-- Official documentation
It's a .dll extension mod for the original .exe file, to improve compatibility with modern systems: It extends the amount of screen resolutions and it allows you to use widescreen monitors for example. For the full changelist, see the documentation at:
What does not
The dll-injector doesn't work. You can trigger it to load by defining a d3d8: native, builtin override but in the end it will just crash on game start.
What was not tested
There is a .exe installer and a .zip archive. Obviously, don't use the installer if you can just copy-paste a single file.
