1# Low Performance, Low FPS, Game Stuttering
If you are running the game in DirectX 11, you will almost certainly experience low performance and low FPS on your machine. So, if you prefer smooth gameplay over graphics, turn off DirectX 11, and run the game, you will see much improvement.

2# Performing First Time Setup – Installing .Net Framework
Batman Arkham City will check if all the pre-requisites are installed and may perform a first time check up operation, leading to installation of these pre-reqs. Patience is the key here, it can take a lot of time, so better grab some pop corn and watch House, while you are at it.

3# How To Change Video Settings DirectX 11
Configure > Options > Video

4# Xbox 360 Controller Fix

5# Crash To Desktop – GFWL Fix
Make sure you have updated DirectX and Video Card drivers. Install the latest GFWL redistributable. Check Nvidia or ATI for the latest drivers.

6# Batman Arkham City Save Game Bug
Make sure you make a back up copy of your save game files because after consoles save games on PC are also disappearing. Save Game files can be found here:

\Steam\userdata\(sequence of numbers)\57400\remote\(profilename).sgd

7# Xbox 360 Controller Doesn’t Work
Unplug your other USB controllers and it would start working.

8# Batman Arkham City Voice Bug – No Lip Sync
Set your audio quality to 41K 32bit and change audio setting to Stereo from 5.1/2.1 to resolve all sound related bugs.

9# Games For Windows Crash To Desktop
Check Games For Windows Live troubleshooting tips posted above and you will find a way to fix this issue.
