Verify integrity of game cache

If you are having problems getting the game to launch or you are experiencing random crashes, it might be that the game did not install correctly or that some of your local game data has become corrupt. Please use Steam’s validation check at least twice as it can sometimes, incorrectly, report no problems on its first pass.

1. Load Steam
2. From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
3. Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game cache... button.
4. Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes.
5. Once the process is completed, the Check Window will automatically exit.


Update your Graphics Drivers

Visit your graphic card manufacturers' website to locate, download and install the latest available drivers. In some instances, you may be required to locate manufacturer specific drivers. Should this be the case, please manually locate your system model on the official Downloads and Drivers site for your manufacturer. Please note that these can often be a few revisions behind the reference driver.

For help on updating your drivers, please follow the appropriate steps below depending on your card manufacturer.


Windows PC

ATI/AMD Driver Update
1. Go to http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/auto_detect.aspx
2. Install ‘AMD Driver Autodetect’ application.
3. Select yes on to allow application to run if prompt appears.
4. Select ‘Download Now’ and follow the steps to install the driver.
5. Restart your computer, if necessary after installation of drivers.

NVIDIA Driver Update
1. Go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
2. Select ‘Graphics Drivers’ on option 2.
3. Give permission for java to run.
4. Give permission for GPU_Reader to run.
5. If the tool finds that you need to update your drivers, follow the instructions to install.
6. If the tool is unable to evaluate your system, please go back to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us and manually select your graphics card information via option 1.

Intel Driver Update
1. Go to http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx?lang=eng
2. Select the ‘Continue’ button underneath ‘Intel® Driver Update Utility’
3. Select the button in the centre of the screen titled ‘Check your system for the latest updates’.
4. Give permission to run Java.
5. Give permission to run Java plug-in ‘SysReqLab.cab’ (or System Requirement Lab).
6. Download any new versions of drivers for your Intel graphics card.

Integrated graphics
Some graphical issues can be caused by the game running through integrated Intel graphics cards as opposed to high-performance NVIDIA/ATI cards.

If you want to run the game through your dedicated graphics card, you will need to refer to your computers manufacturer’s documents or instructions if you are unsure on how to do this, or contact the manufacturer directly if you do not have these documents. Please be aware that this process can be different with each machine. Below are some sites that you may find useful:

• Acer machines with ATI: http://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/19271/kw/amd
• HP machines with ATI: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03048374&cc=uk&dlc=en&lc=en
• Dell machines with Nvidia: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&docid=125975&doclang=en&l=en&s=gen&cs=


Mac OSX

1. Expand the Apple Menu by clicking the Apple icon in the top left of the screen
2. Select Software Update
3. Proceed to install all available updates


Linux

Ubuntu 13.04: System Settings > Software & Updates > Additional Drivers

Once you have navigated as above, you will be presented with a closed source driver list, including recommendations.
Please select and download the appropriate drivers where necessary.

For AMD cards:
Please follow the instructions found on this page - http://www2.ati.com/relnotes/catalyst_linux_installer.pdf

Hey there, Worms Reloaded does not support cross-platform play. Any games that support this feature will list 'Cross-Platform Multiplayer' in the right-hand store information panel. There's a list of games which feature cross-platform multiplayer here: http://store.steampowered.com/search/?os=mac&category1=998&category2=27#category1=998&category2=27&advanced=0&sort_order=ASC&page=1.

I am having problems with running this game. I think it is just a resolution problem but it is not allowing me to start the game using -windowed. Any suggestions? As of now it shows about 1/4 of the game screen and messes with my mouse cursor.
