- Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) support status is unknown.
- This issue only appears with AMD Radeon cards, updating to the latest driver might fix it.
Game runs too fast
- Game is designed to run with 60 Hz monitor running 60 FPS with vsync. With higher refresh rates this means game will run faster.
- Sometimes simply playing with fullscreen mode fixes the issue.
- Either cap frame rate to 60 FPS externally or use games internal capper.
