To install from the Bulletstorm DVD:
1. Start your machine and wait for the Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7 operating system to load.

2. Place the Bulletstorm DVD in the DVD drive.

3. Windows will automatically detect the DVD and launch the autorun options, from which the user can select to begin the installation. Follow the on-screen instructions to install Bulletstorm. If needed, DirectX 9.0c and Games for Windows - LIVE Client will be installed or upgraded during the game installation.

4. The installer will prompt for the CD Key which is provided either in your confirmation email, your game manual/packaging, or game card.

5. For XP users, the installation program adds the program group EA/Bulletstorm to your Start/Programs menu, and a shortcut to your desktop (optional). Click on this shortcut or alternatively click on the start button on your Windows task bar. Under Programs/Electronic Arts/Bulletstorm select "Bulletstorm" to play. For Vista/Win 7 users, the title will be added to the Games Explorer. From the Start menu, go to All Programs/Games and run Games Explorer.

Note: If the Auto insert notification feature has been disabled or the DVD is not recognized, run Autorun.exe from the root directory of the DVD to begin the installation program.

3. DirectX
----------
For your convenience, we have included DirectX 9.0c in the Bulletstorm installation package.

a) Installing DirectX 9.0c manually
Bulletstorm comes with DirectX 9.0c and will install it during installation. If you would like to install it manually, browse to the Bulletstorm installation package folder, open the "\DirectX" folder and click the on DXSETUP.exe

b) DirectX 9.0c and supported hardware
It is highly recommended that you ensure that your computer's components are utilizing the most recent DirectX 9.0c compatible software drivers. Please consult your card manufacturer for their newest drivers.

Scroll down the list until you see Bulletstorm, select it and click on Change/Remove (XP) or Uninstall (Vista/Win 7) to uninstall.


----------------------------
5. Default Graphics settings

6. Peripherals
--------------
The following peripherals are compatible with Bulletstorm:
Microsoft Windows compatible keyboard and mouse

-------------------------------
7. Troubleshooting/Known Issues
-------------------------------
Computer hardware manufacturers are constantly updating their driver software so that their hardware can play the latest software programs with the best possible performance. If your system is not using the latest drivers please consider obtaining an updated driver. Doing this may also give you benefits such as increased performance, the elimination of a technical problem and new component features.

It is not recommended to use Alt+Tab or Alt+Enter commands in-game, as game functionality may be interrupted.

If the game audio sounds unbalanced, please ensure that any audio enhancements available to your sound card are disabled.

ATI Catalyst Control Center users who have deselected the Anti-Aliasing option "Use Application Settings" should disable Anti-Aliasing in the Bulletstorm Video settings.

It is highly recommended that you ensure that your computer's components are utilizing the most recent DirectX 9.0c compatible software drivers. Please consult your card manufacturer for their newest drivers.
