Issues fixed[edit]

Mouse control lost after alt-tabbing[edit]

Enable "Run the game in a window" in the settings section of the launcher[citation needed]
  • If you see window borders in-game, press Alt+ Enter to change to a fullscreen window.

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

The game may default the monitor's refresh rate to 60 Hz, resulting in reduced smoothness on high refresh rate monitors even if internal GPU render shows a high FPS.
Set refresh rate manually[citation needed]
  1. Use the -hz=120 command line argument, where 120 is the screen refresh rate.
  2. Alternatively, if your monitor has a manual refresh rate toggle button, you can use that to switch to a higher refresh rate.
  3. Alternatively, you can disable fullscreen optimizations in the compatibility options for ZAT.exe in the bin folder.
