Issues unresolved[edit]

Bad draw distance[edit]

Draw distance makes the game hard to play. On older computers it seems to be better, but on modern systems it's hard to see anything. Compatibility settings do nothing to fix the issue.

FMV movies aren't visible[edit]

On newer systems, the FMVs cannot be seen. The audio from them can be heard, but there's no video.
