Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/1235140/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (1235140) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

    Mouse acceleration is seemingly being used with camera movements.
  3. Verified by User:KingKrouch on 2020-11-11
    While both a controller and keyboard/mouse can be used simultaneously, the mouse cursor will disappear in menus when using the gamepad, and input glyphs change between KB/M and controller (although this doesn't occur when simply using the mouse to move the camera).
