Exclamation Dead Island Bugs and Glitches - Unofficial thread

We should probably start putting the bugs all in one place, that way I hope the devs read it.

Please report any bugs you see and please provide as much detail as possible, including your Computer specs. Pardon me for my lack of organization.

I have also included a number of POSSIBLE fixes and will add more if people report them.

How bout the game locking up for seconds at a time for some unknown reason and randomly crashing so much so I can only play for minutes at a time. (When I say "locking up" I mean the game freezes but eventually starts again. No crash) Do they count?

Add in the mouse sensitivity bug. In menus it keeps the original resolution mouse sensitivity so in game your mouse will go fine. In menus you'll need to drag your mouse from here to china to get the pointer halfway across the screen. Only happens as you go to higher resolutions. Im at 1920x1080 and picking anything in menus is a chore and a half.

I am running it on my lappy, an Alienware M17x R2 (dual Radeon 5870's in CF) with latest drivers. Guess i'll have to wait to try it on my desktop.

When playing as a female character the storyline sometimes still refers you as a "he".

4 minutes into the first quest, on the beach, crash to desktop for no reason whatsoever. Happens the first time the game wants to save.

Did anyone else have the move right key binded to LMB instead of D? It makes no sense to have every movement key binded to the traditional WASD setup except for right.
