25 to Life
README file Version

Part 1: Things You Should Know

Please read through the DirectX section of this document. This section has information that is vital to successfully running 25 to Life on your system.

1.1 DirectX

This game is optimised for Microsoft's DirectX 9.0c. In order for you to play the game, you must have DirectX 9.0c compliant drivers for your videocard and sound card. Please note that although DirectX 9.0c is installed with the game, your video and sound card drivers will not be upgraded to DirectX 9.0c drivers.

You will need to obtain the latest DirectX 9.0c drivers from your card manufacturer or PC supplier. These drivers cannot be supplied by Eidos.

1.2 Memory and Performance

While the game will run fine in 256MB of RAM, yourplaying experience will be smoother if you have at least 512MB.

Regardless of how much memory you have, you can maximize your available memory and increase the overall performance of the game engine by doing the following:

Closing any open windows
Shutting down all other programs, including menu-bar programs like ICQ, AIM, MSN Messenger, etc…
Defragmenting your hard drive

Eidosrecommends that you have no other programs running at all while playing 25 to Life. Other programs, including system utilities and screen savers, can cause system degradation when playing games, and may conflict with the game for system resources, potentially resulting in instability and crashes.

1.3 Known Issues

If you are having trouble connecting, make sure that ports UDP 4659 and UDP 30125are open on your firewall or router. If your PC is behind a router, visit your router manufacturer’s website and download and install the latest firmware for your router model.
Alt-Tabbing may cause instability and performance issues during gameplay, and is not recommended.

Eidos is committed to providing customer support for our games on a continuing basis. In that spirit, there may be apatch for 25 to Life forthcoming; visit the Eidos website for more information.
