Issues fixed[edit]

No Music in the Steam Version[edit]

Replace EXE and Add Missing Files[1]
  1. You need to download the missing music files, the DLL the game needs to play them, and a version of the game's EXE that can recognise the DLL and the music files.
  2. Put the DLL into the game's folder, replace the EXE, and put the music in a folder within the main folder, called "Music".

VR support[edit]
