Viking: Battle for Asgard

No text in Main Menu (FIXED)
I bought this game 30 mins ago, and when I start it up and reach the Main Menu (not only the menu, but for whole game as well) – all I see is nothing. Well, not nothing, this is what I do see, though: Screenshots of Menu

EDIT: Issue has been patched.

And, it seems the game doesn't automatically detect my 360 controller, either. Apparently, those who you use (Wireless?) X360 controllers might have problems with incorrectly emulated buttons: X is actually A, Y is B, Right stick is Start.

EDIT: Issue seems to have been patched.

I can live without the latter, of course, but not the former. I'd say it's kind of important.

Same, no text, but my wired xbox360 controller works fine.

Weird. Game doesn't respond to mine, just to my keyboard. Well, whatever. Probably some setting in need of tweaking.

So everyone has no text? How they release that?

No idea how this managed to get through QA. Assuming they even bothered with it.

ALL text is invisible, not just the main menu. The game is literally impossible to play since you cant read anything, including shop menus.

I don't understand how this issue didn't crop up when they ported the game. And why they didn't notice it. Seems to me there was no QA to speak of.
This must be one of the worst ports ever. XD I mean, the in-game text is fundamental to be able to fully comprehend the game.

Strange. Perhaps it's a localization issue with Windows? I don't know, just grasping at straws here.

No text for me either.

No text for me either. Haven't tried my wireless X360 controller yet.

I have the same problem, I can live with the fps cap (playing with a wired 360 controller and it works) but playing the game with text missing is near impossible. Tried all sorts of setting combinations but no luck there.

Ok lets start off with the GPU's guys, I got an Nvidia card (no text).
Ezodagrom is sitting on AMD.

Are there anyone here with an AMD card that HAS the no text problem?

I checked the Nvidia drivers btw, it's up to date and I even tried the BETA drivers.
I checked all DirectX and whatnot. All up to date.

I'm reinstalling the game now (to my main drive) C:\\ Instead of D:\\

Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 here. And, as I said, no text.
SpaRRow Oct 17, 2012 @ 11:47am 
Nvidia gtx470 - no text

560Ti here and not working either! Some buttons seems to be mapped to the wrong actions as well (pausing with R3 instead of Start for example).
