Issues fixed[edit]

Stuttering mouse/black boxes around objects with hardware acceleration[edit]

Even with this fix, there is some minor stuttering with the videos.
Update DOSBox/nGlide[2]
  1. Install nGlide.
  2. Download DOSBox SVN Daum.
  3. Extract into the game's DOSBox folder, replacing the existing files.
  4. Launch the game using the 3Dfx shortcut in the Start screen/Start menu.
  5. In-game, go to Options\Hardware Acceleration.
  6. Enable "Acceleration".
  7. Play the game.

Game crashes while speaking to Baccata at the Huline Village Cantina[edit]

Edit dosboxLOL2_single.conf in the games main directory[3]
  1. Open the file with a Text editor like Notepad++ (make a backup first.)
  2. Look for lolg.exe -CD ..
  3. Add the line -LOWMEM at the end so it should look like: lolg.exe -CD . -LOWMEM
  4. Launch the game, graphics will be set to low, dont change it and play the cutscene in the Cantina
  5. Save the game after leaving the Cantina and exit
  6. Change the file back to its default to value lolg.exe -CD ..
  7. Play the game and change settings back to your preference
