    Hi warriors, the work you are doing to improve Rune 2 is truly superb, in this case I would like to give my contribution and report small tricks and tips to make the game even better. First of all, I would like to report the absence of subtitles for the initial intro, narrated in English only, it would be important to add subtitles for the initial intro to the game. I also found it difficult to play with the gamepad, it seems that the game does not completely support the use of the gamepad, especially in the game menus. Also with regard to at least the Italian language, it seems that not everything has been translated completely, even by setting the Italian language, some quests are displayed in English, finally, despite the fact that I have a fairly performing PC (i7-7700, Gtx2070, 16 gb ram ) I have difficulty reaching 60fps even with lower settings, and despite this, there are also many drops in framerates and stuttering in various stages of the game. I hope these little tricks are taken into consideration to further improve the game. Thanks for your attention.

    I’ve updated the game today and read that you recommend to create a new character.
    So I’ve done it and encountered two major gamebreakers:
    – all quests become unfinished once you load your save
    – there are no anvils, wet stones and rune forges in the world

    I didn’t encounter these problems on old save though.
