BLOOD. BULLETS. BANANAS
My Friend Pedro, DeadToast Entertainment’s latest installment is now here. This 2D, casual shoot’em up game is only 3 days old, but has already stolen people’s hearts, with its return to “bullet time”. The game is available to play on Nintendo Switch and PC.
Even though the developers can pride themselves with great Metacritic reviews, unfortunately, just like all newly released games, My Friend Pedro is not free of bugs. For example, many gamers are mentioning that the game feels really stuttering, despite running at 60FPS.
In this article, we will go through the most common My Friend Pedro issues reported by users, and their corresponding solutions, if available.
My Friend Pedro reported bugs
- Camera stuttering
- No sound available
- Sluggish mouse movement
- Freeze and crash at launch
- Players can’t use exclusive full screen
1. Camera stuttering
The most common issue out there. Gamers are reporting a lot of stuttering encountered during camera movements, even though the game is capped at 60FPS. Even though this is not a game breaking issue, it’s still extremely frustrating, by limiting the gaming experience.
The gameplay of the game and the premise is amazing, but like a lot of Unity games, it just stutters like crazy. Running at 2560×1440 144hz the camera is incredibly stuttery, which is a shame because the movement and gameplay is so buttery in comparison.
The good news is that some players have confirmed that capping the game at 50FPS fixed the problem for them. Although the solution might not work for everyone, you should try it out and see if it fixes the issue for you.
2. No sound available
Some players are complaining about not being able to hear the sound while playing. Although this is not a widely spread issue, it still causes frustration.
It seems that the issue is encountered due to a limitation of the Unity game engine, which is not compatible with audio enhancement software’s.
3. Sluggish mouse movement
If you are disappointed by how the mouse cursor is reacting inside the game, you’re not the only one.
Related to the camera stuttering issues, this is another bug that is making the PC version of the game hard to play.
Since playing with controller is way too tricky (maybe with some Elite paddles would be ok, but with only 4 shoulder buttons is too restricting… and I hate clicking L3 and R3) I tried with m+k, much more fun to play but my God if the mouse cursor is sluggish… is like moving it at 30FPS.
If you prefer using a controller though, then you are in luck, as the playing experience is a lot more flawless.
4. Freeze and crash at launch
Some gamers are not able to even start playing the game. Reports are coming in from users experiencing crashes when loading up the game.
Got the game 20 mins ago, as I launch the game, it shows the loading bar going to around 90%, after that it goes to black screen, freezes and crashes to desktop. I’ve tried disabling nvidia instant replay and highlights, so far not working.
If you are experiencing this issue, one potential workaround that could help you is checking your antivirus’ firewall, as the game could be seen as a blocked application.
5. Players can’t use exclusive full screen
This is not exactly a bug within the game, but more of a limitation of it. It seems that the game cannot actually be played in exclusive full screen mode, but only in windowed and borderless window.
You have almost zero video options, the games doesn’t go in exclusive fullscreen but only in windowed and borderless window (that is falsely called “fullscreen”).
These are the most common My Friend Pedro bugs reported by gamers. The good news is that the developers are actively working on fixing these issues as soon as possible. Don’t forget to install the latest updates as soon as they are available for an improved gaming experience.
