Alice: Madness Returns Troubleshooting
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.
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.
If you are experiencing any of these issues, you may want to tweak the Alice.ini to fix this issue.
\Documents\My Games\Alice Madness Returns\AliceGame\Config\AliceEngine. ini
and change these resolutions to your desired resolution to be able to play the game on your center screen without disabling surround setup.
If you want to disable the FPS cap, do the tweak below:
Mouse Spinning, Cursor Movement
If you have any USB device plugged as you start the game, you may notice the cursor goes automatically to the top left of the screen. If so, unplug any of these devices and restart the game.
If you are experiencing several unresponsive buttons or mouse/keyboard malfunctioning, you may want to disable all the USB devices plugged into your computer, and restart the game. Make sure the game picks up your default controller setup.
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:
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.
If you are trying to play the game using your Xbox 360 or PS3 controller, make sure you have unplug all other third party controllers or USB devices. The game may not work well if you have third party controllers connected to your PC.
