VII - KNOWN ISSUES
------------------------------
- On slower machines or slower video cards, you may wish to disable the Shadows and Advanced Graphics Effects. This will improve performance.

- With a GeForce4 card or Radeon 9600 graphic card, and all four options (Shadows, Advanced Graphic Effects, Disable HW Pixel Shaders & Disable HW Vertex Shaders) in the launcher ticked, in Chapter 7 Mithral Hall (Defend the Gear), just after the first cutscene, select any character, move towards the Gears, knock down the troll, and tries to destroy them using the fire, the trolls fail to get destroyed.
To fix, relaunch the game, uncheck all four options, and return to Mithral Hall.

- Gemspark Mines - instructions on how to use Special item refers to Black Button instead of the Left Control Button.



VIII - Fixes for Patch 1.1
-------------------------
- Gemspark Mines, the first set of Orcs now completely spawns.

- Chapter 5, the raft no longer sinks to the bottom of the river after traveling some distance. After this point, the user is unable to continue the gameplay after this point.

- Completing the game, starting a New Game, and starts the intro IGC for Battlefield, the audio will now play.

- Install the game, selects Load Game, game saves no longer appear in the five slots in the Load Game screen.
