007: From Russia with Love (aka 007: Liebesgrüsse aus Moskau in Germany and 007: Bons Baisers de Russie in France) is a video game featuring Ian Fleming's secret agent, James Bond. The game is based on the 1957 novel and the 1963 film of the same name. The game follows the storyline of the book and film, albeit adding in new scenes to make the game more action-oriented, as well as changing the affiliation of the main villains. Additionally, it features many elements of earlier Bond films to recreate the feel of the era such as the jet pack from Thunderball (1965) and the Aston Martin DB5 that debuted in Goldfinger (1964). From Russia with Love is also notable in that it is the first video game to use Sean Connery's likeness as James Bond and the first to include all new voice work by the actor. From Russia with Love is the last James Bond video game EA Games marketed before they lost the rights to Activision in 2006.


VP6 Videos

007: From Russia with Love uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing its videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on many graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling. See issue 7193. In 5.0-15515 or newer, this can be fixed with "Manual Texture Sampling" in the Graphics Settings → Advanced menu.


Bloom around lights is not emulated with default settings. To emulate such appropriately disable Store EFB Copies to Texture, also disable Defer EFB Copies to RAM to prevent bloom being visible through objects.


Non-Native Resolution

Using non-native resolutions will result in oddly colored lines on the edges of the screen. This can be addressed by enabling Vertex Rounding.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.


Config Setting Notes
Store EFB Copies to Texture Only Off Render bloom
Defer EFB Copies to RAM Off Layer bloom correctly
Vertex Rounding Hack On Correct odd lines at higher than native resolution
Manual Texture Sampling On Render VP6 video
