Read Full Description


  • The game was using SafeDisc DRM protection, use NoCD to bypass it. If for some reason it doesn't work for you, here's the thread how to install SafeDisc drivers on Windows 10 and run the game
  • It is recommended to run the game in compatibility mode with old version of Windows, like Windows 95/98, 2000 or XP
  • Archive with patch showed 2 warnings on VirusTotal scan, it is safe to use, here's the report
  • Original release of the game had version 1.0, there was patch 1.2 for that release (here's the changelog). Later the publisher re-released the game in 2002, new release was already patched to the version 1.2
  • Even though the game had patch, there's still some unfixed bugs and glitches. Check this page for more details about game's glitches
  • The game works on DirectX 8, so if you're using Windows 8, 8.1, 10 or 11 - you need to enable DirectPlay: Go to Control Panel, and select 'Programs'. Select 'Turn Windows features on and off', click on 'Legacy Components' and check the box 'DirectPlay'. Select OK, once the installation is done, restart your computer
  • Looks like the game doesn't have framerate limit, and when it runs on more than 60 FPS, it may cause troubles. You can set framerate limit in control panel of you video card, if it has such function, or use one of framerate limiter utilities. Or you can try to use custom NoCDs with FPS limit by ChemicalFlood, but we didn't test it, so try it at your own risk
