Solving common graphic issues

Post by slpwnd » Thu Mar 26, 2015 9:04 am

This can manifest itself by nonsense graphics or by the game failing to start at all. The most common issue is not enough Video Memory or it being used by other processes.

If the game does not start, solutions 1-4 require you to edit the config-file.
How to edit the config-file
Solution 1, Reducing Memory usage
Solution 2, Force opengl
Solution 3, Reduce graphics quality
Solution 4, Reduce texture size
Steam only launch options

If your issue can be solved by one of those measures, then there is no need to make a new report.
