Issues unresolved[edit]

Auto-updates restarting level progress[edit]

  • Any auto-saved progress during a level will be reset to the beginning of that level when Mark of the Ninja is updated. This is not a bug, but a side-effect of the patching process. Please try to complete the level you are currently playing to avoid losing progress.[2]

Issues fixed[edit]

Xbox 360 gamepad controls show on screen[edit]

Xbox 360 gamepad controls show on screen instead of keyboard & mouse controls
