Essential improvements[edit]

Sui's Fix[edit]

Installation of Wrapper[2]
  1. Download DSound.dll wrapper and extract it.
  2. Move dsound.dll and dsound.cfg to the installation folder.
  3. Start the game.

Notes

If noticeable issues happen - like flags wave too fast, transitions take too long etc. try modifying the value in dsound.cfg file (where lower value results in faster sprite animations and transitions).
Visual C++ 2015 Redist libraries are required for the wrapper to work.
