What works

Pretty much everything from the start to the end.

What does not

  • Game won't launch until you install Windows Media Player.
  • Sound can be choppy and be not synced with cutscenes. 
  • Alt-tab can break the mouse. 
  • Whole game can be out of sync.


  • You need to install WMP9 then WMP10 and at the end WMP11 to run the game.
  • If sound is choppy and not synced you must change the Windows version to Windows XP.
  • If the whole game is out of sync you'll need to change JobThread to 4 and RenderingThread to OFF in config.ini which is located in Documents folder.
