Please read first in case of technical issues!

If you encounter technical problems with one of the games published or developed by Daedalic, please read this thread completely first and follow the advice given. The most common mistakes are often solvable very easily.

1. System Requirements
Please make absolutely sure that your system meets the specified requirements (especially the graphics card memory and supported OpenGL version). If the requirements are not met, we unfortunately cannot provide any support.

2. Patches
Search the official game site for patches, that might have resolved known issues already, and install them.

3. Drivers and operating system update
It is always recommended that you keep your video and sound card drivers, as well as your input device drivers, and your operating system (Windows / Mac OS X) up to date. Most of the optical and acoustic error are caused by outdated drivers! To download the latest drivers, please visit the site of your hardware manufacturer. It is often a good idea to completely remove the old drivers from the system before a newer version is installed in order to avoid conflicts.

3a. For notebooks: Make sure that the optimal graphics card is used
Notebooks often have a separate graphics card in addition to the internal graphics chipset. For games the "performance graphics card" should be activated. This setting can be activated in the BIOS setup at boot time (caution is advised!) or in Windows in the System Control Panel in the NVIDIA or AMD Catalyst control panels, depending on your graphics card.

4. Check and disable third-party software
In most cases third-party software (such as virus scanners) will cause no problems with our games. If the game does not run correctly, it is still advisable to terminate all background programs for trial purposes, though.

5. Reinstall the game
In rare cases it may have happened that not all files have been copied correctly during installation. To exclude that this is indeed the case, please uninstall the game completely from the system and re-install it afterwards. If the game is not running again, it may also be helpful to install the game on a different hard drive or partition.

6. Search for a solution
If nothing of the previous helps resolve the issue, please search this forum for a possible solution. A similar or the same problem might already have occured and a solution might be available.
