Issues fixed[edit]

Random crashing, particularly during third-party DLL injection[edit]

Use REFramework.[2][3]

Stuttering when non-controller devices are removed or inserted[edit]

Use DeviceStutterFix.[2]
Requires REFramework.

Game is more difficult at higher frame rates[edit]

Cap FPS using in-game settings to 30 or 60.[4]
This is likely due to RE Engine, which is known to cause issues with higher then intended frame rates.

Notes

  1. Quests have been adapted for the demo and may differ slightly from the content in the full game.
  2. When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  3. 3.0 3.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/1446780/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (1446780) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
