Why am I experiencing framerate issues in the game when running in 1280 x 960 or higher resolution?
Some cards may have issues when running the game after selecting 1280 x 960 or higher for the In-Game Resolution, You may experience severe hitching, a generally poor framerate, or occasional lock ups or crashes. If any of these issues occur when playing the game, please select a lower resolution.
Why is the game crashing after I select 1280x1024 or higher display mode?
The game may crash to the desktop or display an error message when you attempt to start a game after changing display modes in the setup screen. This occurs if your monitor or its driver does not support the display setting you selected.
If this occurs, we recommend that you start the game in Safe Mode by selecting the Play Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb (Safe Mode) shortcut in your start menu. Safe Mode restores the game to its default settings, which resets the display mode to 640x480.
If you have modified any controls, you will need to reassign them when you start the game again. You may need to select the correct driver for your monitor or set your monitor to Plug and Play to select higher display modes.
Why do I get a black screen after changing the in-game resolution?
When selecting a resolution in the Display Options screen, the screen may go black and display an "out of frequency message" or the game may display incorrectly. This occurs when you select a resolution than your monitor cannot display correctly. If this occurs, please press the left arrow to return to a lower resolution.
Why am I experiencing graphical issues when running the program in 16-bit resolution versus the 32-bit resolution?
The program is optimized for 32-bit color. We have provided the option to play in 16-bit color in order to accommodate users with lower end systems or graphics cards to enhance performance. When playing in 16-bit color, you may experience various graphics issues in the game. These include:
- Unsatisfactory color blending or blocky graphics, particularly in textures.
- Corruption at the seams of adjacent textures.
- Shadows may not display when they are enabled.
