Players can equip themselves with an armory of more than 27 different weapons based on modern technology.

Known Issues

Black/white vertical lines

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: In Direct3D hardware modes thick black/white vertical lines appearing during standard gameplay.
  • Workaround: Go to Config - Video(GS) - Plugin Settings menu, and set Renderer to "OpenGL Hardware", or for Direct3D 9 & 11 hardware modes, set CRC Hack Level to "Partial(OpenGL Recommended)". Non-recommended alternative: In the plugin settings menu click Enable HW Hacks, go to Configure hacks and set skipdraw to '2'.

Luger's thermal vision (Lines)

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Thick black/white vertical lines appearing when Luger's night vision is activated.
  • Workaround: Go to Config - Video(GS) - Plugin Settings menu, and set Renderer to "OpenGL Hardware", or for Direct3D 9 & 11 hardware modes, set CRC Hack Level to "Partial(OpenGL Recommended)". Non-recommended alternative: In the plugin settings menu click Enable HW Hacks, go to Configure hacks and set skipdraw to '3' WARNING: This may introduce other graphical errors such as on the character selection menu, and game starting sequence.

Luger's thermal vision (Incorrect colors)

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: In hardware modes an incorrect color palette is displayed when Luger's thermal vision is activated. (Potentially completely bugged)

Non-recommended alternative: In the plugin settings menu click Enable HW Hacks, go to Configure hacks and set skipdraw to '3'. May remove color distortion (from purple to translucent). This setting may make her 'thermal'-vision usable. WARNING: Setting skipdraw to '3' may introduce other graphical errors such as on the character selection menu, and game starting sequence.

  • Type: Serious
  • Description: In hardware modes the bottom half of the screen doesn't render effects properly, sometimes obscuring it completely.
