- The game's launcher allows to rebind all the buttons as well as triggers. However the game uses DirectInput, instead of modern XInput API - because of that, it's highly recommended not to bind Look / Draw Weapon to Left Trigger and Attack to Right Trigger, as pressing both will result in no action being taken.

Infinite weapon wheel spinning bug
- Needs confirmation
While you're ingame and the wheel doesn't stop spinning, unplug all controllers and Close XInput Emulators.
If the problem isn't fixed restart the game and then cycle through the weapon wheel with your keyboard bindings.
Alternately you can use DPfix to turn off controller support, which completely solves this issue|

Crash at the begin of Episode 2 Chapter 9 corrupts savegame
A common occurrence is for the game to crash during the cutscenes at the start of Episode 2 Chapter 9 (the chapter starts right after you unlock the office in the Art Gallery and the cutscene with Diane plays) and corrupt the save file. The cutscenes should be skipped to avoid this.
A save file made right after these cutscenes is available here.
