Issues unresolved[edit]

Minor spoiler ahead.

Missable Youkol relic[edit]

The monastery library's secret compartment and related window permanently close if one leaves the area without having taken the Youkol relic. The game prevents the player from re-lighting the necessary candles, and the item is required in order to progress. Thus, the only solution is to load an earlier save file.

Issues fixed[edit]

Irregular game speed and unsychronized sound[edit]

Certain animations, such as mouth movement, are tied to frame rate. Consequently, at high frame rates, animations appear erratic and sound may become unsychronized.
Limit frame rate
  1. Use (d3d8to9 on Windows10) and set monitor on 60hz.

Black screen in the general store[edit]

The game has a tendency to switch to a black screen after the cutscene in which the general store owner pulls down the ladder leading to the attic, at which point the player is unable to progress.
Restart the game[4]
  1. Restart the game.
  2. Load a save made prior to the cutscene.
  3. Trigger the cutscene again.
Skip the cutscene[5]
  • During the ladder-pull-down cutscene, press Esc multiple times in order to skip to the next scene.

  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>/46510/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (46510) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
