In Lode Runner you're a highly trained Galactic Commando, deep in enemy territory. Your mission: to recover a fortune in gold, stolen from the Bungeling people by their power-hungry leaders. You'll be running, jumping, and climbing heroically, solving perplexing puzzles. With your laser pistol, you'll drill passageways through stone floors and barriers. To get through this mission alive, you'll need more than fleet feet and good looks. You'll need your quick wits and brains and more than just a little luck.

NES Global Problems

DirectX with NES Games

Most NES games suffer strange graphical issues when using the DirectX backend with some graphics drivers; notably NVIDIA. This is a driver bug.

As of 5.0-4869, the D3D driver bugs can be worked around by setting Ubershaders to Exclusive. It's unknown what exactly is going on with the driver that's causing Exclusive Ubershaders to work properly.
