Issues fixed

"Your CPU is Outdated" error

The game checks for some SSE4 instructions and if it fails, it shows an error message and refuses to run. The game doesn't use those instructions beyond that test, so bypassing is quite safe.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/256290/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (256290) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
  2. When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
