NOTES ON COMPATIBILITY
______________________

FUNCTIONALITY

	No One Lives Forever is designed to function with Windows 95/98/2000/
	ME-compatible graphics and sound cards. Drivers for these various devices are 
	provided by Windows itself or the respective card manufacturers and may 
	occasionally result in compatibility problems beyond our control.

	If you experience any problems, it is always recommended that you obtain the 
	latest drivers for your hardware.  Driver updates resolve the overwhelming 
	majority of compatibility issues.  Most hardware vendors make their drivers 
	available on their web site.  If you are unsure of a web site URL for a 
	particular hardware vendor, you may want to try accessing one of the popular 
	Windows software update sites such as http://www.windrivers.com.  Additionally, 
	a brief list of the chipset and board manufacturer web sites appears below for 
	your reference.

KNOWN ISSUES
____________

WINDOWS 2000:

	A problem with Microsoft's DirectInput may cause mouse or keyboard functions to 
	keep repeating when the keys or buttons are pressed in conjunction with other 
	buttons. Striking the "stuck" key or button again should cause the function to 
	stop repeating.  Microsoft has released a service pack to fix this bug which is 
	available at http://www.microsoft.com/windows.   

	Striking the Shift key five times may cause the 'Stick Key' feature to become 
	enabled in Windows 2000. If this happens, a computer will task switch to a 
	desktop dialogue box with options related to the feature, including one to 
	disable it entirely.

	Under Windows 2000 when running at a 256 color desktop resolution, No One Lives 
	Forever will minimize and nothing happens. User must "End Task" to quit 
	application.  This can be corrected by making sure that your desktop color is 
	set to 16-Bit or higher.


WINDOWS 9x:


FREEZES/LOCKUPS:

    RANDOM FREEZES WITH SOUND BLASTER LIVE! AND PCI 128 UNDER DirectX(r) 8:

    Systems with Sound Blaster Live! or PCI 128 legacy sound cards may freeze randomly
    during gameplay under DirectX(r) 8. This appears to be a DirectX(r) 8 and/or Driver
    issue.  We will continue to look into this. To correct the problem in the meantime,
    just turn off music in the advanced options section of the launcher.  

    SYSTEM LOCKUPS WITH MONSTER MX300 OR OTHER A3D COMPATIBLE SOUND CARD:

    We have determined that this issue is driver related.  Unfortunately, Aureal is no
    longer supporting it's hardware, so drivers that work correctly under newer versions
    of Windows and DirectX are not available. You may find that you can eliminate or
    reduce the frequency of lockups by experimenting with the drivers found on your card
    manufacturer's website, or the last versions of Aureal's reference drivers. If this
    doesn't help, you'll need to disable music in the Adavced options section of the
    launcher. 

ERROR MESSAGES:

	"After quitting the game No One Lives Forever, starting another application or game, 
	will bring up an Explorer error and then a msgserv error."

	This error has to do with the D3D API and is common on D3D games. We've looked at
    this and it seems like it is related to D3D code. DirectX(r) 8 may resolve this issue.

GRAPHICS:

	TEXT ALIGNMENT PROBLEMS ON THE MENUS:  Some cards may display the menu text out 
	of alignment.  While we have done what we can to address this, the problem will 
	need to be corrected through driver updates from the board manufacturers. Please
    check your board manufacturer's web site for the latest drivers. This is seen with
    the ATI Radeon, RAGE 128 Chipsets, and Savage Chipsets.

	MISSING CURSOR ON THE MENUS:  This problem can occur on several different cards 
	and may be fixed by a driver update.  In addition, because some cards do not 
	support a hardware cursor such as the one used in No One Lives Forever, you 
	have the option to disable the hardware cursor via the Advanced Options button 
	from the game launcher. Simply select "Disable Hardware Cursor" and you will
    be provided with a software cursor.

    PROBLEM ADJUSTING CURSOR COLOR: If adjusting the cursor colors is causing No 
    One Lives Forever to crash, please change your screen bit depth to 32-bit 
    (e.g. 800x600x32) If you want, after you adjust your cursor color, you can then 
    change back to 16-bit. We are currently working with nVidia to determine the 
    source of the driver issue.

