Missing, Invisible or Laggy UI

UI界面消失,不见或者很卡

This is usually an issue that occurs when you have both an in-built and dedicated graphics card in your system. In this case some settings will need to be changed in your graphics control panel to ensure WFTO uses the correct graphics card.

Please note these faults are a result of the CoherentUI Middleware used for the game and not directly related to WFTO itself.


Solution 1: Forcing WFTO to use the most powerful GPU in your computer


Follow the instructions below based on what GPU you have (NVidia or AMD).


How to force the more powerful AMD GPU to turn on:

  1. First, go to the AMD website[support.amd.com] and download and install the latest drivers for your GPU.
  2. Right click on your desktop -> Select "AMD Catalyst Control Center"
    This should open your graphics card control panel.
  3. Select "Power" -> "Switchable Graphics".
  4. In the page displayed, disable Switchable Graphics.
  5. Launch the game to test.

How to force the more powerful NVidia GPU to turn on:

  1. First, go to the NVidia website[www.nvidia.co.uk] and install the latest drivers for your GPU.
  2. Right click on your desktop -> Select "NVIDIA Control Panel"
    This should open your graphics card control panel.
  3. Select "3D settings" -> "Manage 3D settings" -> "Global settings".
    In the drop-down menu "Preferred graphic processor" select "High-performance NVIDIA processor" instead of "Auto-select".
  4. Launch the game to test.

If the above doesn't work you can attempt to force the switch specifically on WFTO.


Forcing WFTO to use your Nvidia GPU


  1. Open Nvidia control panel as above
  2. Select 3D Settings and reset your settings to default
  3. Select "Program Settings" tab from the 3D Settings menu
  4. Add WFTOGame.exe from your WFTO Directory (You can find this by right clicking the game in steam, going to properties and clicking "Browse local files")
  5. In addition be sure to add "CoherentUI_Host.exe" with the same settings below.
  6. Select "High-performance Nvidia Processor" as the preferred graphic processor as above.

Solution 2: Forcing DirectX rendering mode

  1. Right click the game in your steam library and go to properties
  2. Click "Set launch options"
  3. Add "-force-d3d9" in this box (No quotation marks)
  4. If this fails and you have a DX11 compatible GPU then add "-force-d3d11" instead.


Solution 3: Disable AMD Crossfire

Users with two AMD graphics cards may find that they will have to disable AMD Crossfire.

Solution 4: Create a bug report

If all of the above steps fail then please submit a bug report
