IMG Review: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
- Places in the game where the screen would go black if you jumped the wrong way are now fixed.
- Mouse control under OS X is smoother. You may need to re-adjust the mouse sensitivity in the Options screen.
- On video cards with 16 MB or less of VRAM, the game will reset Texture Detail to medium if you try to set it to "high." High texture detail on those video cards can led to crashes in the game or poor game performance.
