Hi! I Just tried this fix on the demo and it doesn't work, it still judder at anything that isn't 50Hz. The patch is only for the full game?

Hi sixelalexis,

Sorry this patch only works on the full game. I took a look at the demo and the file is slightly different so I created a fix for that as well. The demo fix upload is waiting for moderators to ok it, but I will try attaching the fix to this message too.

Thanks! Just tried and, while it works at first, after you lose all lives and you restart a level the whole thing breaks. Can happen even after you die. At that point even selecting another level doesn't fix it, you have to close the demo and open it again. Is it something that happen with the fix on the full game as well?

I just retried the full game and lost all lives did a retry, lost all lives again did an exit, and a restart of the level and the fix seemed to be working solidly.  So I think that's just something with the demo. it must be getting reset somewhere else, will see what I can find then.

Hey I just took another look at the demo, I think I found the reset. I tested a few times dying over and over as well as multiple levels and every thing looks stable now.

Still seeing some issues with this demo fix

I've tested the full version of the game for a while now this eve and I've not had any issues so far. I'm still looking at the demo, but I'm not sure how much time I'll spend on it since the full version seems to be working without issue. Hopefully others who have tested it can chime in with their experience. 

Sorry the demo fix is janky currently

I understand. The issue is especially noticing on the retro graphic, without all the parallax is much easier to see how much it judder. Well, if I end up getting the full game I will surely give it a try to the fix, thank you 🙂
 

p.s. so you can use this fix on any Unity game? I noticed that lately (thanks to Steam Next Fest) this isn't a thing anymore for most indie/AA games, but until some years ago it was a plague.

So far I've had luck with 60hz fix's for a few unity games that I've had this issue with personally (Alex Kidd, Actraiser, Deadly Premonition 2, Exo One, and Tormented Souls). And I've tried and failed to fix/patch Disco Elysium, Empyrion Galactic Survival, and Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster, but I'm sure I'll keep trying as I have time.

And yeah I don't think this is as much a problem anymore with newer Unity titles. I think Unity corrected the default Fixed Timestep setting maybe within the past year? Though it seems some devs are still managing to mess it up. I really wish the devs of these older games would just fix their code...
