Hardcore game mode, Uber-hardcore game mode
The main problem of release version is to make it run. The only significant difference between backer sneak peek version (which worked almost flawlessly before) and released one is Black Forest Games intro movie logo in windows media video format. Game crashed at the moment of supposed company logo display. As a result, windows media player 10 (via winetricks) installation fixed the problem. The rest of the installation order remains the same as in pre-release (Public Demo and Backer sneak peek) versions (i.e. install on clean wineprefix with windows 7 emulation setting). Game runs flawlessly, but sometimes sudden crashes may happen (on game exit or boss level unlock, for example). However, these do not hinder gameplay experience. And, game happen to crash in windows too. Another side note: release version works actually better than pre-release backer sneak peek version (i.e. sound bugs were fixed).
