1. Paradigm is not going full screen? What gives?

Solution: Your may have a super high res monitor, noice. You need to Disable display scaling on high DPI settings. First find where your game is installed (If it is steam, right click paradigm in steam>properties>local files>browse local files. Now right click Paradigm.exe>properties>Compatibility>Disable display scaling on high DPI settings

FAQ

2. Paradigm is not starting at all and is asking me I'm missing MSVCR110.DLL

Solution: Your computer doesn't have Visual C++ redistributable 2012 installed. Go to this LINK and download >BOTH< the x86 and x64 versions. You definitely need the x86 one, even if you are running a 64 bit computer. Game still does not work? Try reinstalling it after you installed the redistributable, restart your computer, and it should work.

3. Game is running super fast for some reason. Effects especially are super fast

Solution: Your computer is super fast and is running the game more than 60fps. To fix this, force V sync with your graphic card control panel. This will cap the game at 60fps and play the game as intended.

4. I can no longer use right click to bring up the verb interface as Paradigm

Solution: This is a super rare problem (Keep in mind some segments like Boosting thugs, you cannot right click) However if you get this during regular scenes, open and close your map, and that will enable you to use right click interface again.

JACOB NONE OF THIS HELPS ME THERE IS STILL A PROBLEM, YOU'RE THE WORST!

All good I got you. Email me at paradigmgamehelp@gmail.com. However remember, I'm just one guy. I wish I was multiple guys. It would be kind of weird though. But anyway, I'm just one guy so I do sleep and may not get back to you straight away. I will get back you as soon as I can!

4. I pressed the ad button 10 000 times now I cant progress! Super annoying

You pressed the advertisement 10 000 times and you can not enter the sloth head
How is it caused? - If you did it, you can enter the head immediately, but if you stepped on the red button, it will stop you from progressing. 
Solution: You will have to load an earlier save. Don't have one? I got you covered 

SAVE HERE
Put that save into your save folder, on windows it will look like this 
C:\Users\YOURCOMPNAME\AppData\Local\Jacob_Janerka\Paradigm\Savegames

 

1. Windowed mode only works as 1920x1080 

You can actually manually change the resolution with the config.ini file in your app data

C:\Users\yourcomputername\AppData\Local\Jacob_Janerka\Paradigm\ (Windows)
OR
library-application support- Jacob_Janerka-paradigm (Mac)

Open up the config.ini file and put in the desired resolution. I have used 640x360 in the example below.

2. Paradigm is stuck and can no longer move out of certain boundary area. 

This is a very rare bug, but if it happens, you will have to load a new save. Contact me @ paradigmgamehelp@gmail.com if you want a custom save game in the area you got up to (if you do not have a close save game)

3. Paradigm is completely black and there is no background music or sound 

I recently updated the game, but forced no updates for old users. I did this because updating the game will break previous saves (which is why Paradigm is black and the sound does not work) However as long as you keep your save you can go into the betas (if on steam) and choose "Original Release". However you can also choose one of the pre-baked saves from above too.
