Dzieki !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YES! YES! YES! Languages!!!

Damn, I was hoping for a working FoV slider.
baselinestun Sep 30, 2013 @ 9:57am 
Yeah unless it skipped the notes a FoV fix would be nice.
Cristian Sep 30, 2013 @ 9:58am 
Please, fix the bug with the end game achievement. There is a lot of people that only gets the casual achievement for finishing the game, even if they are on insane or normal.
Dumari Sep 30, 2013 @ 10:01am 
This does not fix the issues with Chapter 7. I still get a complete lockup when I activate the second pump (screen shows loading icon, game goes unresponsive and wont let me access the task manager forcing me to do a hardware reset).

This is a pretty serious issue, and I'm not keen on having to force reset my entire rig.
WarPig Sep 30, 2013 @ 10:06am 
Game still crashes when saving game. Still broken. Had this been a store purchase I would have returned the game!

Yeah what happened to this. Surely this must be the easiest fix of all?

Will you work on the stuttering problem when we haven't 60 FPS : http://steamcommunity.com/app/233130/discussions/0/846965705318127007/?tscn=1380473554 ?
Hashmallum  [developer] Sep 30, 2013 @ 10:20am 
Dumps and logs please to the provided email (you will find the /dmp file and crash.txt files in game installation folder - also if possible the crashing save - you will find these in \my documents\shadow warrior\your profile name).

Make sure that you check the file consistency before launching - the patch should eliminate most of the crashes - but make sure you HAVE THE CURRENT VERSION.

To check your game version: enable console (by pressing ctrl+~), input _version and press Enter.


Please note that if you will start the game on Insane and change the difficulty to any lower level - the game will use the lowest difficulty level ever chosen to count achievements.\
If you want achievements on insane - play the whole walkthrough on insane.

The game had a FoV slider since the beggining. And it works just fine.

Does this fix the part where you could get out of [sp]Zilla's snow tower thing[/sp]?

He's probably referring to that the FoV slider always resets after launching the game again.

If it would work I wouldn´t ask for a fix, I didn´t say to the others, achievements are working just because they did for me.

That´s not complete true, it doesn´t save the settings, so there is no difference if I use default or custom setting.
