Stuck outside in darkness, how to get my light working?
Well obviously i must have some kind of light because when I bring up my journal the screen lights up. When i put it down it all goes dark and is impossible to see ANYTHING. There doesnt seem to be any magically combusting twigs near me so how do I either activate my light, or sleep, or get past this bit?

Never mind i just turned my desktop colour brightness up real atrociously and was able to just about see again. Still would like to know how to activate that journal torch though...

Whenever it is dark, you will automatically bring out your lighter, which casts a small amount of light and lasts forever. The only time it will be really dark is if you're holding something else in your right hand, so can't hold the lighter.

Just throw or drop whatever it is.

Note that torches are bugged and it is impossible to use the journal or map while holding a torch.

No I'm getting this glitch in the most recent playthrough I'm currently doing. The lighter just doesn't turn on at night, don't know why. Have tried a bunch of stuff and it doesn't work. Notably it's not "my" playthrough, but a friend who's playing for the first time so maybe he's doing something wrong I don't know.

You start the game with the lighter and never lose it. It always activates automatically at night, unless you are holding something in your right hand.

Hate to say it, but have you tried starting again?

I tried closing the game down and restarting, and that fixed it. Sorry, should have posted the really easy solution.

It only appears to happen when you've deleted a save file and started a completely new game. The first time you shut Miasmata down, the lighter will be back the next time you crank that save file up.

I'm just sorry that that actually was the solution. :( I hope you're didn't lose too much progress.
