Got the same AI bug. The "redneck" in the hangar wouldn't open the door in the Nevada level. Limiting the game's FPS to 60 or lower via RivaTuner seems to have fixed it.

A few issues with the game on my (modern) hardware, but nothing severe. Had to play windowed in order to deal with a v-sync issue since the framerate had to be adjusted to make the game work properly (mostly just animation position issues as others have mentioned, but that also froze an NPC not too far into the game).
All the solutions are easily found online, but here's the PC gaming wiki's link for more information in case someone needs it:
Essentially, you just need to download a couple useful programs like "RivaTuner Statistics Server" (RTSS) to limit the game's FPS to 60 (to fix animation issues) and play in Windowed mode to deal with screen tearing and v-sync issues, I think.
I tried using the Borderless Gaming Window application to remove the border while playing, but no dice. It refused to work no matter how many times I tried. The window didn't bother me enough to fiddle with it further and the game isn't that long anyway.
If you're like me and despise things like motion blur and depth of field, then you might also want to:
1. Go to \A52Game\CookedPC
2. Delete or rename the file a52postfx.xxx
After that you can launch the game and it should be better.
Dynamic shadowing also has an ugly rendering bug, but it's not that big of a deal and I only saw it like once, maybe twice but I don't remember it anywhere else. I'd say just deal with it, because the game looks awful all over without the shadowing system.

Man, I don't have that kind of problem!
The game's running smooth, so Idk..
The only problem is that the guys' positions are fucked up during the dialogues, but it's more a fun thing than a really "problem" (:
So man, I can't really help you in this case, sorry y'all :c

ok I have an issue with this game. I think its a scripting bug. I am on the mission where you get the vaccine and what happens is the 2 guys overlap each other while talking to the other guy and once you step in front of the woman. She doesn't give you the vaccine. You have to like go up to her like 20 times and move in front of her a little bit to get the vaccine. Then one of the guys is supposed to open the door and he does not open the door, preventing me from progressing forward in the game. is there a fix for this. I have literally tried messing with the compatibility settings and that does not solve the issue. Any help will greatly be appreciated. I miss playing this game. This forum is probably dead by you never know if you will find an answer on here or not so I thought I would give it a shot.

Remember playing this back in 2009 on a ps3
Pretty fun, but unfortunately came in that weird era where game designers thought brown and colorless games were "realistic"

I have installed it completely and when I am about to click play it is asking me to insert original Blacksite CD
I am using daemon tools and please let me know how to solve this issue

I thought A51 was a better game than Blacksite: A51. It was not installed very long on my PC. At 10gig it is not worth it IMHO. God bless all in these tough times.

Well, as far as a "game review" goes...
The game is quite generic as a FPS. Good graphics (for the age) and generally the game is playworthy. :)
Some maps are kinda "corridor shooting"-style, but overall the game gives you a few hours of joy in shooting bad guys and aliens. :D
I mostly downloaded it for the nostalgia of playing it.
But it's about 10.8 Gb to download, so read some online game reviews if you hesitate.

Just to inform you all. :)
There's no need to download the v1.2 patch, since the ISO version here is the "updated" version.
The NoCD, of course, is optional... ;P

Well, I am downloading now. Good time to try out these old games during CoVid-19 lockout. Will report once I install.
