Key points

FMV playback requires the Indeo 5 codec. An alternative codec replacement exists for modern operating systems.
16-bit installer doesn't run on modern systems. 32-bit InstallShield 3 works, but the game may not create desktop or start menu shortcuts. [1]

Controller support[edit]

A fix is required for the game to recognize XInput D-pad and analog triggers when assigning controls.
Use XInput Plus[1]
  1. Download and run XInput Plus.
  2. Set the Target Program to MMX4.exe.
  3. Go to the KeyAssign tab, click the Left Stick drop-down menu, set it to Multiple Key, then check Left Stick and DPAD.
  4. Go to the DirectInput tab, then check Enable DirectInput Output.
  5. Click Customize, then assign the following buttons:
    • Left and Right Triggers as Button 7/8, respectively.
    • Back/View and Start/Menu buttons as Button 10/9, respectively for proper in-game Start and Select placements.
    • Left and Right Stick buttons as Button 11/12, respectively.
    • And the Guide button as Button 13
  6. (Optional) Go to the Settings tab, go to Other, and uncheck Enable Init Beep to disable the start-up sound when launching the game.
  7. Click Apply to save settings and install DLLs into the installation folder.
  8. Launch the game and configure your controller from the in-game Button Config settings from the Options menu.
