We've gotten some players having trouble running Cognition on 64-bit systems, especially with the intro of Windows 10.

One of the reasons is that 64-bit systems graphics rendering make more use of multithreading, which can confuse the engine Cognition is built on.

One way to circumvent the issue is to force Cognition to only use one thread.

Make or find the Cognition shortcut on your desktop.
Right-click the shortcut and choose Properties.
In the Target box add " -force-gfx-direct " after "Cognition Episode 1.exe".  (Cognition Episode 1.exe" -force-gfx-direct)
Click Ok.

Then start the game using that shortcut.
