A demo? BEFORE release? Feels weird thanking devs for what used to be the norm but thanks! Getting this game day 1.

1440p just doesn't work for me.

Ms01SystemSettings, config.ini and SystemSettings on the game folder are all 2560-1440 and read-only but when the game starts, I have huge black bars (no scaling).

So, on the negative side the launcher doesn't have a 2560x1440 option (or anything higher than 1080p). When will developers start learning to enumerate available resolutions?

On the positive side, it's a UE game, so that doesn't matter really.
In [my games]\D4 Dark Dreams Don't Die DEMO\Ms01Game\Config there's a Ms01SystemSettings.ini file with all the common UE3 options -- including ResX and ResY -- and from a quick test they seem to work.
Are you setting them in the correct file? E.g. for me it's "C:\Users\Peter\Documents\My Games\D4 Dark Dreams Don't Die DEMO\Ms01Game\Config\Ms01SystemSettings.ini".

Is it possible to downsample using the config tweak or can you only go up to your monitors native resolution?

Ugh 1440p isn't working for me either. Set the res via the "Ms01SystemSettings" file but using the launcher just has the game play out in 1080p and the executable in the Binaries>Win64 folder does the same, only in a window instead, which can't be maximized to fit my screen (1440p). :(

The demo never dropped a frame with my 970. Synchro stunts are quite easy to pull of with the mouse too. Thanks Obama.

Gave this a try. It wasn't really fun, but I will buy it to support its weirdness.

Runs PERFECTLY for me. So damn happy. Gonna day one that deluxe edition. I really cannot wait.

You won't be disappointed!

Demo sold me on the game. The fight scene in the airplane was ridiculous.

It's actually cut down for time and doesn't include the more ridiculous parts. You're in for a treat.

What in the absolute fuck are these controls?!? Used a controller, and they're horrendous. Any better with a mouse/keyboard?

We recommend you play with a mouse only. The controller controls are the same as the Xbox One version, if that's your thing.

Oh my God. So I didn't know anything about this game, only saw Mega64's video about it. I thought it was gonna be some David Cage type nonsense. Tried the demo anyway (free stuff!), and I still think it's sort of David Cage nonsense, but in a good way. Gotta buy!

When you bypass the launcher, you also need to set Fullscreen to True in the same Ms01SystemSettings.ini that you edited before.

Had a weird error when doing the custom resolution to 4k where the VA and music at the beginning didn't play. I fixed it up and the game looks nicer and I can hear the VA + Music. :)

I haven't followed this game close enough but I did download it for free on Xbone awhile back. Wasn't that just the first episode? Is the entire game out? Will the PC release be the whole game?

The convergence gets a little fast and loose with this game, but when things line up right wow 3D looks so much better than the game in 2D.

Didn't run at first, then I had to download the Visual Basic thing or whatever.

Didn't exactly help that they had linked the JAPANESE downloads in the ENGLISH help file...

Runs with much stutter at 1080 on my 17" MacBook Pro 2011. The gfx card is about at the minimum requrement.

After I set it to minimum and 720p it ran much better. It was actually fun then ;)

But that tedious install and search for extensions online really made me thankful for console gaming... ugh...

You should be more thankful for PC developers that follow proper protocol and global support. :p

Damn, that "Action" part of the demo was pretty cool. Is there more of it in the main game?

Still have to try the adventure part

Does the game have side by side 3D support built in or do I have to install one of those apps to do it for me? I remember Crysis 2 had a SBS 3D option in there.

Nice, since it's apparently running on Unreal I'll be curious to see what this game will look like without the black outlines since I assume it's probably a similar thing to Borderlands .ini editing.

love everything of the game but the kinect type movement...

oh that sucks - they didnt improve on that? even mouse and keyboard controls?

shakes head - kinnect gets no games, then ends up ruining this one. I was really hoping the PC version woud fix this, get good sales and lead to more episodes

Nah, those were taken using 3D vision. It's just that stereo images save them as side by side, and it's the most convenient way to share images online because people can just cross their eyes to see it in 3D.

If you've got a 3D capable display you can check your driver settings to see if you can enable 3D and get it working.

You're overexaggerating it.

It's really not much different from a point-and-click game with some mouse-based QTE.

I have this dumb Sony Playstation display thing. I could never get it working right with my Nvidia setup.

Doesn't work on my machine, although I have installed everything listed in the ReadMe (my .NET Framework is a newer version though). It just crashes at the splash screen. "D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die doesn't work anymore" (rough translation)

Here is the log given by the Windows thingy:

Fatal error!

Address = 0x406533ae (filename not found)
Address = 0xb2d90b30 (filename not found)
Address = 0x5dccf0 (filename not found)
Address = 0x6fd390 (filename not found)
Address = 0x6fd390 (filename not found)
Address = 0x5dcc4c (filename not found)
Address = 0x1 (filename not found)
Address = 0x7 (filename not found)
Address = 0xff9b00d0 (filename not found)
Address = 0x5dcc54 (filename not found)
Address = 0xff9b00d8 (filename not found)

Yeah, sure.

Does Access Games have a support page?

EDIT:
Forgot to post the specs ...
AMD Phenom II X4 960T @ 3 GHz
ATI HD 4870, with 1 GB VRAM
8 GB of RAM
Win7 Professional 64 Bit

I dunno I didn't really have much problems with it and it was kinda fun especially in the action scene sequence.

It really is just a Telltale/David Cage point and click style game. I don't see how it's any worse.

Ummmm....those are reversed. It's making my head hurt even in 2D.

Edit* Ah, I guess I'm supposed to cross my eyes, lol....not doing that :p

Definitely not reversed. The only thing I did to modify the screengrabs that Nvidia drivers grabbed was to resize it. It works crossing your eyes, as well as opening them in 3D image viewer.
