===Hanging===
 
On revisions higher than {{revision|4314}} special settings need to be used to avoid hanging on a black screen before the title screen appears. The PAL version can be started if Vsync and FPS Throttle are Off and Audio Throttle is On to control the speed, but such doesn't work for the NTSC version.

"Enable Idle Skipping" in the General config simply needs to be OFF for the game to work in later revisions like 3.0-721-dirty. Nothing else needs to be set for this game to work flawless.
