In the event of any problems, please ensure that your PC meets the minimum
specification as stated below.

Operating System Windows(r) 98/2000/ME/XP
Processor Pentium III 733MHz or comparable

Transform and Lighting is the performing of transform (moving and manipulating
shapes in 3D space) and lighting effects on your graphics card's GPU (Graphics
Processing Unit), rather than the CPU (Central Processing Unit). Games
programmed specifically with hardware T&L support free up valuable CPU cycles,
thus benefit from the extra efficiency and speed provided by the optimal design
of today's GPU's.

---------------

3. DirectX
----------

1. This demo requires DirectX 8.1 or higher to be installed. DirectX is not
included with this demo, but can be downloaded from Microsoft at the following
internet address:

http://www.microsoft.com/directx/


2. DirectX 8.1 and supported hardware

While there is a chance that the Freedom Fighters Demo will run with
non-DirectX compatible hardware, you may find that:

i) Sound quality suffers.
ii) The game runs slower.
iii) The game does not run at all.

If your sound card or video card does not support DirectX, please contact your
vendor.

4. Uninstall

down the list until you see Freedom Fighters Demo, select it and click on
Add/Remove to uninstall.


------------------------------
5. Troubleshooting
------------------------------
Note for Windows XP users:

Windows XP has a feature called Fast User Switching; this allows multiple users
sharing the same computer to have individual profiles and to swap their current
work spaces without logging off. Freedom Fighters does not support this feature
and it is not accessable during gameplay.

If you are experiencing graphical or sound problems please make sure you have
the latest drivers for your hardware installed. These can be downloaded from
your hardware manufacturers website or may be obtained from the hardware
manufacturer’s Technical Support hotline.

Video cards that use the 3DFX chip (Voodoo brand etc.) no longer have driver
support for DirectX libraries 8 and above. As Freedom Fighters requires
DirectX8.1 or higher these video cards can no longer supported.


-----------
6. Peripherals
-----------

Freedom Fighters supports Microsoft Windows-compatible keyboards and Mice.
