Issues fixed[edit]

Installing on 64-bit versions of Windows[edit]

The Windows version needs a workaround for the 16-bit Sierra installer when using a 64-bit version of Windows (for the DOS version use DOSBox).
Copy game files[1]
  1. Copy the CD contents to a folder on the system. This will be the installation folder.
  2. If the CD drive letter is not D: edit <path-to-game>\BRSETUP.CFG and change the letter under the [CD] section.
  3. Run the game with WINBR.EXE.

Pixelated graphics when moving camera[edit]

Disable Auto Resolution Adjust[1]

Set Auto Resolution Adjust to Off.
