Issues fixed[edit]

No In-game Audio[edit]

Change speaker setup[citation needed]
  1. Go to the sound settings and select "Playback Devices", then select your device and change your current "Speaker Setup" settings. Switching from Surround Sound to Stereo can fix this issue, vice-versa.
  2. When the game opens, entering the Multiplayer menu appears to restore sound and should retain when you return to the Main menu. This is not a permanent fix, however, and will have to be performed with each startup of the game.

CTD after Opening and on Reload[edit]

If after the scene with the main character, and every subsequent load you have a CTD, as well as an Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 processor. Run the game in Windows 98/Me Compatibility mode, the game runs well thereafter[citation needed]

Unable to Update to 1.03[edit]

There are two versions of the 1.02 patch for the game, one of which will prevent 1.03 from being installed. This can be fixed by reinstalling the game and patches, updating via the game's patcher if possible[citation needed]

Game crashes immediately after launch[edit]

Delete or rename "systemdetection.dll" in the installation folder[citation needed]

Flashing/Flickering while playing game[edit]

Delete or rename systemdetection.dll in the <path-to-game>[3]
