the monitor to which the game switches is of lower resolution. To work around this issue apply new settings, exit the game, navigate to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Postal4\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\ and edit GameUserSettings.ini with a text editor. Input the resolution of the main monitor in the fields ResolutionSizeX and ResolutionSizeY and avoid changing the settings from this point. If needed, repeat these steps.[12]

Notes

  1. Unreal Engine 4 engine build: 4.27.2.0[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>/707030/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (707030) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
