KNOWN ISSUES & SOLUTIONS - Win/Mac/Linux
Here are the known issues with the game, along with any known solutions. If you’d like something added to this list, then please post below!

Unsupported Graphics Cards - Fixing Next Patch
At the time of writing, people are reporting that the game will not render on the Intel HD 4000. The issue is logged with YoYo Games, who will hopefully get a chance to look at it.

Windows 8.1 Compatibility Problems - Fixing Next Patch
We have various reports of the game crashing on Windows 8.1 - this was due to a Game Maker problem that has since be fixed, but we need to update the game to incorporate those
changes.

Xbox 360 Wireless Controller DPAD Problem - Fixing Next Patch
The wireless version of the 360 controller only allows you to move up and down on the DPAD not left and right. This should be fixed in the next patch but in the meantime wired 360 controllers should work fine.

The Mouse Doesn’t Select Anything & the Keys Don’t Work [Linux]
You may find that pressing the up cursor goes down and the left cursor goes up and the mouse cursor won’t select anything.

This seems to be a compatibility problem with controller drivers.
Solutions include:
  • Go to the options and disable the controller. Since this might be difficult with a non-working keyboard, use these instructions:
    (press up twice) Options (press enter) > (press right, right) Controller > (press up a few times) Disable Controller (press Enter twice)
  • If you have a controller attached, try moving the stick, since that has been reported as clearing the issue.
  • Close the game and open it again
The Game Starts With a Blank Screen
Some people report that the game just renders a black or white rectangle, and the game is never shown. This seems to only be an issue in fullscreen.

Possible solutions:
  • Press Alt+Enter to go from fullscreen to windowed mode
  • Unplug your controller (unplugging other devices may work too)
[NO SOLUTION] The Shadows are Rendering Strangely/Not Rendering
If the shadows look strange, or the lighting is very bright, then your graphics card does not support Game Maker’s surfaces, which are used to create the light and shadows. Your system is unfortunately below the minimum requirements.

Shadows may also not be rendering correctly for sufferers of this problem, resulting in issues like this[i.imgur.com] which prevent certain levels from being completed.

[NO SOLUTION] The Game Runs Slowly After Chapter 3
Some people have reported that the game runs fine for them in Chapters 1 & 2, but once Chapter 3 is reached, they suffer from slowdown.

Some Features of the Editor Don’t Work Correctly [Mac/Linux]
The following issues have been reported across these two formats:
  • The mouse wheel doesn’t work
  • Panning (Space+LMB or Middle Mouse Button) doesn’t work
  • No levels shown in the Open Level dialogue box [Linux]
These issues will need to be fixed by YoYo Games.

Controller Doesn’t Work [Linux]
A few people are reporting that the Linux version has issues with controllers. For some, Xbox 360 controllers work, yet it does work for others. Controllers such as the Logitech F310 work with the switch set to X, but only for some.

See this thread for details of workarounds: http://steamcommunity.com/app/209190/discussions/0/810923021661107869/

Game Doesn’t Work on Non-Ubuntu Distros
GameMaker Studio only supports Ubuntu, so Linux distros such as Gentoo, Fedora, Mint, Redhat, etc. are not officially supported. Many have got the game to work on these versions using information in this thread http://steamcommunity.com/app/209190/discussions/0/810923021661107869/


Cheers,

The scroll wheel problem basically renders the Level Editor useless on my Mac. Is there really no workaround?
onebitbeyond Jul 2, 2013 @ 2:23am 
It shouldn't make it unusable, the scroll wheel is only really a shortcut. You can still set every variable from the right click menu.

I can't get this fixed until YoYo come free (they're focusing on a big release at the moment).

Anyone did have Fatal Error like this one

Action number 1 of create event for object obj_game_initialiser Push :: execution Error - Variable get -7.pref_array(101118, 0) at gml_script_load_preferences

Stack frame is

gml_script_load_preferences (line 0)
gml_object_obj_games_initialiser_Create_0

This is what written in the Fatal Error report

I'm guessing it's the same error as before. Could you please refer to this thread?

I'm playing the Mac version, and it crashes every time I quit. The game seems to save fine, so it's more of an annoyance than anything else.
My game was crashing randomly when wieving community level/exploring menu/playing. I couldnt even change it to window mode,cause it crash with Windows Error Popup. What about that?
Pommes Jul 20, 2013 @ 3:41am 
You need to complete every level 5 times :(
@Pommes-message for me or other?

Yeah certain programs seem to activate that error I think it's when they wait to do something before closing, I get it from Steam itself a lot.

Any news about YoYo games?

In the Linux version, I had a broken level (you could see what the solution was, but the character fell through a block he should have stood on). I tried again a few months later and it still wasn't fixed...
I would not class this game as "Linux supported", as it is unplayable.

This issue is probably belongs in the sticky.

Crash after Curve Studios Logo:

For some users of Windows XP SP3 and Radeon videocards Stealth♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ will crash just after the very first intro video with an error of: Fault address 0x0007f276. A temporary work around is as follows.

As the Curve Studios video begins to play, hold down the alt key and repeatedly press tab 3-4 times per second until you get past the Curve Studios video. Do not stop or release the alt key during this process until a few seconds after the Curve Studios logo has ended. You should now be able to get to the menu.

Note 1: You will need a program, folder, application, browser, or some other alt-tabbable window open that you can tab-cycle between.

Note 2: The game must be running in full screen. Do NOT change it to windowed mode after getting past the logo or you will not be able to use this method for future launches. If for some reason your game launches in a window you will need to turn off steam cloud saves as as well as delete your configuration (and possibly save?) file here: C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Stealth♥♥♥♥♥♥♥[Steam]\Stealth♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.sav (Make a backup first so that if a fix is ever discovered you can restore old saved progress/settings.)

I suspect that this may be an issue with codecs installed on the system, but have no way of verifying this without knowing what format the videos use. For reference I use the CCCP Pack 2013-04-20 but have some customized settings. More info on this crash and hardware configurations can be found here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/209190/discussions/0/846957366661995095/

Almost six months, and the Intel HD 4000 problem was not resolved... How many years will it take?
mercutio1992 Mar 3, 2014 @ 5:40pm 
I'm getting absolutely nothing, there is no window coming up for the game on my Mac! it maybe because I got the 2.49 bundle, but I want to confirm just to make sure!
