Game Update - November 5
The following updates have been made to the game. If you encounter any additional issues please email a description of the issue along with your system specs and OS to

Gamepad support has been enabled. Make sure you have installed the newest drivers for your xbox controller before using this feature. You'll find them on, just follow the link below

To disable the gamepad correctly (if you want to go back to mouse and keyboard) you might need to first switch the controller to OFF in the option menu AND restart your computer, otherwise the game might run with a small but constant slowdown until you do so.

Remapping the keys now works with arrowkeys as well.

Most reported bugs have been fixed. A slowdown problem and a bug with people getting stuck in stairs/elevators are still things we are looking into. If you encounter these, try running the game in 1280x768 which is the game's optimal resolution.
Note: We have noticed that that the bugs mentioned above have a tendency to accur when playing the game with windows running on a Mac and that should be taken care of with the Mac version of Hotline Miami that will be out soon.

A bonus stage ”Highball” has been added, which will be unlocked when you complete the mainstory.

Additional environmental graphics.

More gore with the Jones mask now has additional graphical effects.

Additional sound effects.

The pot of boiling water has been updated.

More randomly placed weapons.

First and second boss battles slightly modified.

DpunktW  [developer] Nov 5, 2012 @ 9:49am

The patch broke my game :(

I get this:

action number 1
of Create Event
for object objDevolver:

Error defining an external function.


and then it starts without the music, or just crashed to the desktop.

A little bug on the new map : you can go outside even after you enter the building.
And why the map don't have high score ?

nope, still broken.
my game worked fine without an error, slow down or glitch for 25 hours of play through multiple start ups every day since release. Suddenly, two days ago it shows errors after spalsh and the main menu is gone. It takes me straight to tutorial level and I also get tons of errors every time I die. Annoyingly enough other than the missing menu the game is working fine otherwise so I dont even know what the errors are for.
Anyway if it worked fine for so long and suddenly doesnt now and theres been no changes to my computer, surely there must be a way to completely delete the game and start over fresh? Ive tried reinstalling and even taking out all the other files except achievements which cant be moved.
Does it save files anywhere outside the hotline_miami folder?
Or maybe its a conflict with steam? Would the GoG version work?
I just really want this game back, I cant even access this new level without a main menu. Im almost ready to reformat my entire computer just so I can play again.. Though if its a conflict with steam even that wont even work..
