What was not tested

Tested in clean 64-bit prefix with Windows version set to Windows 7.

I found issues mounting the CD (an actual CD) in both linux and Windows, which in linux was resolved by setting offset=0 in the mounting options, such as:

$ sudo mount -t iso9660 -o offset=0 /dev/sr0 /mnt

"3mb"-patch applied according to how-to.

Also, scrolling through the inventory in-game is too fast for it to be usable. This is bypassed by temporarily slowing the process down to 5% with e.g. "cpulimit" when needed.

HowTo / Notes

Fixing Macromedia

Macromedia Director Player 5.0/6.0 (which Safecracker is developed in) has a bug that it does not correctly recognize available RAM, possibly due to the program being old. This issue presents itself with a popup at startup saying "This program requires at least 3mb of free virtual memory to run".
In order to remove the error popping up at the start of the game (post installation), one need to patch the .exe-file using the method described here (mirror

Managing really fast scrolling in inventory

Scrolling through the inventory in-game is too fast for it to be usable on modern computers. This is bypassed by temporarily slowing the process down to 5% with e.g. cpulimit ( when needed. 

$ ps -eo pid,command | grep sc_

$ cpulimit -p pid -l 5
