Issues

  • WARNING: This game does NOT work with Cedega 4.0 and above - attempting to do so will cause the entire screen to go black with no way out short of killing X - even when trying to run the game in a desktop window! Use 3.3.2 for best results.
  • Though most of the controls seem to work properly, at least one minor control mode has some flakiness - holding down the alt key to zoom in on an object does not work without also first holding down the control key, this can also be solved by releasing any keybindings for alt and left mouse button. In KDE this is "click and drag", which can be disabled in the Control Center.
  • After using Alt+Tab to switch between windows, you may not be able to input text. To fix this, press "alt" until you can.
  • In some installs the autopatcher will not work with the error Problem with GetTempFileName().
  • Fullscreen mode does NOT work, and attempting to switch the game to fullscreen will cause a crash. If the game gets caught in fullscreen mode (and stops running at all) edit the /windows/Application Data/SecondLife/user_settings/settings.ini file in Cedega's environment for the game (typically ~/.cedega/Second Life/c_drive/) and set FullScreen to FALSE.
