Availability[edit]

Essential improvements[edit]

Windows 10 Black Screen / White bars in Options menu[edit]

The options menu is broken on Windows 10, displaying as a black screen, sometimes with white bars
Disable fullscreen optimizations[1]
This should get rid of the white boxes in the options menu. Some users report that it fixes the options menu issue entirely.
  1. Right-click on the game's executable file in its directory (<path-to-game>\w2.exe) and go to Properties -> Compatibility
  2. Tick the "Disable fullscreen optimizations" box
  3. Click Apply, then OK
Change resolution to no higher than 1920x1080[2]
The game (particularly the options menu) seems to have problems running in resolutions higher than 1920x1080. Lowering the resolution can fix the issue.
Some users report being able to enter the Options menu by checking "Run in 640 x 480 screen resolution" in the executable's Compatibility options and changing the resolution in-game. If that doesn't work, try the steps below.
  1. Press WIN KEY + R (on Windows) to make the "Run Prompt" appear
  2. Type regedit then click OK
  3. In the Registry Editor go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Team17DigitalLTD\WormsWorldParty\Options
  4. Change DisplayXSize to 1920 and DisplayYSize to 1080

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 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>/270910/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (270910) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
  2. When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
