      Don’t antagonize people just because they did something wrong. Instead, offer a helpful statement.

    You must write -noRedScreens, not -noredscreen

    mine worked but the game wont launch :(( instead it opens up steam and plays the short videos. there should be space between exe» and -noRedScreens.

    WORKS for me, you must copy and paste it with qotest:

    “D:\Games\XCOM 2.exe” -noRedScreens -review

    Works well for me. To be clear with anyone having windows 10 issues; make sure you start by putting a space between the — and the previous target line. Then another space between the the noRedScreens and the following -.thirdly you will make to make sure you’re making the change as the admin or the changes will not take effect. 

    Running windows 10 and had no problem the first time around. Only issue that you will have is how you type in the new command line as the file already exists in your xcom 2 folder. This merely activates it.

    My shortcut had steam://rungameid/268500 and when I added the line it didn’t work. However I did a search for «xcom.exe» file in my Steam directory, then created a shortcut to desktop, then right click properties and added «-noRedScreens -review» in the target field saved and bingo baby.

  15. Lol 03.09.2017 in 17:39

    In n3 change <> to target. It gets confusing

  16. Tumba 04.09.2017 in 20:38

    Yeah, now the red screen didnt appear but the game crash after finishing the mission.

  17. Jimmy 20.12.2017 in 18:14

    Ok, what do you do if there is no «Shortcut» tab in Properties.
