Hello Studio Elan team,

Operating System: Window's 10 (64-bit)

Version of the game: 1.1

In chapter 4, when Abigail is about to tell Maddie about her relationship with her sister the game crashes and stops responding when trying to move to the next line in the conversation from the sentence "At first, I expect her to stay quiet, like before. But instead, she keeps talking." (a rather unfortunately ironic moment to freeze!).

This occurs both with the Abigails Story file in the game file and with it deleted.

Choices: I have to keep her strong
                    She'll pay for this

All the best :)

I'm having a very similar issue, but at the very beginning of the story. As soon as the visuals cut to Eysenfeld, the game performance drops to a crawl with maybe one or two frames per second; and then, when I try to advance the text, it continues runnning at a crawl for maybe another second or two and then freezes entirely and doesn't continue. I've tried the scene in version 1.0, and then in 1.1 with the anti-patch in the game directory, and then 1.1 with the anti-patch deleted, and the failure happened in exactly the same way in exactly the same place regardless of those details.

(And I'm also on Windows 10 64-bit.)

Update: I did a bunch of fiddling around trying to fix it, and after several unsuccessful bits of trial-and-error, I found something definitive: the issue happens when I'm using my CPU's integrated graphics processor (which, incidentally, I hadn't realized was my laptop's default, and wow that explains some things in retrospect), but when I switch over to an actual GPU suddenly it runs fine. Moreover, at that point it runs fine even with the anti-patch. Hopefully this is helpful.
