Issues Fixed[edit]

Heavy stuttering during gameplay or freeze while loading game unless a gamepad is plugged into the system[edit]

This is caused by the engine incorrectly overpolling the USB I/O in Windows in keyboard and mouse mode.
Plug a gamepad into the system[3]

Issue does not arise if the game detects a gamepad plugged into the system. Keyboard and mouse can still be used to play the game as long as a gamepad is present. This may be complicated on Windows 7 and earlier due to Xinput support issues.

Disable unused HID devices in Device Manager[4]
  1. Open the Start screen/Start menu, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.
  2. Select "Human Interface Devices". Disable all "HID-compliant consumer control device" and "HID compliant device" ("HID compliant vendor defined device" in Windows 10), you should not need to disable anything else.
It is advised to re-enable the devices after the game has closed.

    "In Japan Cavia released extra costumes and bonus stages, entirely for free on XBL. This consisted of: six stages with unique goals, such as defeating a certain number of hidden enemies or reaching an area unscathed. Remixed versions of five regular levels, titled Extra Edition, which made them more difficult. Finally, the ability to play any of the standard levels with the most powerful magic, which you’d normally only receive near the end. A total of 17 micro downloads. What Atari did was then charge for them in the Western release. Admittedly they’re only 20 points ($0.25) each, meaning it’s 340 points ($4.25) for all DLC, but still, it’s the principle of the matter."

    Used a Logitech F310 in DirectInput mode and the game registered input from it and used the configuration from my Xbox One controller.
