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


Start up Windows and place the "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" DVD in your PC's DVD ROM drive. If your computer has Autorun enabled, the launcher will appear automatically. If your computer does not have Autorun enabled, please double-click on the 'My Computer' icon, then double-click the icon of your DVD ROM drive containing the "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" DVD. Next, click on Setup.exe and follow the on-screen instructions. You must have the DVD in your DVD ROM drive in order to play "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" after installing it. When the installation process for "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" has been completed, click on 'Start' under Windows, move your mouse to highlight 'Programs', 'Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate' and click on the 'Play Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate' shortcut.

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


"Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" requires Microsoft DirectX 9.0c. Therefore, the video and sound card drivers installed on your PC must also be DirectX 9.0c compatible.

Video codec:
"Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" requires Windows Media Codec V9. If this is not present on your system, please install the codec package.

You can find the installation file on Microsoft's web pages at the URL:

Windows XP / Vista 32bit / Windows(r) 7 32bit:
We recommend installing drivers (ideally certified by Microsoft) distributed by your hardware manufacturer for Windows XP. These are to be preferred over the drivers installed by Microsoft when setting up your computer.

Background applications:
"Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" makes full use of your system's resources. We therefore recommend closing all other programs before you start "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate".

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


You can start the configuration for "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" any time by clicking on the file HN_Setup.exe in the "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" directory or from the Start menu, in order to adjust your settings. Some of the settings in this menu refer to very specific technical details. If you are not sure which options to choose, or if "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" no longer starts up, click on the 'Defaults' button. This restores the presets, which should always enable you to run "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate".

Resolution: Set the screen resolution for "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate". The options listed in the pull-down menu depend on the video card and monitor used.

Windowed size: Adjusts the size of the window for playing "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" in windowed mode (if selected).

Antialias: Enables smooth borders. This looks good, but lowers the game performance. Disabled by default.

Texture resolution: Higher resolution textures look better, but they also require more memory on your video card.

View distance: Sets the distance to which graphics are calculated. Increasing the visual range lowers the performance, but greatly improves the game's appearance.

Update reflections: This sets the interval between calculations of reflections. Short intervals make your game look better at the cost of performance.

Grass detail level: This sets the density of grass displayed.

Particle detail: Sets the density of displayed particles in i.e. explosions and dustclouds.

Shadow detail level: Changes the display of shadows (not available in the minimal version).

Fullscreen: When activated (default), "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" will run in fullscreen mode.

Center window: If "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" is running in windowed mode, the window appears in the center of the screen.

Minimal Version: Starts an alternate executable with lower requirements, but lower graphical quality as well.

WideWindow (16:9): The same as widescreen, but in windowed mode.

Motion blur: Activates the motion blur, which makes movements look more realistic.

Enable sound: Enables sounds in "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate".

Enable music: Enables music in "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate".

4 channel surround sound: Enables surround sound (only if the required hardware is available).

Play Videos: Activates the video playback in the game.

Defaults: Starts the Benchmark to set the defaults accordingly.

Play: Saves the current settings and launches "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate".

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


MyMusic files:

Instead of using the music tracks from "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate", you can also play your own selection of music. To do so, simply place the music files in the "MyMusic" sub-folder of the "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" installation folder and access the Music Manager from the main menu in order to switch to your personal music selection.
You can also create new sub-folders under "MyMusic" and save whole CDs there.
The Music Manager can read the following formats: .WAV .WMA .MP3 .MP2 .OGG .AC3 .AIF .AIFF. Please note that you must first install the required Media codec. Such codecs are not part of "Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate".

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


Anti virus software can cause problems during gameplay. We therefore strongly recommend temporarily disabling anti virus software and other background applications while installing or playing the game.

Clicking and Hitching Track Sounds
This can be caused if your framerate is too low, and is technically unavoidable. Please check your sound card drivers and update them if necessary. Please also lower the visual range in the game or the resolution setup, as this may limit or remove the problem.

"Crash Time 4 - The Syndicate" does not support DirectX 7 or DirectX 8 video cards. Please use DirectX 9 compatible devices with Shadermodel 2.0 and HW T&L support. Integrated devices, so-called onboard chips, are not supported.

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