Essential improvements[edit]

Skip intro sequence[edit]

By default, the game will display an unskippable logo and require pressing a key before being able to access the title screen.
Skip intro sequence
  1. Download the patched Assembly-CSharp.dll from Ace Attorney Trilogy: Intro Skip.
  2. Back up (optional) and replace Assembly-CSharp.dll at <path-to-game>\PWAAT_Data\Managed\.

Prevent sped-up animations on high refresh rate monitors[edit]

Running the game on a monitor with higher refresh rate than 60 Hz will normally cause the animations and text to run at much higher speeds.
Disable V-Sync in-game (locks game to 60Hz)[2]

From the main menu:

  1. Go to Options
  2. Select "More Options" or click the yellow double-arrow on the right side of the screen
  3. Select "Vertical Sync" and set it to "Off"

Make textboxes semi-transparent to see animations[edit]

Set Text Box transparency to High[2]

  2. Scroll down to Text Box and set it to "High"

Notes

  1. Unity engine build: 2017.4.8f1[1]
  2. 2.0 2.1 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>/787480/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (787480) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
