 Technical Issues

Problem: Throughout movie sequences constantly get pauses where sound and movie halt for a few seconds while the CDROM drive reads the next chunk of data.

Solution: If you have a VERITE chipset on your video card, try the following. When you first start the game, go to the SETTINGS menu. Then go to the SCREEN SETTINGS menu and select VESA 640x480. By default, the game starts up in a non-vesa VGA mode (320x200) which tends to be very slow with some of the video cards using the Verite chipset such as the 3D Blaster, the Intergraph Reactor and the Sierra Screamin 3D. After doing this you may need to restart the game for the changes to take effect.

Problem: I turned down the sound and cannot turn it back up again.

Solution: ighlight the volume you want to increase and right click to turn the sound up. Left clicking turns the sound bar down and right clicking turns it louder.

Problem: Game gives a Divide Error in Realms of the Haunting.

Solution: It's being run from the CD-ROM drive, needs to be run from the directory where you installed the game. If you installed to the default directory, this would be C:\Intrplay\ROTH

Problem: The game locks up on me after inserting the next CD.

Solution: Try lowering the screen resolution settings for ROTH.
