Harness the power of a raging tornado and battle the forces of evil in an effort to save the world in Tornado Outbreak! Sinister forces have deceived players to believe that their destructive behavior will save an epic hero. In reality, they're working for evil. Players must take control of a dynamic tornado to tear through open environments, chew up the landscape and spit out everything in the way. The more destruction, the bigger the tornado grows. Work against time based, collection and point challenge, players search for hidden elements and enemies from another world. As the debris flies and the trail of destruction is left behind, players must battle bosses and defeat the forces of evil.
Tornado Outbreak 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.
XFB Real is required for some FMVs and loading screens to appear. Fixed with Hybrid XFB in 5.0-5874.
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.

This code runs Tornado Outbreak at 60FPS, but it will still drops to 30FPS when too much is happening. Overclocking may account for that.
