Major / Performance issues
  • The presence of anti-tamperware.
  • Long startup time (caused by the above).
  • Crashes such as sec60A6.tmp and secEE6E.tmp (caused by the above).
  • Continued creation of files to locations on the C:/ drive (caused by the above).
  • Crashes after 10-20 minutes (caused by touchscreen drivers...?).
  • Crashes when alt-tabbing.

Translation / Porting issues
  • Numerous issues with unformatted or missing text lines.
  • Numerous issues with French, Italian and Spanish languages.
  • Occasional English audio with Japanese audio selected.
  • Persistent mistranslations from the PS3 release e.g. Holy Binds.
  • New typos introduced to the PC release e.g. Battle Contorols.
  • Steam Badge: Zelos is called Mithos.
  • Absurdly few save slots. Patched 2/12/16
  • Persistent PS3 button prompts.

Majorly Needed Quality Improvements
  • Restore the frame rate back to the original 60 FPS.
  • Internal resolution rework.
  • Anti-aliasing / anisotropic filtering / blur.
  • Classic (Gamecube) cel-shading.
  • Fullscreen options (inc. borderless window).
  • Configurable options for all of the above.
  • Key binding options.

And many more issues.

Good step forward. But frankly, adding to what has been said several times now (for good reason), this really should be 1080p and 60fps. My two bits, thank you for the continued updates

... I wonder how much devs are paid to patch a game after its release.

Awwwww, but think of the hijinks that we could have had.

60 fps, no DRM, stop igoring our feedback. Thanks, and good day.
Soosh Feb 2, 2016 @ 5:47pm 
Its a start!
Shinrin Cole Feb 2, 2016 @ 5:48pm 
Can confirm the game no loger writes to C:\TL though it does put the .tmp file in a different location which is deleted after the game is closed.
Hey devs, maybe you should listen to the fans about removing the DRM, sound good!? :D No? Okay then, not buying.

Baby steps guys. At least my biggest grip is now fixed (save/config delay).

Baby steps are all well and good, but they'd better get to removing the bigger issues.

I said it in the previous thread, as long as it has DRM outside of steamworks, i don't care what you do to the game, i won't play it, or any game made by bamco, due to it.

Seems like all you did was hide the DRM better, fair enough, you don't want perspective customers to know it has DRM and refund it after all.

Denovu DRM can burn for all I care, people who use it in their games deserve no respect.

This isn't a sufficient baby step for me. Do you know what kind of baby steps I want instead?

Zombies ate my neighbors baby steps. Yes I mean level 8. At least launching the game isn't an absolute chore now but alt tabbing if you use fullscreen is... it's terrible. The delay.
FIRE FIRE FIRE Feb 2, 2016 @ 5:54pm 
Confirming not getting the delay anymore. Excellent.

That leaves the arbitrary resolution support then. Edit: Look at how Durante did it for clues

Also dump VMprotect, the game has been pirated to oblivion since the GC days, and this version was already cracked, it's just insulting at this point (and it's known to cause performance issues on lower level PCs.)
