'''Notes'''
 
{{ii}} This removes the frame rate cap and allows the game to be played at modern resolutions. The only downside is that the game is stretched at non-4:3 resolutions and there's currently no way to fix this.

==Improvements and Fixes==
 
===No-CD Fix===
 
{{ii}} To launch the game, the CD must be inserted. This causes problems on modern devices that do not have a CD drive. {{cn|date=June 2021}}
 
 
{{Fixbox|description=Remove CD-Check|ref=<ref>{{Refcheck|user=Hhtv|date=2016-05-16}}</ref>|fix=
 
# Open <code>sb3.exe</code> in [https://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/ HxD].
 
# Press ''CTRL+R'' and go to the ''Hex-Value'' tab
 
# Search for <code>84 C0 75 07 6A 04 E9 55 01 00 00</code> and replace it with <code>90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90</code>
 
# Set ''Search Direction'' to ''All'' and press ''Replace All''
 
# Save the result as a new file called <code>sb3p.exe</code> (or anything other than sb3.exe)
 
 
'''Notes'''
 
{{ii}} While this does remove the CD-Check it's still unstable on modern systems. You might need to open the patched file multiple times until the game launches.