	INTRO MOVIES PLAYING AT LOW FRAME RATES:  This problem occurs with the following cards: 
	Voodoo Banshee, Voodoo 2/3/4/5. Simply hit the left mouse button to bypass movies.
	Future updates from 3Dfx may reslove this issue. 

	CORRUPTED GRAPHICS IN THE MENUS WITH THE SAVAGE CHIPSET, ATI ALL-IN-WONDER CHIPSETS 
	AND ATI RAGE 128 CHIPSET CARDS:  Turning down all display settings in No One Lives
    Forever to the lowest settings will help remedy this issue. IT's possible the a
    future driver update may solve this issue.

	ATI ALL-IN-WONDER/PRO: We have found that running No One Lives Forever with the
    drivers that ship with the video card is more stable compared to the newer drivers
    that are currently available. ATI will address this issue with a future driver update.

	CORRUPTED GRAPHICS WITH THE MATROX CHIPSET CARDS:  This problem occurs rarely and
    can usually be fixed by choosing 16 Bit, rather than 32 Bit, color mode. 

	CORRUPTED GRAPHICS DURING GAMEPLAY USING VOODOO BANSHEE CHIPSET CARDS:  This problem
    seems to occur most frequently on Windows 2000 systems. Lowering the detail settings
    will most likely resolve the problem. Future driver updates will also reduce this effect.

	VOODOO 3: NO VISIBLE CHROME ON WALLS IN "THE ASSIGNMENT" TRAINING LEVEL: Environment
    mapping and Detail texturing are not supported on the Voodoo3. 

	VOODOO 5:  Mild to severe discoloration can sometimes occur with the Voodoo 5 
	when using the two or four pass anti-aliasing modes. In the launcher under Advanced
    Options, type "+S3TCEnable 0" into the command line and check the "Always use these
    settings" box. This should correct the problem.

	VOODOO 5:  You may experience a split-screen effect while quitting the game. This
    is a hardware issue with the video card switching from the D3D renderer to the Desktop.
    This will not affect Desktop settings.

	VIA CHIPSETS: If you see major graphic dropout in menus, or experience poor game
    performance, then you'll need to download and install the latest 4 in 1 drivers. You
    should also install the latest drivers available for your video card. The 4 in 1 driver
    can be obtained at the following link: http://www.viatech.com/drivers/index.htm

	AMD CHIPSETS: If you see major graphic dropout in menus, or experience poor game
    performance. Download the AGP Miniport and latest driver pack from the AMD website at:
    http://www.amd.com/products/cpg/bin/

	TNT/TNT2/GEFORCE:  Load Screens may appear corrupted when using a high (1600x1200)
    resolution setting.

	RIVA 128 CHIPSETS:  There are a number of rendering issues on the Riva128 which are
    due to a combination of hardware and driver issues. These can result in strange graphic
    anomalies particularly with Alpha blending.

	TNT/GEFORCE CARDS NOT DISPLAYING IN-GAME FOG:  Make sure that "Enable Fog Table 
	Emulation" is checked.  This option can be found in Control Panel. Double Click 
	the "Display" icon, click on the "Settings" tab, click on the "Advanced" button,
    click on the TNT/Geforce tab, click on the "Additional Properties" button, and
    click on the "Direct3D Settings" tab.

SOUND:  

	SOUNDBLASTER AWE 32/64 PCI:  There's a rare issue of sound choppiness and drop out.
    Make sure you have the latest driver from your sound card manufacturer and check
    your device manager for device conflicts.

	SUBTITLES NOT APPEARING WITHOUT A SOUNDCARD:  Subtitles will not appear in the game
    if you do not have a soundcard, if your soundcard is not detected, or if you have
    disabled your soundcard.

PERIPHERALS: 

	INTELLIMOUSE EXPLORER/OPTICAL PS2 ADAPTER:  If you're using the PS2 adapter for this
    mouse, NOLF can only use the left mouse button, middle/wheel button, and right mouse
    button.  The two side (Additional) buttons will only be detected if the latest
    intellipoint drivers are used and if the device connected directly into the USB port.
