Issues fixed[edit]

No In-game Audio[edit]

Change speaker setup[citation needed]
  1. Go to the sound settings and select "Playback Devices", then select your device and change your current "Speaker Setup" settings. Switching from Surround Sound to Stereo can fix this issue, vice-versa.
  2. When the game opens, entering the Multiplayer menu appears to restore sound and should retain when you return to the Main menu. This is not a permanent fix, however, and will have to be performed with each startup of the game.

CTD after Opening and on Reload[edit]

If after the scene with the main character, and every subsequent load you have a CTD, as well as an Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 processor. Run the game in Windows 98/Me Compatibility mode, the game runs well thereafter[citation needed]

Unable to Update to 1.03[edit]

There are two versions of the 1.02 patch for the game, one of which will prevent 1.03 from being installed. This can be fixed by reinstalling the game and patches, updating via the game's patcher if possible[citation needed]

Game crashes immediately after launch[edit]

Delete or rename "systemdetection.dll" in the installation folder[citation needed]

Flashing/Flickering while playing game[edit]

Delete or rename systemdetection.dll in the <path-to-game>\[3]

In-game stuttering, freezing issues[edit]

The game will not use CPU cores and threads properly on certain modern systems.
Each time you launch the game, change the core affinity for ACBSP.exe. First select 1 core and confirm and directly after it select all cores and confirm again. [4]

Game crashes in Shahkulu fight[edit]

Game keeps crashing on start-up when engaged in Shahkulu fight[citation needed]
  1. Start the game #Alt+tab out of the game and start Task Manager
  2. On Detail tab, locate ACRSP.exe and right-click on it. Click on 'Set affinity'. Remove all checkmarks, except CPU 0 and click OK
  3. Alt+tab back to game and complete the fight with rather low FPS
  4. After the fight, reverse these steps to get framerate back.
