Hi looney4labs, I don't have enough technical expertise to answer that? All I can say is that the game worked perfectly & now not so much & appreciate more why there are so many 'criticisms' - I'm still finding it playable -just a little more awkward in parts & my lock-pick sequences still seem to work!
It does seem to me unfair on the developers that Microsoft updates are to blame & it's not the first time it's happened!
I can't remember what game I was playing in the past where I had to go back to a restore point to be able to continue after a MS update! (
Maybe if you're having trouble playing the game you could try going back to a restore point before many MS updates?)
