Notes

  1. Unity engine build: 2019.3.4f1Verified by User:Expack3 on 2020-06-13
  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>/962580/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (962580) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

    Warning thrown through the SKIF tool of Special K.
  2. Verified by User:Aemony on 2020-06-20
    Main menu background seems to be aligned to the left and not cover the whole screen, and the animated cutscenes are cut on top and bottom, but besides that everything else seems to work and scale correctly to the wider aspect ratio.
  3. Verified by User:Aemony on 2020-06-13
    This issue does not affect many elements, but it does most noticeably affect the button prompts shown when interacting with an item, where the button prompt is much smaller than expected and in relation to the rest of the UI.

    Through a display mode switch in Windows, the game ended up locked to 1024x768 for me. I used this method to fix it.
  6. Verified by User:Expack3 on 2020-06-20
    Game does not respect the -screen-width and -screen-height command-line parameters, thus requiring this method.
  7. Verified by User:Aemony on 2020-06-21
    V2 tested. Bluetooth could not be tested due to weird disconnects experienced in Windows itself when trying to connect the controller.
  8. Verified by User:Aemony on 2020-06-21
    No rumble felt throughout the two hours of gameplay at the beginning.
  9. Verified by User:Aemony on 2020-06-13
    Determined using Special K and monitoring the audio levels of each individual channel of a virtual 7.1 audio device exposed through Razer Surround.

    Tested using Win32 port of Linux file command.

    Found InControl DLLs in game's Plugins folder.
