#4 Transformers: Fall of Cybertron – How to get G1 Retro Pack
While it shouldn’t be a problem to get it but some players seem to have trouble in finding it. All you need to do is select an Optimus mission and select the pack before the game starts (the button that asks you to switch character). It will be change for the whole game. The weapons however, can be found in the Teletran store in the game.

#5 Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Crash – The Game Has Stopped Working
Here are a few things you can try to fix the problem:

  • Head to \Steam\steamapps\common\Transformers Fall of Cybertron\redist and install everything inside the folder.
  • Try running steam as admin
  • We always use the term of “Updated Drivers” but it’s not the only cause that can create the problem. Driver over driver installation can also be problematic sometimes. You can use this tool for the proper removal of all the temporary files of the previous drivers and then do a fresh install.
