What works

Launching Running Saving Uploading Everything! (with particular settings)­­

What does not

Hi-quality modes, higher resolution. To get it to work, had to limit resolution to 800x600, had to turn graphics options all down to their lowest settings, and did the other things suggested by previous users (DisableMRT=1, FullScreen=0). Then it ran, yay!


What was not tested

Tested everything the character creator can do.
