Also using multiple monitors can cause this.

Issues unresolved[edit]

Alt+Tab causes Twitter login fail[edit]

Using Alt+Tab appears to cause loaded tweets to fail.[4]

Non-US keyboard[edit]

Appears to be treating all international keyboards as US keyboards.[5]

Black Backgrounds & Other Missing Graphics/Videos[edit]

May or may not be related to ATI Cards but the game does not display background graphics or intro video.[6] The log lists various information, for example:

Couldn't find scenes/common/messagebox/positions.pnt
  • Verifying steam download results in it attempting to fix but does nothing.
  • Completely reinstalling after deleting local content does not fix.
  • Latest video drivers does not fix.

Some users have had success fixing this by disabling the Catalyst A.I. in the AMD Control Center.[7]

Black Screen Freeze[edit]

The game will sometimes freeze in the transition between areas and at the end of a section. ALT-tabbing out and back works between areas, but when stuck after the second level it can be stuck permanently.


The Steam version comes with the game's soundtrack in MP3 format (FLAC and others available here). This can be access by going to <path-to-game>\soundtrack.
