What works


-long-playing ...up to 4 h

-modding ( i got 400 and more MB of mods installed from XL NATION)

What does not

some minor glitch:

 -antialiasing is bugged:when u start with antialisiang on , you can see some extra shadow wich is not supposed to be there , but the same happen if you start the game with antialiasing off, 

point is that if you switch from off to on & vice-versa in the game , the shadowing fall back to normal ( not a real issue )

 - if u run the game in a laptop without the " emulate a virtual desktop 800x600" citis xl complaining about a leak of 800x600 resolution mode (is the default resolution right after installing) and crash back to desktop

with the option enabled : game starts with no problems at all and u can change the resolution "on the fly " in the game menu

*there is a workaround,
