Issues fixed[edit]

Game doesn't start on low-end PC[edit]

By default game use 3D acceleration when you start the game for the first time. This make very low-end computers unable to start
Disable 3D acceleration[citation needed]
  1. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SteamPopCap\ZumasRevenge
  2. Add the following DWORDs respectively with value 0 and 1
Is3D
Pre3D

Can't use high-Resolution mode[edit]

Force game into HD resolution mode[citation needed]
  1. Edit <path-to-game>\compat.cfg.
  2. Search for the following two functions (line 53):
function(int) GetAppDefaultRes
{
	var bool isHiResHardware = call IsNVidiaOrATI();
	log("isHiResHardware = " + isHiResHardware);

	if (isHiResHardware && (compat_AppSysMemTotalMB >= 768) && (compat_AppOrigScreenHeight >= 1000) && (compat_AppVidMemory >= 92))
	{		
		return 1200;
	}
	else
	{
		return 600;
	}

}


function(bool) IsHiResSupported
{
	if (compat_AppVidMemory < 92)
		return false;
	return true;
}

3. Replace those with:

function(int) GetAppDefaultRes
{
	var bool isHiResHardware = call IsNVidiaOrATI();
	log("isHiResHardware = " + isHiResHardware);
		
	return 1200;
	
}


function(bool) IsHiResSupported
{
	return true;
}

Notes

  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>/3620/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (3620) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
