Issues unresolved[edit]

  • Cannot select 1366x768 resolution despite having 1366x768 native desktop resolution.[7]
  • If you take hits plenty of time the controller will disconnect then reconnects but the game will lag doing so.
  • Default mic is always on in multiplayer, there's no option to disable it. Lowering the voice chat volume to 0 won't completely mute it.

Co-op glitches[edit]

  • Leon Mission 1-1: The professor may get stuck on a table and a chair in the ballroom, you can prevent this by waiting at the checkpoint for 2–3 minutes for him to get to where he needs to be.
  • Jake Mission 4-4: Some players may be dropped upon entering the level.
  • Chris Mission 4-4: After collecting the three passcodes, you enter a quicktime event; the co-op partner might not see the enemies needed to be shot. Workaround is to complete that section single-player, and continue the game upon boarding the plane.[8]

Issues fixed[edit]

ERROR 08[edit]

Disadvantage Crash during prelude.

Fix Turn down graphics settings[9]

Turning down graphics settings temporarily during prelude may improve stability long enough to allow you to progress past that stage.

ERR09: Unsupported function[edit]

Fix Happens if the used resolution is unsupported

  1. Open Config.ini with a text editor
  2. In the [DISPLAY] section, set FullScreen="OFF", or create those sections and lines as necessary.
