1) Update v. 1.2 Information

-This update enables support for joysticks and game pads using Microsoft(TM) Direct Input. The joystick

or game pad must be calibrated before entering the game. Configuring the joystick or game pad is similar

to configuring the keyboard and mouse. Please refer to the Requiem manual for additional configuration

information.

-Before mapping the joystick through the configuration window, make sure the joystick is centered. Select

the game command to be configured with the mouse. Now press the joystick button or move the joystick in

the direction you want. Return the joystick to its center position.

-Computers with multiple CD-ROM drives can now play the game on any of the CD-ROM drives.

-There is now full support for the 3Dfx(TM) Voodoo3 hardware accelerator. PLEASE NOTE: There are known

incompatibilities with the recently released Quake 3 beta drivers. Using these drivers witht the 1600x1200

resolution could cause unexpected errors. Please use non-beta drivers with Requiem: Avenging Angel.

-Enhancements have been made to all of the boss characters. Their AI has been refined and they now flash

red when taking damage.

-Support for 3D sound has been expanded and enhanced. Sound cards equipped with Aureal(TM)'s A3D

technology are now supported (positional only, not reverb). Any sound cards supporting DirectSound 3D

are now supported. More accurate 3D sound emulation in software is now possible if you choose to use

DirectSound 3D Software from Microsoft or RSX from RAD GameTools.

-The multiplayer portion of the game now gives you additional options which may improve the

performance of the game if you are playing over a LAN. The network packet send rate can be adjusted from

within the game. When playing a multiplayer game, press the ESC key to view the Multiplayer Menu. Use

the up and down arrow keys to choose either the "Server Send Rate" or the "Client Send Rate" option.

Try increasing or decreasing the value using the right and left arrow keys. The optimal value depends on

your computer's speed as well as the quality of your network connection.

**Note - The default send/receive rates for Requiem are.

Lan: client and server send rates are 20/sec

Internet client send rate is 15/sec

Internet server send/receive rate is 10/sec

-A new command line option has been added: noNetworx

Requiem checks to see if it was launched from a game lobby during startup. On some systems this can

result in an attempt to establish a network connection by dialing a modem line or an ISDN line.

The command line option noNetworx will disable this check. You can then play a single player game

without the machine attempting to establish a network connection.

If you are experiencing unwanted network connection attempts please try running Requiem with the

following command line: noNetworx

To add this command line option follow the directions listed below.

1. Go to Start | Settings | TaskBar & Start Menu... | This will open the the taskbar properties window.

2. Select the "Start Menu Programs" tab and click on the "Advanced" button.

3. Double click on Programs | 3DO | Requiem. To the Right you should see the contents of the Requiem Start Menu.

4. Select the icon labeled as "Play Requiem" by clicking on it once.

5. Go to menu at the top of the window and select File | Properties.

6. Add the word noNetworx (include the capital N) to the end of command in the Target box.

For example, the target (or "command line") "C:\Program Files\3do\Requiem\requiem.exe" would change to

"C:\Program Files\3do\Requiem\requiem.exe" noNetworx

7. Select "OK" after making the changes. Close the window and enjoy playing Requiem.

2) Update v. 1.1 Information

THIS UPDATE ONLY AFFECTS THE DIRECT3D VERSION OF REQUIEM:

AVENGING ANGEL.

-This update enables dithering in the Direct3D version of Requiem: Avenging Angel for greatly improved

visual quality; game textures will appear smoother.

-Additionally, this update disables auto-mipmapping; all textures in Requiem: Avenging Angel were

designed to look best without the use of mipmaps.

In essence, this patch greatly improves visual quality on all 3D accelerator cards running in D3D mode.
