Additional Comments

Updated the test result 2009-10-23 (sound, display without flickering textures, rating). The application uses two CPU cores if available. More CPU cores are not utilized. Sound works when starting the application directly without the launcher. To prevent the flickering black textures, open the DAOCharacterCreator.ini and set FullScreen=0 GraphicsDetailLevel=0 DisableMRT=1­ Unfortunately by using this the game looses a lot of graphics detail.
