HACKS: Skipdraw 5. Although it fixes the full screen shadow problem, it also introduces a new glitch. Naming the radar outline disappears. Moreover the mothership menu has disappearing menu items. eg. Pox's lab is gone with this hack enabled. No "Press Start" sign during start screen., Runs fine in hardware mode at 3x upscale. Skipdraw 5 needed in this mode. Check known issues. Software mode has no graphical issues. The game is fully playable. Be aware that sw mode is highly demanding. With above PC specs it uses around 70% CPU power! Can get slowdowns in intense fightings. Yuri



Widescreen support

The game has built in 16:9 widescreen mode. Set it in the games Options > Display > Widescreen menu.

Known Issues

Shadow like glitch

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: In-game a sort of "shadow" is on the screen, but blocky showing vague things of the environment. The glitch is present entire game.
  • Workaround: Switch to software mode and play it there (highly CPU demanding, but usable).

Alternatively: Use Skipdraw 5 hack. Character shadows (and some post processing effects) disappear and has texture popping issue at far away objects.

Software mode object falling

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Playing in software mode at intense fighting scenes, the game objects tend to fall through the level. (eg. grabbing vehicles with the saucer, NPCs get sometimes stuck in the ground). The player character can have this issue too, but very rarely. Probably is in connection with the demanding CPU usage.
  • Workaround: Switch back temporary to hardware mode.

Progressive mode kills menu usage

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Switching progressive scan on, cripples the semi transparent menu usage. It makes the game use insane amount of PC resources. eg. "60Hz warning" and "load game, new game" option at the beginning, pause menu during gameplay. Problem only exists when Skipdraw 5 is is off.
  • Workaround: Do not use progressive scan or use software mode.

(Separate Tester) Above issue not found, used Progressive Scan, and no problems at all. Also, it seems that the game gets blurrier when you use PS, so I recommend not using it at all, and if the above issue is true, doubly so. Still need to use Skipdraw 5 or Software mode though.
