Issues fixed[edit]

Stuttering mouse[edit]

All Adventure Game Studios games have stuttering mouse problems when Logitech SetPoint is enabled. Exit SetPoint while the game is running, or disable/uninstall it altogether.

Replacement save games[edit]

The developer has released a number of save games (to help those whose save games were made incompatible with an update). These are listed in a post by Wadjet Eye Games on the Steam forums. Unzip the save game files in one of the above folders.
