Turn Off Firewalls and Third-Party Antivirus Utilities

  2. Click Display on the left of the control panel.
  3. Then click Set up G-Sync.

4. Camera and Mouse Don’t Work When Playing Supraland

Erase the GameSettingsSave.sav File

This is a Supraland bug in which players can’t control the game’s camera with mouse. To fix that bug, try deleting Suprland’s GameSettingsSave.sav file. Players can do that in Windows 10 as follows.

  1. First, close Supraland and Steam.
  2. Press the Windows key + E keyboard shortcut.
  3. Enter this path in File Explorer: C:Users<your name>AppDataLocalSupralandSavedSaveGames. Replace ‘<your name>’ with your actual user account name.
  4. Select the GameSettingsSave.sav file, and press the Delete button.
  5. Note that this bug can also be due to Comodo Internet Security that runs some software within a virtual container. Uninstalling that Comodo software, or at least turning off its auto-containment feature, might resolve Supraland’s camera and mouse bug.

The above resolutions can potentially fix four Supraland bugs or issues. Players can also further optimize Supraland with game booster software that will maximize system resources for the game.
