My screen is blank when I open Warfork

This generally means your video card cannot run Warfork with its default configuration settings. The following solutions may fix this problem:

  1. Add the following to game properties in Steam: +exec profiles/ultralow
  2. Update your video card drivers

The game won't display on any of my screens

Try checking the config file in your documents folder, and search for this line seta vid_multiscreen_head . If it is set to "-1" then you will want to try changing it to 1 or 2 based on what is your main monitor.

I'm seeing "pure check failed" when a server I connect to attempts to download a map.

There are multiple reasons why pure check could fail. This error message means the file on client's PC doesn't match with server's.
The following solutions may fix this problem:

  1. Add +set fs_usehomedir 0 to Warfork's launch options on Steam.
  2. Remove all downloaded files. More information can be found here.
  3. (Server admin only) Disable sv_pure (Not recommended on public servers)
