• Bad ground collider in courtyard (Tilo is floating next to well)
• Kerold’s bucket appears in the wrong place when Tilo empties it
• The hammer puzzle (rings) in the flooded cell sometimes becomes unresponsive
• The loading bar restarts from zero when it's almost done loading a save
• Kerold still sometimes moves from his stool
• Rolo doesn't show greaves marker when he should
• The number of candle in the inventory is wrong after reloading a save
• Cases where the candle on the candlestick doesn't deplete anymore
• Rare cases of keys not being on a guard's belt after a reload
• The fur on some guards is not properly oriented
• The far tower section disappears when stepping back into the small tower on the rampart
• Rats can walk through some walls on top of the main tower (near Silas)
• Some levers cannot be activated by throwing a projectile at them
• Tilo doesn’t animate when throwing a stick while being assaulted by bees
• Tilo doesn’t hold the candlestick/lantern correctly after falling on this butt and getting back up
• Some cases where map makers’ visibility don’t accurately reflect whether or not an item was already picked up
• It is sometimes impossible to loot a guard’s items after he’s been knocked out on his back
• Stamina depletion sometimes stutters when Tilo’s sprinting down a slope/stairs
• The inventory can be closed even when a tutorial about it is currently displayed
• Guards can walk through the wooden walls of the stables

• Some guard attack sounds are not playing
• If Tilo dies while opening a container the container UI remains on screen after reloading
• Lighting up the correct obelisk’s candle with the firesteel (instead of the candlestick) doesn’t register properly for the “Heroes All” quest

• In the footnotes UI some words might be slightly cut off to the right
• Missing geometry to doorway arch to the actual armory room at the bottom of the spiral staircase

• The main tower disappears while it should remain visible when entering the shortcut from the garden to the armory
• The guard patrolling the armory stairwell does not react to Tilo’s presence
• Tilo partially clips through the cliffs near the last obelisk overlooking the lake in the northern slopes
• When interacting with the basket elevator counterweight in the garden and the basket starts to come down and Tilo runs into the armory shortcut before the basket reaches the bottom and then comes back, the basket is not interactable anymore (say that sentence in one breath)
• Some HUD elements appear very aliased when running at a lower resolution than 1080p
• The path at the bottom of the northern slopes is open (stairs leading to void)
• The brisance warning in the armory is clipping through the column and is not readable
• Bear traps can’t be triggered by throwing a stick at them
• Tilo can change in front of Rolo (how rude)
• The peculiar physical condition Tilo develops after completing the mushroom quests is still present after reloading a save (when it shouldn’t)
• The brisance description erroneously refers to a wooden barrel
• The sound of Tilo hiding in barrels is too loud
• The obelisk quest doesn’t work if Tilo lights up the candles using his candlestick instead of his firesteel

• The intentionally missing words on the obelisk quest parchment now use dots instead of underscores
• Tilo won’t throw projectiles at NPCs anymore
