Unable To Launch/ Connectivity/ Stuttering Fix

If you have trouble launching, disable Windows Game Bar and overlays from other apps such as Steam, Geforce Experience, or Radeon Overlay.

Also, check if you have the latest gaming redistributables installed and DirectX updated to the latest version. Sometimes a simple computer reboot will also help fix problems.

In order to play this game without problems, you have to download the latest software packages for your device.

If you are on Nvidia visit: Nvidia Drivers [www.nvidia.com]. If you are on AMD visit: AMD Drivers [www.amd.com]. Select your brand, update your device and you’ll be ready to play without issue.

If you are having issues connecting with your friend while playing together, try port forwarding in your router to help with steam connectivity.

Other than that, the game might need a patch. Also, if you are using Gsync/Freesync, it works to use an FPS limiter to your specific refresh rate to eliminate stuttering. Or just use Vsync. That will help.

    1. Try this setting if you cannot move the cursor between two screens: Right-click on your desktop, and click “display” – you should be able to see the two monitors there. Click detect so it shows you which one is which. You can then click and drag the monitor into the position that matches the physical layout. Once done, try to move your mouse there and see if this works!
