Issues unresolved[edit]

Launcher is unreadable[edit]

The launcher is unreadable at 1336x768 and lower resolutions.
The launcher is unreadable at 1336x768 and lower resolutions.
The updated launcher was made for 1920x1080. The lower your resolution, the lower will be the available space for text; at 1336x768 and below, the text is so overflowed to become unreadable.
A workaround is to start up jetsetradio.exe directly, though obviously, you won't get the chance to edit the settings.
If you have this issue even at 1920x1080, change your text scaling options in Windows back to 100%.[3]

Saved games cannot be loaded[edit]

Game creates saves normally; however for some people, if JSR is closed, next time the game is opened, attempting to load a save will result in starting at the first tutorial and overwriting the save.
The issue is due to an issue with case sensitivity in the program.
Fix loading function[citation needed]
  1. Open jetsetradio.exe with a hex editor such as HxD.
  2. Go to offset 21D80C.
  3. Change SAVE to save.
  4. Save the changes.
Alternative fix[citation needed]

Rename the "save" folder in folder 205950 (steam folder) to "SAVE".
