Issues fixed[edit]

Can't save graphics settings on devices with two GPUs[edit]

On devices with two GPUs (e.g. with Nvidia Optimus technology), the game doesn't save graphics settings.

Change GPU Vendor ID and Device ID in config file[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Open Config.ini.
  3. Find DeviceID line. Change it to DeviceID=0xXXXXYYYY, where XXXX is your GPU Vendor ID and YYYY is Device ID. Both these numbers have to be in hexadecimal format.

Notes

To learn your Vendor ID and Device ID, open Device Manager, go to Display adapters and locate your video card. Right click on it, choose Properties, select tab Details and from a list choose Hardware IDs. You will see couple of lines that look like this: PCI\VEN_XXXX&DEV_YYYY&.... XXXX is your Vendor ID and YYYY is your Device ID.
