Issues fixed[edit]

Black screen / monitor can't handle the resolution[edit]

This issue should be resolved in version 1.1.0.[citation needed]
Disable custom resolutions / downsampling[2]
  • If you're using custom resolution and/or downsampling, disable it.
Replace a config file[2]
  1. Download and extract this config file.
  2. Replace your current config file with a newly downloaded one (See configuration file location).
  3. Do not enable the fullscreen mode, instead use Borderless Gaming.

Can't see menus / overlays[edit]

Disable anti-aliasing[citation needed]
  • If you're forcing anti-aliasing from graphics card control panel - disable it.
Copy the font files to your account[3]
This issue was introduced in version 2.0.
  • If the game was installed as a different user than the one used to run it then the font files installed in the user folder of the user that installed the game need to be copied to the user folder of the user that is running it. To do that, copy %USERPROFILE%\Documents\This War of Mine\ of the user that installed the game to the %USERPROFILE%\Documents\ folder of the user that is running the game.

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 screen refresh rate[citation needed]
  1. Install Special K by following the Special K Unofficial Guide.
  2. Start the game once and close it immediately to allow the configuration file of Special K to be created.
  3. Open <path-to-game>\d3d9.ini or %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Mods\SpecialK\Profiles\This War of Mine.exe\SpecialK.ini depending on the installation method you used.
  4. Change RefreshRate=-1 to RefreshRate=0 under [Render.FrameRate].
