For help with the PC or Mac version, feel free to check out our Steam discussions, where many problems and solutions are already documented.

Common Issues:

Q: The game is crashing on startup, what should I do?

A: First, try reinstalling the Visual C++ Redistributable, available here. If that doesn't work, try removing your save games & see if it will launch. If that fixes the issue, please email your save files to us so we can try to figure out what went wrong.

Q: Where can I find my save files?

A: On PC they are located here: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\RiverGame\Saved\
On Mac, you can find them here: /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Epic/Rivergame/Saved/SaveGames/

Q: How come I'm not getting any achievements?

A: If you've been playing in early access, your achievement file may not have updated. You can find it in your save game folder. You can remove Achievements.sav and they should start working. We are also working on a number of bugs with achievements.

Q: Are 21:9 or ultra-widescreen monitors supported?

A: The game was built specifically for 16:9 aspect ratios, so while 21:9 technically works, there may be UI bugs. Additionally, Unreal Engine cameras are clamped to be Vert- as opposed to Hor+, so the view on a 21:9 screen will show less at the top and bottom of the screen. If we supported ultra-widescreen monitors, a lot of the additional real estate would be showing edges of the game world that lack art and were never meant to be seen.
