Update released 6/20

We released an update yesterday that should allow you to turn on AA and set Keep Aspect Ratio.

We're still looking into reports of choppy music.

Great job guys...

Can someone explain what's Aspect Ratio?

PS
Are you aware of the FPS drop problem? Will it be fixed?

Aspect Ratio is a ratio of how many pixels wide the screen is to how many pixels high it is. 1680x1050 = 16x105(which is 1680) x 10x105(which is 1050), so it's 16:10 or 16 pixels in width for every 10 pixels in height. 4:3 is standard definition, while 16:10 is wide screen or high definition. Keep Aspect Ratio locks the game to 4:3 resolutions, so if you choose, for example, 1680x1050,it will scale it to the nearest 4:3 resolution. What the purpose of that is I don't know, since most gamers know what resolutions are 4:3 since if they have an standard def monitor it'll be the ones they normally use in games, but it IS an option.

Is there an update for this? I bought the game this week and the music is still choppy. I've tried every level of hardware acceleration but it doesn't make any difference or just gets worse. I've got the latest drivers for the onboard Realtek HD on XP SP2 and have no problems with sound in any other game

Thanks in advance.

An update to my post:

I switched to Vista x64 and have found the sound works correctly now. I'm not sure if it's due to a game update, O/S, or sound driver but I'm not complaining

I bought it while I was using Vista, and it worked perfectly. I recently switched back to XP, and now I'm getting the sound-stuttering that everyone else seems to have.

It definitely seems like a problem with XP.

No problem with the sound here, I'm running Win XP SP2 and an Audigy Sound Card.

Nice update, can't even change the resolution without the game crashing... Bought it months ago and haven't been able to play it without problem yet, talk about a waste of money...

Can anyone tell me if this game works well with Vista 64?

Update: Forget it. I already tried the demo. Didn't enjoyed how the controls work.

Hello everyone, this is my first post : ) I've got an issue with this game: when I die 3 times and get the high score, I type my name but I can't do anything, I press enter but the game doesn't go on, it's stuck in that screen. I mean, not really stuck, I can type and retype my name as long as I want, but I can't go on with the game! help!

That's weird... I usually just use a gamepad for that and press Button #1, but the problem you're getting is weird indeed.
Maybe try with a controller?

Well to be honest with you I don't know, I hope you get the problem solved.
