[edit] Alt+Tab causes Twitter login fail

Using Alt+Tab appears to cause loaded tweets to fail.[3]

[edit] Non-US keyboard

Appears to be treating all international keyboards as US keyboards.[4]

[edit] Black Backgrounds & Other Missing Graphics/Videos

May or may not be related to ATI Cards but the game does not display background graphics or intro video.[5] 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.[6]

[edit] Black Screen Freeze

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.

[edit] Soundtrack

The Steam version comes with the games soundtrack in MP3 format (FLAC and others available here). This can be access by going to steamapps\common\superbrothers sword & sworcery ep\soundtrack.
