Alice: Madness Returns Errors, Crashes, Freezes, and Fixes

1# Alice Madness Returns Freezes on Xbox 360
If you have installed Alice Madness Returns on hard drive of your console, you may come across random freezes. Try running the game off disc to resolve this issue.

Those who are experiencing Disc Spinning sound with Xbox 360 when the game starts, have some patience, I will update If I found a workaround on that.

2# Alice Madness Returns Surround Display Tweak – 3D
Those of you who either have ATI Eyefinity or Nvidia Surround display may notice menu squashed in center when you try to run the game in tri resolution. You may not be able to see the menu in certain cases, while the game works fine on single monitor.

5# Alice Madness Returns Framerate Fix – 60 FPS Tweak
Open Alice.ini in text editor, you can find the file located here:

\Documents\My Games\Alice Madness Returns\AliceGame\Config\AliceEngine.ini

and Set these to your desired values for framerate boost:

MaxSmoothedFrameRate=60
UseVsync=False

6# Alice Madness Returns Auto Save Corrupted
If your game froze while playing and you were forced to restart the game, you may lose all your progress if you have been relying on auto save. In this case, it would most probably be corrupted, so make sure you are saving progress manually at the start of each chapter.
