Frequently Asked Questions

  1. I have a NVIDIA however the graphic settings are auto detected as lowest. How to solve this issue?  
It is required to manualy add the game executable CTK.exe (or CTK_steam.exe, or CTKd_steam.exe) to the NVIDIA control panel and select the preferred graphics processor to 'High performance NVIDIA processor' (when applicable) and/or set the options to 'High Performance' (when applicable).

Open (Run) 'NVIDIA Control Panel' -> 'Manage 3D settings' -> 'Program Settings' -> 'add' -> (select program) -> 'Add Selected Program'. Then set the preferred graphics processor and/or 'High Performance' in the settings menus below. To save the settings click 'Apply' at the bottom of the Control Panel.

In case the game is not listed in the (select program) menu you can 'Browse' to the directory of the game executables and add it to the list, default directories are:
   'C:\Program Files (x86)\ClansToKingdoms'
   'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Clans to Kingdoms'

  4. How to start a multiplayer game?  
Please check the demonstration video in YouTube for a brief introduction to start multiplayer games. Computers must be connected to LAN/Internet before starting the game and when prompted by the firewall it is required to add a exception so that the game can access the network.

  5. When 'Searching Internet' to join a multiplayer game I get an error 'cannot connect to server', how to solve this?  
This message was showing when no games are listed in server, this glitch is now solved from server side. When no games are listed in the server you should now get no text on the top of the menu or the text 'no new games found'.

When starting a new multiplayer game ensure the 'allied victory' option is ticked. When meeting other players in-game change your diplomatic stance to allies. Please check the demonstration video in YouTube that contains a brief example.

Disable army movement animations in the options of the new game menu (or load game menu) for faster end turns.

- ensure the mouse is plugged in before starting the game;
- ensure 'mouse acceleration' is disabled (bottom of Control Settings menu);
- ensure the graphics settings are not too high for your computer, will make everything halting/lagging.
