Issues unresolved

Leon Mission 1-1 Co-op glitch

The professor may get stuck on a table and a chair in the ballroom

Workaround[citation needed]

Wait at the checkpoint for 2 to 3 minutes.

Jake Mission 4-4 Co-op glitch

Some players may be dropped upon entering the level.

Chris Mission 4-4 Co-op glitch

After collecting the three passcodes, you enter a quicktime event; the co-op partner might not see the enemies needed to be shot.

Workaround[6]

Complete that section in single-player, and continue the game upon boarding the plane.

Black screen on startup

Some players experience issues with getting a black screen when starting the game.

Workaround

Try waiting 5-10 minutes without interacting with the window and the game might load. Beware that changing graphical settings might cause the same issue and you'll have to wait a couple of minutes again

Issues fixed

ERROR 08 - Out of video memory

Crash can happen during prelude, Chapter 2 beginning of Leon etc.

If the video memory is sufficient the issue can be fixed by using devreorder in conjunction with setting the game to windowed mode. Also disable Special-K Injection as otherwise, the game freezes after multiple controller un/pluggings (add "SpecialK.deny.BH6" empty file in main game folder).

Install devreorder[citation needed]
  1. Copy the files from the x86 folder into the game's main folder
  2. Edit the devreorder.ini to the following and enable Steam Input for the game.

Steam Link Virtual Gamepad (#1)
Steam Link Virtual Gamepad (#2)

ERR09: Unsupported function

Edit configuration file[citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open Config.ini.
  3. In the [DISPLAY] section, set FullScreen="OFF", or create those sections and lines as necessary.

  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>/221040/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (221040) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
