Issues fixed[edit]

Crashes on launch (OS X)[edit]

Information The game crashes immediately on startup.[4]

Fix Ensure game path does not contain special characters[4]

  • Make sure that The Wolf Among path does not contain the characters / " ! [ or \.

Game does not launch[edit]

Information Telltale Tool games have a problem with Windows 8, which makes the game unable to launch when a controller is plugged in. Although this issue has been fixed in Windows 8.1, a temporary solution is available for Windows 8 users.

Fix Place a .dll file to the installation folder[5]

  1. Download dinput8.dll file from here.
  2. Place dinput8.dll in the installation folder.


Information Do not forget to delete dinput8.dll from the installation folder, after upgrading to Windows 8.1 to avoid future possible problems.

Game does not save[edit]

Information Problem is caused by non-English characters in save game path.[6]

Fix Rename save game path to English characters only[6]
