Solarus TIPS

  • Each game is its own self-contained game, and no overarching settings exist.
  • Some games don't autostart in Fullscreen so you need to either Select + West (X, Square) or press CTRL + Enter or Alt + Enter
  • To quit games you need to press Escape that exists on in the radial menu system for the controllers.
