Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 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>/904540/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (904540) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
  2. 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. Not all resolutions may appear when using dgVoodoo 2. If this occurs, select a lower resolution with the same desired aspect ratio and bit depth and force the desired resolution in the dgVoodoo Control Panel instead. Creating a custom resolution may be necessary for widescreen if this happens.
