  • Fixed a bug preventing the player from finishing the "Enigma" level if the player died after inserting the floppy disc.
  • Improvements to supervisor (enemy guard) behavior when searching for and attacking the player.
  • An exclamation mark (!) will now appear over supervisor’s head when spotting you on Easy difficulty setting.
  • The translocator no longer blocks AI vision.

  • You can no longer teleport-stab NPC's.
  • Translocator pickup (in cubicle) now shows correct text.
  • Teleporting while holding guard works a lot better.
