@3ncore We replaced files like cp_life_360.lsp which is likely what caused the issue. As for the workaround, we'll simply include as many files as possible outside of arc files with different names, and force the game to load those instead (modders could still edit the modified files, but I don't know of any mods that mess with lsp files, and for good reason as there isn't much to be done with them without modifying the code too)

@Anthony That sounds interesting, can you elaborate?
Anthony  [author] May 16 @ 7:50am 
@Мр. Капитан Чувак You're most likely using mods that replace our files (most likely one of the "game resource arc files"), forcing the old incomplete story mode files to be loaded in all modes, this won't be an issue anymore with the next update
Lost in Nightmares icons fully broken,

@Supremacy, Sounds like a computer problem, there's probably stuff on the internet to help you out with that.

I played the game 1+ year ago it was perfect out of the box, but now that + controller not recognized and steam overlay doesn't work

@Tony Soprano, Thanks we all really appreciate it! Hope you enjoy the patch!

Thanks to everyone involved with this patch.

I would recommend the Steam app "BorderlessGaming", also available as a non-steam game for free on github if you are having issues alt+tabbing in this game.

@Supremacy I've heard about people crashing when alt+tabbing in this game, Rick included I believe. I personally haven't, and I definitely don't crash switching to windowed mode as I do it all the time both through the menu and mainly alt+enter, do you have any other mods installed maybe? You could also try disabling the game's V-Sync or Anti-aliasing perhaps

When I try to set to Windoed or try to ALT+ENTER I get FATAL ERRROR
