Solved: 2 Months, 3 Weeks, 1 Day, 13 Hours, 59 Minutes, 2 Seconds ago Little screen on top left corner?

Hey guys, i just bought Penumbra collection few hours ago and im enjoying this game very much. But sometimes when im playing, theres this little screen on the top left that shows the exact same thing that is being displayed on the screen. This is not a big problem but im wondering what is it there for as it only pops up for a few seconds while im playing. What is there for? Is it a bug?

That is a bug, it's not supposed to be there. It might be that you have to upgrade the drivers of your video card or something like that to fix it.

EDIT : I already have the latest video drivers.

Anyone know what causes this or how to fix it?

I had that happen to me, but it just went away on its own after a bit...

Also, I think its intentional in some places...

The exact same thing happened to you? On the same level? The part after you blow the debris up with TNT in overture.

Yea, as soon as you enter the deeper part of the mine, it happened. I'm not sure how far you are in the game... so not sure if this is a spoiler

Spoiler below!

I think it was intentional because when it happened to me, it looked like it was a security camera mounted somewhere looking at me, like Red was spying on me.


As soon as I got near the generator room, it disappeared. Walk around for a bit, I don't think it should stay there forever...

Haha. A little confirmation on weather if this is intentional or not would be nice. Thanks for the response though

I've found a few of these bugs. It's like there are 2 cameras being rendered when there shouldn't be.
