Key points

This page covers the new 2015 GOG/Steam release. The original 1997 PC-CD release has numerous bugs and is in many ways inferior to this updated version.
Improved port combining features of the original N64 and PC-CD releases, with additional features added such as native widescreen support, increased draw distance, optional graphical enhancements, achievements and mod support.
Uses the 11 kHz recordings from the Nintendo 64 version, rather than the 22 kHz recordings from the PC-CD release.[4]
Steam Workshop integration (GOG users can obtain some of the mods from this page.)
