Issues fixed[edit]

Issues and their fixes were found on an official post from the developers on the Steam Community Discussions. If issues persist after the suggested fix, it is recommended to take the issue there and then add the fix to this page.

Connection timed out[edit]

A simple reset of your Router and PC may resolve this issue so please try this before configuring any ports.

This may be a problem with certain Steam ports being restricted on your router/firewall. Please read steam FAQ with information about specific ports that may need configured.

Failed to initialize d3d11 error 0[edit]

Most often the origin of the problem is either DirectX or drivers - make sure your DirectX and drivers are up to date.

Update DirectX and drivers[citation needed]
  • Update your DirectX
  • Update your graphics drivers
  • Update your sound drivers

Laptops with Intel graphics[edit]

According to the Intel website the latest version is

You should be able to find downloads and instructions for installing updated the driver on your system here.

If it tells you that you cannot use these drivers because your system manufacturer has updated ones, you can try to find updated ones on your manufacturer website, however if the latest ones there are still over a year old, the game may not play.

The last thing you can try is following the instructions on the Intel website here to install the latest generic drivers.

Follow the instructions at the bottom of the page for the Work-around, the exact instructions depends on your operating system but typically involves: 1. Finding the driver .zip file. 2. Extracting the drivers manually using a .zip program. 3. Using the 'Install with a disk' method of driver installation.

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

Fullscreen mode defaults to 60 Hz, even if the screen refresh rate is set higher than that.
Set refresh rate manually[citation needed]

Use the -hz=120 command line argument, where 120 is the screen refresh rate.
