Issues unresolved

Stuttering when running through snow

When running through snow while carrying standard weapons the game stutters about once a second, probably because of animation or physics bug, since framerate remains stable.

Issues fixed

Audio and video out of sync during cutscenes

Cap the frame rate at 60 FPS[9]

Frequent crashes in DX10 mode

Copy old dxgi.dll and d3d10.dll files to the installation folder[10]
  1. Search your C:\Windows\winsxs folder for dxgi.dll and d3d10.dll
  2. The correct dxgi.dll file was modified on 11/20/2010 or 11/21/2010 (depending on region) and is 496 KB.
  3. The correct d3d10.dll file was modified on 7/13/2009 or 7/14/2009 (depending on region) and is 0.98 MB.
  4. Copy both files to your Lost Planet installation folder, where the .exe files are.
