Issue #1:
My mouse lags in-game! I can't control the game like this!

Solution:
Navigate to your configuration.ini in your My Documents\Achron folder and replace the line

OSDrawnMouse=0
with
OSDrawnMouse=1

This will cause the cursor to be rendered by Windows and get rid of any cursor lag.

Issue #2:
My game performance is choppier than it should be!

Possible Solution:
Navigate to your configuration.ini in your My Documents\Achron folder and replace the line

TargetFrameRate=200
with
TargetFrameRate=60

This helped me drastically improve performance on my GeForce 9800 GTX+, and it may help other GeForce users as well.

Issue #3:
I cannot find a multi-player game/I have questions that I want to ask the Achron community!

Solution:
Since Achron is sorta small right now, you have to get in touch with the community over the forums or means of the Internet Relay Chat (IRC).
To enter the chat room in order to get help or arrange matches with other players, visit:

irc.coldfront.net #achron

If you do not have an IRC client, you can enter the chat in your browser by visiting this page (http://widget.mibbit.com/?server=irc.coldfront.net&channel=%23achron).

Issue #4:
After I went back in time, my units keep disobeying me and overriding my new orders with ones I've already given before! This is confusing!

Solution:
The units remember orders that you have given them and will always execute them when the time is right. This may lead to conflicts when you issue orders that become overridden by those that you have already given before.

If you want to override future orders in order to issue new ones, double-tap Z to undo all future orders on the selected unit(s). That way the unit will no longer perform any of the orders you have given it in the future, and you can employ a completely different strategy.

If you have other issues/questions, ask away. I will edit the first post with more info as necessary.
