Surround sound is a bit of a bad description. If you have rear speakers the 3D audio will get panned there. But the other 50% of the audio won't. It wasn't built (unfortunately due to limitations) for surround sound. But would love to see what people make of it.

I have users reporting that when using the common Realtek HD Audio chipset, none of surround speakers are working unless the fix is applied.

RE: Bugs, fixes..

Source of the fix is Luis from Frictional Games:

http://www.frictionalgames.com/forum/thr...35877.html

but feel free to edit description, I could have misinterpret his message. In any case that fix doesn't works for everyone and there is definitely some problem with sound system:

Seems like the appropriate thread to post this. I stopped playing Amnesia for a few hours and when I loaded up the game and pressed continue it brought up a 2.5 hr old save. Also my saves seem to be scattered all over the place, the most recent save should be at the top. But for some reason it is located in the middle, in-between 30 or so saves.

Sorry I'm not sure what's causing that particular issue, I haven't seen it reported elsewhere.

Do you happen to play it on Steam, where it uses Steam cloud? It sometimes has problems, sadly. If not, sorrySmile

Hi,

I've found a hole in the map! After getting out of the basement of the Church, behind the 2nd vehicle. On the corner of a small brick wall you can fall out of the map and die. See attachment Smile

I found a crack in the map near that area, along a wall (took a screenshot and will upload later). Earlier in that level I walked straight through the cart with the pig carcasses. I approached it while crouching, with the aim of walking underneath it, to see if it would be a useful way to hide, but my initiative and exploration was not rewarded by TCR. Although at first I thought it was working nicely, and thought 'Well done TCR, thank you', but suddenly I found myself in the middle of the cart with my head sticking out of the top, and thought 'Oh dear, here we go'. I kept shuffling forward, and sure enough I found myself clipping straight through the entire cart without slowing down once. It didn't make a very good impression.

Later, having successfully made it all the way through the piston room without having died once in the game, in the very next section I fell straight through the floor and out of the map shortly after finding a glass flask. I fell to some ridiculous depth with the skybox way above, then the game thankfully let me 'die' and restarted the level. So yeah, MFP certainly does feel rough around the edges in places.
