Issues fixed[edit]

Hoppa chase glitch[edit]

On some systems, the Hoppa chase scene will stutter, preventing advancement. As this doesn't apply to all systems, you may be able to copy saved games to different computers.
Compatibility mode[3]
  • Enable compatibility mode for Rogue Trooper - Windows XP SP3.


Does not work with Windows Vista, although the framerate is reported to improve slightly.
Seems to worsen during weapon fire.
Save game modification[citation needed]
  1. Go to the save game data location.
  2. Open the appropriate saved game with a hex editor such as HxD.
  3. Offset $2D8 is the current level - 05 is the hoppa chase. Change to 06


Always backup your saved games before modifying them.
Skipping the mission will likewise skip salvage that is otherwise found.
