  • Marluxia’s "wheel" attack doesn’t move correctly when at 60fps or higher[6]

  18. ZoidReborn on Reddit (via r/KingdomHearts): "KH2 on the other hand has had some crashes. Im only on Mulan world after leaving hollow bastion but ive had a couple of crashes in the playthrough so far. Doesnt seem to be when anything specific happens either or tied to time played. Happened while doing mini games in twilight town, leaving Merlins house, and in the slow-mo scene immediately as I beat Shan Yu... they dont happen often but its definitely annoying. Its just a freeze for about 2 seconds then crash to desktop, and epic launcher re-opens"
  19. k23usa on Reddit (via r/KingdomHearts): "Yeah several hours later the game just crashed while set at 60fps during when a bunch of heartless were summoned. It seemed to last a lot longer when set at 60fps, but it can still crash randomly."

  25. Karimsucks on Reddit (via r/KingdomHearts): "the only bug I've dealt with so far is in 2.8 and more specifically in DDD where anytime a loading screen happens (meaning the heart icon starts spinning) there's a chance the game crashes and it crashes often, it feels like every other load screen the game shuts down on me and it's making the game borderline unplayable. I use a gaming laptop (it's an HP OMEN-15 and I've checked the specs, it's sturdy and should run DDD no problem) and I'm at a loss, DDD is the only game I haven't played in the entire series and I hope there's a fix or a patch incoming, any tips appreciated"
  26. Random Dips (@RandomDips) on Twitter: "Went through my latest runs and compiled all the crashes I remembered. For reference, I have an I7-8700K + 1080Ti, running the game in 1080p60 (2 months ago always High Preset, last 2 runs Low Preset) so my hardware should not be the problem here. #FixKHonPC
    Part 1:"
  27. Random Dips (@RandomDips) on Twitter: "And here's Part 2 of the Crash Compilation.
    #FixKHonPC"
  28. Beeboy (@beeboycubed) on Twitter: "I can confirm that on Version 1.0.0.0 of KH3, you CAN OBTAIN OBLIVION! All you need to do is do the final boss gauntlet ON THE ENGLISH VOICE LANGUAGE! This was on my Critical *uncleared* save game, but it works on cleared game saves as well. Thank you @SAUNIQUEXIII for the tip!"
  29. Ninten on Twitch: "WEEB" (Clipped by GameAddict)
  30. Beeboy (@beeboycubed) on Twitter: "This is probably the biggest FPS bug I've seen so far. Yozora's tractor beam moves much faster at higher FPS, meaning you must Airslide or Glide at an extremely tight angle to not get caught in it."
  31. Beeboy (@beeboycubed) on Twitter: "First true FPS glitch I've seen in KH3 on PC. The lightning during Data Terranort's DM seems to go about 100%-150% slower on 120FPS. 60FPS limit has it act completely like normal."
  32. (deleted) (???) on Reddit (via r/KingdomHearts): "In KH3, certain animations (Such as Nobodies and Rapunzel specifically) update at a lower framerate than the game does, which results in some really jarring scenarios."
