How to enable Vsync

Make sure the game is set to Fullscreen mode. If it’s set to windowed or borderless windowed Vsync won’t be available.

How to disable anti aliasing (Nvidia)

Open Nvidia control panel, go to “3D Settings”, then “Manage 3D Settings”. Scroll down to “Antialiasing – Mode”. By default it will say “application controlled”. Clicking this will show a drop-down menu. Select “override application settings”.

FXAA and MFAA will be available from the same settings list. Once you’ve set Antialiasing – mode to “override”, turn on the one you want to use. “Antiasliasing – Setting” will let you choose the # of AA samples.

If you switch the top tab from “Global Settings” to “Program Settings” you can set it to do this only for this game, if you want.

Gameplay Tips

How to cancel a throw

On the mothership under archives-abilities- cancel Psi-power it literally says to press R or Y on controller.

Infinite Flight bug

If you fly until the jetpack runs out of energy, press the escape button (Or I assume start on controller), Crypto will stop moving for a moment and the jetpack will fold away, but the fuel gets completely refilled. You can go so high you fail the mission because you leave the zone.

How the disguise system works

You have a very small window to use your disguise before you loose it, but the time can be reset by reading minds. Any mind will do, even chickens.

If you use any weapon or power while being watched, which is noted by an eyeball on your radar, your disguise will be broken until you kill or otherwise distract anyone with a mark over their head. It’s usually best to just fall back to a discrete location and take another disguise after your wanted level goes away though, a lot less hassle.

How do you get more ammo for the disintegrator ray

You have to transmorgrify objects to get more ammo for your weapons, it’s a change from the original where ammo pickups were just lying around the levels. If you are playing with an Xbox controller, you just press X when targeting an object to turn it into ammo.

How to deactivate Holobob

It’s ‘G’ on KB+M, might be hold D-pad up on controller? *EDIT* It’s hold ‘B’ to cancel on controller.

How to unlock zerofriction

Just keep doing missions, you got zerofriction unlocked during the area 42 missions.
