[Bug] Launch straight into new game

Postby ellbristow » Thu Sep 27, 2012 11:23 am

I just launched the game and got no menu, no options, it went straight to an empty prison with inmates and supplies arriving.

This is the second time I've launched the game. The first time I completed the tutorial mission and then then exited the game. Not sure if that's linked?

Try deleting your last autosave. I had a problem where the last autosave crashed, and every time I launched the game it'd run for ~3 seconds and crash again. Had to nuke the saves to make it work again.

I'm not sure where it is on a Windows PC (I'm on a mac), but you can edit preferences.txt and set first game to true. It will reset PA. If you don't want to do the tutorial anymore, just press escape, and there you go !

This is normal, after you have played the tutorial.
The game will load the last save it found on start, else it will make a new game.

Those aren't inmates arriving, those are workers and supplies.

If you close the game at any place in the tutorial (even when it just barly start it) you will go straigth to the tutorial the next time :/

You can press the introduction button in the main menu to go back to the tutorial level at any time, do save before you do this
