Warning! In order to launch the patched game, you might need to update your DirectX first.
Warning! We discovered that certain versions of K-Lite Codec Pack make the game unstable, causing crashes during video playback, errors in post-render processing effects, object texture disappearance, along with spontaneous terminations during the game, leading to CTDs. To avoid the problem, try switching off video playback and post-render effects in game settings, or launch the K-Lite Codec Pack uninstall procedure.
