================================================== ==============================

2. General Notes

================================================== ==============================
2.1. Display/Performance Settings

The Graphical Settings can directly impact the memory usage of the game. If your
computer lacks RAM memory, these settings should be lowered down accordingly.

The game has been tweaked to run well on both single and multi-core systems.
However, it will work best on a multi-core CPU and it is highly recommended to
experience the game to its full potential.

It is important to make sure the latest available drivers are installed.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.2. Optimal Settings

When launching the game for the first time, the game will attempt to detect the
optimal settings for your system by default. If the game is unable to fully
identify your computer, then the settings are going to be set on Medium by
default.

To test your settings, a benchmark mode is available. To run it, please go to
"My R.U.S.E.", then "My Options" and press the "Launch Benchmark" button.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.3. Saved Games

The Saved Games are stored in the following folders:
- For Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\%WindowsUserID%\Application Data\Ubisoft\RUSE
- For Windows Vista and Windows 7: C:\Users\%WindowsUserID%\SavedGames\Ubisoft\RUSE

Where %WindowsUserID% should be replaced by the name of your Windows session / account.


================================================== ==============================

3. Known Issues

================================================== ==============================

3.1. Installing Video Codecs

If you experience any problems to play the ingame videos, please update your video
codecs using the following ones:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.2. Installing Graphics and Motherboard Drivers

If you experience any graphical problems, please update your video and motherboard
drivers using the latest ones available. Links to the supported Graphics cards
manufacturers and the most popular motherboard manufacturers websites are available
at the end of this document.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.3. Installing Sound Drivers

If you experience any sound problems, please update your sound drivers using the
latest ones available. Links to the the most popular sound card manufacturers websites
are available at the end of this document.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.4. Installing DirectX

R.U.S.E. requires DirectX runtime libraries from August 2009 or later to run properly.
To get the latest version of DirectX, please visit:

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

DirectX is also provided on the install disc in the folder Support\DirectX and
automatically installed when you install R.U.S.E..

If you receive an error message about missing DLL files, reinstall DirectX from
the install disc or from the folder where the game has been installed to correct
the problem.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.5. Hints

* It is _not_ advisable to install the game into the Windows folder (usually
C:\Windows), a subfolder of the Windows folder, nor the root of the system
drive (usually C:\).

* It is recommended to close all other running programs before installing the
game, to reduce the risk of software conflicts.

* If you experience graphical corruption, make sure your graphics driver's
control panel is _not_ configured to override application settings.

* Vibration support is only available if using the Xbox 360 controller.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.6. Miscellaneous

* The game offers compatibility with CrossFire™, but the performance will be lower
than a single card from the CrossFire™ setup.

* Dual GPU solutions from Radeon families will cause flickering while in the game menus (eg : Radeon 3870X2 / Radeon 4870X2)

* AMD® Athlon™ 64 users could encounter all-around freezes during gameplay, especially when zooming in and out

4. Important Web Sites, Contact Information and Technical Support

4.1. Technical Support

Before contacting Ubisoft’s Technical Support Department, please first read
through the manual and the README file which are both available on the game disc.

Please also browse the Ubisoft Support pages available at:

http://support.ubi.com

This is the best way to find answers to common issues seen with our games.
From this site, you will also be able to enter the Ubisoft Solution Center,
where you can browse through our lists of Frequently Asked Questions, search
our database of known problems and solutions. Our FAQ lists are available
24 hours a day, 7 days a week and contains the most up-to-date information
available, including patches that can be downloaded free of charge. We update
these pages on a daily basis, so please check here first for potential solutions
to your problems.

To Contact Us:

IMPORTANT: Please make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements,
as our support representatives will be unable to assist customers whose computers
do not meet these criteria.

It is strongly recommended to generate a “DXDiag” (DirectX Diagnostic Tool) report

3. Once the DXDIAG file is open, click on the "Save All Information..." button.

non-support-related contacts, we no longer offer support via standard email.
You can send a webmail question from the Ubisoft Solution Center however.
Most webmail questions are responded to within two business days.

Return Policy: Please do not send any game returns directly to Ubisoft before contacting
Technical Support. It is our policy that game returns must be dealt with by the retailer
or online site where you purchased the product.
