Multiple bugs & glitches for me in Hotline Miami.
I have 2 really irritating problems which I have no clue how to fix!
1. Whenever I start up the game on the Updated version it starts to load, then an error pops up saying HotlineGL.exe Has Stopped Working, I don't know if it's if my computer is garbage or it's just a bug with the game itself.

2. When I play the game on Original (Which works ok for a few levels) some of the furniture and flooring is missing, like chairs, TV's, staircases, etc. I just ignored it and carried on with the game. When I got to the level called Tension there's another bug, when I'm told that the stage is clear and I go to proceed to the next part the stairs are missing (Again) I'm told to go up them, when I go I instead go past the stairs and get trapped in a corner! When I try to quit the game and restart it just freezes for like 5-10 minutes leaving me listening to the glitched up track. :|

If you know how I can sort out this crap, please just post it here, I really wanna play this game without any problems atall.
Ta!

If you have a latptop with NVIDIA Optimus or anything that switches between integrated and dedicated graphics, make sure the game runs on the dedicated graphics.

If you haven't or that didn't help, update your graphics driver and try again, it usually solves all the problems with Updated version.

If the problem persists after that, upload the file "C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\HotlineMiami\debug.log" on http://pastebin.com/, I'll take a look.

I don't use a laptop, I'm not really that sure about NVIDIA or whatever graphics card or any of that info.

If you don't have a laptop you probably don't have technology switching between integrated and dedicated, unless you were looking specifically into that sort of stuff to optimize desktop, so I guess the problem would come from outdated graphics driver.

To check what is your graphics card, go to Startmenu -> Right-click on computer -> Manage -> Device manager in the list on the left -> Graphics card.

The name there is your graphics card. Write it down in your answer. Then you right-click on it -> Properties -> Pilot, and you write down the date and version.

Then we will be able to find the latest driver for your hardware and try to fix your problem :)

Where can I find the graphics card? I can't tell which one it is (Nothing came up about what graphics card I'm using :\)

I was mistaken, in the "Device manager" it's "Display adapters"[pad2.whstatic.com] and not "Graphics card".

Ok, thanks. Here it is:Intel(R) Q965/Q963 Express Chipset Family
I clicked properties and didn't find any "Pilot" option.
Skymirrh Nov 12, 2013 @ 10:00am 
Driver, not Pilot (another mistake). But that won't be necessary anymore now we know you have Intel Graphics: go to the Intel Driver Update Utility[www.intel.com], install newest driver for your Intel Graphics, restart computer and try again to play Updated version.

Alright, I updated everything I could (Driver, by the looks) and restarted my computer. When I started it back up and launched Hotline Miami in the updated version the same error popup came, I'll see if the original version works.
Skymirrh Nov 12, 2013 @ 11:13am 
If Updated still does not work that means your hardware simply can't handle the OpenGL engine used in Updated's version. I hope Original will work for you else you'll have to try to run the game on another computer... :/

EDIT: If you still have problems with Original, try to go into the Advanced options (on the main menu), and turn surfaces "off" and clear blood "on".

The original doesn't work, sadly. :\ I'll try doing what you suggested. (Sorry for the late responce, I wasn't able to get online yesterday cause of my mum and sister doing work and homework.)
