    Using a controller to remap controls actually allows only keyboard/mouse rebinding.

    "Also: my nintrendo switch pro controller gets handled as a Xbox controller. So A is B, X is Y and it's.. annoying D: I wish I could just edit the button layout"

    "We have been working hard to fix the infamous Yellow Screen of Death. And I can give you hope: A fix is under way and will hopefully be released with version 1.03.
    There are some things to consider though: The error was caused by the boat's position being invalid (NaN/Infinity for those who care). But (!) we were not able to reliably reproduce the issue, thus we couldn't find out what exactly caused its position to become invalid. Therefore we could only implement fail safe mechanics to prevent the invalid position from actually being used and causing the error, should the issue come up again."

    "- Fixed an issue that would cause the screen to glitch out while rowing the boat, also known as the Yellow Screen of Death."
