Issues unresolved

Loadings take absurd amount of time / poor performance

This issues seem to be partially related to how the game was coded (running mainly using one thread) and most likely can't be fixed without access to original source code.[1]

Issues fixed

Running the game breaks down start bar / explorer.exe
