Issues fixed[edit]

Native resolution not available[edit]

On some aspect ratios (e.g. 16:10) the native desktop resolution may not be available in-game which results in blurry visuals.
Use borderless fullscreen windowed tools[2]
  1. Download a borderless fullscreen windowed tool like SRWE.
  2. Start the game and disable fullscreen mode.
  3. Switch to the tool and adjust the window size to the desktops fullscreen resolution.

Notes

Forcing a resolution must be done inside the main menu before loading a save game.
The cards in the main menu may still look blurry. This is fixed after the first loading screen.

Issues unresolved[edit]

Stuttering on enemies turn[edit]

During an enemies turn the framerate may drop until a card has been played.[2][3]

Notes

  1. Unity engine build: 2018.2.1f1[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>/973760/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (973760) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
