- Q: (NEW) When using the overlay program with the PC version, it’s not detecting my controller’s inputs. What can I do?
- This is a common issue with Rewired. As a work around, you can use the “Multi-Button” function in Steam’s controller figuration to map the right arrow key to the A button and the F key to L3. If you use this workaround, make sure to unbind the right arrow key in Hajimari’s keyboard configuration (キーボード設定).
- Q: After updating, the app is hanging/crashing when importing the translation!
- This shouldn’t be needed for most people, but if this happens you may have to clear you ColdSteelSubs registry entry:
- If you are in the middle of a main story chapter, write down the line number you are on as this process will cause your ColdSteelSubs program to forget it
- In the Windows search bar type “regedit” and hit Enter
- On the list of folder in the left bar, click on “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” then “Software” then “ZeroField” then right click on “ColdSteelSubs”
- Right Click on the folder named “ColdSteelSubs” and click “Delete”, then Yes to confirm
- Re-lauch the application – it should load with default settings.
- Q: Why isn’t the app downloading successfully?
- Your firewall may be blocking the download. Please ensure that Windows firewall is set to allow downloads from the source.
- Q: When I open the program, it is stuck at “Loading Translation.” How come?
- A: This is most often caused by language locale. If your computer is set to a language other than English, try switching the language and the region to English.
- Q: How come the Overlay isn’t transparent?
- A: When launching the application, please let it fully load. It can glitch and lose its transparency if you alt tab or multitask while it loads.
- (NEW) Also, NVIDIA Control Panel can stop the transparency from working correctly. If you weren’t multitasking when loading the app and still got a transparency issue, try clearing your global NVIDIA Settings.
- Q: Why are my commands not working?
- A: Please make sure the Overlay is the primary application.
- Q: How come we didn’t spoiler tag certain characters in combat data sheets?
- A: We had a strict time table across multiple teams to release this in the time frame that we did, and to release it all together. We decided as a team to move forward in this direction to get it into your hands sooner.
- Also note that C’s identity is never stated in the combat overlay.
- Q: Are there minimum system requirements?
- A: The application has been tested with as little as 4GB minimum RAM. It is functional, but for optimal performance we recommend 8GB or greater.
- Q: Can I run this on my Mac computer?
- A: Tested on a 2019 MacBook Pro running Wine and it worked fine. Your mileage may vary, we had a single mac to test on.
- Q: Help! I tried to run the application but it doesn’t load.
- A: If the application doesn’t load and when you try to open it again, it says it is running already, then please cancel the process in Task Manager(Ctrl+Alt+Del) and try again.
