Tested in clean 64-bit prefix with Windows version set to 7.
Game will fail to launch with an error message claiming that there needs to be 3MB of memory available in the system. Fixed by patching the exe-file using info from https://www.sacah.net/2008/01/how-to-edit-director-player-60-to-stop.html.
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.

|44931||Macromedia Director Player 5.0/6.0 based games fail to run: "This program requires at least 3MB of free virtual memory to run" (Nine: The last Resort)||NEW||View|
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 https://www.sacah.net/2008/01/how-to-edit-director-player-60-to-stop.html. (mirror http://web.archive.org/web/201...)
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 (https://manpages.org/cpulimit )when needed.
