SCION AR GAME FAQ
GAME TROUBLESHOOTING


Quick Tips:

  1. Use under normal lighting conditions. Direct or bright lights can create glares, which affect marker detection. Darkly lit rooms do not allow enough light for marker detection.

  2. Ensure you are the correct distance from your webcam. If your marker is too far away or too close it can be hard to detect.

  3. Make sure your marker is not bent, wrinkled or folded. Markers with creases and wrinkles can affect detection.

  4. Avoid tilting the marker out of the view of your camera. Partially visible markers cannot be detected.

  5. If you are still experiencing any issues with detection, please restart the game or try playing the game in keyboard mode.
