Issues unresolved[edit]

Crash when switching to the Voice-over-Net settings[edit]

When switching through the settings tabs, the Voice-over-Net tab causes the game to crash or freeze on modern systems. Some users report that running the game in Windows XP compatibility mode prevents this.

Notes

  1. SafeDisc retail DRM does not work on Windows 10[1] or Windows 11 and is disabled by default on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 when the KB3086255 update is installed.[2]
  2. 2.0 2.1 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).
  3. 3.0 3.1 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>/32650/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (32650) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
