Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
GENERAL

Q. The mouse seems to 'lag' a bit.
A. The game has an intentionally smoothed mouse feeling, however if you don't like it you can disable "Look Smoothing" from the options screen.

Q. My character moves on their own when I have a pad plugged in.
A. You need to calibrate the axis of your pad. Pause the game with "Esc" select "Options" select "Controls" then "Calibrate joysticks". Follow the on screen instructions.

Q. I have changed the settings and now the game is unplayable. (Such as remapping left click or such)
A. During the white logo screen (straight after language select) press the R button. This will wipe all game settings but your progress in the game will be unaffected.

Q. The game does not launch and just goes to a black screen.
A. During the white logo screen (straight after language select) press the N button. This will wipe all game settings INCLUDING your game progress.

Q. No, I mean the game REALLY does not launch, I don't even get the white logo screen.
A. If you're running on a modern laptop with two graphics card this might be that the game is running on your integrated card instead of the more powerful 3D one. If you're using an NVIDIA card bring up the NVIDIA Control Panel and choose "Manage 3D Settings" then "Program Settings". Here you should be able to add Kairo as a program set to run by your 3D card by default.

Q. Certain achievements don't seem to trigger.
A. This was an older bug that should now be fixed however the fix was not retroactive and so we can't give you that achievement without you replaying the game, sorry.

Q. The game was just updated, what's changed?
A. If you look in your Steam folder for the game (Steam/steamapps/common/Kairo) you'll find a file called KairoReleaseNotes.txt. This is always updated to include notes on any new changes.

OCULUS RIFT RELATED

Q. After using Oculus Rift my character no longer looks around.
A. The sliders in the options screen do not currently work on Rift, so will probably find that Look Sensitivity in the options screen is set to 0. Turn off Rift mode and increase that slider.

Q. Game goes to a black screen when using Oculus Rift mode.
A. Sadly we can't guarantee Rift will work with everyone's machine as it's largely an experimental feature. To fix this: During the white logo screen (straight after language select) press the R button. This will wipe all game settings but your progress in the game will be unaffected.

Q. Oculus Rift does not work on Linux.
A. We added Rift support before they provided a working version for Linux Unity (the game engine we use) and do not currently have the time to add that in. We hope to revisit this within a few months.

VIDEOS

Q. Can I use Kairo for YouTube or Twitch.tv videos?
A. You are more than welcome to use screenshots and videos from Kairo for whatever purpose you see fit. Including, but not limited to, YouTube videos or TwitchTV streaming whether monetised or not.

SECRETS

Q. I'm having trouble unlocking one of the game's secrets.
A. Unfortunately we don't provide information or support with unlocking the secret elements of the game, that's for you to discover yourself.
