Additional Comments

Tried the game with the Grayface patch. Works without problems, the glitch in the game related bugs is no longer present. If you use redshift or any similar software and adjust the gamma ingame, it'll revert to redshift's gamma setting in a few second, so it you want to change the game's gamma, you should disable redshift for the time being. I don't consider this a bug, but rather a conflict between two programs.
