Issues fixed

Game fails to proceed to next checkpoint in certain missions

This issue mostly arises in missions where you have to escort or guard friendly AIs. Its' cause is most likely a softlock caused when the player rushes too quickly through a level, not considering the AI. To prevent the game softlocking, stay close to the AIs and kill every enemy you see to make sure the AI proceeds with you.[8]

    No setting in-game.While there is a UseVSYNC line in the HOVEngine.ini file, it seems to do nothing, as it does not limit frame rate to the display's refresh rate.

  4. Verified by User:SojerManLan on 2021-09-30
    Tested with this fix. After enabling high frame rate, killed enemies' ragdolls spin and bounce through the map areas.

  6. Verified by User:SojerManLan on 2021-09-30
    Tested with a Xbox One controller. The game does allow using a controller in the menu and assigning buttons to some actions, but movement cannot be assigned, essentially making it impossible to play with a controller.
  7. Verified by User:SojerManLan on 2021-09-30
    Upon changing to another window, the game mutes all sounds.
