[BUGLIST] List of bugs

So I decided to make a list of all the bugs and problems so far with the game, feel free to add the ones you think are missing by posting here:
  1. The tutorial after the first step when you must heal yourself it won't show you that you must cut the rope to continue, altough it is shown in the DEMO.
  2. Strange (R) characters inbetween the text lines, which were not present in the demo.Thread here
  3. - Online feature is very buggy with things like (at least I experienced)
    • Characters getting stuck (this might very well happen in single player) at the desks in Vlad's classroom
    • takes a while to change scenario, such as going "downstairs for the party"
    • Cannot connect to servers, crashes after trying to connect or just hangs up with no response, needing to finish task
    • Unability to host as stated in This thread

  4. Certain NPCs behaving like this Click here
  5. Cannot launch game from steam, after crashing or simply cannot at all.
  6. Middle Mouse button doesn't work at all for some users, making them unable to cast spells on themselves. Thread here
  7. Text bugs showing "not found" on every text line
  8. Game crashes/hangs when picking up a tome in challenge mode- Thread here
  9. Menu doesn't work for some users, this image is shown when to the menu screen and cannot click on anything. Thread here/Image here

PERFORMANCE
  1. Overall poor performance even with system specs greatly above recommended settings
  2. Stutering of the screen when scrolling (moving) that is not solved by forcing enable of vertical synchronization.
  3. Random slowdowns with no apparent reason, (I personally experienced this)
    D3D override fixes the stutering but some users have reported not to work.

Try these "hotfixes" and see if some of the bugs are solved:
INSTALL XNA/.NET framework/DirectX Thread here

D3D Override (try it anyways) Thread here

please add more since this list is completely incomplete and missing possible fixes.

Oh and paradox__rep please check this thread for list of bugs to forward to devs, I'll be constantly editing the post according to what users say in this thread.

- Middle Mouse Button does not do anything for many users. Thus it is impossible to cast any spells on ourselves

Achievements are different, since they're not gamebreaking bugs, I got it after completing a mission for the

Menu text is replaced by error codes (Not Found: numbers) and the game does not go beyond the intro.

As you stated in your thread, D3D override didn't work, or was it that you didn't configure it properly?

For stuttering problems, ATI users can enable "Triple Buffering" in the ATI Catalyst Control Center. Worked for me!

Lack of accents on french translation so you read "NIVEAU TERMIN" instead of "NIVEAU TERMINE"

you should add a suggestion part... as many people ask for a configurable mouse7keyboard layout... it's not a bug but would be nice to be "fixed"...

also you should put a link to this thread: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...php?p=20468826

as some people might report "bugs" which aren't bugs at all, just by an incomplete "setup"...

btw... someone should make this thread "sticky"

I'm not sure how to do Spoiler Text and I don't know the answer to your question, but I suspect the question you should be asking yourself is: Exactly how many side-quests are there in this game?

I didnt use the fix, i was just mentioning it.

In my case, the game shutters for no reason randomly when it feels like it

It doesnt matter what settings i use, i've tried running it on all low/off, medium or even high

Sometimes it's smooth, sometimes it lags like hell

At the start of Chapter 3, after dying once, i skipped the cutscene. When I moved to the first set of enemies, I entered a cutscene that didn't happen the first time, and was locked in place invincible while the enemies went to town, ultimately killing most of each other trying to hurt me.
