Additional Comments

How To: a) How To run Resident Evil in Software Mode? 1. Install the game in default directory (recommended full installation!) 2. Download RESIDENT EVIL v1.0c patch 3. Unpack this package into default installation folder (by default C:\Program Files\RESIDENT EVIL) 4. Copy from CD - font2.tim (recommended for stable play) - to installation folder 5. Run Task Manager - wine taskmgr - or create wine shortcut to game In Task Manager - search neweur.exe file and SELECT this. Then in command line add one of this parameters: /nocard1 - no acceleration - video memory version /nocard2 - no acceleration - system memory version An then press OK. Shortcut: Create a shortcut to run this game in your wineprefix and in start line add one of this parameters: /nocard1 - no acceleration - video memory version /nocard2 - no acceleration - system memory version b) How To workaround Jill Scenario freezing? 1. Try to leave out of the door after first enter into dining room. 2. Wesker will tell you to investigate, if you hear gunfire. 3. Try to leave out of the door again - Barry calls you a coward. 4. Talk to Barry about the blood stain - but STAY in this room! 5. Run past the clock - the game runs another cutscene and doesn't hang up Have fun! :) Tested on: Intel Core2Duo E4300 @ 1,8 GHz 3 GB RAM NVidia GeForce GT440 1024 MB VRAM Linux Mint 15 "Olivia" Wine 1.7.7
