  1. 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).
  2. 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>/564150/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (564150) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.


  1. Verified by User:AmethystViper on 2021-03-25
    Did not require steam_appid.txt or similar workarounds to launch the game without Steam. Sadly, the sequel uses Steam DRM.

    Tested with the English version.
  3. Verified by User:AmethystViper on February 4, 2017
    Tested the game on a 120Hz monitor with V-sync enabled, which caused the game to increase speed to match with the high refresh-rate.
