If you have a problem with Pressure, please have a look at this list of problems before posting. Maybe we already have a solution.
Problem: The game has strange visual artifacts in the cutscenes and the shop! (see this thread for examples: http://steamcommunity.com/app/224220/discussions/0/828934424270086442/
Happened only on AMD cards so far.
The problem seems to be forced anti aliasing and anisotropic filtering settings in the AMD Control Center. If you set this to "Application controlled" instead of "Override application settings" Pressure should run fine.
A quick guide how to get there:
- open the AMD Vision Engine Control Center
- go to Gaming > 3D Application Settings > System Settings
- switch "Anti-Aliasing Mode" to "Application controlled"
- also switch "Anisotropic Filtering Mode" to "Application controlled"
Problem: The game displays the errormessage "Failed to initialize the engine." and doesn't start.
There was a bug in early versions of the game, which very rarely produced that errormessage, but that was fixed on 31th March 2013. If you still have problems let us know about it and in the meantime run it in windowed mode with this workaround:
Pressure should have created a config file here:
Please edit that file and input this:
fullscreen = 0
resolutionX = 1280
resolutionY = 720
(you can also try different resolutions)
Problem: The game runs slow on my notebook, even though it has a nice dedicated nvidia / AMD graphics card!
The game was probably started with your integrated Intel graphics card. Please make sure to add the Pressure executable to the nvidia optimus / AMD Dynamic Switchable Graphics settings:
nvidia: Open the NVIDIA Control Panel, go to "Manage 3D Settings". Select the "Program Settings" tab and add pressure.exe located in the Steam Library folder (normally Steam\SteamApps\common\pressure\bin\pressure.exe). Then switch the "preferred graphics processor for this program" to "High-performance NVIDIA processor". And don't forget to press the Apply button!!
AMD (I don't have a AMD notebook here, so this description is from screenshots and could be slightly different...)
Open the AMD Vision Engine Control Center and go to the Power category. Go to the "Switchable Graphics" subcategory and click on the "Browse" button to add pressure.exe, located in the Steam Library folder (normally Steam\SteamApps\common\pressure\bin\pressure.exe). Switch the setting for pressure.exe to "High Performance". And don't forget to press the Apply button!!
