Role-Playing Game


I can't install the game.

The game doesn't run at all on my computer.

My game runs slow (or jerkily).

My game is exhibiting erratic (unusual) behavior.

I am having trouble (irregularities) with the game graphics.

Your computer may have an outdated graphics driver. We have seen some specific problems caused by an older graphics driver for Intel 865G integrated graphics. If you are experiencing graphics glitches on Windows, do the following:

  1. Find the "Betwixt" folder and open the Data/output_log.txt file. At the top, it will say what graphics is in the computer. Look for this line: Renderer: Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller.
  2. If you DO see this message, then look for the driver version: Version: Direct3D 9.0c 1. [ialmrnt5.dll]. (Please note: your number may be different). If your driver version number is lower than 14.17, you should update your driver. To update your driver, go to the following Intel site:

You may need to run game at different resolution. Hold down the Option (on Mac) or Alt (on Windows) key when launching the game and select the preferred resolution. The higher the resolution, the more the quality setting may need to be reduced to maintain good performance. We recommend not checking "Windowed" mode, as it may cause problems with the cursor when switching between Betwixt Folly and Fate and other programs. If that happens, right-click or press the comma key to regain control of the player-character. However, this method may stop working if used repeatedly to switch back and forth. Windowed mode is not a supported feature. It is strongly recommended that the game be played in full-screen mode
