If you find yourself stuck with the loading compass over a black background, it is likely that the autosave file is having trouble loading.
Follow the steps below to continue your progress:
- Force quit out of the game. On Windows, press Alt+F4 on your keyboard to close it. On Mac, press COMMAND+OPTION+ESC.
- Relaunch the game.
- When you see the intro animation, press and release the s key.
- This will load your autosave in safeMode.
If the above doesn’t work, you can attempt to bypass your autosave by following the steps above, but pressing and releasing the x key in step 3, above, instead of s.
