Giana’s Return v1.0 – Transparency Bug

Some users reported a transparency bug. The issue has been tracked down and we will provide an updated graphics data file soon. A complete package fix will follow for v1.01.



Windows Version – False Positive

Some people obviously have a problem with their Anti-Virus claiming that the Giana’s Return executable is having a virus. The exe changes the screen resolution and checks for connected devices such as joypads or joysticks. This might be seen as critical action and makes the one or other Antivirus moan. The majority of Antivirus-Solutions acts correct and does not find anything.
