Issues fixed[edit]

Crashing when NPCs enter combat mode[edit]

The installation folder must not be mounted as the drive root in DOSBox; to avoid this mount a folder containing the installation folder, e.g. install the game to C:\Games\Harvest and then mount C:\Games\ as the DOSBox C: drive).

Videos not playing when in full-screen mode[edit]

Go to the Harvester dosbox config file and change the line output=surface to output=overlay
