Hi.
After I have bought Killer Instinct for my Xbox, the Definitive Edition, I have only had problems with the game.
I installed the free version to see what it is like, and chose to buy the game.
1. It is only named Killer Instinct and not Definitive Edition in the games list. Is that normal?
2. I'm following this menu guide:
http://rossminor.me/KI/KIMainMenu.html
When I choose the first menu item for single player, go down once for the story mode and press A, the game kind of freeze. I can't do anything, and can't back out of the menus as well. Using OCR does not give me any useful results on what's going on.
When using OCR in the main menu, it seems like the shadow lords is at the top, and then single player, which seems weird.
Sometimes when using OCR, I read a message about rotating characters. So I'm not sure on if it's still the demo version which makes some weird issues for me.
Before I uninstall the whole game including all packages, I would like to ask if I'm just missing anything basic, like some start up procedure, or if you have any other clues on what to try, before reinstalling the game. It takes very long time to install...

Best regards SLJ.

Hi,
@SLJ The definitive edition is actually an app, used as a glorified game launcher and behind the scenes viewer. You still launch the actual game the regular way. Also, the menus ahve chagned since the guide. First option in the game's main menu since season 3, is now shadow lords. To get to single player, you go down once from the main menu now. From there, I don't actually remember. I know the first option seems to be fight, so you can tap down once, tap a for single player, then tap a twice for single fight, however, I don't know my way around the options. It's been this way for a few months now.

Hi Aaron.
Thanks a lot. The problem was I thought the menu guide was up to date. big_smile
I have send a request to Ross asking if he wanna update it. In the meantime, I'll try to do OCR which works most of the time. I find it difficult to get used to the fighting in this game.
Thanks for explaining the Definitive edition program. Makes sense. Well, I hope I'll get more used to the game, because it seems really great. I'm surprised how much speech there is in the game like what kind of combo you are doing. The notes from the sound track while navigating the pause menu made me laugh a lot. THis is just amazing! big_smile

So one of the things I'm having a blast with now is the character and profile customisation.  it's purely cosmetic, but it's just a lot of fun being able to actually change that stuff.
and SLJ, the complete killer instinct guide is a good bet to help get you started as well as maximilian on youtube. 
Combo assist if you can turn it on will help, and to be honest it allows you to play the game normally even when activated.

@dan_c: My biggest issue at the moment is figuring out the menus. OCR does not always work for me.
I'll check out the combo assist.

true, the strange game font makes it a bit tricky, but the tool tips that describe stuff usually help out.  some menus are easier to read than others as well.

Hi!
I'm working on the definitive edition menù guide, and I hope to post it in a few weeks. I've already completed the shadow lord and the single player mode up to the training menues,. Do you want me to post it even if it's not complete yet, or do you prefer to wait and have it all in one round? It's the steam version, but I think it has the same structure as the xbox one.

Hi.
Awesome. You can just post it, and then update the guide afterwards. Then I will gladly include it in my Xbox guide if I may.

Best regards SLJ.
