In our savegame database you can find savegame29 (Droggeljug Achievement Bug) with which you can unlock the achievement. Please do the following:
1. Insert it in your savegame folder here: "C:\Users\*your username*\AppData\Local\Daedalic Entertainment\Deponia\savegames".
2. Please remove all other files from this folder (you don't have to delete them, simply copy them to a different folder so they don't appear in the savegames folder anymore).
3. Disable the Steam Cloud synchronization: right-click on the game in your Steam library --> Properties --> Updates --> remove tick for "Enable Steam Cloud synchronization for Deponia".
4. Start the game IN Droggeljug mode.
Sometimes Rufus slides out of his walkmap and can't find the way back to it. If this happens to you, please try to switch to the main menu and back to the game. If he's still astray, try leaving the screen by doubleclicking on one of the arrows that make you change rooms.
If there are none or if this does not help, please find a suitable savegame from our database and continue playing from that point.
Always make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements of the game. Very often the requirements of the graphic cards are underestimated for our games. However, all backgrounds, characters and animations are hand-drawn, which needs a lot of video memory and a strong graphics card.
Before you purchase a game, always check whether your hardware can provide the minimum video memory (usually 256 MB or 512 MB dedicated memory). Most NVIDIA and AMD cards do that.
Problems can occur when using on-board Intel cards or chips (usually on Laptops) which share their memory with the processor. These Shared Memory cards cannot be recommended because they are too weak to load all the graphics and animations.
Additionally, please check whether you are using the latest graphic card driver. Very often outdated drivers are the source of a variety of problems in our games. The best way to update your driver is to look directly at the manufacturer's page of your graphic card. Since automatic Windows updates do not always find the latest drivers, we recommend looking for them manually.
If you own the game for a longer time now, your game has probably gone through different engine updates which make your old savegames incompatible. Please check out our savegame database for the 3.3 version of the game and load a savegame which suits your progress. Please make sure to delete all older savegames from your savegame folder.
Please try the following: go to the main installation folder of the game and right-click on the .exe. Then select "Properties" and "Compatibility", click on "Change High DPI Settings", tick the option "Override high DPI scaling behavior." and leave "Scaling performed by:" set to "Application". Save the changes and the game should start in fullscreen now. If it doesn't, please also tick "Use this setting to fix scaling problems for this program instead of the one in Settings".
If you are using an older version of Windows 10, tick the option "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" under "Properties" and "Compatibility".
You can collect the item "Embellishment" after Rufus gathered access to the elevator which leads to the Upper Platform of the Lower Ascension station. You can combine the items "Embellisment" and "Chewing Gum" and it will become a slingshot; you can withdraw this combination by right-clicking on the created slingshot. After this, the combination of "Embellishment" and "Mop Handle" is possible, which blocks the game progess, because you can't create the slingshot anymore.
If this situation occurs, please download the savegame20 which can be found in our Savegame Database. This savegame is set directly after solving the mosaic minigame.
