Tornado Trouble!

Cate has come to Akron, Ohio, in search of clues relating to Project: Omega, an enigmatic Soviet plot that threatens to bring about World War III.

When her mission takes a sudden turn for the unexpected, she finds herself in a trailer park with ninja assassins all around and a tornado closing in.

III. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
------------------------------
NOTE: Before playing, you must install DirectX version 8.1 or higher. You can download Directx from Microsoft's website.

Once DirectX 8.1 is installed, double click the Nolf2.exe icon in the folder where you extracted the installation files. Within a few seconds, the launch window should appear. Once the launcher appears on the screen, you’ll be presented with the following options:

Install: This option will launch the InstallShield setup utility. Setup consists of a series of screens, each containing choices that you must make regarding your installation preferences. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete
installation. Once installation is complete, this option will be replaced by the "Play" option.

Display: This option only becomes available once installation is complete and will allow you to choose from a list of available display resolutions prior to running the game. Note that this will also occur automatically the first time the game is launched.

Options: This section contains options that can be used to turn various game features on and off and is only made available after installation is completed. These options should only be used if you encounter problems when running the game and should not be changed if everything is functioning normally.

Uninstall: This option becomes available only after the game has been installed. It allows you to easily remove the game files from your hard drive. Please note that certain installation files may become shared by other programs, so you may be prompted for confirmation before some of these files are removed. Also, your saved game folders will remain in case you want to reinstall at a later date.

Quit: Closes the Launcher application.

Play: Once installation is complete, the Install option will no longer appear, and the Play option will appear instead. Click on this to launch the game. The first time you launch, you will be prompted to choose a performance setting that fits your particular system configuration. Read the descriptions of each setting and choose the one that is the closest match for your hardware. Please note that choosing a setting higher than your system can support will likely result in unsatisfactory performance.

V. NOTES ON COMPATIBILITY
---------------------------

FUNCTIONALITY

No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy In H.A.R.M.s Way is designed to function with Windows 98/98SE/ME/2000/XP-compatible graphics and sound cards. Drivers for these devices are provided by Windows itself or the respective card manufacturers and may occasionally result in compatibility problems beyond our control.

No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy In H.A.R.M.s Way does not support the Windows® 95 operating system since the application requires proper installation and functionality of DirectX 8.1 or higher. Microsoft does not provide or support DirectX 8.1 for Windows 95.

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.

VI. KNOWN ISSUES
-------------------

Global:

Make sure that all appications that are running in the background such as Virus scanners,Desktop Utilites (menus), Media Players, and chat programs are disabled before running No One Lives Forever 2.


WINDOWS® 2000/XP:


-Windows 2000 users please download the latest service pack (Service Pack 3) before you play No One Lives Forever 2.

-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.


WINDOWS® 98/ME:

After quitting the application, users of these operating systems may not be able to restart nolf2.exe. This will be fixed for the final game. In the meantime, you may be able to get around the problem by pressing ctrl-alt-delete and manually shutting down "lithtech.exe". If "lithtech.exe" does not appear in the list, you'll need to reboot to play again. On some systems, upgrading to the latest critical and recommended updates through Windows update will fix the problem.

GRAPHICS:

ATI Radeon 7200: Textures on very thin polies (such as power lines) may appear to be broken into small pieces.

ATI Radeon 8500:

- When the hardware cursor option is enabled, the mouse cursor may appear black and white or appear corrupted. Also, the position of the cursor may be slightly off after changing performance options.

- Some detail brushes such as the shutters on windows may dissapear when viewed from a distance.

Matrox Parhelia: Some very early versions of this card may exhibit missing textures on some surfaces when weapons are fired or the keychain flashlight is used.

Nvidia Geforce I,II,III,IV: Running the game with outdated drivers (prior to 21.83) may result in crashes during gameplay. It is highly recommended that you first update to the latest detonator drivers available (currently v30.82) before playing.


SOUND:

Sound Blaster Live! Series: If your experiencing missing sound effects and speech, it's due to the outdated driver series (v.4.xx). It's highly recommended that you update to the latest series of drivers (v.5.xx) to correct this issue. To verify the driver version, click on the "Run" option in Windows and type in the folling "dxdiag" (without the quotes) and press enter. This will initiate DirectX Diagnostic Tool Menu. Within the menu select the "Sound" tab and on the right hand side is the drivers column. This column will provide the sound driver info as to what version is currently installed within the O.S.

Sound Blaster Audigy: Weapon fire and AI voices may stop playing during heavy firefights. The next driver revision for the audigy (not yet available at the time of release) should fix this issue. Also, EAX sound filtering effects on some weapon sounds may not reset correctly after climbing out of water or other areas.

Hercules Game Theater XP: The volume of certain sound effects may seem unnecessarily loud.

Diamond Monster Sound I&II: Music throughout the game may be muffled when using these cards.

NVidia Nforce Audio: All aspects of game audio suffer from high-pitched static and popping noises. Driver updates to solve this issue are currently in the works at Nvidia.

Turtle Beach Santa Cruz: If sounds seem missing or the volume of certain sounds changes erratically throughout the game, please install the latest driver (currently v.4161) from the manufacturer's web site. This should correct the problem.

Aureal Vortex I&II: The last available drivers for these cards with Vortex chipsets are not fully Direct 8.1 compatible. Therefore, these cards cannot be supported in Nolf2. Users of these cards may experience muffled background music, and missing or muffled sound and dialogue.

PERIPHERALS:

We're looking into issues with the Logitech Cordless Mouseman Optical mouse where the mouse will cease to function on some machines once NOLF 2 is initiated.
