    Hello!

    I played this game alot back in the time when it was first released and have now recently started playing again. It's nice to see that this game still has loyal fans and the unofficial patch was a pleasant surprise.

    I recently finished the game and noticed that the game has problems displaying the different endings. Having reloaded and defeating Kerghan several times it's apparent that the game randomly skips certain ending scenes.
    This is quite annoying as those scenes is a great reward for finishing the game.

    Otherwise the game runs perfectly on my pc.
    I'm running it on Windovs wista Home Premium SP2 32-bit OS

    Anyone got any clue as to what could be causing this?

    Well, I would suggest adding -doublebuffer to aracanum.exe's run line.

    If you're curious, I pulled that from this thread, which has a good number of vista tips in it. :)

    It didn't work for me.

    Is there any way to watch all of the endings?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't they all just bink videos stored in the game folder?

    No, they're slides. BMP images + MP3 tracks.
