Issues fixed

Slow loading level and aero disabling

Occurs only on Windows Vista and Windows 7, because of the special graphic stack WDDM.
Fix slow load level and spontaneous shutdown aero interface
  • Install game only on Windows XP, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.[4]

Notes

Using Windows 8.1 or 10 significantly reduces the launch time of the level, perhaps this is due to improvements in the WDDM graphics stack.[5]

Notes

  1. Games for Windows - LIVE DRM features: SSA activation, requires a Microsoft account - local profiles are not supported.
  2. 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>/206210/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (206210) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
