Issues unresolved[edit]

  • Cannot select 1366x768 resolution despite having 1366x768 native desktop resolution.[5]
  • If you take many hits the controller may disconnect and then reconnect, causing the game to lag.
  • 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.[6]

Issues fixed[edit]

ERROR 08[edit]

Crash during prelude.
Turn down graphics settings[7]

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

ERR09: Unsupported function[edit]

Happens if the used resolution is unsupported[citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open Config.ini.
  3. In the [DISPLAY] section, set FullScreen="OFF", or create those sections and lines as necessary.
