Issues unresolved

Broken hardware renderer

The hardware renderer is broken on modern operating systems, causing severe graphical corruption and depth buffer problems. Using dgVoodoo 2 helps these issues partially, but does not fix the depth errors. A patch by Dege which improved the depth buffer problems to some extent is available in this Vogons thread.

Crash when switching to the Voice-over-Net settings

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 SP2 compatibility mode prevents this.
