    • Software Inc
The game is slow/crashing on my laptop
If you are running the game on a Windows laptop with a dedicated graphics card (minimum requirements), it has very likely been disabled for Software Inc. to save battery (and possibly many other games). You need to find your graphics options and enable it specifically for "Software Inc.exe" to make sure the game runs smoothly.

Crashing or lagging
  • Make sure all your drivers are up to date, especially for your graphics card
  • Try rebooting...
  • Try right clicking the game in your Steam library, go to properties local files and click verify integrity of game cache
  • Try right clicking the game in your Steam library, go to properties and disable the Steam overlay.
  • Try temporarily disabling your antivirus software while running Software Inc.
  • Remove unused USB peripherals
Windows specific
  • If you have an Nvidia graphics card, try going to the NVIDIA Control Panel - > Adjust desktop size and position, and play with the scaling settings
  • Try running the game with "-force-d3d9", by setting it in the launch options for Software Inc. in your Steam library.
  • Try running the game with "-force-gfx-direct", this will most likely impact performance and I suggest posting in this forum if the game is too slow.
Linux specific
  • Try the launch parameter "-force-opengl", by setting it in the launch options for Software Inc. in your Steam library.
  • Try adding "-screen-fullscreen 1 -screen-width 1920 -screen-height 1080 -disableresolution" to the launch parameter, but switch out 1920 and 1080 with your screen resolution.
  • Make sure you don't have any other applications running in the background, which could interfere with Software Inc., like Chrome.
  • Check that PulseAudio is installed and running and that your graphics driver is in working condition.
  • Try the launch parameter "-force-gfx-st", by setting it in the launch options for Software Inc. in your Steam library.
OSX specific
  • Try CMD+tabbing in and out of the game if it hangs on startup.

Text is missing in Linux
Only Ubuntu is officially supported, other distros are known to cause issues due to them not being supported by Unity. In most cases, it can be solved by sticking to fullscreen.
