Alt+Tab causes Twitter login fail
Using Alt+Tab ↹ appears to cause loaded tweets to fail.

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. 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.
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.
The Steam version comes with the games soundtrack in MP3 format (FLAC and others available here). This can be access by going to
