Controller support[edit]

If your view rotates on its own (caused by a gamepad or joystick outputting data outside the 'deadzone'), your controller vibrates or other random actions, there's a good chance the game is accepting input from your gamepad or joystick.

Disable controller input[3]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open PCClient-MNCEngine.ini.
  3. Change AllowJoystickInput=1 to AllowJoystickInput=0
  4. Save your changes.

Issues fixed[edit]

Crash on load screen (Nvidia)[edit]

The game fails to open on launch with some older Nvidia drivers. There are two known solutions:

Update graphics driver[citation needed]

Update to the latest Nvidia drivers. This appears to fix the issue.

Upgrade PhysX[citation needed]

Upgrade the Nvidia PhysX System Software.

Steam fails to update[edit]

Occasionally, Steam will not correctly update Super MNC after a patch is released. If this happens you will be able to launch the game, but you will not be able to enter a match with anyone who has updated successfully; furthermore the free pros available on the shop screen will not match the current rotation.

Force Steam to update[citation needed]
  1. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\
  2. Delete or rename AppUpdateStatus.blob.
  3. Restart Steam.
  4. Steam will now check that all the games in your library are updated, and will start downloading the update for Super MNC.

Notes

  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>/104700/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (104700) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
