Below is a collection of the 10 most common issues we get regularly regarding Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers. While not comprehensive, you may find it useful to browse this short top ten list of problems and solutions to see if your issue is included.
1. No Sound for 64bit Windows 8
To fix this error, go into the Tiny and Big main directory. Create a temporary folder and move all files (but not directories) into it. Then change directories to the bin64 directory. Select all files there and copy them into the main directory.
2. Camera won’t stop moving when using controller or mouse
You may need to use the SDL launch option. Of note, this will turn off the rumble effect, but wil make the game otherwise playable. Try the setting:
3. Choppy frame rate in Linux
For OpenGL support, it is recommended to use Gnome 2.0 or Gnome 3.4 or higher.
4. Game not working on integrated graphics chip
The game is only designed to work on more advanced, dedicated graphics cards – specifically Nvidia or ATI/AMD hardware. It also is not designed to work on Intel graphics chips/cards. This is not a bug, but simply a design limitation. As such it won’t be “fixed” in any scheduled release.
5. I get an error stating a file cannot be recognized
You likely have a corrupted file. To verify this, right click on the game and select properties then the local files tab and click “verify integrity of game cache”. Alternately, you may need to reinstall the game.
6. I get an error “No running steam client detected”
Sometimes Steamworks fails to start properly. In such instances try restarting the game and, if that fails, try switching to offline mode and back to online mode.
7. Game hangs at initial load screen on Ubuntu system
Try changing the resolution in the launch options:
8. Game controls not working correctly with my Razer Nostromo and Xbox 360 controller
These two devices will not operate correctly during game play if both used on the same computer. To fix issue, you will need to deactivate the Nostromo HID in Windows device manager. To do this, click on the device’s driver tab and select “disable device”.
9. My Razor Sabertooth seems to be malfunctioning, making the game unplayable
In Windows, add the following launch options to Steam to manually select SDL:
10. How do I manually change the resolution?
Add –dialog in the launch settings. This should display all options when the game starts. You can later remove it once you have the settings you desire.
